depending upon the preference of the candidate (and subject to the supervisory guidance). You will select an aspect of the marketing literature that may be of specific interest to them and will write their dissertations in the final academic term, they will normally have completed the taught element of their course before attempting the dissertation and will not be permitted to undertake the dissertation unless the "Research Methods for Marketing" module has been successfully completed
and passed. The research proposal written for the "Research Methods in Marketing" module will form the basis of the dissertation for the final project so both modules are intrinsically linked.

When you arrive, we'll introduce you to your academic advisor. This is the member of staff who will provide academic guidance, be a support throughout your time at UEL and who will show you how to make the best use of all the help and resources that we offer.
Each year you will spend around 300 hours of timetabled learning and teaching activities. These may be lectures, workshops, seminars and individual and group tutorials. Contact hours may vary depending on each module.

- Year 1: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours.
Your individualised timetable is normally available to students within 48 hours of enrolment. Whilst we make every effort to ensure timetables are as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week between 9am and 6pm.
