1) Students wishing to undertake these units need to have a distinction average across at least two units in the area of study they wish to research. Enrolment in these units cannot take place until students have submitted an approved proposal to the Unit Chair, who will allocate a supervisor.
This unit enables students to undertake a four credit point research project over two trimesters. It is paired with ALX716.
Students will determine the content of their Research Projects through negotiation and consultation with their supervisors. Projects may involve creative projects combined with an exegesis, or may constitute a 9000 - 10000 word report which is based on primary and secondary sources. They may also draw on fieldwork or other data and will involve theoretical, interpretative and analytical work.
Students enrolled in ALX715 will complete 9000 - 10000 words towards a Research Project of 18000 - 20000 words. Their results will be held over until they have completed ALX716, when they will submit their completed project.
