Plagiarism Policies

What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is defined as “Presenting someone else’s work, in whole or in part, as your own. Work means any intellectual output, and typically includes text, data, images, sound or performance.”

Why does effective action against plagiarism matter? 

  • The institute and employers can be sure that you earned your course fairly and that it is of high quality.
  • You can be proud of your independent, individual work and can know that your achievements are not being undermined by the misdeeds of others.
  • All students develop as independent, critical thinkers, willing and able to contribute to academic debates and developments in their chosen subject areas.

Honesty requires that any ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use must be fully acknowledged. Offering the work from someone else as one’s own is plagiarism. The offering of materials assembled or collected by others in the form of projects or collections without acknowledgment also is considered plagiarism.

Our Assessing system has adopted the elective use of the Turnitin anti-plagiarism program (https://turnitin.com/)  for all course works. Turntin is being used increasingly by many academic institutes, partially in response to increasing numbers of suspected academic ethics violations related to student use of Internet and web-based resources and “shared” electronic files. It is not our goal to “catch” students who cheat, but rather to encourage honest work by making it essential for students to carefully consider the legitimacy and authenticity of the work they submit.

Therefore, all our students need to make sure their works is independent, individual work that is free from plagiarism. Your assessor has full rights to get decision on your work base on plagiarism report generated through Turnitin Anti-Plagiarism programme (turnitin.com).
