Misconduct process and penalties
Any suspicion of copying, plagiarism or collaboration will be reported to the Senate Office under the Code of Student Conduct, as will any other allegation of behaviour that contravenes the instructions for your examination.
If you are reported for suspected misconduct, you will be asked to attend an interview with the Senate Assessors for Student Conduct.
Please do not put your degree at risk. The penalties applied under the Code of Student Conduct can have the effect of lowering your GPA, or causing you to fail a course which, in turn, could prevent you from achieving your award.
