The impact of extra curricular activities on the employment opportunities of graduates?
The aim of the assignment is to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your research skills and your ability to identify and critically evaluate your findings. Your research provides the evidence to support your critical analysis on the topic and your sources must be relevant, current and reliable.
It is important that you access a range of literature, including academic sources such as journal articles, quality press and relevant websites in the field.
Once you have carried out your research of the literature, you need to bring your materials together and use them to help you present a review of the impact of extra curricular activities on graduate employment in your discipline.
All your sources must be referenced using the Harvard Referencing System, both in the text (author and date) and in more detail in the Reference List.
