You will have submitted a draft research outline with your application. In your first year, you will be working towards submitting a more complete research proposal. You will be aided in your research by meeting with your supervisory team to discuss your progress. You will also be supported through your first year by engaging with a series of four modules:
- RSDP4001: Developing as a Researcher
- RSDP4002: Approaches to Research 1
- RSDP4003: Approaches to Research 2
- RSDP4004: Planning Your Research Project
At the end of each year, beginning with your first year, you will reflect on and formally review your progress with your supervisory team and MPhil/PhD Course Leader. We call this annual meeting an Annual Progress Review (APR).
