Plagiarism is discussed in detail in the Study Skills module on day 5 and you are strongly advised to familiarise yourself with what constitutes plagiarism so that you can avoid it. Plagiarism is academic misconduct, the penalties for which extend to removal from the programme. 


A number of factors can contribute to work being penalised/marked down or awarded 0%. These include:


        -     Late submissions without evidence 

        -     Plagiarism detected 

        -     Assignments not adhering to crucial criteria 

        -     Assignments missing segments
