Stressed?Avoid plagiarism. Completing your coursework assignments is a major challenge if English isn’t your first language. You know what you want to say in your own language but how to you put the same point across in English. You have read and understood an important source but how do you paraphrase it properly? If you don’t you could be in trouble for plagiarism.

Plagiarism, a word students worry about more than any other. If your supervisor feels the writing in your assignment may not be your own then he or she may use the university’s account with Turnitin to check your file. If it shows a high level, perhaps over 20% then you may well have a serious problem. If you are lucky your supervisor may give you a chance to rewrite and resubmit the assignment but in many cases the university could start disciplinary proceedings straight away.

The penalties for plagiarism can be heavy. You may be failed for that academic year and have to retake it or be expelled altogether from the institution. For students in the UK on a student visa the situation is even more complicated. Plagiarism can lead to loss of student status and possible deportation!

If all this sounds gloomy then let’s be positive. There is no reason to take these risks. Your assignments can be checked before you they are submitted and any problems can be put right well before your deadline. I can help you avoid plagiarism so contact me today!
