- 2019/12/03

One of the academic activities offered by the Department of English Language is the awareness campaign on intellectual plagiarism (scientific theft) under the slogan: 'Do Not Copy ... Be Creative!'

This campaign aims at raising awareness about the seriousness of intellectual plagiarism, in addition to providing information about its various types, the penalties against its perpetrators, and how to avoid it. The campaign also offers meaningful advice and constructive dialogue with academic staff members. And last, but not least, it gives students the chance to participate in promoting awareness of this problem.
