Writing and defending a thesis



In the module on writing and defending the thesis you will reflect on the research knowledge and skills you have developed in Part One of the programme.

During Part Two, you write your research proposal, carry out your research project and write up your thesis for submission for MPhil (20,000 words) or PhD (45,000 words) degree. The aim of the Module on Writing and defending the thesis is to support research and reflection activities within the learning community throughout Part Two including writing your research proposal and preparation for your vive voce examination. There will be regular, short periods of activity interspersed with your individual research activity.
