Understanding Academic integrity
The Academic honesty & plagiarism site brings together information on the policies and procedures that the ANU has in relation to academic honesty and plagiarism; gives students tips on how to avoid plagiarism; and provides strategies for staff to deal with the issue.
Tutors are not meant to be all things to all students. It is inevitable that you will have students come to you with issues that you think ….”this is not my responsibility,” or “I’m not equipped to help them.” The likelihood is that the ANU does have a service area to provide support to the students.

The aim is to assist students to develop their academic, critical thinking and communication strategies.
