Academic integrity is about honesty. It involves being responsible for ethical scholarship. It also involves knowing what academic misconduct is, and how to avoid it.
The Faculty of Arts requires students and staff to demonstrate academic integrity when they conduct and present their research.
AIM is designed to help you develop your capacity to work with academic integrity and avoid infringing academic misconduct rules.
All students enrolled in first year Faculty of Arts units have access to the AIM module in MyLO.
For help with academic integrity, try the following:
Contact academic staff during consultation hours. As they will be marking your assignment, it will help you to find out what their expectations are.
Unit outlines may give you valuable help with academic integrity, particularly on referencing practice.
Many Schools have their own referencing and assignment writing guides. These are generally located in the resources for students on the School's website.
The Library's guide provides comprehensive information on various referencing styles.
Student Advisers can provide you with advice on how to resolve challenges that may be affecting your University studies.
