Assessment methods

Research Methods Course: Each of the Research Method Course modules is assessed through assignments that require students to link the concepts from that module to their own research project. Qualifying Report: The RMC is designed to lead to the development of a Qualifying Report, a written document approximately 6,000 words in length which forms the basis for the final thesis. The Qualifying Report is examined by viva voce and has to be successfully completed before the student proceeds onto the next stage of the research project. Final Thesis: The research project culminates in the submission of a final thesis of up to 80,000 words in length. The thesis must be successfully defended by viva voce before the degree can be awarded.
