Academic Integrity involves you being open and honest and taking personal responsibility for your work. Academic Integrity includes:
- Citing and referencing so you avoid plagiarism and presenting other people's work as your own.
- Not cheating. For example, using notes in an exam, or copying from another student's work,
- Not falsifying information, findings, observations or results,
- Not colluding with others. For example, letting your work be copied by another student,
- Using information appropriately, this includes respecting Copyright as well as other people's privacy, and

- Honesty and Trustworthiness - Be honest, sincere and seek the truth.
- Responsibility - Be accountable for one’s own actions.
