Welcome to Essay Bites, brought to you by the Academic Skills Centre (ASC) and the Centre for Technology and Innovation in Learning (CTIL). The resource comprises a number of short articles – or Bites – covering the key aspects of researching, planning and writing an essay. Whilst it’s designed in such a way that it will give you a fairly comprehensive overview of the entire process, you can also dip in and out to find the specific advice you’re looking for quickly and efficiently.
We hope that you find the Essay Bites useful and that they’ll be able to answer many of the questions or concerns you may have about writing essays at university. As the name suggests though, they are designed to provide quick introductions to the different aspects of essays, rather than going into any great depth or detail.
