Masters Modules.

Dissertation Module.

Each degree entails a dissertation, which is a substantive project in which you will be expected to undertake research-led inquiry on a topic that is relevant to your degree. You will have a great deal of intellectual freedom to select your topic and define the parameters of enquiry. To support you with this, you will be given a dedicated dissertation supervisor, who will offer you one-to-one guidance at all stages of the dissertation process. For many students, the dissertation is the high-point of their studies, which makes individual supervision one of the most rewarding ways to learn.
