Writing Resources

As a university student, you will be required to do a range of writing, which will vary depending on your faculty and the degree you are pursuing. When your professor gives an assignment, you will first need to determine the type of project it is or the genre of writing you are required to write in. Knowing this will help you plan and research your project effectively without spending time finding sources that do not suit the scope of your essay.

The following resources offer more detail about some of the more common types of assignments at UBC, but please always ask your professor or a TA if you have questions about a specific assignment.
