Academic Misconduct and Examinations – Facebook Ads targeting UNE Students; Here’s what you need to know
We have become aware of Facebook ads targeting UNE students offering help to cheat in online exams. Please keep in mind that we are aware of their methods, and have forwarded information to relevant exam supervisors to ensure they are aware of and recognise these services.
For your own protection, please be aware that there are many known cases where essay mills continue to contact students long after the original transaction, threatening to reveal their cheating to the university. We don’t want this to happen to you.
Please remember, regardless of whether you are intending to sit your examinations online or at a face-to-face centre, we’re here to provide support if you are struggling with study and we encourage you to reach out to us if you need.
Whether you’re looking for assistance regarding academic skills, exam preparation, assignment extensions, personal support or needing to defer your exam, we are here to help!
You can catch us on 02 6773 2000 or 1800 560 677, through live chat, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or through social media on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We’ve also extended our hours so we’re here for you from 7am-10pm, seven days a week.
It’s important to us that all students understand what constitutes Academic Misconduct and that UNE does not tolerate cheating.
You can find the Student Coursework Academic Misconduct Procedures here.
If you have any questions about the policy or what might count as cheating or misconduct, please don’t hesitate to have a chat with a staff member. We’re happy to clarify things for you and would much rather that you seek advice than remain worried or confused!
