Central to the course is the dissertation, which allows you to explore, in detail, your area of literary interest. You will take part in one to-one tutorials and the supervisor will offer advice on developing appropriate study methods and provide feedback on drafts of the dissertation. Within the course you will take part in student-led symposia. These will give you the opportunity to present and exchange ideas on other students’ work. These sessions lead to a study proposal that gives a detailed description of the dissertation topic. The symposia encourage discussion, cooperation and the sharing of problems and solutions.
