Plagiarism for the purpose of this compliance statement (which applies to students enrolled in course
work degrees) means presenting another person’s work as one’s own work by presenting, copying or
reproducing it without acknowledgement of the source. The University’s policy regarding academic
plagiarism can be found online at
Legitimate co-operation can be defined as any constructive educational and intellectual practice that
aims to facilitate optimal learning outcomes through interaction between students. Typical examples of
these practices may include
 the researching and writing of joint projects/written works/tutorial papers;
 discussion of general themes and concepts;
 interpretation of assessment criteria;
 informal study/discussion groups;
 strengthening and development of academic writing skills through peer assistance;
Legitimate co-operation is based on the principle that producing the work remains the independent
responsibility of the student (or group of students where a joint project is undertaken), while recognising
the educational value of interaction between students.
