assignments will undergo checks. A copy of the Turnitin report will be attached to each assignment and its
results noted by the College before final submission for internal verification and Academic Board decisions.
Any assignment found to have been subject to plagiarism, collusion or data fabrication will be subject to the
Colleges unfair practice procedure. Students are therefore advised to familiarise themselves with the
consequences associated with these offences. Details of the procedure can be obtained from the
administration office at the College and from the awarding body.
