Important Update (16th Jan 2009):
Deadline for dissertation is the last working day of March according to the online Regulations page on the UOM website.


This page contains information about dissertation, especially for Year 4 students who normally need to complete their dissertation in the second semester by the month of March in 2009.

Here’s the dissertation proposal form for 2008/09 that you will have to fill in the preliminary stage.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday 19th September. I will give some explanations tomorrow Wednesday 10th September in class. Also, hopefully, my two other colleagues, Ms Paroomal and Dr Kasenally will come for a short meeting next Wednesday (17th Sep). In the meantime, you are encouraged to discuss your potential theme/topic with any of us before finalising your topic.

Important Update (19th September)
The deadline has been extended to Friday 26th September. The meeting will be held most probably on Wednesday 24th if my other colleagues are available. Otherwise, you can still contact any of us by e-mail.

FINAL ALLOCATION
Below is the list of students per supervisor. Kindly note that Mr A. Chenganna will act as co-supervisor or adviser in some cases. You will be informed by your respective supervisor.

ABOUT THE DISSERTATION
You may have a look at the following online resource which gives some good advice about how to proceed. The resource is meant for Geography students but 80% of the advice given is also applicable to you.

I would also strongly advise consulting the Regulations section of the UOM website, especially the page devoted to dissertations.
