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.

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 Acknowledgement Writing Tips With The Most Useful Examples
What is the thesis acknowledgment? Before you learn how to write thesis acknowledgment you need to be sure you know what it is. An acknowledgment thesis is a dedicated section where students can thank the people (or organizations) that have assisted and supported them throughout the process of researching and writing the senior or graduate thesis.
The best acknowledgement for thesis will respectfully give thanks in a few short sentences immediately following the thesis’s title page and will generally be divided into two categories: professional and personal.
You can check with your department for specific guidelines on writing a Ph.D. thesis acknowledgment, but if you are looking for a convenient example of acknowledgment in thesis, we’ve provided a great collection so that you can get a better sense of how to write acknowledgment for thesis.
- Professional Acknowledgements This category may include funding organizations, academic supervisors, instructors, librarians, and more. You shouldn’t overlook anyone that played an important role in helping you complete your work, but be sure to list those that have had the greatest impact on your thesis.
- Personal Acknowledgements This category may include family, friends, and other people that provided support. The important thing is that you don’t make a long list of personal acknowledgments by showing gratitude to everyone in your life (avoid writing a long Oscar acceptance speech).
Need a Thesis Acknowledgment Examples? Here is a Great List
Here are some great thesis acknowledgment quotes you can refer to for inspiration. We encourage you not to just cut and paste but to take a close look at what can work. The best acknowledgment for a master thesis should come from the heart and be personal, so don’t copy others directly because someone may find out and put you in an awkward situation
Here are some acknowledgments in thesis samples to use when addressing professional groups or people :
- If it was not for the grant I received from the Reed Institute 3 years ago, I could never have launched this project and gained access to the valuable resources that allowed for this breakthrough in the study of Molecular Science.
- Dr. James Finebaum, Professor Alex Gorey, and Professor Jane Whitehead have all been paramount in inspiring me to pursue these unchartered waters toward finding alternative, cost-effective solutions in renewable energies.
- I’d like to sincerely express my gratitude to my academic advisor, Dr. Aliana Hernandez, who inspires me each day to push the limits of my knowledge by challenging me to ask difficult questions and not stop until I have found the answers.
Here are some options when you are looking for a good acknowledgment thesis sample for personal thank yous :
- My mother, Abigail Adams, was instrumental in defining the path of my academic interests. She served as an appellate court judge for 25 years and set me on a path of legal studies that has culminated in my earning a law degree from this fine institution.
- I’d like very much to address my family directly with gratitude. The years of unparalleled support and guidance have helped me not only define my academic and professional aspirations but have also ensured I never lost my faith or determination.
- I wish to express my special appreciation toward all of the members of the research team in Classroom Unit 2B. We are a strange bunch that came together to tackle an impossible project to earn the respect of so many within our field. Bigger and better things will come for all of us and I can’t wait to keep working with each one of them for years.
There is a time and place for a humorous anecdote, but this may be harder to achieve than you think. If you do decide to take this route, be sure to read an acknowledgment sample for a thesis to see just what qualifies as appropriate humor for this type of writing.
How to Write Acknowledgement for Thesis
Read a few thesis acknowledgments before you start writing yours. You will note that it is one of the few occasions where writing in the first person is encouraged but you must still maintain a professional tone that is appropriate for an academic document.
- Make lists for both your professional and personal master’s thesis acknowledgments. It’s better to err on the long side and then edit each list so that you only mention the most important people.
- Rearrange your professional list by placing the most important people at the top. This generally means including your thesis advisor and other teachers in your field. If you received funding from a group, you should list them among the most important acknowledgment section of the thesis.
- Next, arrange your personal list by placing the most important people at the top. Most students include family members and friends that helped along the way. When it comes to friends you don’t want to list everyone you’ve met throughout your life. Stick with those that supported you emotionally.
- Writing acknowledgments is much easier when you think of people in groups. For example, you may start your professional acknowledgment for thesis by stating your advisor’s name, one or two professors, and an organization with something like “I’d like to express my gratitude to Dr. Lindsey Carter, Professors Adam Chase and Tyler Crane, and the support I received from the Blaine Foundation.”
- There are no hard and fast rules on the length of the Ph.D. thesis acknowledgments. Some expert writers recommend you keep this section to no more than a minute or two. So as soon as you have a draft written, you should read it aloud to ensure it doesn’t go on for too long.
