Academic Integrity Management System (AIMS)
The University's central system for incidents relating to student academic integrity.
AIMS is the Academic Integrity Management System. It is the University system used to manage allegations of student academic misconduct or poor academic practice, and replaces the previous Register of Academic Misconduct (RAM).
Access to the system is managed in the Academic Quality Office. Authorised users can access the Academic Integrity Management System.
How are incidents submitted?
- Following a breach of academic integrity, the Course Director and/or Academic Integrity Adviser are encouraged to inform students of the allegation via email, and then interview them about suspected PAP or misconduct. An email template and guidance on how to conduct interviews are below.
- Following this, they must report the breach using the Academic Integrity Breach Reporting Form. This feeds the breach into the Academic Integrity Management System (AIMS), where all breaches of academic integrity are managed centrally by the Academic Quality Office.
Incidents in exams are managed centrally by the Assessment Services Office, while incidents in coursework are co-ordinated by the Academic Quality Office, with the input of faculty staff. All instances of academic misconduct are recorded in line with our Student Academic Conduct Statute (2021).
See the flow chart below for a more detailed outline of the process.
