About This Course

The research process journey is normally tiring and frustrating. This becomes complicated especially if you are allocated a supervisor who is unavailable to guide you in the process. A lot of undergraduate and postgraduate students find themselves walking this journey alone only to get surprised during examination or defense when they fail the examination. This course is meant to lay the foundation for writing a thesis or a dissertation that will be acceptable before a panel of examiner.

This course will ensure that before examination, the candidate/student is aware of the likely questions that the examiners will ask before the defense. Each section is well demonstrated using each section from my own Ph.D., which gives you practical application of the lessons. What I teach you in this course is what I have learned during my many years of guiding both my undergraduate and postgraduate students in their research work at the University of Nairobi and also my experience as a PhD candidate.

I have packaged this course in a simplified manner document to ensure that you have 100% chance of writing a good research paper that will impress the examiners. I guarantee that you will find this course useful and valuable to boost your confidence in writing the research work, submitting it, defending it successfully and ultimately passing the defenses and finishing your degree in time.

This course has 4 topics covered in 15 lessons. Topic 1 which runs from Lesson 1 – 12 covers the research proposal, topic 2, lesson 13 covers chapter five; topic covers the general structure of thesis or dissertation while topic 4, lesson 14 and 15 ends with a discussion on preparation for defense including the likely questions that the examiners are likely to ask and ten successful tips to ensure that you finish the research work in time.

This course assumes that the learner has already gone through the Research Methods and Statistics course units. CLICK HERE to learn high quality Research Methods course for free.
