Important steps to take when writing a diploma or bachelor thesis


  • Write a topic you are convenient with; that implies your topic must be within your comfort zone. How do you identify your comfort zone? This is easy- check you course modules and the subjects or courses at which you performed above average can be your comfort zone. In case you are confused about locating your comfort zone- simply identify which topics or research topics you like or have an intense passion for.
  • Read literatures, journals related to your research field in order to identify what topic to choose or write your bachelor thesis on. This is important in order to write a unique thesis and not just a re-write or copy of what has been researched previously.
  • Gather a list of bibliography while reading because it makes it easy for you to trackback what sources you have consulted.
  • Also, once you have knowledge of the topic, read latest journals or research related to the journal and outlines the gaps in such journals.
  • From these gaps, you can write your introduction chapter. The gaps might be further explored in your literature review in case your thesis needs a literature review.
  • In case your thesis would accommodate a literature review, the knowledge accumulated doing reading extensively would come in hand. Your literature review must be precise, straight to the point, having logical as well as strong arguments which are all coherent. You should also make sure that you explore the gaps in recent literatures and point out how your research would fill those gaps or how different your research would be from previous research work.
  • Think very well before you choose your methodology, such variables as time, availability of funds, how to get respective respondents or data, your level of proficiency/expertise when it comes to qualitative or quantitative research methods. Whatever methodology you choose to use, make sure that you are certain of implementing it.
  • Your research findings form a part of your research, so all the data collected must be interpreted or analyzed in a way that the reader would understand it.
  • Make sure you write a conclusion/ recommendation based on the research findings or what has been noticed during the research. Do not extend your chapter 1, 2 , 3 or 4 into the conclusion. Gather all
  • Read your thesis several times and make sure you use a thesis editing service.
