Advice on research proposal for Cambridge Mphil IR

    • Thread Starter


    Can anyone give me some advice on how to go about writing the research proposal? I'm thinking of applying for the Mphil in International Relations. What should you focus on, what could be good topics etc.? I'm interested in Middle Eastern politics and have some knowledge of the Arabic language, so any advice on how to incorporate this into a research project?

    Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you

    No one will tell you a topic for the research proposal, you have to find it by yourself. The best advice is to read more articles in the subjects you find interesting.

    I'm not asking for a specific topic, just for suggestions on how to go about getting started etc. since I've never had to write anything like this before.
