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.

The training dates for the first semester are:

Wednesday 24th February 11:00 - 13:00 (MS Teams)
Thursday 25th March 11:00 - 13:00 (MS Teams)
Wednesday 28th April 13:30 - 15:30 tba
Tuesday 4th May 11:00 - 13:00 tba
Thursday 27th May, 13:30 – 15:30 tba
Tuesday 8th June 13:30 – 15:30 tba

The link to register to attend any of the training sessions is http://bit.ly/TTI2021.

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