Plagiarism is an aspect of academic misconduct which threatens fair assessment. It also raises important learning and teaching issues. Consistency is key, as is a dovetailing of governance, regulations, conventions and penalties, with support, guidance and education of both staff and students in good anti-plagiarism practice.

The University’s philosophy takes plagiarism seriously, but also acknowledges that in a complex learning climate an education-led approach is desirable and more sustainable.

The University’s Plagiarism Policy has been revised and approved by Academic Board for implementation in September 2015.

University procedures for dealing with alleged cases of plagiarism are detailed in the Assessment Procedures Manual.
