On this course you will focus on the different stages in the process of writing an academic essay in response to the following question:

“Evaluate the success or failure of the World Bank’s approach to promoting water privatisation in the global south.”

This is a topic that you may know nothing about at the moment, but as the course progresses and you read more about this topic, and discuss it with other learners, your understanding will grow.

You will write some sections of this essay during the course, and if you choose to follow the two-week Tutor-Marked Assessment, you will write the complete essay and receive individualised feedback on it.
