Academic Integrity Module

The Academic Integrity Module (AIM) is a non-award, mandatory subject that must be completed by all new WSU students. If you are a commencing student, you will have been automatically registered into NOAW0004 Academic Integrity Module, which will be listed in your Subject Sites in vUWS. The online module and quiz should only take you around an hour to complete. You must receive 100% in the quiz, and you must complete the module by the end of your first semester. Please see further information below on completing the AIM.

Introduction to the Academic Integrity Module (AIM)

In collaboration with colleagues from the Educating for Academic Integrity Working Group, the Library developed the Western Sydney University Academic Integrity Module (AIM).

From 2022, the Academic Integrity Module is now a subject that must be completed by all new students. The module can be found on vUWS  with the subject code NOAW004.

The module takes an educative approach to academic integrity and covers the following topics:

  • What is Academic Integrity?
  • What is Academic Misconduct?
  • Why Reference?
  • Resources for Studying with Integrity

The module takes a holistic approach to the topic of academic integrity. Not only does it teach referencing skills, but it also talks about broad strategies for studying with integrity, the moral values related to integrity, and how integrity can influence future career success.

The following interactive features help you stay engaged with the content throughout the module:

  • Videos introduce real life scenarios and working examples.
  • Short quizzes let you check your understanding of content in each section of the module. The final quiz tests your learning from the whole module and helps identify areas for further learning.
  • Easy-to-understand visuals (diagrams, infographics and pictures) to help you understand the core issues related to Academic Integrity.
  • Practical tips, tools and resources.
