How do I find a topic?

In many cases, you will find your topic through the examples on the website. Sometimes you might be able to take these proposals as inspiration for a similar topic and find a supervisor who agrees to take that on. Many topics are very open, you will need to narrow it down to something that really interests you and is manageable in consultation with your supervisor.
During the initial stages of selecting a research area, you may find it helpful to think about the modules and topics that you have enjoyed studying in the past, and which you would like to find out more about. Similarly, you might think about the different methods and approaches that you have been introduced to, and try to see if they could be applied to a new topic. Since you will spend about a year working on your FYP, it is crucial to select a topic that will sustain your interest

Once you have a rough idea about a possible topic, you should seek out a supervisor. This is your responsibility, and it is important that you make it a priority, as faculty are only able to supervise a limited number of FYPs. Once you arrange supervision, you should discuss how to go about your project, and which methods and approaches are suitable.
