Dedication, acknowledgements, & preface
Dedication, Acknowledgements, and Preface sections are all optional pages. But, what is the difference between these three?
Dedication — A personal tribute to someone or a group of people. Example: "To my parents."
Acknowledgements — A professional tribute to a person or people who helped you with the thesis. Example: "I wish to thank my thesis advisor for the hours of help in the lab making sure the experiments were set up properly and guiding me through the thesis process."
Preface ( sometimes confused with Foreward or Prologue ) — A very rarely included section that details why you are qualified to write about your topic of your thesis or why you became interested in the topic (for example, an anecdote about a childhood incident that led you to become interested in the topic). Do not confuse this with the literature review; this is more of a personal story.
The video below gives more examples of what can be included in these sections. Note: If your dedication is short (like "To my parents"), you may choose not to include the "Dedication" heading at the top of the page. A demonstration of how to format the dedication page this way is shown below.

Thesis acknowledgements: Samples and how to write your own thesis or dissertation acknowledgements
Writing a thesis can be tricky. That’s why I’m starting a new series covering each section of the thesis, from thesis acknowledgements all the way to conclusions. I’ll be guiding you through the whole process, from what to include in your thesis to how to write it, along with examples from defended theses to help you to write your own.
We’ll begin by covering thesis acknowledgments. The acknowledgements section appears at the start of the thesis so it is often one of the first parts that everyone tries to tackle. As this will likely be your first taste of your thesis it can often feel quite intimidating to write!
Thankfully it’s also one of the easiest parts of the thesis to complete, which may help to give you a boost for the rest.
In this post we’ll cover everything to do with thesis acknowledgements: samples, what to include and how to write them. At the end I’ll also outline a 60 minute exercise which will get you preparing a first draft of your own!
I’m writing this post with a PhD thesis in mind but it could work just as well if you’re looking for help including acknowledgements in your Master’s or undergraduate thesis/ dissertation.
What is the purpose of the acknowledgements section in a thesis?
The acknowledgements section of your thesis is an opportunity to reflect on the people who have supported and shaped your PhD experience.
Don’t worry, although your examiners will be interested to read your acknowledgements section, you won’t really get judged on it in your PhD viva. This section is for you to share as little, or as much, as you want about everyone involved in your PhD journey.
The acknowledgements are a very personal section of your thesis and each PhD student will have different things they want to include. For example, many people wonder: How do I thank my family in a thesis? And the acknowledgements section is the answer!
Note – You can also use a thesis dedication to thank your family. This is a separate section to your thesis acknowledgements and is entirely optional. It’s usually just a single line, just like you might find at the front of some books. Most people don’t include a separate dedication section but you can if you want to go that extra step.
What to include in your thesis acknowledgements
There are usually no formal requirements dictating what to include in your acknowledgements. However, do double check for any potential rules at your specific institution.
In general the acknowledgements are the section of your thesis where you have some creative liberty and are not bound by rigid research protocols or guidelines.
Many students choose to use the acknowledgements section to thank people (or organisations) who:
- Introduced them to the topic
- Helped with their PhD application
- Funded the project
- Partners, friends or family
- Or anyone else who made an impression along the way!
But remember, you can include whatever you want! For example in my own PhD acknowledgements, which you’ll read further down this post, I thanked the university for providing a green outdoor space for us.
Acknowledge whoever and whatever influenced your own PhD experience.
You may find it helpful to start by writing a list of everyone you wish to thank.
How do you write an acknowledgements section?
Since there are no guidelines to worry about, it is really up to you how you write your own thesis acknowledgements. You have a lot of freedom for what to include and how to write it.
However you may find the following suggested phases helpful as a starting point.
Who you want to thank…
- “First and foremost, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to…”
- “I must thank…”
- “A special thanks to…”
- “I would like to highlight two truly exceptional people from…”
- “I want to thank…”
- “In addition, I would like to mention”
- “I would also like to extend my thanks to…”
- “I want to give my deepest appreciation to…”
- “Finally, but the most importantly, I would like to thank…”
…then, why you want to thank them
It can be nice to also include why you’re thanking these people, using phrases such as:
- “…for the opportunity to be a part of this project”
- “…for always being there when I needed his support, reviewing my progress constantly, and guiding me through my PhD studies”
- “….for being a great bunch of people in and out of the lab”
- …”for all the guidance, support and outstanding feedback”
- “… who took their time to help teach me…”
- “…for her unlimited support and unconditional guidance during my PhD journey”
