This module will be delivered via:
- One 2-hour lecture per week (over 5 weeks in the autumn term).
- One 2-hour lecture per fortnight in the spring term.
- One 1-hour class/seminar per week.
The lectures will give an overview of key themes and to facilitate your own independent thinking.
The classes/seminars will provide additional guidance on the development of the research proposal and in which you will receive feedback on your ideas.
Students will be encouraged to engage in participative learning with presentations and group-work.
In addition to attendance at lectures and classes, students are expected to engage in private study for a minimum of 10 hours per module per week and to work a 40 hour week throughout the programme.
Each of the lecturers have academic support hours every week, which you can find on the Essex Business School PGT Moodle page. During these hours, you will be welcome to come and discuss various aspects of the module or your assessment.
Whilst we endeavour to provide you with any advice we can, it should be clear that we are not there to tell you what the ‘answers’ are regarding the assessments. For this reason, it is extremely important that you start thinking about your assignments in good time. The more work you have done before you come and see us, the more fruitful the discussion will be.
