Research Methods

This course assists you and your supervisor in devising a training programme that meets your own very particular needs; gives you vital information about University processes and procedures; and helps you to understand your research work in its professional and academic context. Also, this course provides the opportunity for all Mres/MPhil/PhD/Professional Doctoral students to meet and work together for a short period. Research work can sometimes be rather lonely and your discussions and debates are mostly with your own supervisor or immediate team. The opportunity to learn from others with a totally different perspective or even to link up with others dealing with the same agenda as yourself can make a major contribution.
