Some of our courses offer you the chance to complete the Practice Track instead of a dissertation.
Unlike a dissertation, the Practice Track is a practical project with a real-world organisation. It gives you the chance to demonstrate your skills and expertise in a different way.
You’ll work on a real-life consultancy or research-based project with one of our partner companies, gaining practical experience as part of your degree. The project could be a challenge faced by the company or an extension of current research for an organisation. You may even further your own research to complement the company’s aims.
You can work as part of a small group or on your own to complete the Practice Track.
