Hello, I am currently studying in my second year, and am supposed to be choosing whether to write a dissertation next year or undertake a major project.
Could someone please explain to me what these are and what the advantages are for each. We weren't explained exactly why we would be interested to undertake any.
From what I've understood the major project is a year long, 10,000 words dissertation (30 credits), while dissertation is 5,000 words and is only 15 credits for one semester. I am also aware that we can present these to our future employees, but am unsure. Could someone please clarify, THANK YOU!
Do they actually matter?
