Plagiarism is copying another’s work or ideas. This includes sections (sentences, tables, diagram) of books or
articles, another student’s work or text, diagram, data from the internet without proper referencing etc. Adding your
name to group work in which you have not participated or letting a student who has not participated add his/her
name to work is also considered as an offence and will lead to disciplinary action for all involved.
Plagiarism in any assessed work (continuous assessment, examinations and projects) is considered as a serious
offence and will lead to disciplinary action.
Other forms of academic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary sanctions. Academic dishonesty, other than
plagiarism may take any number of forms such as submission of the work more than once whether the earlier
submission was at another institution, unless prior approval has been obtained, cheating on an examination, aiding
another student’s dishonesty, unauthorized or inappropriate use of computers, calculators and other forms of
technology in course work, assignments or examinations.
