Um, not as far as I'm aware. Though you'll doubtless have to do that at some stage during your degree.

No, it's a long essay. 10,000 words is around the minimum number I think, though dissertations for some subjects are much longer.

You usually need to pass it to get an honours degree. If not, you get a degree without honours.

Not necessarily, I don't think. I wouldn't worry too much if I were you, it seems like a lot of academics themselves hate public speaking, so those ones can't expect too much from others. Plus it seems generally acceptable to just type out a speech and read it out.

Mine is included in my final year project which involves:

The creation of an advanced web application which makes use of object oriented programming and databases.

Planning, project management, turning up and aranging meetings with supervisors.

Submission of a 2000 word progress report plus initial designs (mine was 80 pages long)

Submission of the disertation which must be 10,000 words plus diagrams etc.

I then have to deliver a presentation in front of loads of people, I have done so many presentations at university its not really a problem for me though.

Haha, I can't believe you're doing a psychology degree yet can't speak in front of people. How the hell do you expect to get a job?!!!
