Plagiarism Reproducing the work of someone else without attribution. When a student submits their own work on multiple occasions this is

known as self-plagiarism.

Collusion Working with one or more other individuals to complete an assignment, in a way that is not authorised.

Copying Reproducing and submitting the work of another student, with or without their knowledge. If a student fails to take reasonable

precautions to prevent their own original work from being copied,

this may also be considered an offence.

Impersonation Falsely presenting oneself, or engaging someone else to present as oneself, in an in-person examination.

Contract cheating Contracting a third party to complete an assessment task, generally in exchange for money or other manner of payment.

Data fabrication and

falsification Manipulating or inventing data with the intent of supporting false

conclusions, including manipulating images.
