Writing support – get the real deal

UC’s IT team has been made aware of writing services that are being promoted via email to UC students – the email includes UC branding. UC is not in any way associated with the writing services being promoted. 

Students are reminded academic integrity is one of the cornerstones of being a good student, and breaching academic integrity can lead to serious consequences. For more information read Academic Integrity Guidance for Staff and Students>

If you receive any suspicious emails offering writing services, please contact the IT Service Desk in the Central Library (Puaka-James Hight building, Level 2).
