Turnitin Originality Checking Platform

All written works (assignments, articles, dissertations and theses) must be checked for originality.  For this purpose, we use an online platform called Turnitin, an academic plagiarism checker technology. All postgraduate students must be registered on the Turnitin platform at the time of writing the proposal, by their own supervisor.  There are opportunities to attend Turnitin Training sessions, specifically aimed at supervisors of postgraduate students. 

Supervisors of postgraduate students should attend the training to be registered on the platform.  Supervisors must register their own students on the platform.
