1. Introduction

This policy outlines the requirements for the submission of assessment, for directed independent learning for Postgraduate Taught Master's students.  The directed independent learning can take a variety of forms, chosen to be the most appropriate for the programme, and/or to enhance the employability prospects of the students.  This can be defined at programme approval and will be equivalent to the effort required to prepare a dissertation of up to 20,000 words.

Colleges should inform students of any requirements regarding the submission of directed independent learning in the College Handbook, including advice on the general layout (if different to the guidance below), referencing conventions and any subject/discipline specific requirements.
