You want to improve your skill,  achieve your potential and get the grade you desire and deserve.

You value your education and you're ready to invest in yourself, your skills and your future.

You want to use the fastest and best essay writing methods which are proven to work, instead of learning outdated techniques from other students (or Pinterest).

You want a comprehensive system you can follow step-by-step to get great results every time.

You are prepared to show up, do the work and practice your essay writing skills until you master them. Knowledge without action is useless

I understand because I've been there...

When I started University I didn't expect it to be so different from A-levels. It couldn't be that hard, right?

Wrong!

I didn't know what I was meant to do, how to do it or whether anyone else felt the same. Writing essays was a total mystery. I never knew what marks I'd get back, so I lived under constant stress.

I kept my worries to myself and tried to ignore the sick feeling growing inside me. But it didn't go away. I got so anxious about completing assignments I suffered a panic attack at the end of my first year and wanted to quit.

That's why this isn't just another study course

I didn't quit. I turned my summer vacation into a study experiment. I tested what worked and what didn't. I researched study skills. And then I practiced. A lot!

I graduated in 1994 and later went on to study for my MBA, Ph.D and a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education. But I'm not a special case. I've taught writing and research skills to hundreds of people. With the right knowledge, applied in the right order and practice, I believe anyone can improve their essay results. It's a skill ANYONE can learn.

In University Essays you will learn a step by step process for planning, researching and writing essays which is designed to get you fast results from day one. Over time, as you practice these skills, you'll get even stronger results.

You'll get straight into action using video tutorials, workbooks and checklists to makeover your MINDSET, implement the best METHODS, and MASTER the skills you need. University Essays is applied to your real essays so it will SAVE you time too. You will get massive value from the first essay you write. Plus, you can use it again and again with every assignment you need to complete. It will repay your investment many times over.

University Essays: the course is as simple and straightforward as its name!

It's the course I wish I'd had when I first went to University.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Why is there a special price now?

I've created a special price because I want to help the maximum number of students this Autumn. I also want to reward those people who take action fast!

The price will increase from £97 to £147 on 8 December 2017. Students purchasing beyond 2017 will get a self-study option only without the group coaching.

+ What is included when I enroll?

The four-week Essay Writing course goes live on 18 December 2017 when you will get access to Module 1 - Mindset and Motivation and Module 2 - Plan and Prepare (week 1). Modules 3 - Research and Write will be released seven days later (week 2) and Module 4 - Improve and Redraft after a further 7 days (week 3). Module 5 - Review and Submit and Module 6 - When You Recieve Your Marks will both be realised seven days after that (week 4). Throughout this time you will have access to the private coaching group for support from myself and cother students taking the course.

+ When does the course start and finish?

The four-week course begins on 18 December 2017 and runs until 14 January 2018, however you will have access to the material forever! You can use the system contained in the course for EVERY essay you write. It will pay back your investment over and over again!

+ Can I take this course at my own pace?

Yes! This course is suitable to complete at your own pace. You will have access to the modules beginning on 18 December 2017 and you will complete the course with other students over the following four weeks. But if you prefer to do the work at your own pace then that's fine too. You have lifetime access to the materials so you can learn and return anytime you want!

+ How long do I have access to the course

Forever! After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. You'll also get any updates or additons to the programme I make in future - for no extra cost. How's that for great value?

+ How is this different from what I can find for free on Youtube or Pinterest?

Great question! Youtube and Pinterest has a number of tutorials on how to get high marks at University and how to study. But these tutorials are mainly created by students and may be sharing unproven, outdated or incomplete methods. Just because something worked for them does not mean it is correct or will work for you. They are also often put together my students from outside the UK and so much of the information they share simply does not apply and will confuse you even more.

This course is based on my experience as an Assistant Professor, researcher and teacher in University Higher Education. Plus, I have extensive experience as a professional writer and communication training specialist for organisations such as Waitrose, Rolls-Royce and the NHS.

I’m showing you methods which are proven by research and teaching you how to resaerch and write your essays in an organised, effective and efficient way. I've also created the Masterclass and the six modules of the course to complement one another so you will have the whole picture instead of wondering how to put it all together. There is simply no other course out there like this.

