Research Skills Programme

An informal assessment exercise will be included as part of the Introduction to Academic Writing unit. The results of this assessment will be used to assign students to the most appropriate following unit. However, this will not be a formal assessed exercise, and will not contribute to the final examination of the MPhil.

Students are required to participate in the core units, and a minimum of 8 optional units, as a course requirement. Because optional units are chosen according to individual need or interest, students should assess for themselves whether their choices have been appropriate and sufficient to meet their individual needs. Based on this self-assessment, students are encouraged to discuss with their course adviser any further practical research skills that might be needed for completion of their individual project. Module convenors and project supervisors will be able to offer further advice.

Students will be issued with a log book to record units they have attended.
