BEWARE: ESSAY WRITING SERVICES ARE TRYING TO LURE YOU INTO ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT!

Yesterday morning, cards for an essay and dissertation writing service  were being distributed outside the front of the Marylebone campus. This service is not linked to the university in any way and is offering a service that could result in students being excluded from their course. 

 The card states that their services are 100% legal. This is true – they are not breaking the law by selling essays but submitting work that has not been written by you is an ACADEMIC OFFENCE which is taken very seriously by the university and could result in exclusion. 

 If you are struggling with your writing, please sign up for the excellent workshops and tutorials offered  by our Academic Learning Development team: https://www.westminster.ac.uk/study/current-students/support-and-facilities/academic-learning-development or discuss your writing difficulties with your personal tutor.
