self-plagiarism

hi! have anyone encountered self-plagiarism referral at uni? I'm a postgrad student and had been called to senate for further investigation. I didn't know self-plagiarism existed up until this moment :frown: Help! Am I gonna get expelled from uni just because I use my own work? :frown:

At postgrad you could as they might expect you to have learnt about self-plagiarism in undergrad.

Hi there,

Really sorry about your situation, it sounds like a difficult time to be going through! I recommend contacting your Student Union. They usually have support services for instances like this and would be best suited to support you further.

I know about plagiarism, but had no idea about self-plagiarism up until this point :frown:

I did right away after I got the referral, and the PIC said we need to wait for 8-10 weeks to get the letter from senate. I'm really worried about the consequences as supposedly my project/dissertation starts in May, and couldn't do anything until overall grade is known (now is pending due to the accusation). Plus, I'm under sponsorship, worried how it will affect if they will fail me ☹️
