This paper looks at academic fraud in higher education and the means by which it can be addressed for quality assurance. It starts by examining academic fraud today, focusing on the new forms of academic fraud in accreditation and certification processes, including the issue of distance courses. This is followed by an analysis of the new opportunities for fraud offered by the trans-border phenomena of overseas students and courses. In conclusion, it highlights the recent trend towards more transparency, accountability and ethics which has developed to counter this fraud.
