Student Declaration and Acknowledgement
Plagiarism is the act of representing as one’s own original work the creative works of another, without appropriate acknowledgement of the author or source.
Collusion is the presentation by a student of an assignment as his or her own work, which is in fact the result in whole or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more students in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and as such both parties are subject to disciplinary action.
Plagiarism and collusion constitute cheating. Students who engages in plagiarism and collusion will receive a FAIL or Not Yet Competent (NYC) outcome.
