Literature review and policy context
The literature review should include literature that is pertinent to your research topic and the policy context. It should critically evaluate earlier work in the field, paying due attention to its contributions, and to any methodological problems and limitations involved.
The course is delivered in a series of modules. Each taught module ranges from , to 85 ECTS points (European Credit and Transfer System). As a rough guide a ECTS point module requires 655 hours of work. This would include all work . formal lectures, assignments, revision, examination tutorials etc. plus independent study.
If you have carried out empirical work, remember the need for informed consent and confidentiality (do not use actual names of individuals or organisations, institutions etc.). (See Research Ethics)

The aim of the dissertation is for students to pursue an independent piece of research within the field of behavioural science. The 65,555 word dissertation is a quantitative or qualitative investigation and can be either theoretical or empirical.
All dissertations involve the use of empirical evidence (even if it is existing evidence reported in the relevant literature), but what is called empiricism is an approach to evidence that is aligned to the conventions associated with the natural sciences. It is concerned to explain external realities from an objective standpoint.