+ How quickly will I see results?


As fast as you want them! Results will differ from person to person, depending on:

  • the level of ability you already have
  • the amount of effort you put in
  • the amount of time you spend practicing
  • how much you feel motivated to improve

Most students will see an improvement in their study skills quickly if they follow the tutorials and TAKE ACTION! The more you practice the skills the faster your marks will improve. Practice is the key!

+ Is the programme worth the investment?

The short answer is YES! University fees are costly and it goes without saying you want to get the best possible outcome. Your degree result will also directly impact your starting salary after Uni AND your long term career trajectory. You simply CANNOT afford to mess up.

With University Essays you will know the best methods to research, write and improve your essays. Plus in this round of University Essays (Autumn '17) you'll get personalised direction and feedback from myself AND your StudyBuddies in the private group. All the guesswork is taken out of learning university essay study skills.

You'll never be left alone to figure things out yourself. You'll have more success and faster. The confidence boost this will give you is PRICELESS! All for less than the cost of a seeing a live concert or a big night out.

Seriously, YOU are worth the investment.

+ What else do I need?

You'll need a working computer and internet access. The course is made up of online resources (videos and downloads) so you can work anywhere you have wifi!

I refer to a few apps in the course such as Asana and Grammarly - most have a free version and a premium version. In most cases, you'll get by with the free version unless you want to upgrade.

I also make reference to some stationary and office items. I share my personal favourites and you'll find alteranatives to suit any budget in any office supplies store or online. Most are necessities you'd need to buy for Uni anyway. Those cute washi tapes and MUJI pens? Optional :)

+ I have friends who would benefit from taking the course too. What should I do?

I have a generous affiliate programme, so if you would like to recommend the course to a friend after you've purchased it, email hello@joinedupwriting.online and I will set you up with a personalised link. Where else can you help your friends excel at uni and be rewarded for it? Sharing really is caring.

+ I have a student blog and want to share this offer with my readers. What should I do?

The affiliate route is the one to take if you have your own blog and would like to promote the course to your readers. Simply purchase your own acess to the course and contact hello@joinedupwriting.online and I'll do the rest. It's the perfect way to provide value for your readers and make effortless income from your blog. Happy days :)

+ How difficult is University Everything?

If you are smart enough to be offered a place at University, you are smart enough to complete the programme! In fact, you'll find this programme far more straightforward than many university courses. It's a complete system with each module designed to take you step-by-step through exactly what you need to do. And you will also find plenty to stretch you if you are an improver rater than a complete beginner. It's a programme that grows as you do, continually challenging you to do better.

+ Is University Everything suitable for someone studying MY degree?

If your degree contains regular essay writing or is assessed by essays then this course is suitable for you! Students from courses as diverse as Archaeology and Youth Studies (I'm still waiting for a Zoologist!) have improved their results with these methods.

+ I don't have time to go through this course

I’ve been there! The reality is that making a positive change takes commitment and time. If you want to stop feeling like an overwhelmed, hot mess and start feeling like you have it all together, then you’re going to need to dedicate time to going through the course and implementing the strategies and teachings.

The good news is that I created this course with busy students in mind! It is easy to digest, easy to watch, and only contains what you need. No filler. You’re going to learn exactly what you need to know and I’m going to teach it to you as efficiently as possible. No more wasted time searching on pinterest for blog posts and watching videos that don’t help you make an impprovement.

+ I seem to be getting by okay on my own

I’m so glad to hear that! Does your approach help you feel confident? Do you have certainty that you'll get the result you expect each time? Do you feel you're getting the grades you desire and deserve? If so, then get off this sales page and get back to studying! ;) If, however, you’re feeling like you have gaps in your system, inconsisistent marks, or feel like you aren't fulfilling your potential aka. 'absolutely killing it', then this course sounds perfect for you!

+ What if I change my mind and want a refund?

Due to the instant access nature of the course, there are no refunds. But do not worry that you'll find yourself stuck or left on your own. I will go all out to get you unstuck and the results you want. Just ask your questions in the group or if it's complicated then email hello@joinedupwriting.online and I'll do my best to help you however I can!
