‘A Beginner’s Guide…’ (http://bit.ly/RTfpyO) pp.61-62 offers four ways of composing your title:

1. As an overall statement of the topic, e.g: ‘Career advice for students with special educational needs’.

2. As the specific issue to be researched, e.g: ‘Gender and sport: views of boys and girls about competitive physical activity in school’.

3. As a question, e.g: ‘How can design of a school library encourage children to read?’

4. As a memorable phrase, possibly drawn from collected data: e.g. ‘“It’s all rather scary really”: School students’ perceptions of university education’.
