Assessment offences

We take cheating, collusion, plagiarism and other breaches of assessment regulations very seriously.

UWE Bristol's Assessment Offences Policy

You are advised to read the University's Assessment Offences Policy which provides examples of assessment offences and sets out the penalties which may be applied.

In the event that you are involved in any allegation of an assessment offence, you will be given an opportunity to discuss the nature of the allegation, the investigative procedures and their possible outcomes, with a nominated staff member responsible for dealing with such matters in your faculty. 

A copy of the assignment, annotated to indicate the content causing concern, can be made available to you on request. 

Advice for students

In such instances, you may also wish to contact The Students' Union at UWE Bristol Advice Centre for independent guidance, advice and support in this matter. Many cases of plagiarism arise because quotations from books and other sources are not properly referenced. Please seek advice from your faculty if you are in doubt about referencing.
