    Academic integrity is important for all students at the University of Adelaide. The purpose of the module is to help you understand what academic integrity is and how to achieve it.

     The principles of honesty, trust, respect, fairness and responsibility underpin academic integrity. As you work through the module, you will learn how to apply these principles to help you achieve academic success.

    At the University of Adelaide, staff and students are all responsible for maintaining academic integrity. The Academic Integrity Policy applies to all students enrolled in a University of Adelaide program.

However, if you want to refresh your understanding, you are welcome to complete it, or to look at our other resources.
