How Do I Complete Undergraduate Degree Level Work?

You’ve been asked to complete an undergraduate level essay. This article will assist you in understanding what is required.

What is Undergraduate Level?

In the UK, students writing at undergraduate level have not yet graduated from university. They may be completing work for their 1st, 2nd or 3rd (or sometimes 4th) year at university, for their first degree.

What is an Essay?

An essay is a piece of writing that demonstrates to a tutor, teacher, lecturer or professor that you have studied a particular subject and that you understand it. So two points are essential:

  • Demonstrating that you have studied the subject. This is done by using and referencing appropriate material.
  • Demonstrating your understanding. This is done by evalutating, critiquing and commenting on the issues.

Never assume that the reader knows what is in your mind. Everything should be spelt out on paper. Neither should you assume that anything is ‘common knowledge’. All ideas, concepts, facts, figures, events, quotes etc should be referenced by source material.

It is possible that the tutor won’t give you a specific structure for the essay. In the absence of any clues in the instructions, you can assume they want a traditional essay with a introduction, body and conclusion.
