Plagiarism in written work

Plagiarism is seen as submitting someone else’s written paper or a part of it under their own name or using incorrect referencing/citing. The College has regulated the principles and procedures identifying plagiarism at Tallinn Health Care College, if the paper submitted by the student is suspected to be plagiarised. 

Plagiarism is detected by using the URKUND programme. If a lecturer has identified work that is suspected of plagiarism, he or she registers it in the "Academic Fraud Registry" on the college's intranet. (NB! Login required)

 In most severe cases the College can exmatriculate the student due to undignified behaviour.
