If you receive an allegation of academic misconduct, our team specializes in supporting students throughout all elements of the investigation process.
The University's full procedures relating to academic misconduct investigations can be found here.
Most cases of academic misconduct are completely unintentional and could easily be prevented by building confidence with academic and study skills.
We encourage you to explore the wide range of study skills support which is available to all students at UH - click the drop-downs below to find out more.
The following academic skills support services are available at UH:
Herts Academic Skills (HAS): If you feel that you would benefit from an opportunity to talk to someone one-to-one about academic skills, you can visit the LRC drop-in services run by Herts Academic Skills in the Learning Resource Centres on College Lane and De Havilland campuses. You can find details of the drop-in schedule, as well as instructions on how to request an online consultation, here.
Many students use the service every year for assistance with academic writing skills, and you are very welcome to come and speak to a member of the team of experts when you start working on your first assignments. You can also use drop-ins to talk about more general study skills, including time management, reading for your modules, critical thinking, giving presentations, and participating in seminars. For all of these elements of university studies, you can find further resources on the Herts Academic Skills homepage on Canvas.
There is also a short online module you can complete as an introduction to developing the skills you will need for success on your degree programme. It’s called GETTING STARTED WITH HERTS ACADEMIC SKILLS, and it’s an unassessed module that you can work through in your own time; you can enrol yourself by following this link: https://herts.instructure.com/enroll/JHF33R
English Language Development: If you would like to develop your English language skills, there are some videos about English language development on the Herts Academic Skills Canvas Site and from the week commending the 9th of October, the team will start running weekly conversation clubs and English classes. More information will be communicated soon, but you are welcome to email the team via HAS@herts.ac.uk to express an interest in developing your English language skills.
