 COPYING WORK OR USING OTHER PEOPLE’S IDEAS

When you use the same words or when you use someone else’s ideas and hand it in as your own work, you are cheating. This is considered plagiarism.

In academic work this is unacceptable. NMIT has a very clear policy on this. It is not okay to copy or use other people’s work without citing it. 

Whether you found it in a book in the library or took it straight from the internet, if you haven’t referenced or cited it correctly you are cheating.

Not knowing how to reference is not an excuse. For helpful hints on how to avoid plagiarism, check out the website.

To help NMIT offers referencing guilds for different programme areas, to help you get it right click here.
