Due to my many years of ghostwriting experience and as a former lecturer at a university of applied sciences I am happy to give tips for diploma theses which make the work considerably easier: the choice of the topic and the right supervisor, a consistent logical structure, the consequent fixation of the sources up to the Easily create summaries and conclusions.

  1. Choose the right topic

A considerable amount of time means e.g. the search for a topic. It therefore proves to be very advantageous to choose a topic that already has sound basic knowledge. This can also be an issue with which one deals privately, with passion, as a hobby, or the own family business, a special fondness, a particularly formative life experience. In many cases, this enthusiasm for a cause is also received very positively and with interest by the supervisor. It is good, if necessary, to agree with the ghostwriter.

Also the respective subject plays an important role in the choice of the method. As a ghostwriter, I have sound experience in the fields of economics, sociology, psychology, education, health science, history and philosophy, as well as construction engineering as a former HTL structural engineer.

  1. Choose the right supervisor

Another important point is the choice of supervisor – if this is possible by the student. In practice, two mistakes are common: The supervisor is very competent in the field – or on the contrary, he has little idea of ​​it. Both brings difficulties in the preparation of the thesis – a knowledge from years of experience as a ghostwriter. In the first case, there are often very detailed ideas about individual contents or results of the diploma thesis. For the undergraduate, this means having to deal excessively with these details, which are often of little importance to the result. In case two, if the supervisor has little knowledge in this special field, it also leads to unpleasant experiences: It is of course not acknowledged by the care of this ignorance. Instead, there are nevertheless guidelines that are often nonsensical and often worsen good work and are associated with additional effort. You can also look at the publication list on the university website and consult experienced colleagues.

  1. Logically structured structure

First of all an Exposé or a disposition of the diploma thesis is prepared, here there is usually a sample on the part of the university or college. As a rule, it also already contains the chapter classification. This should be logical and coherent and not possible to change any more – because then you have a substructure, where you can always be clearly oriented, the work is broken down into small bite-sized appetizers, from a confusing “problem” are small work packages.

  1. Document all sources immediately

It is important to record all sources and to write down the appropriate contents in the form of excerpts – short summaries – in the best possible language. These excerpts can then be incorporated into the respective sections. There is also more information about the citation and the bibliography. Immediately sticking to the source

  • author
  • year
  • page

is very important, because later it is very difficult to find them again. Of course it is much easier with Internet sources.

  1. Summaries and conclusions on own file

In order not to have to scroll back and forth, you open a second file when working out a summary or a conclusion and can thus much easier summarize the chapter or the whole thesis and derive the corresponding further conclusions.
