Academic integrity

Demonstrating academic integrity is about producing and submitting assessments in an honest and fair way, acting and communicating ethically, and showing respect for the work of others.

Academic integrity

Deakin expects its staff and students to understand and demonstrate the values of 'honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility', that is, to act with academic integrity. But what does that mean exactly? It means that you must:

  • Submit your own work, sit your own tests, and do your own examinations.
  • Acknowledge others’ work that you have used in your assessments and other tasks.
  • Follow instructions, guidelines and rules for all assessment tasks.
  • Provide accurate and truthful documentation to the University.
  • Help build a community of students who act with academic integrity by encouraging other students to act with integrity.
