While individual students might complete the elements of this component of the program iteratively rather than sequentially, it is expected that the following elements will normally be completed by students working in close consultation with their supervisors: For students completing the DISSERTATION - Writing and presenting a confirmation proposal; If appropriate, conducting a pilot or small-scale study; Collecting and analysing data; Writing successive versions of the chapters constituting the disseration. For students completing the FOLIO - Writing and presenting a confirmation proposal; Conducting and writing a formal research report; Writing an analytical thematic statement; Completing one or two other components as required for the folio.
