    Apologies to those of you who received duplicate ‘spam’ email newsletters sent by the Students’ Union on Sunday 🙈

    Our emails are usually segmented by year group and a different one sent to each but, due to an administrative error, the whole student body was sent each individual copy.

    We have now followed up with the relevant staff member to ensure this doesn’t happen again!

    You may have a vague memory of being warned against the perils of plagiarism, or remember sitting through a lecture on referencing at the start of the year. You may not have given the matter much thought since. However it’s important to be aware of the consequences of academic misconduct and where you can go for help if you’re facing an allegation. We understand it can be difficult to get your head around academic writing, particularly if you haven’t done many essays before. However taking some time to understand what’s expected of you can save a lot of stress later on. Read our tips below:

    1) Make sure you attend any tutorials on referencing and, if you’re still not sure what to do, ask. Your course handbook may also have information on which referencing system you’re expected to use.

    2) The School has a statement on editorial help. Familiarise yourself with this if you’re considering using a proofreading service.

    3) Keep your research organised so that you don’t mix up your own words with those of other people. If you’re collating research material then make sure it is clearly labelled so that you don’t accidentally include it in your work without referencing (and write down sources as you go).

    4) Be aware of self-plagiarism (ie. submitting the same piece of work for two different assessments). If you do wish to use earlier work in an assignment then you should check with your department what is allowed and how you should reference it.

    5) If you do receive an allegation of academic misconduct then contact our Advice Service as they can guide you through the process and help you present your case. You can find details here.
