The guidelines contained in Producing Assessed Coursework include information on the two systems of referencing used within the School of English, as well as advice on preparing and presenting your writing.
Your attention is particularly directed to the section on Plagiarism. The University takes the academic offence of plagiarism extremely seriously. Your signed undertaking states that you will abide by the University's and School’s regulations in this area, and this guide gives more information on how to write and make use of other people’s work without committing plagiarism.
More information and advice on plagiarism is available in the Academic Integrity and Plagiarism powerpoint presentation. This presentation is delivered to new students arriving in the School of English at the start of each academic year.
