You will undergo the “Dissertation and Research Methods” module through this Top Up programme. Students are required submit their dissertation along with the research proposal. This proposal needs to be approved by the supervisor.
The Research Proposal
Students will be required to submit a research proposal which outlines the research objectives and how to achieve them. Once the proposal has been submitted, feedback will be provided by the supervisor. He/she will then discuss what changes and refinements – if any – are required. Supervisors guide students through the minefield of research, and to act as a mentor and source of support.
The dissertation provides the opportunity to investigate and diagnose a factual human resource issue or problem, to collect and analyse relevant data, to derive supportable conclusions, and make recommendations for change and improvement. The dissertation can adopt either a theoretical or empirical perspective.
We offer a study package for students who do not qualify to join the top up but wish to accumulate qualifications towards the top up. For example:
