The Penalty for Plagiarism Is About To Get Deservedly Harsh

University students could be fined or handed criminal records for plagiarised essays, new proposals suggest.

University students who buy essays online face fines and a criminal record under plans to punish plagiarism being considered by the government.

For the first time, students caught cheating could be criminalised amid fears that a burgeoning “essay mills” industry is threatening the quality of a British university degree.

Last month The Telegraph revealed that upwards of 20,000 students enrolled at British universities are paying up to £6,750 for bespoke essays in order to obtain degrees.

Good.
