Master's UK dissertation

A master’s level dissertation differs from other forms of writing, by the way that it attempts to analyze a situation in a much more focused and deeper sense. The motive of a dissertation is to provide an opportunity to understand a subject in depth. It also provides a platform to display the researchers’ ability to plan and execute a project, capability to independently investigate all possible perspectives of a situation and also the aptitude to combine theories and practices.

The dissertation should display the knowledge of the individual that lies much beyond that acquired in under graduation level or in class rooms. In addition to meeting the objectives of the dissertation, it is important that the dissertation should carry a style and a structured approach. Style does not restrict only to the grammar, citations and format but also includes validation of facts, justification of arguments and apt references.

Initially, every student is expected to formulate a research proposal which serves as an abstract to the dissertation to be prepared. The proposal should contain a title, an introduction, a literature review that the researcher is prepared to undertake the subject, a detailed methodology and a time chart for the completion of the project.

Once the proposal is accepted, the dissertation writing begins. Any dissertation begins with a title page followed by the abstract. The acknowledgements section is placed next, and the contents follows. This contains the list of all topics covered in the dissertation, indexed and sequenced in the right order.

The paper begins after the contents with the introduction. This section is responsible for drawing the attention of the reader and hence required much clarity. Introduction is followed by the literary review and then the research methodology. Data analysis, discussion and conclusion cover the major sections of the dissertation, with references and appendices forming a complete resourceful master’s dissertation.
