Summary of Changes from Previous Version

August 2020 – Editorial changes in accordance with GOV10B; references to ‘sanctions’ changed to ‘penalties’ to clarify wording/update terms and ensure consistency with the Student Misconduct Rule. A copy of the policy prior to these changes has been captured in the University’s records management system.


July 2020 - This revision of the Academic Integrity Policy is a major review of the previous version and an output of the Academic Governance Review Project. Procedural information has been moved to the Academic Integrity Procedure. This policy was approved by Academic Senate at its meeting on 11 September 2019 (resolution AS 19/95) in accordance with delegation schedule 1 GOV 9, to take effect from 1 July 2020. Further edits have been made in accordance with delegation schedule 1 GOV 10B where the text referenced policies that are still undergoing review. These references will be updated as the reviewed policies are published.
