5.3 Dissertation

The undergraduate dissertation is normally a 30-credit, final stage, level 3 module, which may be compulsory for some degree programmes. The subject of your dissertation will be agreed in advance and you will work under the direction of a nominated supervisor. Postgraduate dissertations are usually worth 60 credits.

The completed dissertation will be submitted for assessment, on a date specific to your degree programme, and this final assessment will comprise part of the overall assessment for your degree classification.

PGT Dissertations will normally be returned to students at graduation.
