Each year we ask all students to complete a pre-course assignment. The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with an opportunity to carry out some background reading and research around a current topic and to write a short academic essay which will be marked by your academic tutor during the first week of term. Written feedback, targets and guidance will be given in order to support you with the development of your academic writing skills at Level 7 (MA level).

The pre-course assignment brief along with some useful articles which will help you get started will be published here during the summer term.
