Summary

Student Reaffirmation of Academic Integrity Under Approved Changes to Delivery and Assessment of TU Dublin Programmes

Arising from the unforeseen emergency measures required for the containment of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the University enacted contingency Quality Assurance procedures (Approved by Academic Council on March 23, 2020). Under the referred enactment, examinations invigilated in the traditional manner will not take place in May and all programmes have moved towards alternative assessment arrangements.

This is a reaffirmation that, each student is responsible for knowing and abiding by TU Dublin Academic Regulations and Policies. Any student violating these regulation/policies will earn an 'F Grade' in the course and will be reported to the University for the violation. Some guidelines towards compliance with Academic Integrity are outlined overleaf.

By signing this form, I understand and will abide by the University Regulations and Policies covering Academic Integrity. Therefore, I declare that any individual work being submitted for examination is entirely the product my own effort.  For all group assignments, I accept that each member of the group is responsible for the academic integrity of the entire submission. I will retain a copy of this agreement for future reference.
