In our department, we're required to present our study proposals for comment before submission to Higher Degrees. This allows for the group to give feedback for final corrections in the hope that the proposal is accepted without having to make major revisions.
This is the proposal presentation I gave to my department a few days ago. The feedback I received, although mainly editorial, means that the structure of this content is not the same as it will be in the final submission e.g. the Method has received another step in the process.
