Hi Vic and all, At Stirling, Turnitin can be used as a learning tool before submission in all subjects in our students First Year of University, however only a few departments maintain this throughout the entire degree programme. I am currently pursuing talks with some of the schools of the University regarding extending turnitin availability to Postgraduate students in their first year, especially within Schools that have a very high volume of International (mostly Chinese) students. If anyone knows of any success stories along those lines, it would be very appreciated if you could drop me a line!
