Academic Honesty and Plagiarism

alt text



"The most important attribute that The University of Melbourne would like to see in its graduates is a profound respect for truth and for the ethics of scholarship. This is important because we want our graduates to be capable of independent thought, be able to do their own work, and to know how to acknowledge the work of others."

Professor Peter McPhee, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic



We expect all students to visit the University of Melbourne site on plagiarism and make sure that they are familiar with the University policy on this.

  • In line with this policy, we require that all students complete a Plagiarism Declaration for each subject in which they are enrolled in each semester. This will usually be submitted online through the subject website on the LMS.
