Words in illustrative material presented within the main body of the text should be included in the word count (added manually if necessary). Acknowledgements It is not compulsory to include a list of acknowledgements but it is common practice to do so.Students may wish to acknowledge the part their Supervisor has played in assisting them in the preparation of the Dissertation, as well as others such as family members who have helped in the production of the Dissertation.Copies produced by xerographic or comparable permanent processes are acceptable.
Dissertation abstract writing is a specialist skill that requires a different sort of writing.
Because the word count is so small, it is important to know exactly how to summarize your dissertation while ensuring it still makes sense and that your results are discussed at length.
Wherever practicable such illustrative matter should have a binding margin of at least 40 mm and, if possible, be bound in the Dissertation near the appropriate text.
Material that cannot conveniently be bound in the Dissertation should be included in a pocket inside the back cover.
Published documents are always the most recent version and are applicable to the current academic year (unless otherwise stated).
If you require a previous version of a document please contact the responsible department.
Supplementary material submitted on CD/ DVD, USB, or other format, also cannot be returned. Indicative length The main body of the Dissertation must not exceed the word limit.
The word count must include everything within the main text of the Dissertation: this includes the abstract and contents page, lists of tables and illustrative material, and any tables, diagrams, subtitles, and footnotes and references which are included within the main text.
