To allow students to demonstrate the ability to apply the knowledge, skills and understanding gained on the programme to a specific empirical or theoretical focus within an individual project or dissertation.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Meetings with supervisor are designed to support the student during the process. This interaction is likely to comprise meetings as part of a small group of dissertation students and others on an individual basis.
Private study recognises that the extended project offers the student the opportunity to practice managing a relatively major investigation independently and to synthesise and apply knowledge gained.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Aural Examination||3||M||Ongoing feedback provided by supervisors face to face/by email|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The dissertation is the written evidence of the student's ability to plan, conduct and report an in-depth investigation concerned with the core themes of the ICE programme.
