why is it important1
Why is it important ?
  • Indicates your abilities to select, research and then present a substantial piece of work that displays your intellectual abilities to the full.
    • A well-written project is a useful document to display to a potential employer when you enter the labour market. In any case, the skills that you will have deployed are particularly useful should you wish to undertake work for a higher degree at Masters or at PhD level.
    • Moreover, the fact that you have researched and organised a substantial piece of work is a skill that you will be asked to deploy on many occasions in whichever career you choose to enter. You will have learnt to ‘project manage’ a substantial piece of work and learn the techniques associated with writing and assembling a large document and these skills will assist you when it comes to similar ventures in the future.
