turnitin logoThe University uses Turnitin, a plagiarism detection and prevention database which will provide feedback to you on the similarity of your work compared with a worldwide collection of resources and previously submitted student work. 

We have produced some videos for you to show how turnitin is used by the University for submission of work and to give feedback and grade information.

Please note: Some of the screen grabs in the videos are now outdated. The principles remain the same, but your screen will not always look the same as those in the videos. All PDF guides have been updated January 2019.

  • Turnitin Test Area

    Why not test your essay before submission? Most plagiarism happens accidentally, normally as a result of poor referencing. We would encourage you to use the turnitin test area available on Blackboard and use the similarity feedback it provides to ensure your work is referenced correctly. A video on how to use the test area is available.
