Full subject description
Ensuring academic integrity is vital to protecting the standards and esteem of the University of Melbourne’s degrees. Every student has an interest in protecting and supporting the good reputation of the University. Ethical practice in scholarly work and professional behaviour are recognised as important graduate attributes, and are an essential criterion of workplace professionalism. Academic integrity goes beyond the policing of university assessment and is part of a graduate's formation as a professional, underpinning their behaviour in the workplace, and reflecting on their personal honesty and integrity in all aspects of life.
This module is required for all graduate students and should be completed prior to the commencement of studies.
If you are an undergraduate student, you do not have to complete this module. Undergraduate students will be introduced to the concepts of academic integrity as part of their coursework early in their degree. This will include the opportunity to practice and assess the application of these concepts.
It is important that all University of Melbourne students understand their responsibility to conduct themselves in an ethical manner in all aspects of their studies.
This introductory online module will guide you through some short exercises on topics including referencing, using sources, writing and note taking. Complete the academic integrity module by taking the self-assessment quiz to help consolidate your understanding and management of academic integrity issues as a student of the University of Melbourne.
Allow 10-15 minutes.
