Dissertations and extended essays look like longer versions of the sorts of assignment you have become used to. An extended essay can be 5000 words or more and undergraduate dissertations 10,000 to 15,000 words typically. They also have another unusual feature, which is that you generally have some choice in the topic. This might be that you choose from a list or that you are given free choice subject to tutor approval. The combination of these two factors can be very good or very bad depending on the way they are approached, and so there are a number of things that need to be considered carefully.
