CLaSS Student Resources: Academic Writing

Higher education assignment toolkit

One of the defining features of academic writing is that it is based on research so you will need to read for your assignments and include references in in them. The DMU referencing guide provides detailed instructions on how to do this.

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