Academic & research integrity

Academic integrity is fundamental to learning, teaching and research at UOW. It involves upholding ethical standards in all aspects of academic work, including learning, teaching and research. It involves acting with the principles of honesty, fairness, trust and responsibility and requires respect for knowledge and its development.

Ugh! Third cold this year.

My brain’s not working and I don’t know if this assignment’s any good.

Maybe I can get some help online.

Hmmm. I’ve got some of those.

Wow, that was easy!

That website never helped me, they just sold my essays to other students.

Now the uni knows and I’m facing a disciplinary board.

I had no idea sharing old assignments was wrong.

Academic integrity involves the ongoing fostering of a complex network of strategies and responsibilities across the UOW community. It is therefore vital to the work of students, teachers, researchers, coordinators and administrators.

At UOW, we are committed to providing an educational approach to academic integrity, recognizing that students need to be supported to develop and demonstrate academic skills.