On some occasions, you may be required to present your thesis before a review board. In these cases, you must make sure you thank people who are present, whether or not are listed on your acknowledgment page thesis. Again, though, keep this to no more than 2 minutes.
Some Key Phrases to Use in the Acknowledgment Thesis
Despite needing to be as original as possible, there are a few key phrases you can use that have been proven to withstand the test of time. Have a quick look at the ones below and you will understand how clear and concise statements can effectively communicate sincere gratitude.
- I would like to thank my amazingly supportive peers…
- Without XXX’s expert advice and encouragement, I could not…
- I would like to acknowledge Dr. XXX for encouraging me to pursue
- I’d like to extend a more public show of gratitude…
- It is through the XXX Institution’s contributions that…
- Without the support of the research department, this project would not…
- It is my great pleasure to extend my gratitude towards…
- It has been a pleasure to work with such a close group…
- I am indebted to the unwavering support of my colleagues…
- Finally, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Aunt…

The acknowledgement for thesis is the section where you thank all people, institutions, and companies that helped you complete the project successfully. It is similar to a dedication, except for the fact that it is formal. Also, you don’t need to mention every single person who helped you with the research- just those who were most important to your research. For example, you don’t need to thank your boyfriend for making you dinner as you worked on the project.
What is an acknowledgement for thesis/for research?
In a research paper, an acknowledgement refers to the section at the beginning of your thesis formatting where you show your appreciation for the people who contributed to your project. It is up to you to determine who you are most grateful to for helping you with the research.
How do you write the thesis/dissertation acknowledgements?
Unlike acknowledgements in a book, a thesis or dissertation acknowledgement has to be formal. You should avoid showing strong emotions in the acknowledgement for thesis and should simply show your appreciation for their input.
Helpful: If you’re having trouble with phrasing your acknowledgement for thesis, transition words will help to enhance the flow of your writing.
Where do you put acknowledgements in a thesis?
The acknowledgement for thesis section is included right at the beginning in your thesis formatting . It is placed immediately after the table of contents, before the body of the thesis. The acknowledgement for thesis section is relatively brief.
Who should you thank in the acknowledgement for thesis section?
You should thank anyone who helped you with the project. Some people who are commonly included in the acknowledgement for thesis include your primary supervisor, other academic staff in your department, anyone who financed the research, and family and friends. Perhaps they helped you with your research proposal right at the beginning, or maybe they helped with editing your thesis. Regardless, you can recognise them in your acknowledgement for thesis. Although the first person is not used in academic research projects, you can use it in the acknowledgement for thesis section.
Can you use the first person in the acknowledgement?
Although the first person is not used in academic research projects, or most academic writing , you can use it in the acknowledgement for thesis section. The acknowledgement for thesis section is informal compared to the rest of your paper. However, you should still refrain from including strong emotional words in your acknowledgements.
Sample Acknowledgement for Thesis
The acknowledgement for thesis should be brief and should not include personal details. Here are some good sample thesis acknowledgements:
- I would like to express my gratitude to my primary supervisor, Michael Brown, who guided me throughout this project. I would also like to thank my friends and family who supported me and offered deep insight into the study.
- I wish to acknowledge the help provided by the technical and support staff in the Economics department of the University of London. I would also like to show my deep appreciation to my supervisors who helped me finalize my project.
Some common phrases you can use in the acknowledgement section of your project include:
- I wish to show my appreciation
- I would like to thank
- The assistance provided by Mr X was greatly appreciated
- I wish to extend my special thanks to
- I would like to thank the following people for helping me finalize the project
- Mr. X offered valuable data and statistics which I used in my project
Writing an Acknowledgement
The acknowledgement for thesis is typically written in the first person, singular or plural. You will have to avoid getting too personal as this section is not meant to be a dedication.You will typically start with the person who was most important in your study. This could be your professor, your supervisor, the staff, or even your family and friends. The last people you should acknowledge are those who played a smaller role in your research.
Acknowledgements don’t have a standard length. It could be just a few paragraphs, or it could run for a few pages. The length will primarily depend on the number of people you want to thank and acknowledge. It is advisable to keep the length of your acknowledgement for thesis as short as possible. If it gets very long, it could easily become meaningless. You can limit longer acknowledgements to the few people who had a significant impact on the study.
