Podcast: Digging Deeper – Projects

Posted on: 19 March, 2021

Episode 6 of Digging Deeper looks at the Project module our Level 6 students work on.


Our latest cohort of Level 6 students will soon be tackling the Project module – a two-semester research module culminating in a 10,000-word dissertation. To help those students prepare for the module, we sought perspectives from UCEM staff and students.

UCEM academic delivery manager – projects, Jon Hubert, and module leader for the Undergraduate Project, Hazel Lobo, gave an overview of the Project, as well as their advice for students from a tutor’s and marker’s perspective.
