Hi all,

I'm currently writing my proposal but struggling, I'm an Arts student and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be splitting the proposal into research question and project?

I think the usual format is giving the research question, and proving (through a lit review and timescale) of how you will develop the process to that research and answer the question. State the question, then propose the plan (which could include the project). You'll need to prove that your research question is unique by glossing over what has been established in that field, and what hasn't been established or thought of before. Several universities give examples of passable research proposals (google it), across both sides of the pond :).

Thanks for the response Nad75!

I've had a look at a couple of proposals but these aren't for practice-based research, the one that I had managed to find on google seemed quite informal and definitely not what my supervisor is looking for. I'll have another look though.
