After 20 months of studying psychology with Liverpool University, I'm finally embarking on my dissertation. This represents the final stage of my MSc. My proposal should be approved within the next month which will be accompanied by an ethics approval.
After this, I can get started on the research, with the final deadline being in May 2020. The proposed project involves investigating how the father-child relationship influences the decision of students from a socio-economically deprived background to apply for and attend university. Hopefully it will be approved!
It's both exciting and daunting to arrive at this final phase, but I'm hoping that it will be a stimulating and rewarding experience.
