    • How to write western style essays

      As a foreigner abroad there were many things I wished I had learned in depth before starting university,and one of them is writing a great Western style essay. When I say western style, I mean in the sense off knowing the best writing method to use,the type of vocabulary that can be used to make the essay more clear and concise for the marker. There are a number of books and websites out there that on how to write an essay but none of them go into depth to help students on how to successfully write a remarkable western style…

            • Brain Food

              Especially in exam period I often find myself in the library late at night. At this time of day, all the shops where I could purchase a quick non-sugary snack are closed. I suggest the addition of items such as granola bars in the library vending machines so I don't have to feel so guilty having some brain food at 11pm!

              • Enhance my CV

                Students (internally authenticated) can submit their CVs. The CVs are displayed with nice graphical previews so that people can see them and then other students can volunteer to fix them up.
