5. Cases to be referred to the University's Committee of Enquiry

Cases to be Referred to the University's Committee of Enquiry
5.1

Informing the Director of Academic Integrity

The College's Academic Integrity Officer should inform the Director of Academic Integrity in writing, who shall confirm either that:

  1. a case exists and inform the College (or nominee) and the Director of Academic Services that a Committee of Enquiry should be convened; or
  2. that no case exists and that no further action should be taken.

In some cases the Director of Academic Integrity may decide that poor referencing has occurred. In such instances the student should be referred to their Tutor for advice and guidance on referencing. Once they have met with their Tutor students should then be asked to sign a statement confirming that they have received advice and understand referencing conventions.

5.2

If a case exists the candidate shall be informed in writing by Academic Services of the allegation and that a Committee of Enquiry will be constituted to consider the case.
