Research seminars for postgraduate students (Sem 1)
This course is divided into two sections.
The first section focuses on a series of discussion based on the students’ actual research topic. Topics to be examined and discussed include the selection and the significance of the research topic, relevant literature review and theories, field research and interviews and problems arising from it and methods of assembling data collected.
The second section involves seminar-style presentation by academic and postgraduate students. This will enable the students to learn from different styles of presentations and benefit from comments given during the seminars.
(* – The order in which students take semester one and semester two parts of this course may vary depending on the date they started their MPhil/PhD programme.)
