Professor Alison WESTON.
The aim of the Research Seminar is to present a framework for the preparation of the required Master's Thesis and to guide and assist students in the process of researching and writing. The main 'learning outcome', i.e. the expected result of the seminar, is a completed Master's Thesis that meets the requirements of the Department. Of course, the seminar per se cannot "guarantee" a satisfactory thesis since the final product is expected to be an independent piece of work by the students, who always bear the ultimate responsibility for its quality.
