Issues and Trends in Research Methods
Credits: 4 ECTS
This course provides insights into research design, methodology and implementation. Sessions will alternate between the presentation of examples of mature research projects and the method applied, and the students’ own research designs and method. It is the bridge between the training undertaken thus far in the Master and embarking on the dissertation project during the final semester and into the summer of the second year of the programme.
- Presentation of pre-assigned research design and method: 20%
- Dissertation research proposal and its presentation: 50%
- Discussion of another student's dissertation proposal: 30%
