All new students commencing from Trimester 1 2013 will be required to complete a University Academic Integrity Module (AIM) before the end of their first enrolment period (Trimester, Semester or Block).

The University AIM will take the form of an online test in Blackboard and you must achieve 100% to pass. You may repeat the module any number of times. Existing students may complete the module but it is not a requirement.

The University AIM will become available with a new Blackboard AIM tab in January 2013. The first group of new students affected will be Trimester 1 2013.

Successful completion will be automatically stored against your student record in myHub. A hold will be placed on your record in myHub if the University AIM is not completed within the designated period. This will prevent you from re-enrolling, viewing your exam results or transcript, or graduating, until you successfully complete the module.

To access the university Academic Integrity Module, log in to myUoN, click the UoNline link and then select the Academic Integrity Module tab. Click on the ‘UNIVERSITY ACADEMIC INTEGRITY MODULE’ link and follow the prompts.

There are 5 groups of questions - one group on each of the topics:

  • Group Work, Collusion and Sharing
  • Student Responsibilities
  • Referencing and Plagiarism
  • Academic Integrity Policy
  • Social Media and Integrity
