You should maintain contact with S/V at least monthly, by phone, email or eLearn.
In your Dissertation Proposal you will set your own detailed work schedule and intermediate deadlines.

Throughout, you should maintain a detailed logbook of your investigation.
The logbook is mainly for your benefit, but we will ask to see it when you submit your Report.

The Dissertation viva will be by telephone or video conferencing as appropriate.
