ELL340 : ELL Dissertation modules

Convenor(s): To be announced


Please note: This module may or may not run in any individual session. Please check with the course Convenor.

General Information

Please note that there are two 20-credit modules that go together: Research Practice (semester 1) and Dissertation (semester 2).

Research Practice’ is normally taken in combination with the ‘Dissertation’ module, and, together, these two units give students the opportunity to spend a whole year researching a topic of particular interest to them, engaging with new data or primary sources, and working on material more advanced than that normally covered in taught modules.

‘Research Practice’ focuses on the planning of the larger project. Students receive appropriate support and training in workshops and one-to-one sessions with a supervisor. By the end of the module, students have designed an appropriate programme of research and are ready to implement it.

The final result of the Dissertation module is a dissertation of between 8,000 and 10,000 words. Students receive support and research training throughout the year, attending workshops and one-to-one sessions with a supervisor. In the process, they develop research and communication skills valuable in academic and professional contexts.
