What are the Examining Boards’ rules?

Unless you have explicit permission from an examiner as written in the course guide, using AI to generate the content of your assignment is considered fraud (Article 16, paragraph 3 of the 2023-2024 Rules & Regulations). Examiners can request an additional oral verification of your assignment in case of doubt. Suspicions of AI fraud will be investigated by the Examining Boards in a similar way as they investigate plagiarism. Besides prohibiting this specific usage of AI tools, the Examining Boards stress a few important points.

  • First, you may use AI only to support essential academic skills like critical reflection, literature research, and scientific writing, not to replace those skills.
  • You are always held accountable for the correctness, completeness, and coherence of your (written) assignments.
  • When using AI in an assignment, you should acknowledge this usage and reflect on how it impacts your assignment. See “How do I use (generative) AI responsibly?” for more information on how to cite AI tools in your academic texts.
