Welcome to Week 4

Welcome to the final week of the course. Don’t worry if you’ve fallen behind, the content will remain available so that you can return to the course when you wish to.

This week, you’ll be looking at the ways in which you’ll be asked to write at university. You’ll discuss the important points to remember when writing in an academic context and hear advice on how to approach a written assignment. You’ll also learn about ‘academic integrity’ and why it’s vital that you correctly reference the sources that you use in your research.

You’ll also hear advice for understanding the feedback you receive on your assignments and how you can use this to improve for next time.

Don’t forget to record any points you find useful in your reflective journal.


Before you start the week, we’d like to hear your thoughts on the question below.

Think back to the written work you have previously completed either for your education or a personal project. How do you think a written assignment for university will differ?
