NUS Plagiarism Notice


All students share the responsibility for upholding the academic standards and reputation of the University. Academic honesty is a prerequisite condition in the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge. Academic dishonesty is any misrepresentation with the intent to deceive or failure to acknowledge the source or falsification of information or inaccuracy of statements or cheating at examinations/tests or inappropriate use of resources. There are many forms of academic dishonesty and plagiarism is one of them. Plagiarism is generally defined as the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own (The New Oxford Dictionary of English). The University does not condone plagiarism.

Please refer to Plagiarism Warning notice.
