Academic Integrity and Misconduct - Policy and Procedures

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is a quality that demonstrates values such as honesty, fairness and respect for others and their work. Academic integrity is evident by the behaviours we exhibit.

In order to demonstrate academic integrity, you must be able to demonstrate for example originality (independent thinking) and criticality (critical thinking), which you will be supported to develop whilst you complete your studies.

You will demonstrate academic integrity by producing your own work, clearly acknowledging any material that has been included from other sources or through collaboration.

Students must also present their own findings, conclusions or data based on appropriate and ethical practice.

Academic Misconduct

Academic Misconduct is a breach of the values of academic integrity and can occur when a student cheats in an assessment, or attempts to deliberately mislead an examiner that the work presented is their own when it is not. It includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism, self-plagiarism, commissioning or buying work from a third party or copying the work of others, breach of examination rules, collusion etc.

Student Complaints and Grievance Procedures

The University is committed to providing a high-quality experience for each student and encourages students to inform it where there is any cause for concern. The University’s Student Complaints and Grievance Procedures therefore exist to enable students to make complaints about such matters.

Guidelines for Supporting Students of Determination (Special Needs)

Middlesex University Dubai believes that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue a university degree, and we pride ourselves on our inclusivity policies to ensure that no student is discriminated against based on their race, colour, national, or ethnic origin, or any physical, mental, cognitive, or communicative impairment that they may have.

 

The University supports an anticipatory approach that requires pro-active consideration of access to learning, teaching, services, and facilities to ensure adjustments are made in advance of students of determination attempting to study or use the services and facilities. The University is committed to addressing barriers to inclusion (structural, cultural, organisational and attitudinal) and takes as its starting point the premise that accessible and appropriate provision is not ‘additional’ but a core element of the overall service, which the University makes available. All academic disciplines and professional services will use inclusive practices and reasonable adjustments to change procedures or environments to remove any disabling effects or barriers to participation.

Consent Policy for U-18 & IFP Students      

Middlesex University Dubai is committed to equal opportunities in its admissions. All applications are considered on their individual merits. Occasionally the University admits students who are under the age of 18 years. Such students are usually enrolled in our International Foundation Programme (IFP) and sometimes also in the first year of our undergraduate programmes. The University treats all its students as independent, mature individuals.

However, the University acknowledges that anyone under the age of 18 years is legally a minor (under UK Law) and recognises that students under the age of 18 years may therefore have different needs in relation to their support and wellbeing. Middlesex University Dubai is committed towards promoting the well-being of all students under the age of 18 years. While most students transition into University life smoothly, some may face challenges. Staff in support services, accommodation and academic departments work together to ensure that the well-being of students under the age of 18 years is maintained and monitored accordingly.

This policy is applicable to all students who are under 18 years of age and are applying for admission to any taught programmes at Middlesex University Dubai. For more details, please visit https://www.mdx.ac.ae/about-us/university-regulations
