- It is considered cheating if you use prohibited aids such as notes during an exam. Neither are mobile phones or other types of electronic equipment allowed.
- Using someone else’s ideas or work without stating your source, that is plagiarism, can be seen as cheating.
- Unauthorised cooperation between students in connection with essay writing or take-home exams is also considered cheating.
- Helping someone else can also be considered cheating. You must not allow someone else to copy your responses from a take-home exam or to copy your writing in an essay.
The one who suspects that you have cheated can report it to the Vice-Chancellor, who either takes a decision in the matter directly, or hands it over to the Disciplinary Board. In this Board, the Vice-Chancellor sits together with student and teacher representatives and a judge, a legally qualified representative. The consequences may be that they dismiss the matter, issue a warning or decide that you should be suspended from your studies for a certain period of time. The decision made by a disciplinary board to suspend or warn you can be appealed to an administrative court. If the disciplinary board decides to dismiss the case, this decision cannot be appealed.
