Conducting your work with honesty

During your studies at London Met you need to approach your work with academic integrity, that is to say, you must take an honest approach and do not falsify data, pass off the work of others as your own or cheat in any way. This relies on:

  • truth
  • honesty
  • trust

By embracing these values you give credibility to yourself and the work you produce. This means respecting the work of others and demonstrating original thought through critical thinking.

The University's academic regulations are there to penalise those who do not approach their work with academic integrity.

If you use other people's work and pass it off as your own without due acknowledgment it is known as plagiarism - see the section in Library Matters on Plagiarism for more detail.
