What is academic integrity?

'Academic integrity’ describes the values held to be essential in university study in the UK. 

  • Accuracy – making sure that your work is free from errors.
  • Honesty – being truthful about which ideas are your own and which are derived from others, and about the methods and results of your research.
  • Fairness – not trying to gain an advantage by unfair means: for instance, by passing off others’ work as your own.
  • Responsibility – taking an active role in your own learning: for instance, by seeking out the information you need to study effectively.
  • Respect – for your fellow students, your tutors, and the work of other scholars.
