‘At Griffith University, academic integrity means acting with the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility in learning.’


Academic integrity is an extension of your own moral code and an integral part of education and learning. In order to make sure you are developing your own skills and that you are prepared for challenges in the workplace, you must approach your studies and degree with your own efforts.
