Learning to write research proposals is one of the core skills academic scholars need to learn to master. There is no single format for research proposals, as every research project is different. In addition, different disciplines, donor organisations and academic institutions all have different formats and requirements. There are, however, several key components and sets of criteria which must be taken into account when writing successful research proposals. This intensive one-day workshop course deals with these key issues.


Course schedule:


09.15-10.00         Introduction to key issues raised in the student pre-assignments

10.00-12.00         How to get everything in place? A lecture on the coherence between research questions, methods and types of data.

12.00-13.00         lunch

13.00-16.00         Group work, discussion and feedback on participants ongoing proposal writing.
