The dissertation will test your ability to identify a research topic and formulate a research question, to identify and carry out the necessary research to answer that question, to synthesize and analyse the results of that research, and to present your findings in a clear, coherent argument sustained over 12,000 - 15,000 words.
Teaching and learning methods
Supervision of the dissertation itself will take place in the period from April through to the end of June. You are entitled to three meetings of at least 30 minutes each with your supervisor. Your supervisor can also read up to a maximum of 3000 words of draft. In order to get detailed feedback on the organization and argumentation of the project as a whole, you may wish to ask for feedback on a detailed outline rather than a chunk of text. For full-time students, all three dissertation supervision meetings normally take place before graduation in July (full-time students).
