Disclosure date: 29 August 2013
Could you please let me know how many students you disciplined in the academic years 2011-12 and 2012-13 (a figure for each year) for handing in custom essays or assignments bought from essay writing services (or essay mills, as they’re sometimes called).
Note that I don’t mean plagiarism where a student has copied Wikipedia or an academic work without attribution – I mean essays they’ve commissioned paid writers to do.
Of those disciplined, could you let me know
a) how they were punished
b) how many were from outside the UK
