Essay mills – criminal offence

Students around the world, including those at University of Portsmouth, are being targeted by companies offering to write assessments for payment.

The Government has made it illegal for companies to write assignments for students for financial gain, and to advertise these services.

No student should be tempted to engage with these companies or individuals. Not only is it a breach of the Code of Student Behaviour, which could result in exclusion from the University, but it also damages your long term success and likelihood of securing a good job after University.
