How to master academic writing

by: Romany Howes (9 September 2015)

If you are one of the many going to university for the first time, then be assured, when it comes to academic writing, you are in for a shock. There is a whole new world that awaits you when you come to write your first dissertation.

Some of you may pooh-pooh this: after all, you got an A* in English at A Level. But do you know the difference between Harvard and Chicago referencing? I didnít think so. Formatting an essay is extremely hard: you need to pay attention to line spacing, tabs, margins, abbreviations, table of contents, figure tables . . . and thatís before you have even reached the references. And donít forget the headings 1, 2 and 3.

1. This is what

1.1. ultimately your essay headings

1.1.1 may be required to look like.

Your expectations for a good essay will not be the same as your professorsí. Writing academic literature is not just about showing that you have absorbed the taught material, but that you have thought critically about ideas, weighed up the different sides of arguments, investigated supporting evidence, and based your argument on in-depth research.

Let us help you. We provide a proofreading service for students that not only checks grammar and spelling, but also formatting. So contact us for a competitive quote when it comes to handing in your essay. You write it, we perfect it.
