Avoiding Plagiarism
Any conduct by a student that is dishonest or unfair in connection with any academic
work is considered to be academic misconduct. Plagiarism and cheating are serious
offences that will be investigated and may result in penalties such as reduced or zero
grades, annulled units or even termination from the course. Plagiarism occurs when
work or property of another person is presented as one’s own, without appropriate
acknowledgement or referencing. Submitting work which has been produced by
someone else (e.g. allowing or contracting another person to do the work for which
you claim authorship) is also plagiarism. Submitted work is subjected to a plagiarism
detection process, which may include the use of text matching systems or interviews
with students to determine authorship. Cheating includes (but is not limited to) asking
or paying someone to complete an assessment task for you or any use of
unauthorised materials or assistance during an examination or test. For more
information, including student guidelines for avoiding plagiarism, refer to the
