Current students are investigating topics such as the services for young carers; multi-agency working within the area of substance misuse and the social exclusion experienced by older people in care homes.

Assessment methods

A thesis of no more than 100,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva).
