  • What is a term thesis?
A thesis is also referred to as a dissertation and is a major project undertaken either in the final year of university or college or as part of a post graduate degree such as a masters or pHD. It is called a 'term' thesis because students are usually given a few months or a whole term to complete the project. It is a major piece of work and the grade given to the thesis will contribute a significant percentage to the student's overall mark.
The student is usually free to choose their own topic for the thesis and will base it on an area of the course that they have found particularly interesting and enjoyable. They may choose to research something they have studied that they feel could use more research or information or an area where the findings need to be updated or modified.
The student will often be assigned to one teacher or lecturer who they can go to for help and support but the majority of the project will be worked on alone. One of the reasons for doing the project is to prove that the student has the ability to work alone and work to deadlines. A term thesis is often the first opportunity a student has to work alone on a project without the involvement of teachers so it gives them the chance to prove themselves and specialize in an area of their course that was of particular interest. This could help them when they come to further their education or career.
