The project is designed to give students the opportunity of studying an agreed topic under supervision on an individual basis and to a greater depth than is possible within existing modules. Students must fill in the proposal form and should undertake a programme of preparatory work during the long vacation. A programme of compulsory research workshops will be timetables the first semester and each student will have an opportunity to present their research to a small group in the second semester. Assessment is on the basis of two coursework assignments and a dissertation of 12,000 words.
LV21 History & Politics students cannot opt for this module.
