Finding dissertations and theses

Researching similar dissertations is not only a way to ensure that you will be contributing original research to the field, but also a great way to see examples of how other students conducted a literature review and used a particular research methodology. Additionally, you can potentially identify a particular test instrument or theoretical framework appropriate for your study, as well as discover scholarly research articles that you may not have come across in your own research.


Planning and writing your dissertation or extended project

Skills for Study is based on the work of expert Stella Cottrell, international bestselling author of The Study Skills Handbook. Skills for Study uses the best of e-learning technology and the advantages of an interactive platform to engage and develop academic skills.
