Write an Interim Submission of the Investigative Essay
In 1000 words you must write an interim submission for your investigative essay. This must be relevant to current issues in the built environment and your overall topic must be agreed with your supervisor.
This should demonstrate that you have formulated clear ideas around your investigative essay and have made significant progress in advancing and researching this.
The interim submission needs to offer:
- A suitable title for the investigative essay
- A Rationale that justifies the chosen topic, problem, and title
- An aim and objectives
- A line of argument
- Literature Research. This section should discuss two key sources you have selected and give a brief summary of the argument and your critical reflection upon this.
- A programme of key dates, showing your plan towards submission of the final investigative report
You must ensure the interim submission has a suitable structure, has good English and grammar, and is referenced following Harvard style.
A potential structure could include the following (this is not prescriptive or exhaustive, students may choose a different structure)
Rationale: A discussion of your line of argument and the justification of your topic and title
Literature Research: This section should discuss two key sources you have selected and give a brief summary of the argument and your critical reflection upon this.
Programme: A programme of key dates, showing your plan towards submission of the final investigative report

Referencing requirements for the assessment
Statements, assertions and ideas made in coursework should be supported by citing relevant sources. Sources cited in the text should be listed at the end of the assignment in a reference list. Any material that you read but do not cite in the report should go into a separate bibliography. Unless explicitly stated otherwise by the module teaching team, all referencing should be in Harvard Referencing style. You may want to consult the referencing style guide at Cite Them Right (oclc.org)
