Student Code of Conduct

Student Code of Conduct for the Completion of Online Terminal Assessments

An Online Terminal Assessment is a formal examination given by AIT as part of the Examinations and Assessment process for programmes leading to an award. It is important that online examinations and assessments are valid, fair and consistent, just like face to face examinations. The validity of a student’s work and how AIT ensures that the work is authentic is extremely important. Students should remember that Breaches of Assessment Regulations as outlined in Standards, Assessment and Awards, are taken very seriously by the Institute and may result in a referral to a Committee of Enquiry.

The aim of this AIT Student Code of Conduct for Completion of Online Alternative Terminal Assessments is to inform students of the responsibilities and behaviour required when completing an Online Terminal Assessment.  This Code of Conduct is viewed by AIT as the personal responsibility of every student in AIT.

Below are the details included in the AIT Student Code of Conduct. You must adhere to this code of conduct when completing your assessments.

What happens if you are in breach of these rules?

Any student who is in breach of any of the notices contained in the Code of Conduct may be subject to a Committee of Enquiry under the Institute's Academic Regulations and/or disciplinary measures under the AIT Code of Conduct and Discipline
