develop a research question within the topic you have selected and adopt a specific point of view in regard to it. The terms of your point of view should be clearly stated at the outset (that is, in the ‘Introduction’ section of your essay) and kept constantly in mind so that all research is directed toward gathering relevant information. The essay should develop and substantiate your ideas and arguments in a logical and coherent manner before presenting a concise and supported conclusion. Where appropriate, assumptions and definitions should be clearly stated and explained.
The essay is to be between 3,500 – 4,000 words of body (i.e. excluding executive summary, table of contents, references, appendices, etc.). Care should be taken to follow the guidelines presented below, particularly with regard to report style and referencing. It is envisaged that a report will have at least 18 unique references from a variety of quality sources.