- “…were always there for discussions about anything that I was unsure on”
- “…whom has offered invaluable advice that will benefit me throughout my life”
- “…for supporting me since my undergraduate, and for the valuable discussions we had along the road”
- “…for making the past 4 years much more enjoyable and keeping me sane throughout the whole process”
Here is a whole example from an accepted PhD thesis:
Firstly, I want to thank [supervisor’s name(s)] for giving me the opportunity to work on this project, providing valuable guidance and feedback, and challenging me to grow as a scientist. Excerpt from Dr Wane’s thesis acknowledgements, available via this page or use this direct download link .
Some people will choose to use full names and titles for any professional acknowledgements and first names for any personal ones. Again, this is up to you.
To help illustrate the variety of thesis acknowledgement formats, we’ll shortly be coming on to some examples of acknowledgment sections from successfully defended theses.
Before then I want to cover some of the main questions relating to how to write your own thesis acknowledgements section:
How long should you spend writing your thesis acknowledgements?
My suggestion is to spend only an hour or two making a first draft. I suggest doing this well ahead of your final deadline so that you have time to come back to it. Even so, I’d certainly look to spend far less than one day’s work on it in total.
It is a “nice to have” and means a lot to a lot of people, but remember you’re really only writing this section for yourself. I probably spent about two hours writing mine in total, simply because it wasn’t a priority for me.
What order should you write your acknowledgements in?
A typical way to write your acknowledgements is to go from the most formal/academic relationships to the least.
It is normal to start with any funding bodies, then formal people like your PhD supervisors, then move through labmates, friends and family. But again, there are generally no rules!
How long should the acknowledgements section be?
You can include as much or as little as you want. My own PhD acknowledgements section was just under a page long and it consisted of 386 words or 1892 characters (without spaces).
Here is how it was formatted:
But let’s not just look at my thesis. Using Imperial’s publicly accessible database I went through 25 published PhD theses for you.
The average (mean) length of these 25 theses was 365 words and 1793 characters without spaces. Writing an acknowledgements section of length 350-450 words was the most common:
The shortest acknowledgements sections was 122 words(653 characters) long. The longest one consisted of 1022 words and 5082 characters. Hopefully this illustrates that you’re not really bound by any limits. Write as much or as little as you want for this section.
Sample thesis acknowledgements
My own phd thesis acknowledgement.
My own PhD thesis is available here *, the acknowledgements section is on page 5. Here is the complete version of my acknowledgements section:
I would like to acknowledge both EPSRC and the Class of 1964 Scholarship for their financial support. It has been an honour to be the inaugural recipient of the Class of 1964 Scholarship and I am indebted to the donors in providing me complete academic freedom in this research. An immense thank you to my PhD supervisors: Jonathan Jeffers, Ulrich Hansen and Julian Jones. Support and guidance throughout the project from you all has been invaluable. JJ in particular you’ve been a fantastic primary supervisor. Thank you to all the academics who helped me get to this stage. The late Dr Kajal Mallick and his Biomedical Materials course at the University of Warwick was a huge influence and without which I would have never followed this path. My “pre-doc” supervisors in Dr Helen Lee of University of Cambridge and in particular the remarkable Prof Judith Hall OBE of Cardiff University from whom I learned so much. Thanks to Alison Paul and Michael Lim for being so supportive when I was considering applying for PhDs. It has been an amazing experience working between two research groups across different departments, thanks to everyone from the Biomechanics and JRJ groups I’ve worked with and from whom I’ve learned so much. Thank you of course to the Hybrids team I’ve worked so closely on this project with: Fra, Gloria, Agathe, Maria, Silvia, it’s been great fun working with you all! Gloria in particular thanks for you all your help, support and friendship: your inclusivity is appreciated by many. Saman, I’ve been so pleased to have you working on DVC with me and being able to discuss ideas with you really has been invaluable. I am grateful to everyone I’ve collaborated with externally: Farah, Amin and Brett (Natural History Museum) plus Andy and Behzad (Royal Veterinary College), thank you all for your support and input. Thanks also to everyone I’ve met through the Environmental Society at Imperial in particular Chelcie: your friendship and support have added a lot to my life. Thanks to Imperial for providing space for the ESoc garden, taking a break and enjoy nature in this space has certainly improved my work. Thanks of course to my family for their support. Finally, thank you Jo for always being so supportive and helping me every step of the way. My PhD thesis, available here . Acknowledgements are on page 5.
*For me the thesis was a means to an end. I wanted my PhD and didn’t want to spend too long agonising over each page. Therefore, it is possible there are typos in there, if you read any of it: firstly well done, I haven’t looked at it much since submitting the final copy, secondly, please don’t tell me about any typos you find!

