Regular consultation with the supervisor of the thesis, within the broad University guidelines on conducting research, will be the norm for conducting research and preparing the thesis. Thesis weight: 50%; length of the thesis: 10,000--12,000 words; examination of the thesis: by two examiners, one of whom should be external to the supervisor's School.
