This module is offered to undergraduate students who are in the final stage of their studies, in the process of writing their dissertation/research project, or about to do it. The module addresses the general organisational components of research/dissertation writing, such as the introduction, the literature review, the methodology, the findings, the discussion, and conclusions. This module is divided into alternating input and tutorial sessions over ten weeks: each input session is followed by your attempt to work on your research. The input sessions will combine the theory of research writing in higher education contexts and the analysis of successful samples of dissertations from students at QMUL.
