Final Presentation day, 29 May
The way we structure the day is that each of you is given a 45 minute slot for an aural presentation, with 15 minutes total for set up and presentation of the points discussed above, and 30 minutes discussion from a panel of informed external guests on both the content and the presentation of the thesis as it stands. These presentations are public – anyone can attend. As well as this, usually over lunch, you are given the opportunity to discuss in-depth the written report with an external reader who has seen the material before, who has a relationship with the field of study you are interested in. 45 minutes each is set aside for this meeting, which consists of a discussion led by questions from the reader about the text. These meetings are private, between reader and students.
