No exam fraud at Hague University
After receiving a tip, the company investigation bureau investigated fraud at De Haagse Hogeschool, but found nothing. The school announced that the investigation began at the start of February. The tip came from Omroep West, the regional broadcasting service had received information from students of the university. According to the broadcasting service, a group of ICT students had access to the computer system, and for four years were able to get their hands on test papers and answers. "It has not appeared that the fraud, such as that which the press reports had promised, has taken place", the bureau states. De Haagse Hoogeschool has hereby closed the case. In 2012, a student from the university was expelled because he had a memory stick in his possession with five exams on it. His fellow students from the Social Work and Services study who had already written the exam, had to retake it.
