Academic integrity is about working to a core set of values which help to guide and support all academic work. These include honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility.*

Here at Leeds Beckett University we promote academic integrity and will help you to understand the meaning of good academic practice throughout your time here. 

We will investigate students who are suspected to have fallen short of good academic practice and will provide learning opportunities to enable students to avoid future breaches of the academic integrity regulations. There are four categories of investigation, and investigatory processes are proportionate to the suspected breach. All categories of investigation are carried out at school level.

A breach of the academic integrity regulations is potentially serious and the School Academic Misconduct Board has the power to withdraw a student from the university if they are found to have committed an offence.

More information can be found on Academic Regulations Section 10, or download our student factsheet from the links below.
