The Student

The Student is a podcast show about university teaching and learning and everything that is in-between. A show where students share about their daily lives, academic routines, their views about education, the quality of their studies and beyond.

This show is made possible through the subgrant from the Media Initiatives Center and supported by the US Embassy in Armenia. The authors are fully responsible for the views and voices raised in the episodes.

Episode 1: Academic Honesty and Plagiarism

Do you know where the word “plagiarism” comes from? And what are the key reasons for the students to plagiarise and buy academic papers? In this episode, we talk to Christine Goroyan about her research among Armenian students, their motives to buy academic papers and reasons to plagiarise.  Back in 2015, Christine, with a team of other students from the American University of Armenia well explored this issue.
