Cheating within the University’s study programmes
Cheating which takes place entirely within the framework of the University’s study programmes does not count as scientific misconduct and is therefore dealt with according to a separate procedure.
Well-founded suspicions that a student has cheated are to be reported promptly to the Vice- Chancellor. Pursuant to the Higher Education Ordinance, this is to be done if a student is suspected of attempted deception using unauthorised aids or in some other way in an examination or when study performance is otherwise to be assessed.
