This module block has been designed to guide students through the key activities and concepts, which need to be undertaken and applied in the production of a written report at postgraduate level. The students are encouraged to reflect upon their approach whilst constructing their report, through continual feedback in tutorials, developing skills that will help in the re-evaluation of the decisions they make, drawing upon theory and its relation to practice. Students will produce a short appraisal of their self-reflection to accompany the completed report. This module will enable students to apply concepts which they have studied in the complementary modules on the Generic Pre Masters programme element.
