Here is a guide compiled by the Library and Students Union to help you get started with your dissertation, final year project, or major study.
Use the links at the top of this page to see the various stages you may go through when working on your project. Depending on the nature of your project, some may be more relevant than others.
On each tab, you will find advice, guides, and resources you can use every step of the way.
Need a bit of help getting started? The Library runs regular online training sessions on literature searching, using Summon, referencing, and more.
For upcoming topics and dates, as well as recordings of previous events, see the Library Live website. All sessions are held online, in Microsoft Teams.
These sessions are open to anyone, but will be most helpful to students working on undergraduate or Masters dissertations. If you are a PhD student, please check SkillsForge for training aimed at postgraduate researchers.
For support with literature searching, using Summon and other library databases, referencing, and more, please contact the Library. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or book a one-to-one appointment online.
