Copying the work of others, or using other people’s ideas as your own without acknowledging the source is called plagiarism. Lecturers will not accept such work and you may be penalised by losing marks or failing an assessment.
All individual assignments and tests must be entirely your own work. Discussion and assistance between students who are working in groups is ok, but all work handed in must be your own work and written in your own words, except for assignments based on group achievement. To reinforce this, you are required to sign the declaration on the cover sheet of each assignment. Further information is in the Guidelines for Written Assignments handbook and the Faculty of Business and Information Technology Student Handbook.
