Academic Integrity for Students
Become an Academic Integrity Ambassador
The Student Academic Skills Team is now recruiting volunteer student Ambassadors to promote and foster a culture of Academic Integrity at the University.
Academic Integrity Ambassadors will act as role models and student voices of Academic Integrity through the organisation and running of workshops, support with the organisation of initiatives, events, colloquiums and panels and assistance with the creation of educational resources. Ambassadors will also act as a link to students and Academic Course Coordinators in their Faculty.

Advertisements for Contract Cheating Services
Some websites or services may advertise "homework help", or offer to complete your assignments for you. This is contact cheating. Often, these services deliberately try to look like legitimate tutoring or study skills sites. Some even offer prizes or other incentives if you promote their services or upload your course materials or assignments.
Providing or promoting contract cheating services is illegal in Australia. Using these services is a breach of the Academic Integrity Policy.
- Do not use any service that offers to provide answers or complete your work for you.
- Never share your work online, as it may be sold by cheating services to other students. This includes assignments and notes.
- If you see an advert for a suspicious service either on campus or online, report it to us. Let us know when and where you saw the advert, and we will investigate.
- For free support from experts, head to the University's Writing Centre or the Maths Learning Centre.
