Plagiarism, as defined in the 1995 Random House Compact Unabridged Dictionary, is the "use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work."(From Wikipedia)

In a simple word, I think that plagiarism is kind of stealing. It is to use another person's idea or a part of their work and pretend that is your own. the essence of plagiarism is copying and cheating.

Generally,most British universities think plagiarism is a serious behaviour.There are some opinions in the following.

Spokesman (University of Glamorgan) said: "we treat the question of plagiarism extremely serious, will use new electronic software and old-fashioned human investigation to detect plagiarism

Philip Dixon (Association of Teachers and Lecturers) said: "Events of paper plagiarism make people very upset, but now only occurs in the small range lazy students."

Marks for the whole module were reduced to zero, which meant the student's degree classification also dropped.

Plagiarism is the act of taking another person's writing, conversation, song, or even idea and passing it off as your own. This includes information from web pages, books, songs, television shows, email messages, interviews, articles, artworks or any other medium. Whenever you paraphrase, summarize, or take words, phrases, or sentences from another person's work, it is necessary to indicate the source of the information within your paper using an internal citation. It is not enough to just list the source in a bibliography at the end of your paper. Failing to properly quote, cite or acknowledge someone else's words or ideas with an internal citation is plagiarism.


What do british unversities think about it?

Some universities are letting students down by failing to warn them about plagiarism and its consequences until it is too late, says the official who deals with student complaints.

The annual report of the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA), due to be published on Thursday, is expected to show that complaints from students about harsh treatment by their universities over cheating have risen sharply in the past three years.


Behrens urges continuing investment in both detection and prevention. "Good students and universities have common cause here," he says. "Where academic misconduct goes undetected it is hard working students who are disadvantaged by a small minority of their peers. Students and universities can be reassured we are not a soft option on this issue."

 plagiarism is a way of stealing, I think,but plagiarism refers to something abstract,such as scientific payoffs,articles,novels,thesis and so on.

 For another, British universities are stirict to plagiarism ,because I think it is connect with people's morality, plagiarism is a terrible action,which can import you whole life,and I think the first purpose of education is building the moral ¼Œit is reasonable that British universities think that plagiarism is ashamedand it should be punished.

I think in British Universities plagiarize is a very bad thing . Plagiarize is not good for us . it is not exercise our writing ability ,reading ability and understanding ability . So as far as I am concerned British universities teachers if find people plagiarize they will warning this student , even dismissed this student .

In everywhere honest and trustworthy are important . writing the really thing that can express feelings . I know writing the same thing with the other people . it is very boring . do some thing by yourself that is the right way .

In China the middle school always educate our do a honest people . the family always tall our that honest is very important for us . Chinese history have many stories ,theses stories education us to be honest . I think in British is the same .

In the university , we are adults . we also should do it ourselves . I know in many foreign countries and their parents in their children at a very young age began to exercise their independence . but in China some families are de same the other families is different .

In the end , I want to say that in everywhere plagiarize always is a bad thing .

Plagiarism is the practice of using or copying someone else's idea or work and pretending that you thought of it or created it.

British universities may hate plagiarism and which students who tend to plagiarism are not allowed, because copyright plays an important role in British culture.

What do British universities think about plagiarism?

Many British univeisities consider that plagiarism is a serious academic offence.Also, it is an intellectual theft.They treat plagiarism with a very serious attitude.In Britain,academic dishonesty is never condoned by the university.

It can not be denied that plagiarism is an act of fraud,involved both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means

As far as i am concerned,the reason why many student have plagiarism in academics is that  they want to have good grade,nevertheless, they do a mistaken way,i think students should finish their study by themselves .

To be honest ¼Œplagiarism in China is not a secret, lots of foreign TV shows, some famous hosts,even some famous newspaper criticize that.The plagiarism covers lots of fields, including famous brands, scientific payoffs and so on, though every cheinese ackonwledge the phenomenon, they do not change it, until the media exposed the opened secret.   I think it is ridiculous , bacause it is being clamped  down  in foreign countries for years  while CHINA raises the importance until now, for myself,aha,I have copyed my homework only one time in senior high school, becase the homeworks were too much for us ,almost every student has to copy  homeork they do  not have completed, teachers knew that, but they had no idea, homework can not be changed.

So,in my opinion, the copy for material gain can  not be tolerated,and you should raise the phenomenon, so if you have to copy, I think you should be honest, to label who or what you copyed from, and afford the cost of plagiarism.
