Know what you are aiming for

There is a reading list that gives details of a number of key texts that you should use to inform the development of your work. This can be found at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/is/gateway/readinglists/.

It is important to read previous dissertations. Particularly good examples from our Division are those written by students who have gained distinctions in previous years.

These are used in an exercise at the start of Semester 1 (Year 2 for part-timers) to help you to appreciate the nature of the dissertation work and give you the opportunity to critique an example.
