Projects, dissertations and reports

Projects, dissertations and report-based assignments often require you to work more independently than when writing essays. They are a good test of your problem-solving skills, resourcefulness and self-reliance.

Use this interactive online module to:

  • Find out about the different types of research assignment, learn how to choose an appropriate subject and manage your project effectively;
  • Learn how to conduct a literature search and review, formulate your hypothesis, create effective questionnaires, manage research interviews and analyse your data;
  • Guidance on writing up each stage of your research, from the opening section to your conclusions and recommendations.
