We understand that many students have a strong desire to have their results and/or thesis published in scientific journals or healthcare institutions, as this can hugely benefit the profile of the student in their professional field. 

Please be advised that students are allowed to go forward with publications prior to the submission deadline of their Professional Project. This would, indeed, add additional strength to the project if a student could demonstrate that they already have results published, and this would not infer the potential mark in any way. 

Please note: all ethical requirements must be officially in place and granted prior to publication, whereby a statement is provided to illustrate that the work 'was undertaken towards the requirements of an MSc in [Subject] at the University of South Wales'

Should you require any further information with regards to this at all, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Services Team, who will be happy to assist, or contact the relevant teams if necessary.
