Abstract for short report on what you want from uni

Postby sarahbuts03 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 5:40 pm

Hello all!

I am starting my short report about what I want from Uni.
Am pretty clear in my head about the fomat, but have never written an abstract before and not quite sure where to start with it. I know the course materials say its 'a complete summary of key info'
but in regards to this report I'm stuck as to what specifically I need to write about here.

Hope someone can help, am gonna start on my title page till I get some feedback, least I know I can do that lol!

many thanks :D

Hi... I hope the following will give you some ideas...

Look at your format to see what you are going to write about in each section and then try and convert into a summary.

For example, in my report I explored why I wanted a change in career, what qualifications I would need, my requirements for a HE institution and comparison of my shortlist. I developed my abstract based on these ideas. Try writing just a couple of sentences to summarise the key information on each section and link them together. I'll pm you an example... I know what it's like when you want to get started!
