Divisional Policy on Plagiarism

1. Information for Students

2. Related Matters

3. Detecting Plagiarism

Electronically submitted work should, where possible, be scrutinised promptly with plagiarism detection software. The Computing Support team are asked to look into and provide information and/or software which facilitates this process. Responsibility for actual checking and immediate resulting action lies with the Course Organiser (or delegate) for first and second year courses and the module lecturer in other years.

Material submitted by hand should continue to be scrutinised by current arrangements.

4. Responding to Plagiarism

The University's new guidelines and amended Degree Examination Regulations provide clear instructions on the procedure for dealing with suspected plagiarism. Note in addition that advice should be sought from the Associate Dean (General) in the Faculty Office on any suspected case.
