Guidelines for essay writing

Introduction
Assignments in the form of essays, reports, reflective journals, observations and theses are central to the evaluation of students’ performance at college. Unlike exams, continuous assessment gives you the opportunity to research a topic extensively, organise your material, plan carefully and write up the essay in a less stressful situation. A much higher quality of work is therefore expected. While the proverbial “person in the street” could write an intelligent and well-argued essay, your essay must go a stage further and show familiarity with theoretical concepts, frames of references and research.

These guidelines are designed to help you produce high quality written assignments and they focus particularly on essay writing.
