Translated academic integrity resources for students
TEQSA has launched a suite of resources in languages other than English to support students to better understand how to avoid illegal academic cheating services.
Our existing Understanding Academic Integrity resources have been translated into Mandarin (Simplified Chinese), Hindi, Portuguese and Malay - four of the most common languages other than English spoken by students.
This will further assist higher education students to develop an understanding of academic integrity; the risks commercial academic cheating services pose to students; the operation of Australia’s anti-cheating laws and how to identify, avoid and report illegal cheating services.
TEQSA Chief Executive Officer Alistair Maclean said TEQSA’s student-focused resources had proved popular with students, with them being accessed more than 34,500 times since April 2021.
“These student-focused resources are designed to complement the work taking place in Australian higher education institutions to strengthen students' understanding of academic integrity,” Mr Maclean said.
“By producing translated resources we hope to support more students to develop a stronger understanding of Australia’s anti-cheating laws and how they can reduce the risks posed by illegal cheating services.”
