The introduction plays a crucial role in any assignment; it’s here that you contextualise the assignment for your reader and clearly outline its purpose. Getting this right sets you, and your reader, on the right path. This webinar will guide you through the process of writing an effective introduction for any academic assignment. In particular, we’ll consider how to structure an introduction, how to engage your reader from the start and what characteristics your markers will be looking for.
