Brief Description

Indicative Syllabus

 

This project will require a significant amount of research and group organisation. You will need to identify the roles and responsibilities of team members which will need to be agreed and managed. At set times during the year groups will present on their progress and be given formative feedback by tutors.

 

The project is integrative in that students will be expected to draw upon their learning on other modules. This will include recognition of the influence of important external factors as well as internal constraints in achieving the goals of the project. An evidence based application of frameworks like PEST and SWOT is expected.

 

The outcome of the project will be a group presentation accompanied by an individual report containing a number of realistic and persuasive recommendations. Written coursework will include appraisals of lecture content relevant to the project and a concluding reflective statement.
