Spanish Structured Research

Over the course of the programme, students will take between 30 to 35 ECTS worth of taught modules, at least one of which (minimum 5 ECTS) must be dedicated to research methods/integrity. Other taught modules will normally be discipline- or area-specific and designed to augment students’ existing knowledge in their specialist area. The modules taken by each student will be decided in direct consultation with their research supervisor.

Students will complete an independent research project or dissertation weighted at either 55 or 60 ECTS (depending on the number of ECTS devoted to taught modules). Each student will be assigned a primary supervisor and a graduate research committee made up of experienced researchers to plan their programme of study and to provide on-going support for their research.
