What are my academic obligations as a university student?

Students have an obligation to work independently and apply scholarly academic conventions in examinations and other forms of assessment tasks. Any form of cheating, plagiarism or collusion, or other forms of dishonesty, devalues the quality of student learning and undermines the academic standards of the University. There are serious consequences for students who do not act honestly and with integrity during their studies.
