Back once again for the renegade Masters (Sadly not the Fatboy Slim remix).
It’s been a while since the last update but I’m heading towards the end of the project, and my time at University. So I thought I would give you all one last account of my experiences studying and researching for my project.
So the first part of the project and presentation went by pretty smoothly. All the advice that I’ve been given and mentioned in previous blog posts has really helped so far in meeting my deadlines and producing the best work that I can.
Practising my presentation delivery a few times so that I understood everything on my slides really helped and allowed me to clearly convey the pertinent sections of my project within the allotted 20 minutes.
For the rest of my project, I’ve had to liaise with a lot of people from different companies and industries. Again, I needed to organise my time well to ensure that I could get the work done before I asked for their advice and so I would suggest having good lines of communication not only with any extra-University contacts but with your tutor as well.
Then there’s putting all your research and work into a readable format after the caffeine-fueled hours in the library. Fortunately as I’ve got an interim report from the first part of the project, I can hopefully use this as a base to work from.
All that remains is to complete the statistical analysis on the data (so the actual Maths element of the whole project). *WARNING* This involves a lot of frustration and tantrums at getting computer programs to work so I’d highly recommend becoming comfortable with any software that you’ll need to use.
If anyone has any questions about studying for a Masters, feel free to leave a comment.
