Your assignment must strike a balance between theory and practice. Description should be limited to what is absolutely necessary to emphasise a point of view or make your analysis clear. Similarly, you should not simply regurgitate theories in your assignment with no practical application of them. You should show due diligence in writing your assignment to ensure that it reflects the highest standard of presentation.
Other key considerations
• Your assignment must include a cover page with title, student name and number, date, word count, and contents page with page numbers.
• The Introduction in your assignment should cover the background, the issues and the aim of the investigation.
• Your assignment must use good quality sources (academic material or credible news sources, up to date and relevant to the topic) and correctly referenced using the Harvard system.
