2.7 Research-related employment which overlaps enrolment
Research associated with the thesis should normally be completely separate from any work undertaken as part of part-time or full-time employment. It is acknowledged, however, that separating paid work undertaken for a group or collaborative project which may contribute, even indirectly, to a student's own work for the research master’s degree may be very difficult.
Any prospective student whose paid work and research for the thesis may overlap is required to meet certain conditions when applying for enrolment. These requirements are set out in Appendix B in this Handbook. See also Chapter 11 for links to forms for a declaration where research undertaken in relation to employment overlaps with enrolment.
