At university you will need to complete a number of written assessments for each of your subjects. These all come with a 'due date', which can make the submission of your work seem like an event. However, the completion of good academic writing, which meets the expectations of your lecturers, is a process.
Good academic writing is well-structured, logical and cohesive, supported by evidence and properly referenced, while also fulfilling the specific subject content requirements of each individual assessment.
