This assignment will be one of the first examples of academic writing you will produce for this programme which may seem quite daunting. However, there are some tips below that will enable you to fulfil the requirements of the module.
Structuring your work:
Introduction: The introduction consists of two parts: It should include a few general statements about the subject to provide a background to your essay and to attract the reader’s attention. It should try to explain why you are writing the essay. (Approximately 250 words).
Main Body: The main body of the essay should be divided into paragraphs, each of which begins with a topic sentence and then supports that point with specific ideas and evidence. Each paragraph should develop the argument in a logical and structured manner and be clearly linked to the paragraphs that go before and after. (Answering the 5 questions approximately 300 words per answer).
Conclusion: A summary of the main points (being careful not to repeat exactly what you have written before) (Approximately 250 words).
