This policy forms part of the Institution’s Academic Regulations and sets out how the Institution considers academic and general misconduct by students.

As members of the community, all students are expected to conduct themselves with due regard to the Institution’s good name and reputation. Students are expected to always uphold the Institution’s academic and professional standards.

Within the academic environment, students are expected to behave in a way that does not disrupt or impede the learning of others or seek to gain an unfair advantage. A fundamental principle of the Institution’s academic and assessment framework is that all students should be judged on their own ability and contribution. Therefore, all work must be original, created entirely by the student for the purposes of the assessment, and appropriately referenced.

The Institution considers misconduct of any kind to be a serious matter and will seek to always protect its standards rigorously. When concerns are raised, the Institution will carry out inquiries and determine whether any action is required. The Institution is entitled to apply sanctions for student misconduct. These may include, but are not limited to, failing grades on a course or course component, suspension, or expulsion from the program.


This policy and process is subject to review and may change at any time during your program.  The Institution will notify students of any substantive changes to the policy.
