Philosophy undergraduate dissertation proposal
If you are a finalist and have selected either 6AANC000 Dissertation or 7AAN6005 Dissertation (for MSci Physics & Philosophy) for the next academic year, you must complete the form below to register your preferred dissertation topic(s).
This information will be used to allocate you to a suitable supervisor.
PLEASE NOTE: you MUST complete this form by the deadline for online module selections as detailed in the online guidance for choosing your modules.
In the form below you should provide a ranked list of up to FOUR selections from the available dissertation topics (1=most preferred). Each topic must be one you would be happy to write a dissertation on. Please think carefully about your topic preferences, as you will be assigned a supervisor on the basis of them. Please be assured that there will be plenty of time to work with your supervisor to refine your plans.
For further information please also see the dissertation supervision & advice page in the Student Handbook.
How are supervisors allocated?
Places with a supervisor on each topic are limited. We will do our best to accommodate all first choices, and then take into account second choices and so on. In cases where demand outstrips places available on a particular topic, places will be assigned randomly: students who have indicated only one topic choice will not be privileged in such cases.
Once all ranked choices have been accommodated, if you have not been allocated a supervisor for one of your chosen topics but there are still places remaining elsewhere, you will be offered a place with a supervisor for one of these other subject areas. You may then choose either to take up one of these places, or to revert to your back-up module choices.
It is important to check your email in the days following the module choice deadline, as we will need to allocate any remaining places quickly.
Topics may be withdrawn at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances.
