As an online higher education provider in the financial services, commerce, and management space, it is an institutional imperative that our programmes and accreditations speak to our high standards of honesty, fairness, and accountability.
Educational institutions are being tested by the capabilities of new technologies that offer opportunities for innovation and transformation in education, as well as risks to academic integrity. As online assessments have become more common in higher education, so have plagiarism, collusion, impersonation, and academic dishonesty.
Milpark Education strictly complies with the criteria for registration and accreditation stipulated by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), the Council on Higher Education (CHE), and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), as well as certain professional bodies, to ensure that our programmes are duly recognised by industry – to the benefit of our students, alumni, clients, and partners.
We believe that integrity in learning is essential, and we will uphold this belief with unwavering dedication. As such, we conduct all assessments according to a rigorous protocol that ensures that each of our students has a fair opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities. We also continuously review and refine the protocol to deter, detect and address assessment fraud.
In turn, students have a responsibility to understand the significance of making ethical decisions throughout their learning journey. This extends beyond their studies, as the professions they aspire to shape our society, and the future of finance.
