Australian student visa: An international student in Australia has had his visa cancelled due to plagiarism as he was found to have copied a number of his assignments directly from internet sources without attribution. The affected student is from Pakistan and was studying business in Melbourne.
The affected student is from Pakistan and was studying business in Melbourne when his visa was cancelled last year by the immigration department. His appeal to overturn the decision on his visa has been declined by the administrative appeals tribunal.
During the hearing of his appeal, the student had blamed the education provider for failing to educate him about the consequences of his conduct, The Australian reported.
He told the immigration department that he was not advised how to source information from an online source or provide information about different referencing styles required for assignments.
“I had received a competent grade in all of my assignments,” he said.
“Not a single assessor of mine had advised me of any situation involving plagiarism.”
