what is difference between thesis and dissertation

At AUT, a thesis is associated with either a Doctoral or a Master’s degree. It is a substantial piece of original research. A dissertation is associated with either a Master’s or a Bachelor’s degree with Honours and may be a smaller piece of research or a critical analysis and evaluation of the literature related to a topic.
This guide aims to help you find AUT, national and international theses and dissertations. You may also find the resources related to thesis writing helpful.

The 120 points masters thesis is usually around 35,000-40,000 words including an abstract of about 350 words. It generally follows a BCom (Hons) as part of a 120 point Master of Commerce (MCom).
The 60 points master’s dissertation will be around 20,000 words and expected to follow the Level 9 CUAP guidelines for a master’s dissertation. It is part of a 180 point MCom, which will be available from 2017, subject to CUAP approval.
