Full-time students complete their dissertations in the summer of the year in which they are enrolled. Part-time students complete their dissertations in their second year of study. It should be 18,000 words long including footnotes but not the bibliography.
The dissertation should be submitted with coversheet to Patrizia Oliver, 33-35 Torrington Place, room 1.3 in addition to an electronic copy uploaded via Turnitin by 4pm on Monday 2nd September 2013.
The first piece of assessed work for the Core Course is an annotated
bibliography / literature review defining a subject area or approach that will
become the focus of the dissertation. This 4,000 word piece will be due
according to the SELCS (School of European Languages, Culture and Society)
deadlines, see the Coursework Submission page. Writing this piece of work will
help to define the topic of the dissertation. Students should chose a supervisor
fill in and submit a Dissertation Supervisor form by the last day of term two.
Students should have a minimum of three supervisory meetings to discuss their
research and early drafts. For more advice on the dissertation follow the
links to advice for MARS students:
- Presentation (We do not insist that it be spiral
- Style and the Mechanics of Writing
In the Summer Term, students must give a presentation on the topic of
their dissertation, lasting no more than 10 minutes, for an audience of staff
associated with the programme and fellow EMS students.
