Academic integrity

Academic integrity is about presenting academic work in a moral, ethical and honest way. It means using ideas, knowledge and information to develop your own insights, not presenting someone else's work as your own or trying to gain an unfair advantage. It also means acknowledging the work of others when you include it in your work.
