It enables the students to demonstrate the advanced research skills they have acquired and applies them to a discrete body of evidence related to an identifiable area of historical enquiry. It is an exercise that is necessarily accomplished with considerable independent thought and consideration, alongside the support and guidance of an appropriate tutor, who will facilitate student learning and direct the project where necessary. The dissertation requires various stages of formulating, critical analysis, researching and writing to complete a substantial piece of work.
