Collusion

The term 'collusion' is used for inappropriate collaboration in examination assignments. Unless specifically stated by the teacher and department, students may not collaborate on examination tasks, such as take-home exams or essay assignments. If in any doubt, students should always ask their teacher what is applicable in order to avoid the risk of collusion.

Lund University takes collusion seriously. Note that not only handing in someone else's work as one's own is regarded as cheating, but also allowing other students to copy one's assignments.

Students at Lund University need to acquaint themselves with information issued by their department concerning what is and what is not appropriate in examination and essay assignments. Note that different departments may have different regulations and that different rules may apply to different courses within one department.
