Section 6 of the research degree application form

Section 6 asks for your intended research proposal - it "should include an abstract, the research objectives, the proposed research methodology, a summary review of the relevant literature and current understanding or knowledge and an indication of how the proposed research will contribute to the discipline. You should also provide an outline work plan for the period of research including consideration of approval of any research ethics implications. You are also asked to comment on why you wish to pursue this research and what you feel you will bring to it."
That is not something simple (which is why the maximum is 3 sides of A4). It is however very important. Please contact me for some more details on the topic and the project that will help you write it. You should not be afraid that what you write will be binding - it is not.
There are no research ethics implications by the way.
