Reports

There are different types of reports that you may be asked to write so be sure to check your assignment brief. As reports involve research it may be useful to look at our guide on finding information.

Before you start writing this report it is a good idea to have a look at the feedback you received on your previous assignments so you know what you did well and where you can improve. Have a look at the guide on using feedback for advice on how you can improve in specific areas. 

The Higher Education Assignment Toolkit takes you through all of the stages of writing your assignment and has some advice on structuring your report.  It is available as a PDF and as an interactive version.
