An assessment offence is a breach of the regulations covering assessment.
Assessment offences include plagiarism, fraudulent reporting of source material and exam offences.
If an allegation of an assessment offence is made against a student, a formal procedure is selected depending on the allegation, the type of assessment the allegation applies to, and whether this is a first-time offence or not.
More information on the procedure can be found on the Academic Registry webpages.
Please contact your personal tutor or advisor if you need support with an allegation of an assessment offence. If you're not sure who your personal tutor or academic adviser is, you can contact a member of support staff in your School or Institute. Contact details are available on the student support contacts page.
