Consequences of fraud and plagiarism

Fraud and plagiarism are defined as an act of omission on the part of a student. As a result of which a correct assessment of the student’s knowledge, understanding and skills is made fully or partly impossible.

If a candidate does not agree with their penalty they can request for an appeal, if this appeal is not heard they can file a complaint.

Depending on the nature and scope of the fraud or plagiarism, and on the student’s study phase, one or more of the following sanctions may additionally be imposed by the examination board:

1. Exclusion from the exam for life

Depending on the gravity of the offence the examination board can decide to enact on this penalty. A motivation will be provided. Violating fraud and plagiarism point A, D and E will almost certainly result in this penalty being enacted.

2. Complete exclusion from taking part in all tests for a period of 12 months.

Depending on the gravity of the situation, this penalty can be applied. Violation Fraud and plagiarism point A, B and C will result in a minimal exclusion of 12 months. Other sanctions may be added.

3. Group exclusion

If the Board of Examiners determines that there has been widespread or organized fraud and/or plagiarism, on a scale which would affect the examination results in their entirety. The Board of Examiners will decide without delay that the examination is invalid and that all the participants must retake the whole examination at a short notice. This date will be no later than two weeks after the fraud has been established, so that the participants can still benefit from their preparatory work for the examination.

4. Legal consequences.
