Progress report 1 from all students

By now some people will be very well advanced in their planning whilst others will still be struggling. The most important aspects to focus on apart from your general area of interest are: your aim your objectives.

These may be very short but should reflect the consultations you have had with interested parties and a thoughtful approach to your area of interest. It should show that you are shaping your first ideas into a realistic aim and a set of practical objectives for either the full dissertation or the purpose of the literature review or short epidemiological study required from Diploma students.

You should also be thinking about what you will learn, and what skills you will develop. Do they meet your longer term needs?
