Academic Integrity and Referencing

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity means acting with the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility in learning and research.


Referencing supports academic integrity. When you reference, you acknowledge the work of others and their contribution to the development of your ideas.

Most health and communities courses require the APA referencing style. Check with your course examiner if you are unsure.
