Tips for writing Format and style 1. You should write in active voice. 2. Avoid informal words, colloquial language in writing. 3. Avoid contractions (Can’t/don’t is wrong, use can not, do not). 4. Explain your abbreviations first before using them. For example- World Health Organisation (WHO) 5. Use British English. 6. Do not write in first person. (I think, I read, I believe etc.) 7. Please be careful with your spellings and punctuation marks. Poor grammar is poor writing and results in poor understanding and misleading. 8. The writing should be formal and should create a flow through linking sentences clearly. 9. Use clear and concise academic language in writing. 10. No anecdotal stories. 11. Try not to be too descriptive. You need to do a ‘critical analysis’. 12. Make sure the format of your essay is Calibri or Arial font, 12, The margins for each page are 2.54 cm (the default in MS Word) and the line spacing is double, and justified (right and left side of paragraphs is straight, like in a book or published report). 

Referencing 1. You MUST use Harvard Referencing system in your assignment 2. This should be for both in the body of the essay (citation) and references. Please signpost your references clearly and accurately in the body of the essay. 3. Use only academic peer-reviewed published articles, academic books, government websites or reliable international data sets from UN or other international agencies. 4. Avoid grey literature, non-academic articles. For example- google, blogs, newspapers, online opinions, non-validated data etc.
