Self-plagiarism involves re-using your own previously written work or data in a new assignment and not referencing it. You must always reference your sources, even if you are referencing your own work.
- If you use material from a previous assignment you must reference it appropriately.
- You must never re-use a piece of work you have already submitted
- If re-sitting a course do not submit the same piece of work
If you are not sure what to do, then talk to your tutor.
