Hello all students!

Indeed you have already read DSV’s code of honour, which includes rules for examinations? Below are some examples that violate the code of honour and regulations:

  • copy solution or accounting from someone else or let someone else copy their solutions,
  • illicit cooperation,
  • plagiarism,
  • rework and submit an already assessed assignment again for assessment without the teacher’s consent,
  • give or receive unauthorized help with homework or
  • present someone else’s work as their own.

Teachers are obliged to report well-founded suspicions of cheating to the Principal and the Disciplinary Committee! This might lead to you as a student being suspended from your studies for up to six months. A suspension is registered as a temporary interruption in the studies and can affect, among other things, study grants but also the right to student housing. A decision to suspend usually applies immediately.

Here you can read DSV’s code of honour.

Here you can read about how cases are handled at Stockholm university.

If you are suspected of cheating, you can contact the student safety representative at studskyddsombud@disk.su.se.

If your case has already gone to the disciplinary committee, you can contact SUS’s representative via the form on this page: https://www.en.sus.su.se/sus-ombud-your-support-in-study-related-issues
