Essay Structure

All academic essays follow a structure and there are many different kinds. You may be required to write a discursive essay where you have to present the arguments for and against an issue or perhaps a problem/solution essay where you outline a particular problem including its causes and effects and then present either one or a number of solutions and assess how effective they may or may not be. Whatever type of essay you have to write, there are certain standard features that can be found in most academic essays.
