  6. 6. Nine expelled for plagiarism at Deakin By JOHN ROSS (The Australian: October 06, 2012) ‘Up to 30 students at Victoria's Deakin University have been found guilty of plagiarism and nine have been expelled, the university revealed yesterday’ ‘The International Education Association of Australia said it was becoming increasingly challenging to police plagiarism. “It’s incredibly difficult for institutions to track where some of this material is coming from and to guarantee it is generated by the student,” said executive director Phil Honeywood. He stressed that plagiarism was not limited to international students, or students per se. “We’ve had vice-chancellors dismissed for plagiarism too,” he said. Parental pressure and the challenges of the English language and different teaching methodologies could lead some overseas students to “take shortcuts”, he said. “However the potential damage to their family’s reputation and future career prospects would discourage the vast majority.”
