The work must be entirely your own. Any material from other authors must be correctly referenced in accordance with University regulations. Referencing entire paragraphs or paraphrasing them (i.e. rewriting them in your own words) is not acceptable. Use of references should support your argument, not be your argument. Any work found to be in breach of this will be dealt with officially.
WARNING : If your assignment consists mainly of a collection of referenced material or excessive collaboration with others, you will get 0% for the assignment which is likely to result in you having to do extra work over the summer and could result in you being capped for the module. If material is not correctly referenced your assignment will be considered as plagiarized and dealt with officially.
