Module Convenor: Professor Tim Lockley
In this 15 CATS one term module, visiting students will be able to complete an independent research project based on their own interests, under the supervision of an expert staff member in the department. This will enable visiting students to experience the Warwick research culture as part of their time at Warwick, and will enable them to undertake study in areas where modules are either full or unavailable to them, at an appropriate level.
This module is only available to visiting students with the relevant pre-requisite knowledge and skills from their home institution. Students will normally be expected to be a History Major, usually of either 3rd or 4th year standing (where a student is from a 4 year degree programme). The previous completion of a module in a relevant subject area, and a module on historical writing or research methods, would be expected. Students’ suitability for taking this module will be determined by the Module Convenor in discussion with the student and the potential supervisor. Supervisors will not usually be expected to supervise more than one student per term.
