Dissertations always have a literature review. This should not just describe things you’ve read, but organise your reading and identify themes, gaps, problems, etc.
‘The School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences has set up a Research Ethics Committee (REC) to conduct an ethical review of all research projects in the School involving human subjects. Ethics approval will be required for all such research conducted either by staff members or students. Approval must be obtained prior to the commencement of data collection and cannot be applied for or granted retrospectively. Obtaining prior ethical approval for research involving human participants is an essential requirement for the acceptance of MPhil dissertations’
‘Application for ethics approval involves the applicant submitting a completed standard application form, along with supporting documents, to the Research Ethics Committee by the specified submission date. Six hard copies, as well as an electronic version, must be submitted by applicants.’
