Academic integrity and plagiarism

What is academic integrity?

At the University of Leeds, students are part of an academic community that shares ideas and develops new ones. As part of this, you need to learn how to interpret and present other people's ideas and combine them with your own to produce academic work. This is academic integrity.

An important part of academic integrity is making sure that you avoid plagiarism by correctly acknowledging the work of others.

Our Academic integrity tutorial (activity) will introduce you to some key academic skills to help you develop as an independent learner and critical thinker; it takes around 60 minutes to complete.
