February 12th, 2009

When you’re writing your first university essay you’ll generally not really understand how you write and what you will need to add to your essay to make it award-winning great. I looked at an essay the other day, which I wrote at the start of my very first year at university, and I look back […]

All about resources for your paper (Part 2 Dissertations/Theses)

November 15th, 2007

Yesterday I posted about sources and their relevance to essays and reports, similar to a 3,000 word essay you could write at college or university as a student. Today, in this post, I’m going to delve into the world of dissertations and theses – which I consider one in the same. No matter where you […]

All about resources for your paper (Part 1 – Essays and Reports)

November 14th, 2007

Every time I received a paper, research question or conducting a group project I always wondered how many sources I should read, and how many I ‘needed’ to include in my paper, the references section and how many sources to actually quote from. Looking at this from a later point of view I wonder how […]

When do you write your best stuff?

November 7th, 2007

Knowing when you can write your best work is crucial. Whether it’s when you first get up, after lunch, after you’ve had a workout, or in the small hours of the morning; it will affect how you write, the ideas you get and what goes down on paper. For me, in the middle of the […]

I can write my essay in a few hours can’t I?

October 31st, 2007

How long do you need to write an essay answer of 3,000 words? can you ramble it off in a couple of hours, or will it take you days on end to get it finished, proofread and printed so that you can hand it in? I used to wonder about this all the time when […]

University Dean suspended for Plagiarism

October 30th, 2007

Today I was taking a look through the education section of the Guardian site – education.guardian.co.uk. The site is UK-based and predominantly for UK students, but does cover an array of information for students throughout the world. It seems, recently, that I’ve been reading more and more on plagiarism in the academic arena than ever […]

9 Steps to Success – I’ve got an Essay Question/Project, what do I do?

October 26th, 2007

Following on from a post the other day about writing your essay at 5am in morning and the thought of writing your essay in one go, I want to flip the coin and post what you could do as soon as you receive an essay question or project. Slap, Bang and a wallop! So, you’ve […]

It’s 5am and I’m still writing

October 24th, 2007

So, I wonder how many people stay up to 5am (or longer) in the morning still writing their essays? Well, I have to confess that I stayed up writing essays until (sometimes) 11am in the morning. Once I got ‘on a roll’ I couldn’t stop and had to finish the whole essay from start until […]

Uni Libraries – I’m all confused!

October 22nd, 2007

University libraries are generally extensive and are located in huge buildings, like Newcastle University Library (UK) in the picture to the left. With thousands of students on campus each day, studying a wide array of subjects, the library has to stock a vast amount of material. If you think of the course you are on, […]
