Additional Course Outline Information
All forms of cheating and dishonest practice are taken seriously and penalties will result. Students should refer to Regulation J of the General Course and Examination Regulations.
Dishonest practice is viewed very seriously and can bring punishments as severe as expulsion from the university. Be particularly careful not to plagiarise, to copy or to allow your work to be copied. These are all forms of dishonest practice. If you are uncertain about this, please consult your lecturer.
