Course Aim

At the end of the course, the advanced student will

  • Be able to find articles and/or other materials and produce a review of the literature
  • Be able to form a hypothesis and research questions
  • Be able to design, carry out and report on a study related to their specialisation


The goal of this course is to enable the student to gain in-depth understanding of an aspect of EFL language education that has been negotiated with their supervisor. They will apply their knowledge of research methods to investigate an issue identified during a Directed Reading Course.

Students should have completed a directed reading course before they begin this course. This course is likely to be taught 1:1 with a specialist teacher, although they may be invited to join a study group. Students will be expected to find their own materials with guidance from the teacher. The student will hand in drafts of the essay for feedback. No defence is required for this project.


Individual reading, written assignments (parts of the essay)