My top tips for writing your own thesis acknowledgements
- Don’t spend too long on them. The acknowledgements section is really not worth spending too much time on. Even worse, since they appear at the start of your thesis, it is tempting to write your acknowledgements first. This can be fine, or, it can be an opportunity for lots of unnecessary procrastination. Which I why I instead suggest that you…
- Write your acknowledgements at the end of your first draft of the thesis. There is no need to write your thesis in the order it is presented. If you write your acknowledgements at the end you’ll be less likely to spend precious time on a section which really doesn’t warrant too much brain power.
- Don’t stress about it. The acknowledgements are merely for yourself and for anyone close to you that you want to thank. There are far more important sections for you to be particular about!
- Remember: You can make changes after you submit the copy for your viva. As with everything in your thesis, you can make changes after you submit the thesis for your viva. The real “final” copy is when you submit your thesis to the university for archiving. Which is even more reason to not spend too much time writing it the first time around.
Draft your own thesis or dissertation acknowledgements in 60 minutes
Hopefully you now feel inspired to start writing your own thesis acknowledgments!
For the exercise below I’d suggest setting a stop-watch on your phone and move on to the next section when the alarm goes, even if you’ve not fully finished. The aim is to have a rough draft at the end which you can polish off at a later point in time.
- Read a few of the example thesis acknowledgements above to get a feel for the structure ( 15 mins )
- List everyone (or everything!) you wish to thank – including any personal and professional acknowledgements in addition to funding bodies if relevant ( 10 mins )
- Decide on a rough order in which to thank them ( 5 mins )
- Craft some sentences using the phrases mentioned above ( 30 mins )
Congratulations you’re now well on your way to having one section of your PhD thesis completed!
I hope this post has been useful for constructing your own thesis or dissertation acknowledgements. It is the first in a series of posts aiming to help your thesis writing by delving into each section in depth.

Acknowledgement Sample for thesis
This paper investigates Pakistani doctoral thesis acknowledgements from genre analysis perspective. A corpus of 235 PhD thesis acknowledgements written in English was taken from Pakistani doctoral theses collected from eight different disciplines. HEC Research Repository of Pakistan was used as a data sources. The theses written by Pakistani native PhD students, and submitted to Pakistani HEC recognized universities during the last five years, from 2008 to 2012, were selected for the collection of acknowledgements data. Swales’ (1990) conception of genre analysis in its modified form was followedfor the investigation of genre moves. In the initial stages, Hyland’s (2004b) coding scheme was utilized but due to broad socio-cultural differences between Hyland (2004b) and the present study, some other models such as Al-Ali (2010) were also sought for the coding of certain generic components. The analysis revealed seven moves along with certain sub-units or steps. These seven moves and their steps resulted from socio-cultural norms, academic traditions and institutional practices of acknowledgement writing in Pakistan.

The present study shows the bulk mineralogical composition of the Bara Formation from Lakhra anticline, near to Lakhra coalfield area of the Sindh province of Pakistan. The petrography, scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffractommeter were used for the detailed mineralogical investigations. Quartz, feldspars, hematite, gypsum, chlorite and goethite minerals were obtained from above methods. Quartz, feldspar and chlorite minerals indicated that the sediments were transported from igneous and metamorphic rocks and the hematite and goethite indicated the continental environment for the studied formation. Mineralogical investigation of the Bara Formation indicates that the sediments were supplied from the Igneous and metamorphic rock terrane. It can be said that the Bara formation sediments were supplied from the Igneous and metamorphic complex which is exposed in the southeastern part of the studied area.

Phosphonium ionic liquid conjugated magnetic graphitic carbon nitride nanocomposite: an effective sample pretreatment tool for selenium separation and determination.
We established an innovative and easy-to-use methodology for the selenium (Se) extraction and determination from real water samples utilizing a magnetic nanocomposite adsorbent (MNC-SPE) aided by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) approach. The MNC-SPE adsorbent was fabricated by hybridizing Fe3O4 nanoparticles on the surface of carbon nitride nanosheets (GCN NSs) that were coated with 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ionic liquid (P–IL). A variety of techniques were used to thoroughly analyze the structural and chemical characteristics of MNC-SPE, and appear to have great number of diverse active surface functional units (imidazole ring and –NH3+). In order to optimize the key factors affecting the Se extraction including the adsorbent dosage, contact time, eluent type, eluent volume, eluent time, and reusability of adsorbent were extensively studied. The proposed approach was validated under the optimal reaction conditions, and it showed good linearity between 0.15 and 100 pg µL−1 with a significant R2 value (R2 = 0.9994) toward Se metal. Besides, the Se limits of detection (LOD) and limits of quantification (LOQ) are 0.063 pg µL−1 and 0.147 pg µL−1, respectively. Further by utilizing tap and river water samples, the applicability of the validated method was tested, the approach showed high Se recovery values in the range of 87.6–115.5% for the spiked real-world samples and the interday and intraday precision (RSD%) values of the approach were 4.8% (n=6). The MNC-SPE can be regenerated and reused for four consecutive extraction-desorption cycles by employing 0.5 M NaOH eluent.
