Learn About Dissertation Course

Dissertation course online. Self-paced Home Study – Distance Learning course.

Learn to write and present a good dissertation.

The purpose of the dissertation is to show that you are capable of writing and presenting in an academic manner, conduct research into the relevant academic literature and write about the research in a clear and precise way.

This module allows you, to engage in research on a topic that is of particular interest to you while also demonstrating not only your research, analytical and investigative skills, but also your ability to work independently with self-determination.

This module will require a substantial commitment. You will be engaged in independent research and required to submit substantial assignments leading up to the final work.

You will also have to verbally defend your research once it is completed in the form of a viva voce exam.

This module represents a very large commitment of time and effort and will result in a piece of original work. This module is not a workshop or a research project.

To complete your dissertation, you have to show your marker that you can:

  • Set a relevant title for your research.
  • Decide on aims for your research.
  • Carry out a background research relevant to your dissertation.
  • Summarise and clearly explain the research.
  • Discuss relevant points.
  • Argue relevant points related to your dissertation title.
  • Follow the correct format for the dissertation.
  • Write within the appropriate word limits.
  • Use academic language.
  • Write references.

Remember that this is an academic piece of writing. You may choose to study something practical eg. The Development of a Cottage Garden. That is a suitable title, but you must write academically about what is a cottage garden, the plants that are suitable, soil composition, garden designs and so on.
