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 the centre for academic success page.

If the use of generative AI has been approved as a source of information for the assessment, you should acknowledge its use in the text of your work using the citation format (AI tool provider, year).
