UG event series - Essay writing: top tips

This event will be in Zoom

This session, led by a recent Politics & IR undergraduate (Queen Mary/Oxford) and two lecturers (Leeds and York) experienced in supporting students in essay writing, will take you through the process of planning, researching, drafting and writing a Politics/IR essay. The session will start with practical advice on how to interpret/break down the question and how to develop and signpost your argument. It will then move on to researching the topic, smart reading, and note-taking before guiding you through some tips on essay structure, drafting and responding to feedback. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions to the panel and they will share some helpful resources. 


Professor Simon Lightfoot (University of Leeds)
