The Writing for Assignments E-Library project is a resource to help people learn about writing at university. Learning by example is known to be effective. Genuine and successful students’ work can be viewed with comments explaining why it is good and, in some cases, how academics thought the writing could be improved. Use this site to perfect your skills and develop your understanding of how writing works.

It includes

  • Examples of student essays and other university assignments from a number of subject areas
  • Comments from lecturers about why the writing is good – or how it could be improved
