There are two types of dissertation that you can choose to write; either standard or practice-based. The information within this handbook may help you decide which you want to write. The dissertation is an important and challenging conclusion to the MA (60 credits) and requires considerable care in the selection of topic and writing. This will be done in collaboration with your dissertation supervisor.

Dissertation planning and supervision takes place in Semester 2 and you continue with your independent writing over the summer. Dissertation work normally happens in Year 2 for Part-time students. However, Part-time students have the option to submit a dissertation proposal and commence with their dissertation in Year 1 if they wish.
