Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

Disciplinary proceedings may be brought against a student who is suspected of having acted or behaved in a manner which unreasonably interferes with the functioning or activities of ICE, or of those who work or study at ICE, or which otherwise damages ICE or its reputation. The following is a non-exhaustive list of examples:

  1. The use of plagiarised material or any unfair means in work submitted for assessment or in examinations. Plagiarism is defined as submitting as one’s own work, irrespective of intent to deceive, that which derives in part or in its entirety from the work of others without due acknowledgement; or, in the case of self-plagiarism, unless explicitly permitted by regulation, submitting one’s own work that has already been submitted for assessment to satisfy the requirements of any other academic qualification, or submitted for publication without due acknowledgement. Unfair means shall include the possession in an examination of any book, paper or other material relevant to the examination unless such possession is authorised. No member of ICE or the University of Cambridge shall assist a student to make use of such unfair means. For further details please refer to the University of Cambridge’s plagiarism policy.
  2. The disruption or attempted disruption of the teaching or administration of the ICE’s work or aggressive or harassing behaviour, either physical or verbal, towards any student, or person, such as a Tutor, acting on behalf of ICE.
  3. The abuse of alcohol or drugs on any premises where ICE courses are held, including transport and residential components of field trips or excursions.
  4. The theft, damage or defacing of any of the Institute’s property or any property on premises where the Institute’s courses are held.
  5. Other behaviour inconsistent with the University of Cambridge’s General Regulations for Discipline (where applicable). University disciplinary regulations are given in full in the Statutes and Ordinance
