How well do you know the student Code of Conduct?
When you enrol at uni, you agree to follow the student Code of Conduct, which outlines your responsibilities as a student on matters of academic integrity. It’s an important part of being a student, but, like many things we sign up to, it isn’t always easy to take the time to look at the details and reflect on how it affects your day-to-day student life. We want to start a dialogue with you about understanding academic honesty so that we can ensure fairness and mutual accountability for all students when it comes time for assessments and exams. Please take our quick, online survey and let us know your thoughts.

Designing for disabilities
Last week students from the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning put their studies into practice in the Enabled by Design-athon. Their design-skills helped them to develop creative and initiative ideas to make life easier for people living with a disability.
