The Assessment Task

  1. Research Proposal:  Students are required to write a proposal that is feasible for a doctoral level piece of research, considering the University’s research degree requirements, the time-scale and other potential considerations. They must also provide a thorough understanding of the relevant ethical  implications for their chosen area of research, considering the selected methods, approaches, and the University’s relevant ethical guidelines and requirements.

You should submit a 2000-word research proposal. You will need to start by identifying the problem (through the mini literature) and then discuss how the problem will be solved using your proposed solution. Your proposal should address a research problem that you have identified within your own organisation or another organisation to which you are able to gain access. You will need to consider the theoretical as well as the practical implications of the research you want to carry out. You need to develop a short review of the relevant academic literature that underpins your research. You need to justify your proposed methodology and provide some details as to how you propose to collect data and why this will answer your research question. The following sections are examples of what the proposal should include:

  • Introduction
  • Literature review
  • Research Gap & Research Questions
