Dissertation - Proposal
The text below is an extract from the MSc handbook for students
By the end of term 2 (last week of lectures) students should produce a brief research proposal, of about 10 pages. This should give an introduction to the general subject area and of the more specific problems and objectives to be studied. It should mention which literature has been studied so far and how the research will continue. This will usually be prepared in consultation with the project supervisor.
While this proposal does not count toward the final grade it is still a compulsory part of the dissertation. The research proposals are approved by the external examiner for the MSc programme at the Examinations Sub-Board meeting in June. Failure to complete a satisfactory proposal may result in the student being moved from the MSc programme to the PgDip.
