The literature review component of your research project is all about giving you the tools and guidance you need to source and synthesise appropriate research, and in doing so produce a high quality research proposal of your own. You will be supported as you undertake a literature review, which will form the basis of the introduction for your final research project, and provides training in both discipline-specific and generic research skills. The literature review/introduction component of the research thesis will consist of a description of your project, a detailed review of the relevant literature, and a statement of the research hypotheses to be tested.
