Plagiarism is the most common type of academic offence, and falls under the University's definition of Academic Misconduct. Plagiarism is when someone presents another person’s work without adequately identifying it and citing its source. This can include deliberate cheating, such as buying essays online or getting someone else to write your assignment, but may also be unintentional, such as when copying text without fully acknowledging the original creator.
