Turnitin policy

The Faculty requires academic staff to utilise Turnitin a similarity detection software prior to assessing any written work comprising 1,000 words or more (excluding referencing). If the response rate from Turnitin exceeds 15% (excluding referencing), the Faculty requires staff to review the student's written work. This policy will come into effect from semester 1, 2017.

Undergraduate students

Students enrolled at a first or second year level will be permitted unlimited Turnitin resubmission attempts. For students enrolled in third and fourth year levels, only a single submission attempt is permitted.

Postgraduate students

Students enrolled at the postgraduate level will be permitted a single submission attempt. 

The unit coordinator/chief examiner will have discretion to allow multiple resubmission attempts on a case-by-case basis in circumstances where essay based assessment may not necessarily have been undertaken at an early stage in the student's degree program.

Breach of Academic Integrity

Please refer to the Faculty's Academic Integrity, Plagiarism and Collusion Policy and Procedure as well as the student academic integrity flowchart which outlines the steps involved with a suspected breach of the Student Academic Integrity Policy.
