All undergraduate students must submit and pass a BA dissertation to complete the requirements of their degree otherwise they will not be able to graduate.
As part of their BA degree in Global and Development Studies, students are required to submit a dissertation of 12,000-14,000 words (including footnotes and references, but excluding appendices) on a topic of their choice, developed in consultation with a supervisor. The dissertation represents the culmination of undergraduate studies and it needs to be based on student's own work and analysis of various sources. The aim of the dissertation is to show that at the end of their degree, students have the capacity to think and work independently. The dissertation needs to be officialy defended in front of the Faculty Committee.
The dissertation should meet all required standards. The guidelines for the BA dissertation will be published soon.
