Depriving an individual of a degree watch

  • View Poll Results: when should a degree be revoked/deprived?
    just limited to achieving degree through cheating/deceit
    cheating/deceit and other factors after achieving your degree can result in a revocation of your degree

    • Thread Starter

    Is the revocation/deprivation of a degree on 'good cause' only limited to achieving it through deceit/cheating or can it be due to other factors such as the reputation you gain after you obtain the degree,criminal convictions , voicing opinions which may be deemed politically incorrect e.g. anything considered to be sexist etc?

    If it is not limited to just achieving the degree through deceit/cheating, would you agree with it being limited to those factors only?

    Deceit/cheating only. That is the only grounds for deeming a person's achievement as dishonest and therefore revoking any certification. Whatever else they do afterwards is irrelevant; they still acquired the degree fairly and it would be up to the employers to decide if their actions warrant their exclusion etc.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
