Plagiarism and fraud
The UvA has regulations in place governing fraud and plagiarism. Students who have committed serious fraud may have their enrolment terminated and be no longer allowed to finish their study programme. It is therefore important to know which academic rules you must follow.
In the UvA’s ‘Regulations Governing Fraud and Plagiarism for UvA Students’, you can find out what the UvA defines as fraud and plagiarism and which rules you must follow when taking an exam or writing an essay or paper.
