Roll up roll up, here are the best dissertation pics from the class of 2019

If you didn’t pretend to give birth to your diss did you really try?


Is there really any point of doing a dissertation? At the end of the day, your contribution to academia will have been minimal, and it’ll be unlikely that anyone will ever look at it again.

It’s likely that more time will have been spent trying to come up with a funny and original dissertation photo idea than the actual time you have spent thinking about what to write about for 10,000 words.

Whilst your Instagrams are probably flooded with dissertation pics using the same “diss” joke that’s been used on repeat since 2012, these are the best diss pics from the class of 2019:
