      Hi people, I am due to submit my research proposal for PhD in Education, though I have presented my research proposal in front of the faulty, in the University, but a large percentage of the possibility of admission depends on the submission of a hard copy that should be written and formatted well (meeting research level standard). I have been browsing about what should be the format of a research proposal and it has made me even more confused since nothing that I found on the internet pertained to my field, my research presentation is on the Role of outdoor play and activities in early childhood education. Since the University has not provided any specific or detailed outline for research proposal that is why I am seeking help, any sort of suggestion in formulation of a research proposal would be helpful.

      Hi! A research proposal submitted is generally required by University, to check plagiarism content (if any), gauge the amount of originality that the idea holds, check your capacity and capability, in not only presenting but also writing about your research. Therefore this would require more attention as well as work than while presentation. A research proposal methodically outlines and answers the three question of why how and what that research envisions. Even if you belong to specialize field the broad headers remain the same and you are required to elaborate your research ideas and methods underneath them. Basically answer the questions of ‘Why” do you want to pursue that very particular topic, “How” are you going to approach this topic and lastly “What” will be the contribution of this topic in the larger literature (existing ) in this area/ discipline. By the time you have answered these questions, you will have formulated a suitable research proposal. Undoubtedly, a proposal is much more than this but these steps would definitely get you started on the right path.

      Hi, I am not an expert in the discipline of education but it seems that this is your first attempt at writing a research proposal, as you are aware already, it’s a technically and precisely written document that needs to articulate in brief the extensive research that you would undertake subsequently. Since it’s a matter of admission, your proposal is going to be the testament of your capability and potential to carry out research and do justice to that positon of a scholar. Long thing short the proposal should be drafted and written well enough to convince the university panel on your behalf. Therefore it would be good to get some help with the writing of the proposal, there are a number academic writing services that provide help to budding scholars with their research writings. They would provide you with the best guidance. I personally had availed the service from Ukdissertation Forum ( of the following institute that provided prompt guidance online, maybe you could refer to them too.
