[Extract] The research discussed in this chapter is part of a PhD study that explored the experiences of tertiary education and community experiences for twenty persons who lived in one of fourteen rural areas in Australia. A selection of experiences from four contributors is presented here. The focus in this chapter is variant and resemblant experiences of threats to educational integrity; related by persons under the pseudonyms of Margaret, Jane, Heidi and Julie who all engaged with at least one tertiary education course while resident in their respective rural areas. Broadly, their education experiences relate to navigating learning and assessment to attain their credentials through both classroom and online delivery. This presentation of an account of what experiences mean for a small number of persons who reside in rural areas expands what is known in research about threats to integrity in the provision of tertiary education.
