As with the PoE's on other modules, students will be required to go through the initial stages of becoming acquainted with the PoE. This includes all the checks and acknowledgements.

The RTAP dissertation is uploaded to the PoE in the same manner that Assignment Three is uploaded on other PoE's. 

The dissertation itself needs to comply with the stated requirements regarding presentation, referencing and plagiarism. Please refer to the PoE to see a copy of these requirements. 

Please note that topics change from time to time, and are only communicated with your PoE. You need to ensure that you have followed the instruction booklet.

The dissertation document is uploaded as a single text-based .PDF document. Students are able to make ONE upload only. Students must ensure they have followed the instructions on what type of PDF document is excepted or risk their dissertation being marked as invalid.
