What constitute an excellent essay?

An excellent essay will have provided an in-depth analysis of carefully selected theoretical, empirical and/or policy documents using a suitable theoretical approach to tackle the chosen topic. Such an analysis should contain elements of originality, in the sense that the argument should be developed through the use of a combination of theory and empirical evidence or policy documents that should not have been already found in an existing study available in the literature. The student should therefore have consulted new references on her/his chosen theoretical approach (ideally beyond the references on that approach introduced in the module).
