It's a summary of what you intend to present, so it only needs to be short - most of my submissions have been a max of 250 words. Are you confusing the actual paper with a proposal here? There's no way a conference organiser would have the time to wade through 25 sides of writing for each proposal/presentation. Just give the overarching summary of what your paper/presentation will cover - any particular methodologies if appropriate, what the key points of your paper is etc - effectively, it's an abstract for your paper.
How is it that everytime I tell someone what method I'm using, they try and convince me that I need to take a different approach? Which then makes me feel - am I doing this all wrong?
And why do I feel that I'm faking it, every time I talk about my research I think that people are thinking "She's got no idea, why is she up there talking rubbish???"
Finding a funded PhD with a 2:2 will be very difficult. It will be easier to find a fee-waiver scholarship than one that includes living costs. Given that you are the beginning of your Masters, I would suggest that you work your arse off and get the best grade you can. If you don't feel that you are capable of achieving a good grade at Masters level, then a PhD may not be the best thing for you.
I suspect TennieV is the same Tennie V from Vitae, so may be sourcing opinions for Vitae? ;-)
I have to say, I've not heard of 'Roberts Training' but again, a range of courses/workshops have been provided by my Uni on a range of topics - some more useful than others. :-)
