The University uses the Turnitin Feedback Studio program within the Aula Global for the delivery of student work. This program compares the originality of the work delivered by each student with millions of electronic resources and detects those parts of the text that are copied and pasted. If the student has correctly made the appointment and the bibliographic reference of the documents he uses as a source, Turnitin will not mark it as plagiarism. Any way of carrying out the research and writing the work that is not in a personal and autonomous way may be considered fraudulent by the court. TFGs only have a single convocatory, within which there are two calls. At the time of the first call, the student will communicate if he presents the work in this one or leaves it for the second. In the event that the work does not pass the evaluation in the selected calling, the student will have to re-register the subject TFG in the following course.
