About Academic Integrity
Academic Integrity supports institutions in implementing a consistent and unified approach to integrity training. Made up of five staff-facing modules and five student-facing modules, the programme ensures that every member of the university community is on the same page when it comes to what constitutes best academic practice in their role – substantially reducing the risk of misconduct.
The student-facing modules provide a well-rounded guide to studying with integrity, emphasising the positive values, skills, and behaviour necessary throughout their studies and post-graduation.
The staff-facing modules demonstrate how to make use of academic integrity tools in a way that has a lasting impact – addressing key issues such as contract cheating, assessment, technology, and group work.
