Academic Integrity Starts With You

As we are now drawing closer to the assessment period, our contacts on the Academic Integrity Advisory group of the QAA are reporting increased incidences of extortion and black mail by Essay Mills.

As we are now drawing closer to the assessment period, our contacts on the Academic Integrity Advisory group of the QAA are reporting increased incidences of extortion and blackmail by Essay Mills. These organisations are constantly targeting vulnerable students to sell essays or research work, which constitutes academic fraud. 

If you are in this situation or know anyone that has been impacted by this, please reach out to the Students' Union's Advice and Support centre: advice@swansea-union.co.uk

If you are feeling stressed and cannot meet your deadlines, please turn to your colleges for extra support, in submitting an application for extensions. Engaging in academic fraud would negatively impact the quality of your degree. Do not forget, academic integrity starts with you!

If you need any support or guidance with academic integrity, our Advice and Support Centre has a team of trained Advisors who can provide you with impartial and confidential advice and representation, independent of the University.

They can support you through a number of legal issues and personal matters, across money, welfare, academic, and housing.

Although we are currently unable to offer on-campus appointments/drop-ins due to compulsory social distancing measures in line with Covid-19 safety measures, we are still able to offer advice via email, telephone, and zoom. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Email: advice@swansea-union.co.uk

Phone: 01792 295 821

You can also send us a request for us to contact you via your preferred method using our Contact form.

Zoom drop-ins: 9.30-12pm every Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays here, where you will enter into a digital waiting room until one of our advisors is free to speak with you.

The University also has a useful webpage on Academic Integrity, which can be accessed here.

 

Gan ein bod bellach yn agosáu at y cyfnod asesu, mae ein cysylltiadau ar grwp Cynghori Uniondeb Academaidd yr ASA yn nodi mwy o achosion o gribddeiliaeth a blacmel gan felinau traethawd. Mae'r sefydliadau hyn yn targedu myfyrwyr sy'n agored i niwed yn gyson i werthu traethodau neu waith ymchwil, sy'n gyfystyr â thwyll academaidd.

Os wyt ti yn y sefyllfa hon, neu'n adnabod unrhyw un y mae hyn wedi effeithio arno, cysyllta â Chanolfan Cyngor a Chefnogaeth Undeb y Myfyrwyr: advice@swansea-union.co.uk

Os wyt ti'n teimlo dan straen ac yn methu â chyrraedd dy ddyddiadau cau, cysyllta â dy goleg am gymorth ychwanegol wrth gyflwyno cais am estyniadau. Byddai cymryd rhan mewn twyll academaidd yn cael effaith negyddol ar ansawdd dy radd. Paid ag anghofio, mae uniondeb academaidd yn dechrau gyda ti!

Os oes angen unrhyw gymorth neu gyngor gydag uniondeb academaidd, mae gan ein Canolfan Cyngor a Chymorth dîm o gynghorwyr hyfforddedig a all ddarparu cyngor a chynrychiolaeth ddiduedd a chyfrinachol, yn annibynnol o'r Brifysgol.

Maen nhw'n gallu cefnogi myfyrwyr drwy nifer o broblemau cyfreithiol a phersonol gan gynnwys materion arian, lles, academaidd a thai.

Er nad ydyn ni'n cynnig apwyntiadau/sesiynau corfforol oherwydd mesurau cadw pellter cymdeithasol Covid-19, rydyn ni'n cynnig cyngor drwy e-bost, dros y ffôn neu ar Zoom. Paid ag oedi cyn cysylltu â ni.
