A spokesman said the article was written "on a very short deadline, without properly attributing some of the source material. This was swiftly rectified, the lecturer has apologised to the student concerned, who does not wish to take the matter further, and the matter is closed."
When the story first appeared in the Varsity student magazine, Dr Morrison dismissed it as "tittle-tattle", and considered the matter "dealt with officially and properly". She said the student concerned was "fine". When contacted by the magazine, the student declined to comment.
