The Department takes plagiarism very seriously, please consult the plagiarism guide to find out more about what constitutes plagiarism and its consequences.
Student Feedback is very important to the Department and at the end of each year we compose a report in response to the feedback obtained from the students throughout the year. The Department's response to the feedback received from undergraduate students in 2015-16 can be viewed here.
CamTools and Moodle Resources
There are various CamTools and Moodle sites where students can access resources for papers (you will need to log on via Raven). The SPS Library site allows you to access electronic journals and has copies of a number of electronic versions of reading list material. If you are taking a borrowed paper in Part II you may have access to additional sites via the another department. These sites have a range of useful materials including lecture handouts as well as a forum for student discussion. It is important that students check they have access to both their Part specific site and the CamTools/Moodle site.
POLIS uses Moodle for Part II students. It allows for a range of online tools to support teaching as well as a place for lecture resources to be accessed. Please check that you have access to all your specific sites. If you need any assistance please contact the Undergraduate Secretary, Ms Charlotte Moss.
