Proof-reading (taught components)

This policy, intended for the guidance of students and academic staff, relates to the proof-reading of any text to be submitted as part of academic course work, including dissertations.

The policy on proof-reading (PDF) provides definitions of proof-reading in the University of Leeds context, and guidance for students and staff to help avoid contravening the policy. It also explains how inappropriate use of proof-reading could lead to a breach of academic integrity and links to the possible consequences of doing this. The policy relates to course work for any foundation-level qualification, undergraduate, taught postgraduate, or taught component of a research postgraduate degree.
