Developing your writing skills is an important part of your academic education. While written assignments are a way to assess your learning it is also an opportunity for you, as a student, to really get to grips with what you are learning. Within these assignments you should always aim to show that you have both understood what you are learning about and that you are able to put ideas/arguments/theories into context and together with other relevant material.
Different assignments, however, require different approaches and styles. For that purpose we have created some useful short guides on different types of written assignments, as well as more general guides regarding good writing practice.
