What is academic integrity?

Academic integrity is the ethical code of academia, which includes values such as avoiding cheating, plagiarism, distorting the work of others, or fabricating information.

In order to adhere to high standards of everyone's academic integrity, academic should:

  • Be honest pursuit of knowledge;
  • Trustworthy, knights believe in others, cooperate and share with others to explore their potential height;
  • To be fair to all by setting clear standards, practices and procedures; to interact fairly with others;
  • Respect a wide range of opinions and ideas to expand the scope of knowledge; and
  • Responsible for maintaining personal integrity in academics and research; and taking action to prevent illegal behavior.


The student handbook presented by the Registry is designed to help you avoid the common pitfalls of plagiarism and maintain your intellectual integrity.
