What next

You have reached the end of Week 1! How have you found this week? What did you enjoy the most? We’d love to hear your thoughts - please share any feedback in the comments section.

You should now be able to identify the key features of an academic essay and will have considered techniques for developing the organisational structure, language and content of an essay.

Week 2 will look at how to organise a complete essay, and at what writing in an impersonal style means. You will also look at choosing an essay title so you can begin to develop your own essay, and put these new skills into action.

Don’t forget to mark this Step as complete, and then head on over to Week 2.
