Event description

Description

Please sign up using your CRSId and your Cambridge email, as only current Jesus students will be admitted to the session.

Jesus College provides a programme across the academic year to help our current students improve their academic skills. The idea is to help make the transition from secondary education to university studies go as smoothly as possible and to encourage all students to fulfill their potential while here at Cambridge. While designed for undergraduate freshers, those in other years and graduate students may also benefit from the programme, and are most welcome to attend any of the sessions if there is space available.

We have arranged a series of practical sessions on writing, study and examination skills throughout the academic year. Attendance at these sessions is strongly recommended, but the places are limited. These sessions aim to improve and hone all aspects of your work here at Cambridge, which will prove invaluable later on.

This session considers how to structure essays to achieve the very highest results. It considers how to structure an argument effectively in both a term-time essay and under exam conditions, and what strategies you might deploy to develop your essays across your degree. This session is designed to be broad and non-disciplinary specific, and students may wish to build upon it in the discipline-streamed workshop sessions on writing held later in the term and in Lent.
