University of Aberdeen
Research Methods for Health
Applicants will usually need to possess a health-related Honours degree (at a 2nd Class level or at least 60 per cent or GPA 3/5; 2.4/4; 6/10 or equivalent) or be able to demonstrate evidence of equivalent experience in health care practice/research. They will also require reliable internet access. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'postgraduate standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
Modules include: fundamentals of research design; epidemiology; evidence-based health; applied statistics.
All assessments within the programme are completed and delivered online. There are several different types of assessment used throughout the programme including formative and summative assessment (MCQ, online tests, essays, presentations, peer review).
