Academic Misconduct

More advice and FAQ coming to this page soon

You may find that following the submission of an assessment or the sitting of an exam that you receive a letter from the University saying that you are being investigated for academic misconduct or a breach of regulations. A breach of regulation may take form in one of the following ways:

• Plagiarism
• Collusion
• Contracting someone to write an assignment for you
• Importation of unauthorised material into an exam
• Use of a mobile telephone in an exam
• Copying another candidate in an exam

This is not a complete list and for more information we suggest you read the regulations here.

You can also read a guide written by UEL here.

If an allegation of academic misconduct is made against you we suggest you complete our Contact Form and let us know what the allegation is and whether you have a meeting scheduled and require our support.  We can accompany you, availability allowing, to any meetings and panels that you are asked to attend (we require a minimum of 48 hours notice).

We know that this may be a very worrying time for you however if this is your first offence the meeting will an opportunity discuss where you went wrong and to try and prevent you getting into the same situation again.