In the acknowledgement for thesis, you should try to be very specific. Mention the names of the people you are acknowledging, and not just their titles. Some people have trouble remembering the names of people and how they helped them with the research projects. If you have such tendencies, you can consider writing down the names of the people as they offer their help with the research. You should not miss out any party that played a major role in the study.
Do’s and Don`ts
- State the full names of the people you are acknowledging
- Use the first person singular or plural
- Write in formal language
- Identify the role played by each of the acknowledged parties
- List the funding organizations along with the parts of the projects that they funded
- Use personal or informal language
- Acknowledge every single person who had even the smallest impact on your research. For example, you don’t need to acknowledge the waitress at the restaurant where you used to relax after working on the project.
- Include people who qualified for authorship in the research project. A person will qualify for authorship if they make a substantial contribution to the project, if they draft and revise the work for intellectual content, and if they agree to be accountable for the content of the work.
In a Nutshell
- The acknowledgement for thesis section shows all the people who played an important role in the creation of the final paper, except for those who qualified for authorship.
- You should use the first person to show gratitude to the people who contributed to the project.
- You should show the specific role played by each person and party in the research project.
- The thesis acknowledgement should first show the people who contributed the most to the research and should end with the people who contributed the least.
- The thesis acknowledgement should be added after the table of contents in your research paper.

How to write acknowledgements in a thesis or dissertation
Navigating the intricate process of writing a thesis or dissertation can be challenging.
One crucial, yet often overlooked part is the thesis acknowledgement. It is also the only bit of my thesis that anyone really reads.
This section allows you to express gratitude to those who contributed to your academic journey. From supervisors and professors to family and friends, the acknowledgement section provides a platform to thank all who played a part in your work.
Whether you’re unsure about how to begin or looking for the best ways to acknowledge your mentors, this blog will provide valuable insights and practical advice to help you create an impactful thesis acknowledgement.
What is your thesis acknowledgement?
A thesis acknowledgement is a section in your thesis where you express gratitude to those who helped and supported you during your research and writing process.
It typically comprises two parts: professional and personal acknowledgements.
- Professional acknowledgements include your supervisor, colleagues, other academics, funding bodies, or institutions that significantly contributed to your work.
- Personal acknowledgements encompass your family and friends who provided emotional support or helped with editing and proofreading.
The acknowledgements section is usually more informal than the rest of your thesis , and it’s acceptable to write in the first person. It’s typically placed at the beginning of your thesis, either before the abstract or the table of contents.
Although the length may vary, it usually doesn’t exceed one page. It’s crucial to plan ahead, listing everyone you wish to thank and consider their specific contribution to your work.
Who to thank in your acknowledgements
In your acknowledgements, you should first thank the members of academia who contributed to your research, including:
- funding bodies,
- and research participants.
Mention them using their full names and titles.
If an authoritative figure in your field provided feedback, their acknowledgement adds weight to your research.
Despite the circumstances, a brief thank you to your supervisor is necessary.
Personal acknowledgements can include friends, family members, or even pets who provided inspiration or support during the writing process. Always refer to your university’s guidelines on acknowledgements.
Creating an acknowledgement can be slightly subjective, as the order and individuals to be thanked can vary greatly depending on the circumstances of the work and the author’s preferences.
However, generally, this example follows a common structure:
The order can be customized based on the importance of the roles these individuals played in the author’s journey.
Some may prefer to thank family or significant others first, while others might start with professional relationships such as advisors or collaborators.
It’s also crucial to keep in mind that the way of expressing gratitude can differ significantly between cultures and individuals.
How Long Should My Acknowledgements Be?
The length of an acknowledgement section varies depending on the individual and the nature of the project.
Some people prefer to keep their acknowledgements brief and only thank those individuals who made significant contributions to their work.
Others may choose to include a more extensive list of people, such as mentors, colleagues, and friends, who provided support and encouragement throughout the process.
In general, it is recommended to keep your acknowledgements concise and focused on those who had a direct impact on the project
. Including a heartfelt thank you to these individuals is a meaningful way to show appreciation for their efforts.
