6. Noticeboard in Student Room
Student Room is an area in our Student Login area. We have a new notice board facility in the student room where students, friends and colleagues can promote events, or anything else.

Students –Check it out and let us know if you want something posted.

7. Plagiarism warning

We’ve detected a growing incidence of students copying work from web sites into assignments.
If there is any suggestion of work not being original (ie. Your own words) you will need to repeat and resubmit.

Remember: it may be easy for students to copy work from the internet. But it is also easy for tutors to search the net and quickly determine where you have copied it from.

  • Copying does nothing to improve your learning
  • Colleges that allow copying cannot hold respect in academic circles or with employers
  • By being strict on plagiarism we strengthen the credentials of our graduates
