1. Writing the research proposal for Masters and Ph.D. studies

About this course:

Many students, regardless of the race, class, and gender, find it challenging to write an acceptable and fundable research proposal. At the same, the majority of universities are getting stricter when admitting both masters and Ph.D. students, requiring students to prove beyond doubt that the student’s proposal is feasible. Hence, students are forced to present in various committees to sift good and bad proposal.
