This needs to be submitted in the usual way but using the specific coversheet found on the Forms section of WebCT. (for registered students) 

Although the absolute deadline is shown on the timetable it is recommended that you develop your protocol, and submit it for marking by your supervisor, at as early a  stage as possible. Once it has been formally submitted you cannot ask for another version to replace it.

Submitting early will maximise the time available for carrying out the work of your dissertation.

Your protocol is assessed by your supervisor and up to 40% of your final mark is awarded for this piece of work.
