                                 INTRODUCTION




1.1    Background to study

[First Paragraph doesn’t have indent] This document has been set up to assist students
in preparing the text of their research proposal. It is NOT intended as a document to
guide you through your research proposal development, but to assist you in setting out
the proposal, in terms of text layout, section headings and sub-sections. [Paragraph
style]. Select Navigation Pane in to navigate the whole document.


       [Second Paragraph have indent] The Research Proposal is a complete
description of the intended research, developed under the supervision of the assigned
supervisor. Through the full proposal, the student needs to demonstrate convincingly
that the study will make a contribution to an issue or problem. The full research
proposal must be between 5 and 10 pages.


       How to use this template: The template provides ALL the sections, headings
and subheadings that you will require in your proposal, as well as the line and
paragraph spacing, page breaks, page numbering, referencing system and referencing
styles. You should simply edit the text where appropriate and insert your own text as
per your proposal, i.e. simply type into the document. Do not attempt to change the
styles for the headings or subheadings, and do not attempt to use more than three level
headings (i.e A main heading, a sub-heading and a sub-sub-heading).
