Students should develop the arguments critically and not simply describe. Secondary research required. No primary data is allowed to use.

Harvard referencing should be used and all references are to be shown in a “Reference section” at the end of the report.

Students are expected to use minimum 12 peer reviewed academic journal articles as part of their critical evaluation in main body of report.


Assessments must be all your own work and must not have been copied in part or in whole from any other source, such as books or the internet, or from other students’ work. If you wish to use another author’s exact words in a short quotation this must be clearly marked up in inverted commas with the exact source given, including page number, so that the reader can clearly see which words have been copied and are not your own. Just quoting references used at the end is not sufficient.

Please see your course handbook or the Faculty website for more information on referencing and university regulations on plagiarism.
