Aims/Description: The unit, which is supervised online, enables students to develop an understanding of the processes and the skills required to undertake a supervised research project in health care. Having successfully completed the unit, a student will be able to: demonstrate researcher skills commensurate with the achievement of a Master's degree; demonstrate independence of inquiry; produce a cogently argued piece of writing that demonstrates researcher competence and the ability to operate independently; address issues of research design, methodology, ethics and theoretical arguments, and locate their own research in relation to these issues.

Staff Contact: Muhammad Saddiq
Teaching Methods: The teaching methods aim to give the students the confidence to undertake an original piece of research with the support and guidance of supervisors.
Assessment: Project work
