The issue of plagiarism has become a hot topic in higher education in recent years. There is much generic advice available about deterring and dealing with plagiarism. There are also many studies relevant to international students. Dealing with student plagiarism as a teacher of international students turns out to be a complex issue. The first section focuses on how institutions and teachers can teach international students about how to avoid plagiarism, ensure they have the necessary skills to avoid it, and deal fairly with cases amongst international students when they do occur. The other sections contain additional guidance on group work, assessment and feedback and critical thinking.
