Report writing


Read some reports

Look at examples of reports to see how they are laid out and written. Ask your tutor if there are examples of student reports which you could read.

If you are working in an organisation, you might have access to some internal reports which could be helpful. Or you could look at some published reports on different topics. Some of the items listed in ‘Further resources’, for example the Bradford University guide, contain sample reports.