However, it is important not to get carried away and turn the acknowledgement page into a long list of names. Remember that the focus should be on quality rather than quantity, as the acknowledgement section should not overshadow the main content of the project.
Where Should My Acknowledgements Go?
The placement of your acknowledgements can vary, but it’s typically located in the first part of your thesis.
Mine is right after the abstract and before the introduction of my PhD thesis.
You can place it right before your dissertation abstract or before the table of contents. However, the exact positioning may depend on the guidelines and requirements provided by your university.
Always ensure to check your university’s formatting requirements to be sure you’ve chosen the correct location for your acknowledgements section.
Thesis acknowledgement examples
Here is my PhD thesis acknowledgement.
Here are some sentence starters that you can use for inspiration:
1. “This thesis acknowledgement is a tribute to all the people who made my academic journey worthwhile.” 2. “I would like to thank my supervisor, whose unwavering support has been instrumental in the completion of this thesis.” 3. “In this acknowledgement section, I extend my deepest gratitude to all who have walked with me on this challenging but fulfilling journey.” 4. “Firstly, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the academic staff who provided their invaluable expertise and guidance.” 5. “My thesis would not have been possible without the endless help and support from my colleagues.” 6. “Special thanks go to my family, whose constant encouragement fueled my perseverance during the completion of this dissertation.” 7. “In the professional acknowledgements, I would like to acknowledge the significant contributions made by my research participants.” 8. “I would also like to thank the funding bodies, whose financial support made this research possible.” 9. “Through this acknowledgment, I express my heartfelt gratitude to my friends who have been my pillars of strength.” 10. “The completion of this thesis or dissertation is the culmination of efforts from various individuals whom I would like to express my sincere appreciation.” 11. “This thesis acknowledgement section is an opportunity to give thanks to those who made this journey less daunting.” 12. “I would like to express my gratitude to my editor, whose meticulous proofreading greatly improved my thesis.” 13. “Without their dedication, this thesis would not have been possible.” 14. “I express my sincere gratitude to all those whose names appear in this acknowledgement for their invaluable input.” 15. “In this acknowledgement for my thesis, I extend my appreciation to all those who have been part of this journey.”
Top tips to write acknowledgements
- Plan Ahead : Make a list of the people you want to acknowledge and their specific contributions to your work.
- Follow University Guidelines : Check your university’s formatting and content guidelines to ensure your acknowledgements adhere to them.
- Use First Person : Unlike the rest of your thesis, the acknowledgements can be written in the first person.
- Keep it Brief : The acknowledgement section should generally not exceed one page. Be concise and precise in expressing your gratitude.
- Maintain Professional-Personal Order : Start with professional acknowledgements (e.g., supervisors, colleagues, funders) before moving on to personal ones (e.g., friends, family).
- Be Specific : Highlight the specific contributions each person or organization made to your thesis.
- Use Full Names and Titles : When acknowledging academic contributors, use their full names and appropriate titles.
- Use Informal Language : Acknowledgements can be written in a more informal style, but avoid colloquial language.
- Proofread : Ensure your acknowledgements are free of spelling and grammar errors.
- Be Genuine and Sincere : The acknowledgements section should sincerely reflect your gratitude to the people who helped you in your academic journey.
Wrapping up – writing your acknowledgements section
As we reach the conclusion of this informative journey into the art of writing acknowledgements for a thesis or dissertation, it’s clear that this often-overlooked section carries significant emotional and professional weight.
A dissertation acknowledgements page is more than just a list of names; it’s a chance to express genuine gratitude and give due credit to all who have contributed to your academic journey.
Remember, writing this section of your thesis isn’t an obligatory chore but a genuine opportunity to thank those who supported you.
From the tireless members of your thesis committee to the friends and family who offered emotional support, it’s a platform to acknowledge all the people who helped.
From mentors who provided expert guidance, colleagues who offered invaluable insights, to the institutions that funded your research – everyone deserves a heartfelt note of thanks.
Sample acknowledgements in a thesis often include both professional acknowledgements first, followed by personal ones, ensuring that all contributors are recognized appropriately. Always remember to use full names and titles for professional acknowledgements, and express your gratitude sincerely.
The acknowledgement page isn’t a place for long tales, jokes or anecdotes; instead, keep your acknowledgements concise, specific, and heartfelt.
