Microsoft Word Essential Skills

Use Word to create a basic format for academic essays which can be adapted to suit university guidelines and requirements.  The focus will be on developing appropriate page layouts including margins, line spacing, page breaks, automatic paragraph styles, headers, footers and pagination.
