Module overview

If you successfully complete the taught component of the programme, then you will be allowed to progress to the MSc dissertation equivalent to 60 CATS/30 ECTS, which can be completed over a 3 months period during summer (usually mid-June to mid-September). However, if there are extenuating circumstances that prevent you to complete the requirements of the taught modules at the June Examination Board but are eligible to take referrals in the supplementary/referral period (Aug/Sep), then you may progress to the dissertation project.

The dissertation module will provide you with an opportunity to undertake an independent research project which will lead to the production of a systematic research document of professional standard not exceeding 15,000-20,000 words. There are wide ranging flexible options to choose dissertation project topics making use of the global health expertise across the University and the Global Health Research Institute at Southampton
