The author has more than 14 years’ experience in higher education, supporting students in essaywriting and in marking across all levels up to masters, and as an external examiner. This article examines and highlights the general principles which will assist the student in writing an academic essay. Its aim is to encourage the student and to reduce some of the stress that essay-writing causes. Areas such as maintaining confidentiality, word count, structure, first or third person, reflective accounts, marking criteria, referencing, the range of robust academic sources, plagiarism, spelling and grammar and presentation will be discussed. The most important area of seeking advice from your tutor and reading feedback will be emphasised.
