University policy and procedures for academic misconduct
The University of Melbourne believes that excellence in teaching and learning can be achieved in an intellectual environment where academic integrity is highly valued and carefully upheld. Its policy on academic honesty and plagiarism is based on two core values:
- Education and awareness-raising are fundamental in advancing respect for truth and for the ethics of scholarship
- Work submitted for assessment purposes must be the independent work of students or approved groups of students to demonstrate their mastery of subject objectives.
