It’s a 1,500 Word Essay topic for the course “Politics, Democracy,& Decision Making” Assessment brief: An essay is a piece of formal writing about a particular topic, usually responding to a question or a problem. The main task is to answer this puzzle by persuading the reader of your argument using evidence and research. Your writing should demonstrate that you have understood the question and should indicate knowledge of at least of one theory (but not more than 3) studied in this module, as well as a grasp of the purpose of theory. Topic: Explain the ways Brexit will change the UK’s position in the world. Structure of the essay: 1. An introduction (250 words), which must include: a. Explain the question, introduce why this question is important, and give some context to the question b. Your argument (this can be the answer to the question), clearly and explicitly stated. c. An outline of the different sections of your essay, clearly ‘signposting’ the rest of your essay. 2. Main body of text (1,000 words): this part should be organised coherently with clearly separated paragraphs (each paragraphs should be no longer than 200 words). You can organise your main body with 2-3 sections and subheadings. Each section should address the question and should demonstrate the validity of your argument. This should demonstrate research and bring evidence to your argument. 3. Conclusion (250 words): the conclusion should summarise the argument and the different sections of your main body of text. It should also draw on the implications of your argument. In other words, you should ask yourself: ‘and so what’? , ‘what does this argument mean for International Relations’? You should avoid adding new information or a new argument in your conclusion.
