Projects

MSc Week for projects

Process

  • The student develops an idea for a project, and discusses this idea with their supervisor. With the supervisor's encouragement, the student submits an outline project proposal, and books a place on a project week.
  • The project week affords an opportunity for the student to start work in earnest, to attend teaching sessions and workshops, and to have one-to-one meetings with their supervisor.
  • Six weeks later, the student submits a progress report. If this is approved, they may continue. If not, then they will need to submit a revised report for assessment after the next project week.
  • The student provides their supervisor with further reports on progress as they complete the project and start to work on the dissertation.
  • The student submits their dissertation before the end of their current final term of study.

Project Week will:

  • Structure and expectations
  • Introduce the various kinds of projects that we encourage and discuss with relevant examples.
  • Discuss academic writing in terms of presentation 
  • Provide instruction on gathering material and research artifacts
  • Describe the process of thesis writing and engage students on appropriate chapter construction through examples
  • Describe project assessment with examples
