Plagiarism during the examinations

All academic work, written or otherwise, submitted by a student is expected to be the result of his/her own work. The University views acts of copyright infringement and plagiarism as a serious offence.

Plagiarism is the act of taking words, ideas and thoughts of others and presenting it as your own. It is a form of theft which involves a number of dishonest academic activities. Please read the University’s Policy on Copyright Infringement and Plagiarism and the Student Disciplinary Code, which are both available on myUnisa:

Students are advised to study the Disciplinary Code, especially chapter 3 (1.19).
