Birmingham City University has created guidelines for students on the use of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) in their work.

The Use of AI Tools - Student AI Guidelines document follows the same guidelines that your lecturers use and will be regularly updated. If you are unsure of whether AI is appropriate within your work, please read the guidelines or ask your lecturer.

For advice and guidance around academic writing, please visit theĀ Centre for Academic Success page.
