Below please find the Department's official notice regarding plagiarism:

Work submitted by you for assessment must be your own.  If you try to pass off the work of others as your own you will be guilty of plagiarism. Plagiarism refers to any work of others, whether published or not, and can include the work of other candidates. Any quotation from the published or unpublished works of other persons, including other candidates, must be clearly identified as such, being placed inside quotation marks and a full reference to their sources must be provided in proper form. A series of short quotations from several different sources, if not clearly identified as such, constitutes plagiarism just as much as does a single unacknowledged long quotation from a single source.
