This paper attempts to explore the perception of referencing and plagiarism amongst students coming from Confucian cultural heritage. The focus of this paper concentrates on these students' learning approaches and styles and associated problems. This paper evaluates research conducted among all such students who are studying in Australia. The paper identifies both positive and negative perceptions and highlights several misperceptions on students from Confucian cultural heritage that are commonly held by Western academics. Finally, the paper presents an overview of strategies that might be adopted by Western academics in order to make these students' experiences in Australian universities more enjoyable and successful.
