Deciding a topic for your dissertation is the first step in making sure your research goes as smoothly as possible. When choosing a topic, it is important to consider: check the practical requirements of your course and always keep in mind the deadline and any specific requirements on research methods. When in doubt always check with your personal tutor. One of the most important factors in choosing a dissertation topic is to work on something that really interests you. Your dissertation or research project will take many weeks and months to complete. Therefore, it is to choose a topic that you find interesting. So what kind of available or regarding your chosen topic. So try and choose a topic that has existing research for you to read and evaluate.
