in the work submitted for assessment. Assisting to cheat involves any means by which a student helps another to gain an unfair advantage. Collaboration involves working with another person or persons, and in order to prevent any unfair advantage is only allowed where the relevant lecturer has specifically permitted it. Plagiarism is a form of cheating, and involves the presentation of some or all of another student’s work, or material from any other source such as the Internet, published books, or periodicals, without due acknowledgment given in the text. If students present as their own ·work that is the work of another person, is copied from another source, has been presented by a previous student, has been presented by a student at another institution, or has been presented for assessment at another time in a course or at any time in another course, this may be interpreted as cheating.
Where work submitted for assessment by two or more persons is the same or substantially the same, the work so submitted is prima facie evidence of cheating by those persons. It may also be that one student has assisted another to cheat, which is also an offence. Where there are reasonable grounds for believing that cheating or assisting to cheat has occurred, the only action that may be taken is for the staff member to disallow the work and not give it an assessment, or to refer the matter to the Group Manager, Academic and HR Services. The matter will then be referred to the Faculty Discipline Committee. This Committee has the power to suspend or exclude a student.
