This course covers research methods, statistics and broader research skills and will enable students to design, conduct and write up robust research studies. Students will conduct two substantial research studies in a topic of their choice, supervised by experienced members of academic staff.
The course is suitable for students with a varied background in research methods. There is a choice of two research methods modules, one for those with little or no background experience of research and one for people who already have some experience of research, perhaps at undergraduate level.
Employability & Careers
A postgraduate qualification in health or social science research provides an excellent foundation for a career in research, as a health professional who carries out and publishes research in their field, or for anyone planning to go on to complete a PhD.
Evidence based practice means that a knowledge and understanding of research is essential in all health related domains so that health care providers are able to interpret previous research findings, as well as contributing to the process of designing and carrying out research projects.
A good honours degree (normally 2.1 or above) in a health or social science subject is normally required. However, applicants with relevant professional experience or qualifications are welcomed and will be considered individually.
