How to make MFNP-012 (MSCDFSM) Project

Easy five-step process to make and submit your MSCDFSM project synopsis & report

Step 1: Download and Read the MFNP-012 Project Guidelines / Manual

Before attempting to make your MSCDFSM project, It is important to read the project manual that is sent to you as part of your study materials. If you did not receive it, you can also download the MFNP-012 project manual by clicking the button below. 

Step 2: Get details of your MSCDFSM Project Supervisor / Guide

You can get the details of your MFNP-012 project supervisor by contacting the coordinator of your study centre. Most projects must be undertaken under the supervision of the project supervisor. It is only after you get the approval of your supervisor can you submit your project to IGNOU for examination.

Step 3: Create and Submit your MFNP-012 Project Synopsis / Proposal

A synopsis is a brief summary of the project that you intend to make. It is essentially a description of what you propose to do in your MSCDFSM project and how you intend to go about it. Usually, it should be 1000 words in length (approx 10-14 pages). It should be developed and approved in consultation with the project supervisor. The synopsis for MFNP-012 should include major sections like: The title, the rationale behind the proposed topic, objectives of the study, review to relevant literature, outline of the research plan and methods used to complete the study. It may also include a chapter outline and preliminary bibliography. Once the synopsis / proposal is prepared, it must be approved by your supervisor. Once it is approved, you must send a copy of your synopsis to IGNOU in Delhi to the programme co-ordinator or in some cases via email to the regional center. The exact address and details are in your project guide/manual.

Step 4: Create your MFNP-012 Project / Dissertation Report

While you wait for a letter of approval from your MSCDFSM programme co-ordinator, you can already begin making your project. Sometimes it may take over a month to hear back from IGNOU. In the worst case, if you do not hear back after repeated attempts, you can try to submit your project directly along with the synopsis again. Once your synopsis is approved, you can now begin working on your project. The project report is usually 10,000 - 15,000 words in length. (approx. 80-100 pages). It should have a cover page, various annexure formats, a table of contents, acknowledgment, and the main sections. It must also contain a bibliography at the end. The deadlines to submit are usually 31st May for June Exams and 30th November for December Exams.
