For some reason many students prefer to look online for dissertation examples. I usually divide such people into two groups. The first group of restless seekers secretly believes that somewhere in the boundless waters of Internet there lies the example of the dissertation, which coincidently matches their topic and gives out the main points of writing. There is nothing more I can urge these people except stop wasting their time.
Another group of students usually struggles with a long list of guidelines as to formatting a Title Page, Lists of tables and Graphs, Bibliography or Appendices. These people simply want a practical embodiment of proposed steps and want to look at a written page. Well, this is the usual occasion and many students have successfully managed their dissertation writing with the help of such dissertation examples.
There are only a few things I would like to advise to the last group. First of all, when looking at a dissertation example of a Title, for example, make sure it corresponds to the writing style you are obliged to obey. Several little details can ruin everything, trust me, so pay attention.
Also, make sure that even if they match, the information is up-to-date. Styleguide manuals have a tendency to be adjusted every few years. Don’t let a misunderstanding creep onto the pages of your paper just because the dissertation example is not new enough.
Finally, look for dissertation examples on the homepages of your universities and once in a while show the parts of dissertation writing you are not sure in to your dissertation advisor
