In order to submit a Research and Analysis Project to Oxford Brookes you must have a Project Mentor. Your Project Mentor is there to support you with the preparation of your Research and Analysis Project, by providing advice and feedback to you at appropriate times during your Project activities. They will also be asked by Oxford Brookes to confirm that they have been your Project Mentor and that your Research and Analysis Project is your own work.
Oxford Brookes requires that you have at least three meetings with your Project Mentor, each of which would normally be about 30 minutes in length. If your Project Mentor agrees, you could have additional or longer meetings, but you should negotiate this before you start your Research and Analysis Project work.
The Project Mentor meetings should focus not only on the planning and research needed to prepare a good Research and Analysis Project, but also on the opportunity for you to develop skills in listening, questioning and presenting your findings. Oxford Brookes suggest that your planning for each meeting includes the preparation of an agenda of issues which can be covered in the time available to you. Focus on the key issues and identify the desired outcomes from the meeting. Take notes to record the actions needed to progress your Research Report and to contribute to your reflection for your Skills and Learning Statement.
