Notice on Plagiarism, Fabrication, Purchasing Essays, and other dishonest practice – read this very carefully and take note
Plagiarism and other forms of dishonest academic practice are more trouble than they are worth. They are unscholarly, unethical, unfair, and illegal. It will waste your tutor’s and convenor’s time and ultimately your own. You will achieve far better outcomes by avoiding it. Do not do it. There are no excuses whatsoever. Plagiarism will result in a zero (0) for the assignment it occurred in. If you plagiarise do not claim after the fact that you did not understand what it was. More info at:
We are aware that a large majority of students conduct their studies and submit their assessment items in accordance with academic requirements and conventions. The message above is not directed at these much appreciated hard-working students. It is directed at a significant minority of people who do not conduct their studies in accordance with academic requirements and who cheat against their fellow students. A minority of this kind recurs every semester in almost every unit. This notice is an attempt to pre-empt any form of dishonest academic practice and save everyone a lot of trouble.
