Check with your tutor or department whether you should be including recommendations in your dissertation or not.

If the dissertation provides information on an area for which future decisions will need to be made, then you should include recommendations on what decisions to make.

The recommendations:

  • use an evaluative writing approach
  • is positioned after the Conclusion
  • must be cross referenced to the part of the paper that gives evidence for them.
  • each recommendation should be numbered separately.

Remember:

Including a Recommendations section depends on purpose.

Always check with your tutor first.
