PLAGIARISM, SYNDICATION & CHEATING
Sunway University has strict rules to ensure that students’ work for assessment is actually the result of their individual effort, skills and knowledge and has not been produced by means that will give an unfair advantage over other students.
Students must ensure that any work submitted for assessment is genuine and not plagiarized (borrowed or copied, without specific acknowledgement, or stolen from other published and unpublished work). If you are quoting actual words from a published source – or even from work or your own – you must acknowledge that fact each time you do it by using quotation marks and citing your source in the text of your coursework. There are correct academic conventions for how you should do this, which you must follow. It is not enough just to list sources in a bibliography at the end of your essay if you do not acknowledge the actual quotes in the text. Neither is it acceptable to change some of the words or the order of sentences if, by failing to acknowledge the source properly, you give the impression that it is your own work.
You must also take care that, unless you are specifically instructed that a piece of work for assessment is to be produced jointly with other students, the work you submit has been prepared by you alone. If you collude with other students to prepare a piece of work jointly, or copy each other’s work, and pass it off as an individual effort, it is syndication and against the University’s regulations. It is obviously unethical to copy another student’s work without his or her knowledge.
When you sit for examinations / tests, you must make sure that you bring to the examination hall only those materials that you are allowed to use for the examination. If you bring in any unauthorized materials, such as notes, you will be in breach of the University’s regulations. Plagiarism is regarded as cheating and bringing unauthorized materials into examination will leave you open to similar charge.
These breaches of regulations are dealt with in the Student Handbook. If it is suspected that you are guilty of plagiarism or any other form of cheating you will be called to a disciplinary interview and may also have to appear before a Disciplinary Committee. If the allegation is proved, a penalty, such as the deduction of marks or failure of a subject or unit will be imposed. Severe penalties such as suspension or expulsion can be imposed in appropriate cases.
