This session will share findings from a globally-scoped research project sponsored by the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Canada. The project investigated three distinct areas: student-based fraud and deception; institutional-level activities affecting the provision of a quality education; and policy responses to fraud and deception.
Key guiding research questions included: What are the typical policy and enforcement gaps exploited by fraudsters? Has fraud increased, and if so, can fraud activities be quantified? What is the impact of such issues on an educational brand or an institution? What are the learning opportunities for institutions and policy-makers to curtail fraud?
