Successful projects provide students to undertake independent research when they arrive at university. Minerva Tutors have vast experience of independent study and are available to advise students on honing their research skills across a broad range of subjects.

They must be aware that emotional bias may cloud their judgements. For example, a geography project on homelessness may become a personal moral plea rather than an academic objective investigation.

Are they expected to undertake original primary research? Or should the research compromise of study of existing resources, that is secondary research?

Is it likely to have been superseded by more up to date material? What methods did the research utilise to reach its conclusions? Did it take a sufficiently large sample size?

How does a small local quantitative investigation, conducted with intense academic rigour, compare to a global overview written as an opinion piece for a national newspaper?
