A research degree is examined on the basis of a piece of research presented in the form of a thesis submitted within the prescribed period of study. The production of that thesis is, therefore, your main task. In order to undertake this work you will need a well-focused research topic and a research question or hypothesis, a knowledge of the existing secondary literature on the subject, a well-thought out methodology for tackling the research, and the ability to produce a well-structured argument, lucid and well-presented prose. Many ancillary skills may be required to do this: language proficiency, information technology and digital literacy skills, the latest theoretical and methodological approaches in your discipline, to name but a few.
