Avoiding Plagiarism

In order to enhance students’ understanding of plagiarism, all new undergraduate students (including senior years admittees) and postgraduate students, are required to complete an online mini-course entitled ‘Online Tutorial on Plagiarism Awareness’ by the end of their first year and by the end of the first semester respectively in Lingnan. Completion will be indicated by ticking a check-box at the end of the tutorial.

The students will be blocked from the next course registration if they have not completed the ‘Online Tutorial on Plagiarism Awareness’.  They can check their status on this requirement in Degree Works under the tab ‘Plagiarism Awareness’.  (Only those students who are required to complete the course will have the tab shown.)

The Online Tutorial on Plagiarism Awareness is an hour long and consists of video and exercises.  Students can access to it at the Lingnan Portal or by clicking the link below:

Although only the new undergraduate students starting from 2016-17 intake are required to complete the tutorial, all students are encouraged to study the materials and can retrieve the materials as many times as necessary.
