If you are currently undertaking study towards a graduate qualification, it is your responsibility to ensure you understand and comply with the regulations of the University.
Code of Practice for Graduate Students
The Code of Practice sets out the University's guidelines for those graduate courses examined by scrutiny of an extended research dissertation and an oral examination only*. It includes sections on what is expected of you as a research student, and what you can expect of your Principal Supervisor and your Advisor. The Code will be supplemented by additional information specific to your Faculty or Department which will be provided during your induction and through a Course Handbook or similar which may be in hard copy or online.
* The Ph.D., Eng.D., and research elements of the Ed.D., together with M.Phils. examined by thesis and oral only.
The Research Office has also produced a Research Integrity checklist, to assist students and supervisors in addressing issues of research integrity.
