Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism

Academic misconduct is any type of cheating that occurs in relation to a formal academic exercise. The University takes all reported incidences of academic misconduct seriously and seeks to ensure that they are dealt with efficiently and appropriately.

It is your responsibility to read the University of Edinburgh’s official information and guidance about academic conduct and be aware of the regulations. The Academic Services conduct section of the University website includes definitions of forms of misconduct including plagiarism, collusion, falsification and deceit.
