Generative AI guidelines

The Generative AI guidelines have been created to help you navigate the use of these tools responsibly and effectively. We have also developed Open Access Tutorials on the ULearning Platform aimed at sharpening your skills in responsibly leveraging these tools within your education. The full guidelines can be found below. Before using any GenAI tool in your courses and research, please consult with your teacher/supervisor.

What you can do:

  • Use GenAI as a learning aid for understanding material and generating ideas.
  • Improve writing clarity and grammar.
  • Assist in designing images and coding with teacher's discretion.

What you must do:

  • Critically evaluate the use of GenAI, including its ethical implications and biases.
  • Acknowledge and reference any GenAI-generated content in your assignments.

What you cannot do:

  • Complete assignments entirely with GenAI.
  • Engage in academic dishonesty or input sensitive information into unsecure systems.

Your adherence to these guidelines ensures the integrity and excellence of our academic community. If you have any further questions after consulting the guidelines please feel free to contact

While we are still exploring its potential, it is important to recognise that these tools, though powerful, can also be misused. Your teachers will provide specific guidelines for their use in assignments and courses. Please be transparent, critically assess results, and consider the ethical implications. By considering these aspects, you not only engage with AI responsibly but also gain a deeper understanding of ethical data utilisation.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask your teachers or contact the GSLS Generative Education Initiative (

Additional guidelines for Generative AI in research projects

These guidelines serve as a complement to the guidelines mentioned abovespecifically tailored to the context of GSLS research projects.
