At the end of your first and second years you will prepare a 10,000 word document that contains a review of relevant literature and summarises findings from your empirical work conducted in that year. You will also take part in a Post Graduate Research conference in which you make an oral presentation of this work to the Department. The submission of the 10,000 word document in particular helps you prepare for the writing of your thesis.Students within our Department of Psychology submit a dissertation of up to 80,000 words. We take pride in our completion record with our PhD students. We achieve this, in part, by ensuring from the outset that you follow a clear path to ensure completion within three years – with specific appropriate milestones at the end of your first and second years.
