How To Write a Dissertation

Calling all our MA Students at Escape Studios! Skills You Need is a website you need to know about, with some great resources for our students tackling masters-level study.

Here at Escape Studios we specialise in practical, industry-relevant skills, but our master's degrees do included a significant academic component, and this includes writing a fully-referenced dissertation following standard academic requirements.

A dissertation
What is a dissertation? Essentially, it's a research document, typically around 8,000 to 10,000 words, written in support of a post-graduate degree.

It's generally the most daunting part of masters-level study, and a number of academic requirements must be met in order to secure a passing grade. 

The Skills You Need webpage offers very helpful advice on how to write a dissertation. It's pretty general advice, but it comes recommended by our academic team as a good starting point for your academic journey.
