21. Plagiarism and collusion

Candidates must ensure that coursework submitted for assessment in fulfilment of course requirements is genuinely their own and is not plagiarised (borrowed, without specific acknowledgement, or stolen from other published or unpublished work).

Quotations should be clearly identified and attributed, preferably by the use of one of the standard conventions for referencing. Assessed work should not be produced jointly unless the written instructions specify this. Such co-operation is cheating and any commonality of text is plagiarism.
