C1.1.1 Introduction

  • 1.1 Assessment, in any form, is an opportunity for a student to demonstrate their learning. Equally, it is the means by which the University tests whether a student has achieved the objectives of their programme of study and met the standards of an award.

    1.2 These regulations set out the standard of academic integrity Oxford Brookes University expects of its students and that it believes to be consistent with upholding its duty to safeguard both the legitimate interests of students and the University’s academic reputation. 

    1.3 Students are therefore required to ensure they understand the University’s expectations regarding academic integrity in all forms of assessment. Detailed information regarding students’ responsibilities with regard to assessment can be found in A3.3 Students' Responsibilities.

    1.4 Further guidance regarding citing references and avoiding plagiarism can be found on the Brookes Library website.
