Length of thesis

It’s limited in order to encourage focus. If you know you can’t go over 100K words you’re going to have to be strict with how you design your structure and your topic to begin with, which in itself is quite the skill. Same would apply if it was page length, of course. But even for general coursework assignments throughout an undergrad’s 3-4 years it’s all done in word length – a 1,500 word lit review, or a 3,000 word end-of-semester essay, etc. Of course on top of that we’re not given as many individual assignments from week to week as our US counterparts, but generally a shorter piece mid-semester and a longer in-depth piece at the end, and perhaps an exam as well. In the humanities, that is – I have no idea what those odd science types do 😛
