Student conduct and disciplinary procedures
In the interests of the entire City community, we expect certain standards of individual behaviour. These are broadly set out in the 'We are City' student charter statement. City also has a duty to maintain the academic integrity of its awards and action will be taken where cheating or other unfair behaviour by students is identified.
In addition to City and You, all students are expected to abide by our Regulations and supporting policies governing student activities which are available in City’s Student Policies and Regulations. This includes our Student Bullying and Harassment policy, which sets out some specific behaviours that are unacceptable in the City environment.
Particular students will also need to follow relevant Codes of Conduct, for example:
- The requirements of any Professional, Statutory or Regulatory body accrediting your programme of study (your Programme Handbook will give you more information)
- The Framework for Good Practice in Research applies to all research students
- The Research Ethics Framework applies to all research students
The Learning Development Centre has provided the online resource StudyWell to help students avoid academic misconduct and understand, in particular, what constitutes plagiarism and how the tool TurnItIn can be used to prevent plagiarism.
Allegations of misconduct or a breach of expected conduct, as defined in the University’s Regulations and/or Codes of Conduct, will be managed in accordance the principles outlined in the Student Disciplinary Policy and in accordance with Senate Regulation 13: Student Discipline.
