A research proposal is a key opportunity to "sell" your research idea to research funders or sponsors. The proposal should clearly describe your research question and how you plan to answer this question. In order to write an effective proposal, there are steps to follow and key points to think about. In this course, Naomi Algeo, an Irish research scholar, provides a detailed guide to writing a qualitative research proposal.
The course aims to provide the tools and knowledge to write an effective qualitative research proposal.
