Plagiarism - International students an overrepresented group

Unfortunately international students are significantly overrepresented in regards to cases of reported plagiarism at the university. Often times these cases are unfortunately because of a lack of knowledge about what is considered plagiarism as opposed to a student knowingly plagiarising information.

Students should be aware that they need to follow the rules of academic writing, and can receive more information about the different rules regarding referencing and academic writing from the university.

Students who would like more information can find links to instructions on academic writing, guides to thesis writing, and more information on our webpage. If any aspects are unclear it is important you contact Johanna Persson at the university for clarification.
