Plagiarism
Please read Section 3.4 Plagiarism and Referencing, from the Subject Outline. Below is part of the
statement:
“Students plagiarising run the risk of severe penalties ranging from a reduction through to 0 marks for a first
offence for a single assessment task, to exclusion from KOI in the most serious repeat cases.
Exclusion has serious visa implications.”
“Authorship is also an issue under Plagiarism – KOI expects students to submit their own original work in
both assessment and exams, or the original work of their group in the case of a group project. All students
agree to a statement of authorship when submitting assessments online via Moodle, stating that the work
submitted is their own original work. The following are examples of academic misconduct and can attract
severe penalties:
Handing in work created by someone else (without acknowledgement), whether copied from
another student, written by someone else, or from any published or electronic source, is fraud, and
falls under the general Plagiarism guidelines.
Students who willingly allow another student to copy their work in any assessment may be
considered to assisting in copying/cheating, and similar penalties may be applied. ”
