Course summary

Course Overview

You can begin this programme at any time of the academic year, as agreed with your supervisor. You will define and manage an independent research project which will equip you for more sustained and original work at the doctoral level, or for advanced level applied research positions in a range of organisations.

The programme is flexible to support learning in a variety of educational and practical research contexts: either on campus or in industry.

There is a period of induction with a project supervisor where you will complete a learning plan and assess your research training development needs.

At the end of the third month (full-time) or sixth month (part-time) you will submit a report which will enable your supervisor to offer formative feedback on your writing skills, progress to date and ability to synthesise information.

Finally, you will complete a dissertation based on your research.
