Daily News Roundup - Watchdog to pursue essay-cheat websites

Watchdog to pursue essay-cheat websites

The universities watchdog is being asked to pursue websites advertising essay-writing services for students.

Universities Minister Jo Johnson said he wanted "tough action" against the spread of plagiarism and the commercial industry it has spawned.

The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) said hundreds of "essay mills" were charging up to £6,750 for writing a PhD dissertation.

"This form of cheating is unacceptable, and every university should have strong policies and sanctions in place to detect and deal with it," said Mr Johnson.

"Essay mill websites threaten to undermine the high quality reputation of a UK degree, so it is vital that the sector works together to address this in a consistent and robust way."
