Writing

Writing for university assignments is probably going to be different from what you’ve been used to so far. Whether it’s an essay, lab report, dissertation or other task, your module handbook will tell you what’s expected and how you’ll be assessed, whilst the guidance here will help you develop your skills and your own style.


“I had a discipline change and had to shift the way I write, because the writing for history is different from the way you would write for other disciplines” - Laura Theobald, PG student