As shown in the thesis acknowledgement examples, you should reflect on the people and organizations that significantly contributed to your research or writing, whether in a substantial technical manner or through support and guidance throughout the process.
Studentship that allowed you to pursue your research, faculty who guided your studies, even friends who provided distractions when they were most needed – all these contributors deserve your thanks. Remember, it’s okay to use their first names for those who’ve been part of your personal journey, but for professional acknowledgments, full names and titles are recommended.
As a PhD student, your acknowledgements should reflect your journey – the struggles, the triumphs, and most importantly, the people who have helped you along the way. Whether you include a list of names in alphabetical order, or you decide to group people or organizations, remember to be genuine, concise, and respectful.
Whether it’s a thesis dedication to a mentor, expressing gratitude to your parents, thanking your friends for their love and encouragement, or even including certain political aspects that influenced your research, the acknowledgments section is yours to personalize.
Writing a thesis or dissertation is a monumental task, and the people who support you through it are worth acknowledging. Keep this guide in mind when you write your thesis acknowledgements, and don’t forget to thank those who’ve been there for you – for in the journey of research and writing, no one truly walks alone.
The last sentence may be a heartfelt statement, “I would like to express my gratitude to all those who walked with me throughout my research journey – your support was my strength, and this achievement is as much yours as it is mine.”

The acknowledgements section of your thesis provides you with an opportunity to thank anyone who supported you during the research and writing process. Before writing your acknowledgements, it's helpful to first choose who exactly you want to include. Then, you can construct your acknowledgements using the right tone and language to properly thank those who contributed to and supported your work in both academic and personal ways.
Choosing Who to Thank
- If you choose not to include funders or advisors in your acknowledgements, you could risk insulting them. This could prevent them from working with you in the future, and could even lead them to refuse to write you any letters of recommendation.
- In many cases, you'll have 1 academic advisor who is the chair of your thesis review committee, and then 2 or 3 additional faculty members who serve as secondary co-advisors. If this is the case, make sure that you include your secondary co-advisors in addition to your chair.
- This could be other faculty members, fellow students, research assistants, archivists, librarians, or other institutional personnel who assisted in the research and writing process in any way.
- Professional contributors could include people who read and reviewed your work, helped facilitate research, or talked through challenging concepts and ideas with you throughout the thesis-writing process.
- For example, while you may be close with and enjoy seeing a particular cousin or childhood friend, if they weren't actively supporting you during this time, you likely won't have space to include them in your acknowledgements.
- If a well-known academic in your field was particularly inspirational but did not read your work, you can also mention them in your acknowledgements if you have space to do so.
- If your faith is particularly important to you, you could also consider dedicating your thesis to the higher power you believe in. This could be done within the acknowledgments, or on a separate dedication page depending on your institution's formatting preferences.
- If someone was a great influence in your life but didn't contribute to your thesis directly, you could consider writing them a personal letter or email instead of including them in your acknowledgements.
Constructing Your Acknowledgements
- While there's no set rule about acknowledgement order, in general, funders are thanked first for their financial support, then academic supervisors, followed by other academics and professionals, as well as colleagues and classmates.
- If you're afraid that your personal supporters might be offended by being acknowledged last, you could explain to them that this is a professional courtesy.
- Since your academic advisor was likely a big part of your research and writing process, you'll likely want to expand on how they helped you. For example, you could write, “I would like to thank my advisor, Dr. Timothy Kelly, for his guidance and prompt feedback throughout this process.”
- In contrast, you can include only first names for your personal acknowledgements if you choose.
Using the Right Tone and Language
- If you focus on your own accomplishments too much, you could risk coming off as a bit smug. Instead, let the quality of your work speak for itself and use the acknowledgements to focus on others.
- This is particularly important to keep in mind when you thank your academic peers or faculty members that you've developed a personal relationship with, as it can be tempting to write too casually in these instances.  X Research source
- For example, to thank your advisor, you could write, “I could not have completed this work without the unwavering support of my chair, Dr. Sherre McWhorter. Dr. McWhorter, your patience and guidance made this work possible.”
- If your parents provided substantial support for you during this process, thank them in a personal manner by saying something like, “It is impossible to extend enough thanks to my family, especially my parents, who gave me the encouragement I needed throughout this process.”
