Succeeding with your Master’s Dissertation - A step-by-step handbook
Dissertations have always been a problematic area for students. Students registered for a taught Master’s programme not only have to cope with their
core subject areas, but they are also required, largely through independent study, and within tight time constraints, to complete a substantial dissertation
project. Students registered for a Master’s by research, although they have no taught element to contend with, often find the dissertation process equally
stressful. For many Master’s students, their venture into the world of the dissertation becomes nothing short of a guessing-game, where the tasks to be
completed are difficult to comprehend, and where the final mark awarded for their efforts is even trickier to fathom. Students are aware that they have to
write an Introduction, but they are not really sure how to go about it; they sort of know that they have to complete something called a Literature Review, but
they are at a loss where to start or what it ought to contain, or what will get them good marks; the section on Research Methods (necessary if students are
implementing their own practical research work to complement their Literature Review) seems so abstract to them, and concepts such as ‘positivism’ and
‘phenomenology’, so revered by their tutors, do not help matters; and so on.
