||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||During this final year, students can opt among a number of proposed reflective elements such as a written dissertation (either current or historical) a casebook or a portfolio. Before beginning the written reflective element, an assignment of 10-15,000 words, a detailed proposal must be submitted and approved by candidates' supervisors.
This element of the programme will require a high level of commitment and application from the candidate and provide a valuable exercise in writing and presentation of information to an appropriate academic standard in relation to style, tone, structuring and referencing.
Supervision for the written reflective element of the MSc will be provided by staff employed by the University of Edinburgh, usually from within the programme teaching team. However, candidates will also be encouraged to work closely with senior staff at their home institutions, within their workplace or with local conservation organisations where a suitable academic link exists, to provide to provide additional advisory support if appropriate.