- Instead of naming each of your friends individually, you could try thanking them collectively in a more casual manner. For example, you could write, “To my friends, this would have been a much more difficult feat without you. Thank you all for your unwavering support and for reminding me to take breaks and have fun when I’ve been stressed out.”
- If you want to thank someone for their support in a more emotional, personal manner, try thanking them in person or with a handwritten letter.

To successfully come up with your thesis acknowledgement, read this helpful guidance article or contact our pro writers to get dissertation help . How to write an acknowledgement for a thesis? This section should be presented only to express your sincere gratitude to individuals who helped you in your work or paper writing.
In your paper, give credit in its preface, not in some other independent section. Be grateful for the advisor’s support or assistance you receive during your research from your university or people in your finished paper.
A simple thesis acknowledgement is your brief section at its beginning where you thank everyone who supported you during studies. How to acknowledge a thesis? This section shouldn’t be too long. Be polite to mention people or organizations that contributed to your thesis, don’t forget anyone important in your grateful words.
Post your comments with gratitude on a separate page right after your abstract and before contents. Take time to find answers to several important questions to end up with your best sample for acknowledgement for thesis writing:
- Who do you need to thank?
- What tone should you use?
- Why use a thesis acknowledgement?
You don’t need to thank every friend who assisted you individually, ensure that you mention everyone important for your research or who gave you significant support. Don’t forget to thank academics who gave you useful advice or assisted your study in different ways. Thank volunteers and professional bodies.
You should thank both formal and friendly, don’t use overblown language to note people who supported you and briefly explain their contributions to understand how to write an acknowledgement for a thesis.
There are different reasons to use it. Some students decide to write their acknowledgement section in thesis or dissertation projects because they were complex, while others include it because they worked hard for a long time. If many people have helped you during several years, you would like to reflect on them to show your gratitude. Who are these people? In a thesis acknowledgement, people often mention:
- Fellow students;
- Possible respondents;
The main purpose of having an acknowledgement page is offering a thankful note to those who provided support to you during the study. Well, consider it as a page saying thank you to your doctor after a lifesaving procedure. Note that though the thesis acknowledgement does not have an academic bearing, your dissertation cannot be complete without it. Therefore, you must not only know how to write a thesis , but also put the best foot forward to making it shine. Make sure to write the acknowledgement starting with the people who were most helpful during the study.
Using your preface and acknowledgement in your thesis simultaneously is redundant. How to make this choice? If you want to thank people and provide readers with extra information, write your preface. If you don’t have enough space, write your thesis acknowledgement.
In Ph.D. or senior thesis writing, you should give credit to the department, people, funding bodies in a separate acknowledgement section if they helped you during your project. Find excellent samples to thank people who supported you financially, gave you valuable feedbacks, helped in any other way. Your notes of thanks are your thesis acknowledgement.
Read requirements or guidelines to phrase this section correctly and avoid compromising your future grades, ask funding bodies for their rules to know how to credit their contribution. Consider these general elements.
- Your brief statement as to the type of help you received from people or organizations;
- Full names of all people who you want to thank.
Some academic disciplines require ethical clearance or permission.
As for the types - generally, there are two categories of acknowledgements: professional and personal.
It is wise to place the professional acknowledgements first, as there is a certain political aspect to keep in mind when writing. Read your list of all contributors to mention any academia members who helped you in writing this important paper. You have room only for major contributors. Though there is no set rule, the standard order is to move from most formal to least:
- Upper-level professors and supervisors;
- Different advisors;
- Lab assistants;
- Research participants (e.g. people who completed a survey to help you gather data).
Who else? Include in this important section anyone who helped you in conducting your experiments or surveys, researching, or writing. Use titles and full names of academic contributors. When thanking your friends, use their names. If many people within the same big group supported your writing, you should state only a specific group name.
Be sure to use full names, with titles. If several members of a group or organization assisted you, mention the collective name only. If you wish to protect someone’s privacy, use only their first name.
If an authoritative person in your field of study discussed your research with you or gave feedback in any form, mentioning their contribution, however limited it may have been, will help strengthen the authority of your own research.
Before you write anything, make your list of people who are linked to your project in any way. Some of them read or edit your paper, while others listen to your academic woes or encourage you regularly. Mention friends or family active in graduate studies.
