COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

The UK’s higher education sector has a world-class reputation, founded on high standards and outstanding quality. Academic integrity is a major contributor to this. However, academic misconduct is a growing problem globally, and presents a threat to the reputation of higher education worldwide.

 

QAA with the support of the Academic Integrity Advisory Group has developed an Academic Integrity Charter. It is intended to provide a baseline position upon which UK providers, as autonomous institutions, can build their own policies and practices to ensure that every student’s qualification is genuine, verifiable and respected.

 

 

The Charter is also available in Welsh.

 

Sign up to the Charter

QAA and the UK Academic Integrity Advisory Group invite UK universities and colleges to sign up to this Academic Integrity Charter during the academic year 2020-21.

 

Signing up to the Charter represents an institutional pledge to implement its principles and commitments which include working with staff and students and, in collaboration across the sector, to protect and promote academic integrity, and take action against academic misconduct.

 

To sign up, simply contact us by email, stating the name of your organisation. Use the button below or email: academicintegrity@qaa.ac.uk.
