How to Write Your Dissertation in 5 Simple Steps?


If you’re thinking about writing your dissertation, you know the process can be daunting. It’s important to think carefully about what you want to say and why it matters—and then stick to those ideas as you write your final product. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start or how long it will take. In this blog, you’ll learn how to write a dissertation in 5 simple steps that will help turn your research into a finished product: 

Step 1: Choose a Topic

Before you write your dissertation, it is important to choose a topic. The first step in choosing a topic is to identify your areas of interest and decide which of those will be most relevant to your research. You might want to consider: 

  • Your supervisor’s research interests 
  • The field(s) you are studying at university or college (if relevant) 
  • The subject matter of your dissertation (if relevant) 

Step 2: Develop a Topic 

The first step in writing your dissertation is choosing a topic. 

It’s important to pick something that interests you, and one that can keep your attention for hours on end. If this sounds like a challenge, don’t worry—if it does not interest you at all, then there’s no point in picking something that doesn’t really interest you. You’ll only be wasting time and effort by doing so! 

For example: I chose “How to become the ultimate video game master.” That was my topic because I’m obsessed with video games (and they’re my favorite thing), but once again: if I had decided not to do this research project because it didn’t appeal to me personally, then all our work would have been wasted—I wouldn’t have gotten anything out of it at all! The best way forward here is always going after what makes sense for yourself personally so long as others might benefit from knowing about what happened during those years when we were growing up together…

Step 3: Create a Thesis Statement 

The first step in writing a dissertation is to define the problem you want to solve. This can be as simple as “I want to lose weight,” or as complex as “I want my students’ test scores on this course to increase by 5%.” In any case, make sure that when you write your thesis statement—the main point of what you’re trying to say—it’s clear and concise. 

If there are multiple problems related at once, try grouping them into smaller ones before moving on: “My goal is for all students taking this course who have taken it before me saw their test scores go up by 10% over three years.” 

Once you’ve defined what’s most important about your topic (or several), it’s time for Step 2: setting goals! 

Step 4: Work on your Thesis Statement 

The first step is to ensure that you thesis statement is clear and concise. It should be easy to understand but not too broad or narrow. It needs to be unbiased and general enough to apply to any topic or audience without being too specific (like “thesis”). 

For example: “In order for people with disabilities who want jobs in the workplace to succeed, we need more accessible workplaces.” This might sound obvious, but if you’re writing about disability rights for people with disabilities, what kind of accessibility do you mean? Are there any laws against having stairs at work sites? Do employers need to provide ramps? Or are these things that would be nice if they were available elsewhere besides their offices (perhaps with less traffic)? In addition, how does this differ from other types of accessibility? Does it really matter if someone has access only through an elevator versus being able to walk safely around a building site without fear of falling down staircases? 

Step 5: Do Literature Review


The literature review is the heart of your dissertation, and it’s important to get this right. You’ll be writing about a topic that has been studied in many different ways—and you need to know which methods have been used by others, what their results were and what gaps they left open. 

The first step is to identify gaps in literature: These are areas where there’s not enough data available for you to make an informed decision about whether or not one method or another works best for your own research project. If there isn’t enough evidence about something like treatment effectiveness or side effects of medication use (for example), then don’t waste time looking at existing studies; instead focus on collecting more data yourself! 

Dissertation Writing

You can Write a Good Dissertation if you Follow These Steps: 

  • Write your dissertation by the requirements of your institution. These may be specific to the type of institution you are studying at, or they may be standard across all institutions in your field. If there are no specific requirements for what kind of research project you should do, then it is up to you how much time and effort goes into doing it right! 
  • If possible, get help from friends who have already completed similar projects so that they can offer some advice on how best to approach them (for example: “I had trouble finding good literature reviews because I didn’t know where else other people had done this kind of research”). 

If you follow these steps, your dissertation will be a success. All you need to do now is start writing! I hope this helps!
