Research proposal (10% of the individual student’s mark for the module) Once a clear idea on the dissertation topic is agreed by the student in consultation with the (intended) dissertation supervisor, each student is required to write a research proposal for the project to be conducted, which should be submitted online via the module Learn page using the TurnItIn facility. In brief, the research proposal is a preliminary report to help the students clarify their focus, objectives, academic literature, and methods. It should be structured in the following way: ? Your name and contact details (phone and e-mail). ? Your dissertation title, which indicates the proposed area of study (note: this can be modified as the research work progresses). 6 ? A statement of your research question followed by a brief but thorough literature review (including citation of key references) addressing what is currently known about the topic you intend to research. ? Your likely research method (including whether it will be qualitative or quantitative or mixed, and why). ? Preliminary details about: o How you will collect your data (including sample profile and measures/interview questions), and o How you will analyse your data (including a specific mention of which methods will be used). ? A brief section on any ethical or confidentiality issues that is expected to encounter in the dissertation. ? A clear timetable for the research plan (using a visual indicator, e.g., Gantt chart).
