IMPORTANT STATEMENTSCheating and PlagiarismBoth cheating and plagiarism are totally unacceptable and the University maintains a strict policy against them. It is YOUR responsibility to be aware of this policy and to act accordingly. Please refer to the Academic Registry Guidance at https://icity.bcu.ac.uk/Academic-Registry/Information-for-Students/Assessment/Avoiding-Allegations-of-CheatingThe basic principles are:Don’t pass off anyone else’s work as your own, including work from “essay banks”. This is plagiarism and is viewed extremely seriously by the University.Don’t submit a piece of work in whole or in part that has already been submitted for assessment elsewhere. This is called duplication and, like plagiarism, is viewed extremely seriously by the University.Always acknowledge all of the sources that you have used in your coursework assignment or project.If you are using the exact words of another person, always put them in quotation marks.Check that you know whether the coursework is to be produced individually or whether you can work with others.If you are doing group work, be sure about what you are supposed to do on your own.Never make up or falsify data to prove your point.Never allow others to copy your work.Never lend disks, memory sticks or copies of your coursework to any other student in the University; this may lead you being accused of collusion.By submitting coursework, either physically or electronically, you are confirming that it is your own work (or, in the case of a group submission, that it is the result of joint work undertaken by members of the group that you represent) and that you have read and understand the University’s guidance on plagiarism and cheating.Students should be aware that, at the discretion of the module co-ordinator, coursework may be submitted to an electronic detection system in order to help ascertain if any plagiarised material is present.Electronic Submission of WorkStudents should also be aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that work submitted inelectronic format can be opened on a faculty computer and to check that any electronic submissions have been successfully uploaded. If it cannot be opened it will not be marked.Any required file formats will be specified in the assignment brief and failure to comply withthese submission requirements will result in work not being marked. Students must retain a copy of all electronic work they have submitted and resubmit if requested.
