Description

For a 4000-word essay it is expected that you would have an introduction and conclusion. In your introduction (c. 00 words) briefly explain the focus of your essay in terms of the concepts theories and examples you will be using and the general thread of your argument.

It can also be useful to explain why the essay question is an important question to ask.

In your conclusion (c. 500 words) briefly synthesis what you have discussed (rather than merely repeat it) identify any key conclusions and identify areas for further work e.g. future areas for research and theory and/or policy and practice.

– Always support your claims with references

– Your argument is more convincing if you can use more than one source to back up a claim

– Use contemporary sources: if you are using a dated source you need to make clear its relevance

– Do not just rely on sources provided by your lecturer – the stronger essays will show evidence of wider reading (refer to markscheme: “Clear evidence of wider reading beyond ‘essential reading’ and lecture notes”)
