How many (postgraduate) students forget how to write an essay?


Just me, I’m pretty sure.

This week, while starting an assignment, I was lost. L-O-S-T lost (at least I can spell).

There was a question – a pretty straightforward one at that – and I was stumped. Alright, I knew what I would say, but how? What do these terms mean? It says ‘discuss’ so, what words should I use? How am I to structure this essay? There were all these questions, and Google wasn’t giving me the answers that I wanted.

And then I discovered ‘L3’ – sure, it sounds pretty awesome and all, but what is L3?

L3 is the Language, Literacies and Learning resource for all UniSA students and can be accessed online, or through face-to-face support in the form of workshops and 1:1 teaching. How great is that? And simply with the click of a button, all L3 services are there for your perusal, depending on which UniSA division you belong to (EASS, Business, HSC etc.)

all the colours! all the resources!
all the colours! all the resources!

Once you choose your division, you’re taken to that particular division’s ‘homepage’ where a whole mountain of resources are available to you. Suck at referencing? We’ll show you how. Need some general information on studying at Uni? We’ve got you covered. Can’t write your essay? We’ll break it down for you in the simplest way.

I personally needed help with my essay, so I clicked on the ‘Assignments’ tab and it led me to a whole list of the types of assignments I might be faced with, relevant to my division of study! I used the ‘Essay writing’ resource which gave me detailed information on how to recognize the type of essay that you are to write, right down to how to spread your word count evenly so you get a well-balanced essay. It also gives you a checklist – so if you’re super on top of things, you can go through them after you’ve written your essay to make sure you’ve covered all aspects and are ready to race to that HD!

The important thing to remember, especially during crunch time (ie. NOW), is that help is ALWAYS available -either online, or via the Learning and Teaching Unit- all you need to do is ASK.

Happy studying/finishing up those last few assignments, guys!
