As a Chisholm student, you must understand and adhere to specific policies and procedures during your time with us.

State and national laws, including Australian consumer laws, determine these policies to ensure student and employee wellbeing, and academic integrity. They also describe your rights and Chisholm’s responsibility to you.

You’ll find all the policies that affect you in one place – in our Quality Management System (QMS).

More on the Student Code of Conduct

It’s your responsibility to read the Student Code of Conduct and familiarise yourself with what is expected of you as a member of the Chisholm community. This will ensure that what you do at Chisholm meets our standards of behaviour.


Plagiarism is the use of someone else’s work or ideas in your assignment without crediting the source – that is, where you found it and who wrote it.

If you’re not sure what this means or how to provide credit in your assessment, speak to your teacher or library staff at your Chisholm campus.

You can also find out more about plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct in Academic Misconduct (QMS129).

In a nutshell, you can’t try to get a better mark by:

  • Copying large sections of someone else’s text into your work, without crediting the original author
  • Buying an essay or other piece of work from someone else and then submitting it for assessment as your own work
  • Using a phone, other mobile or fixed device or other unauthorised sources to improperly access information, support or text during an examination or other regulated assessment setting
  • Allowing others to copy your own work for their assessments.

If you do any of these things, it is regarded as cheating. Chisholm has policies in place to address the seriousness of inappropriate behaviour and implement consequences.
