Dissertations usually fall into one of two main types;
- Research based i.e. you carry out a piece of original research as part of your study.
- Review or audit. This could be a detailed literature review perhaps combined with reflective practice and asking for recommendations to develop a new idea, procedure or policy.
Ensure you read your dissertation assignment brief carefully to see what you are expected to do.
