Good luck to M102PY students submitting their research ethics proposals today

I am looking forward to reading your research proposals for the dissertation project, and will be keeping a closer than usual eye on my email inbox today in case you have any trouble with submission.

Remember, what you submit today will be marked by your supervisor, who will give you feedback on anything that could be done to improve your plans. You will get this advice within two weeks and will have a chance to edit your submission before it goes out for anonymous review by the university ethics committee.

Hope it goes well.
