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.
