Please be advised that bookings for all taster sessions will close at 10am the day before the session, or earlier if the session becomes fully-booked. We therefore recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

If you are a teacher, please encourage your pupils to book individually.

This interactive session will take you through the process of conducting an English Language investigation. We will consider how to find a research area, and then how to think about hypotheses and research question(s). We will then explore how to find a methodology and the data that this will provide you with. How you might undertake your research, look at your data, and draw conclusions from it will also be considered, as will how you can write up your work.
