The research proposal should be a concise outline of the subject of the thesis, with a working title, and include an indication of the methodology to be adopted and the sources to be used. It should be no more than 2 pages long, so be selective, consider the focus of your research, and what the main outline of your thinking is. Therefore, it should have a well considered title, an acknowledgement and brief discussion of the sort(s) of approach your work will take in terms of a framework or methodology (e.g. archival/historical, empirical/policy based, qualitative/quantitative) and the particular question or questions you want to examine. A bibliography at this stage can and should only be limited, but we want to see reference to the relevant literature of which you are already aware, and some sense of that which you expect to be able to consult.
Please note we will search for and allocate appropriate supervisors.
