Perhaps the most exciting part of your degree programme, the dissertation component allows you to focus in depth on a child or maternal health topic of your choice.
Worth one-third of your total degree, it provides an opportunity to build on and extend the knowledge you have gained during your core and optional modules, examining in detail areas that interest you or which will have relevance to your future work.
10,000–12,000 words & mid-year poster presentation on the research background and plan = 60 credits
