Students are expected to exercise discretion in their use of research or secondary material. Where such material is used as a major element of, or contribution to a finished project (whether written or visual), there is a requirement to fully acknowledge the source of reference.

In the case of blatant plagiarism and the complete transposition of the whole or part of another writer or artist's work - which is subsequently claimed as an original piece of student work - the submission will be seen as being in breach of the General Academic Regulations, and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
