How to Write a PhD Research Proposal
28 Oct 2019

Successful PhD research requires preparation, planning, critical thinking, and dedication. On this course, you will explore the key elements in a research proposal and solve common planning and writing challenges.

You will learn how to structure, define, and present your research idea in writing. You will develop your own research objectives and sub-questions and outline the context of the study. You will also learn how to manage a project. This course focuses on health sciences, but the content of the PhD proposal and the planning process of a research study is relevant to other disciplines.

  • Defining the research idea and writing a research statement with objectives and sub-questions
  • Identifying and writing a literature summary and review
  • Empirical, conceptual, or theoretical foundations of a research study

  • Evaluate and use what you have learned by submitting and receiving feedback on your proposal draft each week
  • Evaluate and reflect on your work with help from your peers, course educators, and mentors
  • Collaborate with your peers and find ways to solve possible challenges during your PhD studies.
  • Explain how you will organize and structure your PhD
  • Identify previous relevant research to discover gaps and why your research matters
