The University of Worcester takes all allegation of plagiarism very seriously and has procedures in place when dealing with students. Click here to view the Cheating Procedure.
The University of Worcester uses the terms 'learner incompetence' and 'cheating' to cover all the possible methods of plagiarism both intentional and unitentional.
Examples of plagiarism include:
As a student, you are expected to familiarise yourself with the different types of plagiarism and how to avoid it.
Student Services run a series of workshop sessions each yer to help develop your study skills.
1-2-1 Sessions with a subject specialist librarian are run on demand, just email to book a session.
It is wrong to think that you can commit plagiarism and it will go undetected. The University uses sophisticated software called Turnitin to detect plagiarism as well as the judgement of academics.
The risks of committing plagiarism are serious and can lead to the termination of your studies
