The IOE Dissertation Support Project (IDSP) offers free supportive sessions in dissertation writing in educational research, aimed to inform and help students improve their own dissertation progress.

Following on from the earlier session on how to approach the dissertation, this talk will offer advice on how to manage the demanding task of writing the project. Using practical activities, various aspects of academic writing will be looked at, from building an overall argument and structuring individual paragraphs to the challenges of writing academically in English.

The session will conclude with tips on editing and proofreading your work, an essential part of the dissertation that is relevant to not only people for whom English is not a first language, but equally first-language speakers.
