For our final year students and masters’ students, that final piece of work is looming…

Our session will cover the structure and construction of a good dissertation.

Thursday 2nd February 12.00 noon – 1.00pm

Thursday 9th February 12.00 noon – 1.00pm

Staff Development Room 2nd Floor LINC

We will discuss the importance of specificity of topic and originality in your research work.  The structure of the dissertation, looking at introductions and conclusions; how to write them and what they should include.

The session will also consider what a literature review should and should not do and the importance and constitutional parts of the methodology chapter: such as sample, validity, limitations and ethics.  What the findings and discussion chapters should and should not do and how they fit within the overall structure of the dissertation.

The session aims to be an informal seminar where you can also bring your own work if you want to.  However, the session works in generalities, if you want specific 1 to 1 support for your dissertation, then please go to the Ask desk (1st Floor of the University Library) and request a dissertation 1 to 1 with me.  Every dissertation should be a unique piece of research so 1 to 1 sessions are the preferred method of support: however this session can provide a taster of the broad basic issues that every student needs to pull together their final year dissertation.

It’s easy to book, go to
