The University takes this issue very seriously and students have been expelled or had their degrees withheld for cheating in assessments. It is important that students having difficulties with their work should seek help from their tutors rather than be tempted to use unfair means to gain marks. Students should not risk losing their degree and undermining all the work they have done towards it.
A3.13.2 Any form of cheating is strictly forbidden under this regulation but, in order to assist understanding, a number of specific forms of cheating are described. These include but are not limited to the following examples:
