Support for students from the RGS
Many geography students complete a dissertation, or other substantial research project, in their final year of study. The Society is compiling a selection of resources to help students plan projects, collect and analyse appropriate data, draw conclusions and present work well. These resources are accessible remotely and focus on secondary data, acknowledging that primary data collection may be problematic at present. This list of online resources to aid online student research is dynamic and will be updated over time.
