The research proposal

The experience of putting together a research proposal, whether as a "theoretical proposal" or something you can test out "in practice", can be an exciting and rewarding opportunity to develop and apply your research competencies.

It can also be rather daunting and you might be finding getting started more difficult that you thought.
So, do you have questions about some aspects of your research proposal such as:

  • What topic do I choose?
  • How do I develop my research question?
  • How do I get to grips with the literature?
  • What avenues are there available to recruit my participants?

If your answer to any of the above is yes, then download the student resource, 'The research proposal', - it might just be the catalyst you need to get things started.
