Everything has changed in 2020. College life looks really different, possibly more challenging. But what’s so bad about getting a bit of help with your assignments when you’re under pressure?

Essay mills promise to help by doing your coursework for a low fee. This is contract cheating. They offer to write assignments, essays and even theses for third level students and they’re really good at targeting students they think might be struggling. If you’re caught using Essay Mills, you can lose your place on your course, have your degree revoked or have your marks downgraded.

If you are approached by an Essay Mill or another contract cheating service, make sure and report it to Quality and Qualifications Ireland below, because it’s now an offence to help someone cheat in their exams and assignments.

Don't feel tempted to take short cuts to academic success if you're feeling under pressure. Get in touch with your vital college supports and make sure it's all #myownwork. There are other options … find out more below.
