Plagiarism is an aspect of academic misconduct which threatens fair assessment. It also raises important learning and teaching issues. Support, guidance and education of both staff and students in good anti-plagiarism practice is key.
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 was approved by Academic Board for implementation in September 2015.
University procedures for dealing with alleged cases of plagiarism are detailed in the Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct Procedures.
The Plagiarism Policy is under review in 2020.
