‘Contract cheating’ in universities is a growing threat

University students in Tanzania are increasingly hiring individuals and bureaus to write research reports and dissertations on their behalf in exchange for money, reports The Citizen.

If you happen to meet a student who has just completed and passed undergraduate or postgraduate studies, the chances are that their research reports or dissertations were crafted by people who are helping students cheat. What the students do is prepare their research proposal and contract the ‘academic writers’ to do the rest of the work for an agreed fee.

An investigation by The Citizen has discovered a rising number of bureaus and individuals who survive by writing dissertations and research reports for postgraduates and undergraduates. This form of academic dishonesty is widespread among postgraduate students, most of whom are employed in the public as well as the private sectors.
