MCP students are to complete a research report comprising a literature review including their research question, method section, analytic plan and research timeline including relevant details of their research. The total length of this initial project report must be no less than 2000 words. MCP/PhD students will complete a systematic review prepared as a manuscript for submission, including introduction and aims, method, results and discussion sections. The length of the systematic review will be determined by the area reviewed and journal guidelines, but should be at least 3000 words. These assessments will facilitate the write up of the thesis.
