Please note that this is intended to be an individual piece of work.  Ensure that you read through your work prior to submission. For some assignments you may be asked to use the University Plagiarism detection service ‘Turnitin’.  Action will be taken where a student is suspected of having cheated or engaged in any dishonest practice.  Students are referred to the University regulations on plagiarism and other forms of academic irregularity.  Students must not copy or collude with one another or present any information that they themselves have not generated.
