IT Help and Support

University Information Services

Our centrally managed text-matching software service is Turnitin.

University Information Services (UIS) supports the technical side of Turnitin and the Education Quality and Policy Office (EQPO) is responsible for any policy guidelines and questions relating to academic integrity. You can find further guidance on Turnitin policy via the Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct web pages

Turnitin allows users to upload documents that contain a minimum of 20 words to a repository to be checked against any stored papers or online resources and publications. Turnitin is only available for student submissions through Moodle. The file must contain at least 20 words and not just images.

Staff with a teacher role on a course can access Turnitin via Moodle or directly if they have a Turnitin account. Further details can be found in the Turnitin Assignment help guide on Moodle.
