All about Turnitin

Turnitin is an online service to which the University subscribes to allow students to submit assignments electronically. It enables tutors to mark assignments online and make comments on and give feedback relating to your paper. Its main purpose is to provide text-matching of submitted assignments against an extensive library of visible internet pages, journals, periodicals and student essays previously submitted.

We suggest you contact your lecturer or School, Faculty or Programme office in the first instance with questions. Turnitin assessments in modules are set up by the module convenor or relevant administrative office.

When you submit an assignment you will receive a digital receipt - an automated response to successful submissions which cannot be manually reproduced. The receipt is emailed to your university email inbox from TurnitinUK. Please check your email inbox, including your junk or deleted folders (it is sometimes filtered as spam) for the digital receipt mail.

Note that you won't always see your Similarity score or your Originality report as it is up to each module convenor to choose the settings. They may not choose to allow students viewing the originality report, so there will be no percentage shown to students in the Similarity column.
