A spokesperson for Cardiff Met said: “The best universities suffer from plagiarism, as illustrated by a recent survey that found almost one in two Cambridge students in a poll of 1000 admitted to cheating in their studies.

“It is impossible to know whether the levels of cheating at Cardiff Metropolitan are different to other institutions, but these figures demonstrate just how closely Cardiff Met student monitors work.

“We use anti-plagiarism software, and as technology has improved, so has the ability to catch anyone who cheats.

“Our message to students is simple: we are extremely vigilant so don’t take the risk – the consequences will be very severe.”
