Academic Ethics

The University maintains a strict code of conduct protecting the integrity of its academic standards and processes. Violations of the code bring disrepute to the University, affect the entire University community, and will thus be punished.

Plagiarism. Presenting the work of somebody else as one's own is not permitted under any circumstances.

Cheating. Receiving unauthorized help before, during, or after examinations is not permitted under any circumstances.

Cases of plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty or unethical behavior are reviewed by the School Council Chaired by the Dean of the school. Students found guilty of violating the code of academic ethics face a range of sanctions, including failing the course concerned, suspension, or dismissal from the University.
