If the work is plagiarism free, why can I not submit it?

Type: Support Article. Published: 1st Apr 2024

The work itself is free from plagiarism which means that there is no matched content within it. All information is referenced correctly and has been paraphrased from sources. If you were to claim that you had completed this work by submitting it to your university, you would be plagiarising the writers work.

Plagiarism is defined as the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as your own. This is something that universities take very seriously; to commit an act of plagiarism would mean severe consequences for you as a student. You may automatically fail the assignment, be made to retake the entire module or year and in some cases, even struck off the course completely. Aside from the serious consequences that plagiarising can have, if you do not complete your own work, you would not develop the skills and knowledge that you need to progress throughout the course and, effectively, your future career.
