So we all dread the day of starting your dissertation, but the fact is with the right tutor, support and attitude, it can actually be stress-free and dare I say it... enjoyable! Check out top tips from BU graduate, Abigail Taylor here...
1. Choose a topic that interests you. Sometimes it is better to choose something you're not as familiar with as you will probably find it more interesting to research.
2. Start your dissertation as soon as possible, make an appointment with your tutor as soon as lecturers have been allocated. They will not contact you.
3. In your first meeting arrange to submit dissertation chapters around other modules. This way your dissertation won't interfere with other work.
4. Leave yourself two weeks after completion to make extra edits and get it bound. This will save you a lot of stress!
