Professional Project

The professional project module provides you with an opportunity to consider an area of interest in greater depth. It should illustrate your ability to analyse and synthesise relevant research literature, present arguments supported by relevant evidence and logical discussion and acknowledge sources of ideas and information. The fundamental requirement for this aspect of your programme is that the work is well planned and presented.

  • A Professional Project can be undertaken as part of most of our Masters degree programmes. To check if it is available within your degree, consult the course structure pages for your programme (from the Masters A-Z)
  • To aid you in your decision about whether to study for a dissertation or professional project please see the guidance in your current student handbook or consult your course director
