Student Information


The BIX project will count as the dissertation, which is the core component of a master’s programme. 

Each BIX project will have a supervisor from our industry partner who will be responsible for the day-to-day supervision of the project. In addition, there will be an academic supervisor who will monitor the project, provide assistance in the event of difficulties and act as the first marker for the written project. 

Students will have access to a budget of up to £1000 to use towards research costs. This will be spent jointly if there are multiple students working on a project.


  • Early October: Available BIX projects are released to students. Interested students submit an application of interest and are then vetted. 
  • Mid November - Students begin to think about how to approach their research project. 
  • December / January - Students submit a project proposal for their academic supervisor to review.  
  • Third Term - Students submit a draft of the project for their academic supervisor to review.   
  • Mid-late August - Students submit the final project.   
  • August – September - Students deliver either a presentation or a short report to their industry partner. The report should be approx 2-3 pages and have a front page with an executive summary.
