Information for undergraduates

Good Academic Conduct

What is Good Academic Conduct? Find information and resources to help you produce your own work at its best.

By ‘good academic conduct’ we are referring to what we expect of you in your assessments. We expect you:

  • To write in your own words, with any quotations clearly marked as such.
  • To reference where you are getting your facts, ideas and arguments from, if they are not your own, so that a reader can follow these up for themselves.
  • To acknowledge the help that you have got from anyone else so that only your own work is given credit.
