Plagiarising is intentionally attempting to present someone else’s work as if it was your own. It is expected that you will need to use ideas and arguments from other writers. As long as you acknowledge the source of all material in your assessment and, with the exception of direct quotes, use your own words, you are not plagiarising.

Plagiarism has serious consequences. If it is discovered that you have plagiarised another person’s work in an assessment, you will fail the assessment, or even the unit of study. The decision is subject to review by the Dean.

If you are having trouble with referencing, English language expression, or if you generally find it difficult to complete your work in a timely and academically honest manner you should see your teacher or supervisor as early as possible. We are here to assist and support you
