Students can begin this programme at any time of the academic year, as agreed with their supervisor. Students define and manage an independent research project which will equip them 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 students will complete a learning plan and assess their research training development needs. At the end of the 3rd month (full-time) or 6th month (part-time) students will submit a report which will enable their supervisor to offer formative feedback on their writing skills, progress to date and ability to synthesise information. Students will complete a dissertation based on their research.
Upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in a relevant subject. IELTS: 6.5, although lower grade admissions may be possible via separate pre-sessional English courses.
Assessment methods include original research and dissertation.
