Our essay examples include a number of features to help you decide if a particular essay is right for you – before you even sign up! Use these features to help you locate the perfect essay example to inspire your own writing.
Although you can browse through our essays by subject area, our search facility is the best way to find what you are looking for. Simply type in a few search terms relating to what you are studying and browse through the results to find the essays most relevant to your topic.
Every essay has a 150 word snippet on the category and search pages, and a full 400 word extract on the individual essay page. This generous preview, alongside our other features, will help you decide if the essay is likely to be useful to you. Once you’ve signed up, you will of course be able to see the full essay on the single essay page.
If the essay, dissertation or piece of coursework has been checked and confirmed to have a bibliography, you will see this displayed underneath the essay title on the single essay page:
Some essays/dissertations DON’T have this symbol but DO have bibliographies or reference lists. This is because all of our content is user-generated and it can therefore take some time to check through it. If the essay you are interested in doesn’t have the bibliography icon and you’d like to know if it has a bibliography or references before you subscribe, just email our support team and we’d be happy to check the essay for you.
All essays have the word count displayed on the single essay page:
This word count is approximate but will be correct to 2 or 3 words. The word count helps you decide if the essay example you have found contains sufficient detail for your studies.
Sometimes longer pieces contain appendices which can inflate the word count. If you have any questions about a particular essay, dissertation or piece of coursework before you subscribe, simply get in touch with our support team and we would be pleased to help you.
All of our essays, dissertations and coursework can be rated by you, the user, out of 5:
