50,000 students caught cheating at UK universities

50,000 students caught cheating at UK universities

The figures are staggering. In the last three years, almost 50,000 university students were caught cheating at UK institutions with non-EU students four times more likely to cheat in exams and essays according to freedom of information data obtained by the Times. 11 institutions caught at least 1,000 students cheating over this three-year period with five students at Kent University even arranging for someone else to sit their exams.

The staggering figures

According to this Guardian article, the five universities to catch the highest number of cheating students are Kent (1,947), Westminster (1,933), East London (1,828), Sheffield Hallam (1,740) and Oxford Brookes (1,711).

Although they only account for 12% of the UK’s student population, non-EU students made up 35% of students caught cheating. At London’s Queen Mary University, for example, 75% of postgraduates charged with plagiarism were non-EU students with one third hailing from China.

As one professor from the University of Buckingham told the Times, one factor that fuels plagiarism is the increasing use of essay-writing services, which charge students hundreds of pounds. One such service, Ivory Research in London’s Canary Wharf area, proudly boasts to use “only the best writers in the industry” who can produce work for you that “will be of the highest academic standard.” The problem, however, is that you can still get caught cheating and you don’t increase your skill set, which could cause problems in the future.

Why we never help students cheat

At Über Tutors we never write essays for our students as we believe that the best way to help is by equipping students with the necessary skills. As a result of our essay and dissertation guidance, 98% of our students get top grades in their essays and improve by up to 30%. Our university tutors teach British, EU and non-EU students alike and are aware of the language and learning issues that can arise.

"We are incredibly grateful for Uber Tutors professional and comprehensive services. We are moving from the USA to the UK and our 12 year old needed to learn an entirely different system of education. Tania worked with us and accommodated the 8 hr time difference btw LA and London and found the perfect match for us. Joseph worked with our son for 3 months and achieved all of our goals. We are so grateful that we found this service!"

"Tania's tutor took my daughter from a C in her mock GCSE Maths to an A in the exam! Plus she helped her to get an A in A-Level English - so we are very happy. She was very good at matching the personality of the maths tutor to my daughter, too."

"Tania is always available, very honest and competent. She is always happy to listen and tailor the service to clients needs. The two tutors that we had for most of the time (Henry and Joseph) were amazing and the kids flourished under their support. We would have not passed the exam that they were preparing for without Tania and her team."
