Plagiarism is interpreted by the University as the act of presenting the work of others as one’s own work, without acknowledgement.

Plagiarism is considered as academically fraudulent, and an offence against University discipline. The University considers plagiarism to be a major offence, and subject to the disciplinary procedures of the University.

A general set of guidelines for students on avoiding plagiarism is available on Library website .

The Calendar entry outlines the process through which a suspected case of plagiarism should be dealt with. Where the summary procedure is invoked a written minute of the Plagiarism Summary Procedure must be completed.
