Students - your email grammar says something about you

Students - everyone else will be trying to get ahead of you. If not now - in uni - for sure once you leave. This is no longer the game where you get a prize just for playing.

Don't let other people score a free kick on you. Every piece of communication says something about how professional you are. Even if it's sent from a phone or posted to Facebook.

What do you think a person is likely to think about you if you send them this email:

"I am in a 4pm Monday tutorial, i have no attended yet as i have been unwell. i was looking to send my tutor an email regarding my absents..."

Sure, I'm just a lecturer in your first year Uni course but do you really want to be the person who sent that email? If you choose to be then that's fine, but don't be surprised when your friends are enjoying success you don't for some inexplicable reason...
