How Suspected Academic Malpractice is Handled

Dealing with a case of suspected malpractice by an undergraduate or postgraduate taught student always starts at School level and may be referred upwards to Faculty and/or University level depending on the severity of the case and the level of the student. 

The School has an appointed Academic Malpractice Officer whose role it is to oversee the detection of malpractice and to handle all allegations of suspected malpractice in accordance with the University’s Procedure for Handling Academic Malpractice Cases

Where plagiarism is suspected in relation to a course unit delivered by another School, the School which owns the course unit will conduct the initial investigation and provide the evidence of the alleged academic malpractice.  AMBS will then take forward the allegation.
