In the first instance, your tutor should inform you that your work is ‘under investigation’ and your mark for the work will be withheld.

If the work is found to be ‘minor malpractice’ you will be invited to discuss the item of work with the module leader.  This meeting may result in a number of outcomes, for example, a requirement to resubmit the work within 48 hours or a reduction of the mark.  Please refer to the Academic Procedures and Processes for further information.  It is important to note that multiple occasions of ‘minor malpractice’ will result in an appearance at a major malpractice panel. 

If your work is suspected to be ‘major malpractice’ you will be invited to attend a Major Malpractice Panel of Inquiry.
