The dissertation title is your first opportunity to let the reader know what your dissertation is about. With just a few words, the title has to highlight the purpose of the study, which can often include its context, outcomes, and important aspects of the research strategy adopted. But a poorly constructed title can also mislead the reader into thinking the study is about something it is not, confusing them from the very start.
In our articles on EXPECTATIONS and LEARNING, we explain what the reader expects and learns from your dissertation title, before setting out the major COMPONENTS that can be included in dissertation titles. Finally, since your dissertation title should follow a specific written style, which explains when to capitalise words, which words to capitalise, how to deal with quotation marks, abbreviations, numbers, and so forth, we provide some guidance in our article on STYLES.
These dissertations are available for current undergraduates to view here. They remain anonymous, as they were submitted anonymously.
The School nominates a number of undergraduate dissertations each year for UK-wide prizes. Nominated dissertations are included in this collection.
The dissertations are stored on Blackboard and arranged alphabetically by award title.
You can search for all print and electronic dissertations using the library search. Try searching for a particular title, author or topic.
