ii) Structure – Begin your essay with a thesis statement – one or two
sentences that condense the argument or analysis to follow. (e.g.
Lobbying created benefits for businesses for X reasons, specifically
… Or e.g. In retrospect, it was not in the best interest for Eastern
European member states to join the EU because …). The thesis
statement is then followed by an introduction, which outlines both
the essay’s structure and the main points for discussion. The body
of the essay is where arguments should be developed, and proved
or disproved according to the evidence. Be sure the discussion here
is relevant to the topic at hand. Finally, summarize key points made
throughout the essay and highlight any conclusions to be drawn.
iii) Argument and Content – The argument refers to the ‘point of view’
to be discussed. It should be captured by the thesis statement. The
argument or point of view should be clearly developed throughout
the essay, and supported by the evidence and analyses.
iv) Supportive Evidence – You must use evidence – relevant and
reliable information, figures and/or examples (e.g. pertaining to
countries, industries or businesses) – to support your argument and
the claims made.
v) Referencing – Use the appropriate reading materials – articles
(academic and non-academic articles), books, reports etc. – to back
up your argument(s). Regardless of whether or not a work is quoted
from directly or indirectly, all work cited in the BODY of the
submitted piece of work must have the author’s name and date
published in parentheses following the citation (e.g. Jones and
Smith, 2005; or Johnson, 2010). If the work is quoted from directly, 7
page numbers must also be included. Work cited must be listed at
the end of the essay in a section titled ‘References’. Please use the
Harvard Style of referencing here. References must be listed in
alphabetical order, and written up consistently and accurately. Also,
the essay must be an original piece of work and students should not
be working together. Plagiarising the work of others, or work
produced by the individual student for another project, will result in
a mark of ZERO.
vi) Style and Presentation – Essays should be double-spaced. Be sure
the essay is well structured and contains accurate spelling and
grammar. Sections of the essay should be highlighted with the
appropriate headings. Headings should describe the issue(s) to be
discussed. Also, please note that signposting is very important. In
essays this is where you signal to the reader, at the beginning of
each section, the direction you will take (the structure you will adopt
– e.g. this section discusses three key reasons why lobbying is
beneficial for European business, including …).
