Referencing and Plagiarism
Direct quotations of 6 to 40 words must be included in double quotation marks followed by the
author last name and page number. For direct quotations of more than 40 words you should use a
blocked indented paragraph. However, your assignment should not be a mere copy and paste of
other people’s work even if you properly reference it. Quoting or reproducing large sections of
other work and referencing it does not earn any marks as it does not show that you understand the
issues or that you can apply them. Try as much as possible to paraphrase other’s work and include
your own opinions and examples. When you paraphrase, note that you still have to identify the
source of your information. All assignments are checked for plagiarism extensively by the markers
using a variety of methods and technologies including TurnItIn. Students that have plagiarized will
fail the module or be expelled from the course. It is important that you reference properly all
information that you have obtained from other sources. Instructions on how to reference are

available in the module page and the student support page. If you have any questions regarding
your assignment please do not hesitate to contact your module tutor.
The Student Assessment Feedback form gives you an indication of the marking criteria. Some key
points are: In order to pass you must show that you understand most if not all the theory at a basic
level and you can apply it. In order to get a high mark you must show an in depth understanding of
the material, a high level of analytic ability, extensive research and an ability to craft a wellstructured answer.
