Important update regarding arrangements for Academic Misconduct Panels during COVID-19 pandemic:
In line with Government advice to limit contact as far as possible, Academic Misconduct Panels will take place via video/telephone call for the foreseeable future. If you receive an invitation to attend a panel meeting, you will be given details of your options and the support available to you.
April 2021: We are currently dealing with a large number of cases and it may take longer than usual to arrange an Academic Misconduct Panel. We will be in touch with you as soon as are able to but if you have other work due for submission and are unclear about how to avoid similar allegations in future, please take the 'Avoiding Plagiarism' course which you will find on Moodle and discuss any concerns with your personal tutor. Other support is available and information and links are provided below.
