• Coursework


These pages tell you how to improve your coursework, for example, about good writing and presentation techniques to help you get those extra marks! They also tell you other things you need to know, like how to cite references and what counts as plagiarism.

When you’re given a piece of coursework it’s important to be sure you know exactly what’s expected of you and how it will be marked. Check your module handbook or any guidance notes you’ve been given. If you’re still not sure, talk to your lecturer, and remember other support is available, just ask for help.

If you find it difficult to find textbooks, articles or other reading for your assignment, you could get in touch with your subject librarian who can give you tips on searching for information
