Q. What is an essay?


An essay is a piece of text with several paragraphs. Unless otherwise specified in your assignment instructions, the essay has one overarching topic.

Essential parts of an essay are:

  • An introductory paragraph
  • Body paragraphs
  • A concluding paragraph

At university, you’ll be asked to write academic essays in the form of a process essay, a cause/effect essay, a comparison/contrast essay, an argumentative essay, or a combination of these. Most often, essays do not have headings.
