The use of short extracts from books, journals or other sources for examination or assessment is allowed on a “Fair Dealing” basis. For information about how much you can copy, please see the Fair Dealing section of this guide. As a general guide:
It is possible to use more than a "short extract" with permission from the rightsowner. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
Answering Exam Questions and Writing Coursework /Assignments.
Students are also allowed to quote and include copied materials for assessed coursework and exams. Full referencing of sources is not required by students answering exam questions but coursework does need to be properly referenced to ensure sources are acknowledged. This guidance on copying or quoting assumes the coursework is not intended for publication, display or exhibition.
Even if their work will be displayed or published, some quotation of others’ work is allowed because copying for the purposes of ‘criticism and review’ are considered fair dealing. Please see the section on fair dealing for more information.
