Modules

The independent, empirical study of an issue of health, disease or healthcare utilising appropriate research tools is central to the programme and consequently accounts for one third of the total assessment. Carrying out first hand research provides an opportunity for the students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in the rest of the programme, in particular the research methods modules and the practical modules. Therefore, students are required to choose a dissertation topic that relates clearly to their programme specialisation. This module is compulsory for all students following the MSc programmes. The successful completion of the dissertation project is an ideal starting point for further research in health care including audits, health sciences or a doctoral project.
