MA students are required to write a dissertation. Enrolment and registration of a research topic should be completed by 31 January of the final year. In deciding upon a topic, you should consult the relevant dissertation co-ordinator and the prospective supervisor.

Once you have had your dissertation topic approved and made contact with a supervisor, your supervisor (not the MA Convenor) is your first port of call for dissertation matters. At MA level, dissertations are usually completed in the summer months of the student's last year. Submission date is 15 September of the final year.
