University-wide statement on plagiarism

With effect from 1 October 2016

The General Board has approved an amendment to the University-wide statement on plagiarism (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 194), to insert the following new paragraph at the end of the statement concerning the use of text-matching software and consent to its use:

The University makes use of text-matching software for the purpose of plagiarism education and detection, and reserves the right to submit a candidate’s work to such a service. For this purpose, candidates consent to the submission of their papers to the service and for the submitted papers to form part of the service’s comparative source work database. To facilitate use of the service, students (and participating Examiners and Assessors) may be required to agree to the service provider’s end-user agreement and provide a limited amount of personal data upon registration to the service, for instance, their name, email address, and course details.
