For some people the dissertation can be the culmination of your degree work and this can be a daunting prospect. But planning, organising and researching NOW can make all the difference in achieving your goal and with less stress. The Education Drop-in Centres (EDIC) can help you to prepare for your dissertation and provide ongoing support.
The dissertation is your chance to focus on an area that interests you, so ensure you spend your time wisely. From the early stages of planning and discussing ideas, helping you to refine your proposal, leading you through the process of focusing your ideas and content, and assisting with the structure and layout of the dissertation itself. There will be the opportunity to receive ongoing support as you develop your work and bring it to its conclusion.
The suitability of the topic is something that you will need to discuss with your supervisor as well as any concerns you may have about the subject matter. However, our tutors are available to support you with one-to-one tutorials, and further guidance can be found through the handouts in our centres and our Self Help page where you will find Handouts, interactive Study Guides and Useful Links within each of our subject areas: Study Skills, Maths & Stats, Welsh and IT.
