Student and supervisorWhat do I do?

You will research, learn and write largely following your own initiative, under the direction of the academic supervisor(s).

You will see the supervisor(s) formally at arranged times each term to discuss progress etc.

Your supervisor may set preparatory pieces of work, e.g. producing a bibliography, presenting a draft plan.

Supervisors can read through and give feedback on a draft version. This can either be as each section is completed in first draft or once the whole thing has been drafted – arrange with your supervisor(s) whichever is felt to be best.

The work can be a traditional text-based dissertation presented in paper or electronic form, or a combination of a practical element and written critique.

The nature of the Independent Study will determine the most appropriate media for presentation – consult with your supervisor(s).

There are no rules for the details of page layout, referencing styles, binding etc. Consult with your supervisor(s) to agree on what is appropriate. Often this will follow the usual requirements and guidelines for dissertations in the department(s) of the suprevisor(s), but it does not have to as far as Independent Study is concerned. If you need presentation guidelines, some are available.
