Published on 19 March by Courtney Gahan. Revised on 14 August The dissertation acknowledgements section is where you thank those who have helped and supported you during the research and writing process. This includes both professional and personal acknowledgements. In a standard dissertation structure , the acknowledgements appear directly after the title page and before the abstract , and should usually be no longer than one page. The writing style for dissertation acknowledgements can be more informal, as this is not part of the academic work itself — it is your chance to write something more personal.
Words allow people to express how they really feel. There are words that greet us, make us laugh, make us angry, make us smile, make us confused, makes us sad and if the situation calls for it, make us feel appreciated. There are different ways people can take to let others feel appreciated.
Here are 14 dissertation acknowledgements examples to inspire you. They cover a range of academic subjects and are all from UK students. Note how they vary in length, style and substance.
