Why would someone write a thesis

Writing a thesis is like a frantic race towards the end of a long marathon: it boosts your well-deserved pace. In theory, at least. Because in practice, it turns out that a thesis is often a stumbling block for students. Sometimes students have no idea what is expected of them, and it is increasingly common for them to seek (paid) help from a thesis agency.

Why do students have these problems with the final thesis? Amos van Gelderen, professor of languages ​​at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, notes two things. First, degree programs don’t just teach their students how to write a thesis. After more than three years, all you have to do is start writing it. In addition, the requirements for theses established by the programs are often vague and abstract.

Case study: thesis at ESEI

One of our students, Rodrigo Ramos Sampaio, who studied international relations and international trade, defended his thesis two weeks ago. He chose to focus on sustainability and entitled it Towards a Green Future: An Analysis of Supply Chain Sustainability in the European Union Soy Products Industry.

We asked him about the thesis process, from concept creation to completion, and what he thought of the experience.

Thesis vs. Dissertation: Differences

  1. The main difference between a thesis and a dissertation is the time it takes to complete them. As mentioned above, a thesis is submitted at the end of a master’s program, but, just like a thesis is submitted for a Ph.D.
  2. A thesis is a body of research that ensures that the researcher has knowledge and knowledge about the research topic studied in the degree program. On the other hand, a thesis allows the researcher to add new theories and information to the existing literature in the field of research.
  3. A thesis is a presentation of existing and learned information, and the purpose of a thesis is to develop and defend a unique concept based on theoretical and practical results.
  4. A master’s thesis has around 100 pages. However, a doctoral dissertation must be much longer than a dissertation and must include background information and research information. A thesis should include your research proposal, grant proposal, literature review, idea for a research topic, and all other minute details of your research. Ideally, a thesis that includes all the details mentioned above should be three times as long as a master’s thesis.
  1. The thesis and dissertation are considered a capstone project and are required for graduation from individual programs.
  2. Both a thesis and a dissertation require a deep and precise understanding of the research problem.
  3. Both types of academic writing must answer specific research questions.
  4. Academic writing skills are essential for a thesis and also for a thesis.
  5. Ethical practices must be followed when collecting and recording research data.
  6. Plagiarism is also not acceptable.
  7. Both require analytical skills to support decisions.
  8. Both theses and dissertations require intensive editing and critical review before final submission.

Reason 3: You might get caught.

The biggest mistake we see among students considering using a thesis or dissertation writing service is that they really think they won’t get caught.

“But my writer has a PhD.”
