Any act of plagiarism or collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the College
regulations. In this context the definitions and scope of plagiarism and collusion are
presented below:
Plagiarism is presenting somebody else’s work as your own. It includes copying information
directly from the Web or books without referencing the material; submitting joint coursework
as an individual effort.
Collusion is copying another student’s coursework; stealing coursework from another
student and submitting it as your own work.
Suspected plagiarism or collusion will be investigated and if found to have occurred will be
dealt with according to the College procedure (For details on Plagiarism & Collusion
please see the Student Handbook).
3. Submission
a. Initial submission of coursework to the tutors is compulsory in each unit of the course.
b. The student must check their assignments on ICON VLE with plagiarism software Turnitin

Extenuating Circumstances (EEC) form available from the College examination office and
ICON VLE. Please note that the tutors do not have the authority to extend the coursework

form must be accompanied by evidence such as a medical certificate in the event of you
being sick, and should be submitted to the Examination Office.
b. Late submission will be accepted and marked according to the College procedure. It should
be noted that late submission may not be graded for Merit and Distinction.

treated as the final submission.
