Example Text. There are a number of good dissertation examples presented in Canvas. You will notice that they have different styles. This template presents an example of hoe you could organise your dissertation. Please remove all instruction text from your final version.

This document uses automatic numbering, captioning and cross referencing in word (It is recommended to learn how to do this for the general production of documents, if you select text, you may notice some automatic fields are highlighted by grey, you may need to “update fields” in word to get the numbers to automatically update on occasion).

1.1        Example Subheading

 

Example Text. See Example Figure 1 (In Word recommend use of automatic cross referencing: References -> Cross-Reference -> Figure -> Only Label and Number)

1.2        Aim:

This should be clearly stated in your Introduction

 

1.3        Objectives

These should be clearly stated in your Introduction….

….and you should state how you met your objectives in your conclusion section.

 

 

 

Start section on a new page.

This section contains a CRITICAL assessment of the current literature in the topic area. Critical assessment is a skill at Masters level and will be expected.

2.2        Conclusion to Literature (optional)

Good to round this chapter up with something like a conclusion to the literature…

From the Literature it can be summarised that the gap in research is …. Thus I will look at that…

 

 

Start section on a new page.

This section contains a CRITICAL assessment of the current research methodologies that you could apply for this topic area.

You should prove that you know how to choose the appropriate methodology. The appropriate choice is a skill. An understanding of methodologies and rational (justification) as to your choice of methodology is a key skill at Masters level and will be expected. Thus explain what methodologies you could have chosen and explain why you chose the methodologies that you chose.

You may wish to consider including a research plan…

Don’t forget to mention that you followed the UoB Ethical Guidelines (and cite the reference to the UoB ethical review web page…).

 

 

 

Start section on a new page.

It is important to present your data in a clear way.

Charts, Tables, Figures, Pictures should all be cited explicitly in your text (e.g.  have an explicit reference like “See Figure 1”).

Analysis and Discussion is required.

There are many ways to organise this section.

You may use individual or combined subsections to do this.

4.1        Results

Example Text. See Table 1 as an example of a table (In Word recommend use of automatic cross referencing: References -> Cross-Reference -> Table -> Only Label and Number)

Table 1 An example Table (In Word recommend use of automatic caption numbering: References -> Insert Caption -> Table).

 

4.2        Analysis

Example Text.

Separate analysis chapter

4.3        Discussion

Example Text.

Separate discussion chapter

4.4        Analysis and Discussion

You may prefer to combine sections of results / analysis / discussion.

Or may wish to break up this section into themes and provide results / analysis / discussion for each.

Include references to other Literature to “confirm” or “contrast” with your results.

 

4.5        Recommendations

 

You may wish to conclude this chapter with some recommendations.

 

 

 

Start section on a new page.

This is a short summary chapter where you generally prove that you have met your objectives in the Introduction Section

 

For example list how specifically each of your objectives was or was not met..

 

This does not present any new information (as it is a conclusion…)

 

 

 

5.1        Limitations

 

Explain in what context your results may be applied. Advise on limitations (not time Limitation or Word Count) do mention but in terms of the applicability (e.g. “applies only to the company investigated”, “or application beyond the company investigated… because..”).

Also do not undermine your work by saying “it wasn’t really great” / “there was not enough time” etc.

 

5.2        Further Work

 

Suggest how you work may be progressed (extended) to improve or refine it.

Raw data should be presented in the appendices, including Interview Transcript(s) and a table of unprocessed questionnaire data.

Do NOT attach any consent forms OR project meeting records to this report. Those items should be uploaded into Canvas.

This may be very long, but it is important that we can confirm you can process data correctly.

7.1        Raw Data

If you have lots of raw data, you can present it here, and summarise key points in your Results etc. section.

 

7.2        Interview Transcripts

If you have undertaken interviews, you should present full transcripts here and summarise key points in your Results etc. section.

 

 

7.3        Questionnaire results

If you have undertaken questionnaires, you should present full questionnaire results here and summarise key points in your Results etc. section.

You may use a very small (but readable) font and a large table to do this (it can be tens of pages).

 

 

Do NOT attach any Project Meeting Forms, OR Ethical Forms to this dissertation document. All such forms should be uploaded in Canvas.
