THE DISSERTATION was an elective on the University of
Glamorgan Business School undergraduate programmes, yet
despite its strategic importance and focus on self-managed
study there was comparatively little support for students, the
emphasis appearing to be largely on its ‘student-directedness’.

while others insisting that the students themselves take
full ownership of the programme. Ensuring consistency of
standards across teaching practices in higher education is a
growing concern (Saunders and Davis, 1998). It was therefore
felt that a programme should be put in place to establish best
practice in respect of business dissertations both in learning
and in teaching. To this end a pilot support package was introduced
