Referencing is considered good academic practice. It is essential for acknowledging the sources you have used in your work, and for avoiding a charge of plagiarism. Plagiarism is an academic offence, and is defined by the University Student Regulations as 'the significant use by a student of other people's work and the submission of it as though it were is or her own'. You can avoid plagiarism with correct referencing.
