Pre hearing information


The tribunal will enquire into the allegation that, in March 2018, Dr Chowdhury submitted an assignment to the University of Leeds purporting to be his own work. It is alleged that Dr Chowdhury knew that the assignment contained work which had been plagiarised, and that he knew he should not submit plagiarised work. It is alleged that his actions, in so doing, were dishonest.

The tribunal will further enquire into the allegation that, in July 2018, Dr Chowdhury submitted a form for his Annual Review of Competence Progression meeting in which he failed to declare that he had been found guilty of plagiarism by the university. It is alleged that his actions, in so doing, were again dishonest.



This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.


All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
