The expected length of the full dissertation is 15,000 words of what is called body-text, meaning the text of the dissertation not counting the abstract, list of references and/or bibliography (there is actually a technical difference between these two things noted below). The body-text does not include the abstract, bibliographic entries, figure captions, tables, lists of abbreviations, appendices or any declarations or acknowledgements. The figure of 15,000 is approximate, and students need not make exceptional accommodations to fit the dissertation precisely into 15,000 words. The guidelines state that a 10% leeway from the suggested figure will be acceptable


100 – 500 words. See format shown 

Table of Contents

Glossary (optional) 

If a dissertation contains unfamiliar abbreviations or technical terms it is helpful to include a glossary at this point. 

Body of Work

Usually presented as a series of chapters 

A conventional form, suitable for many dissertations might be:

· Introduction

· Aims and Objectives

· Literature Review

· Methodology

· Results

· Conclusions

Although all these elements must be present in every ‘body of work’ it is not essential that they are presented either under those headings or, necessarily, in that order. It will very much depend on your subject and your approach End Material

End material should include:

References: Citations of specific works referred to directly in the text. Make sure you use a conventional referencing system – Harvard or British Standard – for example, see the University Publication Getting it Right! viewable on the MD4801 BlackBoard page.

Bibliography: List of additional material consulted, but not directly cited in the text. Use Harvard system for this.

Appendices: (optional) charts, graphs, additional data, photographs, videos, maps, sample instruments etc which support the text, but are sufficiently marginal not to be included in the body of the work. Appendices are usually labelled alphabetically, although if there is little such material and it is all of a similar nature, it may all be included in one appendix. 

It is not acceptable to insert photocopies of tables into the body of the dissertation. Tables should be word processed into the text. Generally this also applies to diagrams – no photocopies or scans from books. There may be occasions where photocopies are appropriate – to illustrate original historical material, or advertisements under discussion in the text, for example
