Timetable for Masters students

  • Start early
  • Work consistently
  • Aim to finish early
  • We cannot emphasis enough that leaving your analysis and discussion until the last minute will have an adverse impact on your work

Be realistic!

  • Work out how long it will take you to conduct each element. For example, planning to collect data overseas will very rarely be feasible within a one year course.
  • Leave plenty of time to reflect on your findings: weak discussions in dissertations are often the result of a hasty write-up.
