Make notes about what you are reading and what issues you uncover that are interesting

You may also need to include a timeline for your study as well as funding information and ethics clearance if required

Explain to your readers exactly what you are going to do in your study; background, what problem will it solve, what contribution

Define some key concepts and definitions, especially terms that come up frequently in the area of your research

A thesis statement which clearly identifies what you are going to study and how that research will address the problem identified

What’s the significance of your research; if you need to apply for funding then this will be critical

You must orientate your research in academic work and show that there is a gap in the literature which you will address

Your method describes the route you will take through your study to get it done, the techniques you will use

Describe what instruments you will use as well as any ethical considerations that need to be incorporated in your study

Your proposal is like a contract; you have written down what you are going to do, your institution commits to supporting you


Description

"Peter brings a wealth of experience from his PhD and presents it in a way that is easily accessible. Focussing on the fundamentals and then drawing those principles through to the final proposal. Especially useful are the real life examples from his own studies." - Prof Ivan Hofsajer

In this course you will learn exactly what goes into a research proposal so that your research will be approved and you will have created an excellent ground work for the rest of your study. The more effort you put in to your proposal document, the better prepared you will be for the next stages of your degree. In this course are lessons, assignments, quizzes and much more; not only will you learn how to complete a research proposal but you will also make progress on your own proposal.

  • Learn the importance of background reading and how to use questions and note taking to be more effective in covering the relevant literature

  • What goes into a proposal and a free checklist that you can use to confirm whether you have covered all the requirements

  • I'll walk you through my own successful PhD proposal document so you can get inspiration and see exactly what I did at that stage of my study

  • Approach your proposal by answering 3 questions: What are you going to study, why are you going to study it and how are you going to do it

  • There are lessons and assignments for each of these 3 aspects and you will actually make progress by working on each of these sections

  • There's a whiteboard lesson which gives you an overall approach to your research proposal and an overview of everything you need to know

  • In another whiteboard lesson I'll teach you the important of good thesis statements and how to create one

  • A good thesis statement is like a North Star for your research; if you do it really well it will guide you through to successful completion

  • Learn how to approach doing a presentation of your proposal; you can even use the assignments you complete in this course as talking points

  • I'll walk you through my own proposal slides so you can see exactly what went into my presentation with my supervisors and industry experts

  • You'll be able to introduce yourself and see everyone else's introduction, where they are from and why they are taking this course

  • Learn the importance of taking notes when you are doing background reading and how this links with questions you have created to guide you

  • Learn the importance of defining a problem statement, research questions, key concepts, definitions and explanations of what you are studying

  • Answer the question of why are you doing this research; the motivation for it, the significance of the contribution that you will make

  • Answer the question of how you are going to do your study; the academic methods, practicalities, instruments, type of research, ethics etc

I look forward to seeing you in the lessons and reviewing your assignments so that you really can make actual progress on your own proposal, while also putting into practice what you have learned in this course.

I really enjoyed this course and Peter offers great advice and guidance for those who lacked coaching in their degrees. I enjoyed how versatile the information put forward was, however students need to be aware that requirements differ between faculties. I'm from the Health Faculty and our proposals and presentations are slightly more complex, but overall a helpful course.
