Spring semester topics
Academic honestyAcademic honesty is becoming a major issue in these days in the western world. In Hungary cheating during exams had been much more applied, although not tolerated by the institutions, especially in recent years. We often forget that academic dishonesty is something that can come back to hunt you and hurt you years later (e.g. plagiarism issues of public figures).
Therefore it is best to avoid it all together in spite of its deceiving appearance offering short term benefits and a false sense of task completion.
