Referencing and Plagiarism

There are different referencing policies in use at the University of South Wales:

USW Referencing

  • if you enrolled at the University of South Wales on a course which started its first stage in September 2013 or thereafter
    OR
  • if you enrolled on a University of Glamorgan course in or before 2012/13
    OR
  • if you have gained advanced entry to join a programme that started as a University of Glamorgan course (i.e. you started your studies elsewhere and joined a course with accreditation of prior achievement). An example would be a student joining a course as a direct entry into a second or third year (Level 5 or Level 6) due to having completed one or two years of study on an equivalent course at another University.

…then the Referencing, plagiarism, and good academic practice [USW] page applies to you.

UWN Referencing

  • if you enrolled on a University of Wales, Newport course in or before 2012/13
    OR
