Your Short Dissertation will provide you with an opportunity to study a chosen topic. It will build on previous learning and will reflect a knowledge base which has both breadth and depth, and which is integrated and applied to professional practice. The Short Dissertation will therefore have an ‘applied theory’ focus. Based on a systematic critical review of the relevant literature, it will demonstrate skills of reflection, synthesis, and problem-solving.
Is this course for me?
The dissertation will normally form the final part of the relevant degree programme. However, where appropriate it may be permissible for students to commence the dissertation when not more than one of the taught modules of the programme is still outstanding.

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