If some people inspire or improve your work, their names should be included in your thesis acknowledgement section. State how they help you. This step will be meaningful to these people and they’ll be grateful to you for giving them credit for their work.
There is no need to mention every member of your family or friend group. However, if someone was particularly inspiring or supportive, you may wish to mention them specifically. For example, you might acknowledge a grandparent whose own academic pursuits encouraged your own.
Many students find it hard to include their personal writing in the end of important technical projects. Use your suitable form or tone. Make this page brief, professional, and specific to all people who supported your project along the way. Use an alphabetical order or other styles.
- Start with your important teachers;
- List other contributors;
- Address any financial aid you receive;
- Out personal or emotional supporters last.
Your most important teachers go first. Mention any major professors or advisors overseeing your project, committee members, other supervising academics who participate in your dissertation. Try to think in groups. Other helpers who deserve your gratitude include lab assistants, classmates, all people who helped you with this paper.
If you received any financial support from specific research groups or foundations that gave you any fellowship, grant, or scholarship, thank them by title. What about your personal supporters? Your partners, friends, or other acquaintances who contributed to your emotional well-being or confidence go last in this list. Avoid personal jokes or anecdotes.
Writing your grateful words is important to earn higher grades, and our thesis service can assist you with writing thesis acknowledgement. You can order this type of paper on our website. Let qualified and trained writing professionals help you thank people or organizations who supported your successful project completion.
First and foremost, I have to thank my research supervisors, [Ms Name Surname], [Mr Name Surname] and [Ms Name Surname]. Without their assistance and dedicated involvement in every step throughout the process, this paper would have never been accomplished. I would like to thank you very much for your support and understanding over these past four years. I would also like to show gratitude to my committee, including [Ms Name Surname], [Ms Name Surname], [Ms Name Surname], [Mr. Name Surname] and [Ms Name Surname]. [Ms Name Surname]was my first-year [subject] professor at [Name ]University. Her teaching style and enthusiasm for the topic made a strong impression on me and I have always carried positive memories of her classes with me. I discussed early versions of the [Name of the subject] with [Mr. Name Surname]. She raised many precious points in our discussion and I hope that I have managed to address several of them here. Even though I have not had the opportunity to work with [Mr. Name Surname], [Mr. Name Surname], or [Ms Name Surname], previously, the impact of their work on my own study is obvious throughout this dissertation. In March 2012, I went to [Name] University for several weeks to study with [Ms Name Surname]. My time at [Name] University has been highly productive and working with [Ms Surname] was an extraordinary experience. Much of the analysis presented in Section III is owed to my time at [Name of the University]. [Mr Name Surname] at the [Name] University kindly assisted me with the statistical analysis in this dissertation and was very patient with my knowledge gaps in the area. I must also thank two colleagues at the Department of [Name], [Name Surname] and [Name Surname], for giving me the retreat to have this thesis rushed to the printer. Getting through my dissertation required more than academic support, and I have many, many people to thank for listening to and, at times, having to tolerate me over the past three years. I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for their friendship. [Name Surname], Name Surname], [Name Surname] and [Name Surname] have been unwavering in their personal and professional support during the time I spent at the University. For many memorable evenings out and in, I must thank everyone above as well as [Name Surname], [Name Surname] and [Name Surname]. I would also like to thank [Name Surname] who opened both her home and heart to me when I first arrived in the city. Most importantly, none of this could have happened without my family. My grandmother, who offered her encouragement through phone calls and letters every week – despite my own limited devotion to correspondence. With her own brand of humor, [Name Surname] has been kind and supportive to me over the last several years. To my parents and my sister – it would be an understatement to say that, as a family, we have experienced some ups and downs in the past three years. Every time I was ready to quit, you did not let me and I am forever grateful. This dissertation stands as a testament to your unconditional love and encouragement.
Prima facie, I am grateful to God for the good health and wellbeing that were necessary to complete this book. I wish to express my sincere thanks to [………], Principal of the Faculty, for providing me with all the necessary facilities for the research. I place on record, my sincere thank you to […….] Dean of the Faculty, for the continuous encouragement. I am also grateful to […….], lecturer, in the Department of […….].

Therefore, read your university guidelines before start writing this section of your thesis.
