The final-year Dissertation module allows students to study in depth and at length a topic of their own choosing, under the personal supervisor of an academic. Students begin to formulate their research focus before the end of their second year, and undertake formative preparatory work during the summer vacation. In-year assessment involves a Research Proposal, Presentation, and 10,000-word dissertation. Support is provided through personal supervisions and training workshops, but the emphasis is predominantly upon students' individual research.
