Australia’s universities have a strongly held view that contract cheating is a threat to academic integrity and will not be tolerated in Australia’s higher education sector. It undermines both the education of Australians for a global knowledge economy, and Australia’s third biggest export industry.
UA is grateful for the opportunity to continue to work with universities, Government and the regulator on academic integrity. Most recently, UA responded to the Higher Education Standards Panel’s (HESP’s) advice on enhancing academic integrity and combatting contract cheating, as well as the Government’s response to this advice. In 2017, UA worked with the sector and the regulator to produce the UA Academic Integrity Best Practice Guidance Principles.
