2. In the second element, the student must explain the methodological framework, including description of data and/or sources, reflection on methods of analysis, as well as relevant ethical and practical issues.
3. The third element comprises the project’s analysis and conclusions. This element must include discussion of the results of the analysis in relation to the problem formulation. The conclusion must include reflections on how the host institution could use the findings of the project.
Finally, the student must revise and join all three elements in one coherent project report to be submitted for a combined assessment.
