  • Notwithstanding anything in this clause, “misconduct” does not include plagiarism (except to the extent that it may also constitute cheating or acting dishonestly) in an essay, assignment, exercise, thesis or other writing by a student, and nothing in this rule affects the operation of any rule in force in respect of such plagiarism or the authority of any person in relation thereto.

  • Furnishing false information and/or withholding information reasonably demanded by the Academy.
  • Violating terms of any disciplinary sanctions.


Attendance Expectations

Students are expected to attend all the lectures. This is of benefit to the student since a long term of absence will imply lack of commitment on the part of the student which will reflect in the final examinations. Repeated failure of attendance will result in the withholding of course certificates and may be inhibited from sitting for exams. Notice of absence from class should be given at least 2 hours in advance of the start of a lesson.
