Academic honesty and plagiarism


Attention is drawn to University policy and regulations on honesty in academic
work, and to the disciplinary guidelines and procedures applicable to breaches of such
policy
and
regulations.

With each assignment, students will be required to submit a signed declaration that
they are aware of these policies, regulations, guidelines and procedures. For group
projects, all students of the same group should be asked to sign the declaration.
For assignments in the form of a computer-generated document that is principally
text-based and submitted via VeriGuide, the statement, in the form of a receipt, will be
issued by the system upon students uploading of the soft copy of the assignment.
Assignments without the receipt will not be graded by teachers. Only the final version of
the assignment should be submitted via VeriGuide.
