What is a Dissertation?

• The time to write a dissertation would depend on the educational system of the country where you are taking up your course.
• For example, in the United States, a dissertation is passed by someone who is taking a doctoral degree. It is a requirement for that person to get a PhD.
• In United Kingdom, it is passed by someone who is taking a master’s degree.
• Dissertation is the process of analyzing the data that you have gathered.
• You should read and evaluate all of your data carefully for you to come up with new conclusions.
• You must not deal with old facts in a dissertation. You should deal with the latest discoveries in your field.

What is a Thesis?

• Like the terms with a dissertation, the time to write it would depend on the educational system of the country where you are taking up your course.
• In the United States, it is passed by someone who is taking a master’s degree.
• In United Kingdom, it is passed by someone who is taking a doctoral degree and who is already in his or her last 2 years of being a student.
• A thesis can either get you a scholarship or promote you to a higher degree if you are studying in a different country.
• In other nations, a thesis is not needed to be done by someone who is taking a master’s degree.
• It involves original research which is required to be done by the student.
• A thesis should be about the conducted research alone.
• It should have a hypothesis that has never been formulated before for it to pass the standards of a certain professor.
• It puts emphasis on your main argument.
