Module Description

This module is designed to help you gain an understanding of research approaches and skills, as well as the ability to deploy research methods in your studies or professional life.

If you have to conduct research as part of your postgraduate studies and if you would like additional support for self-improvement, then this module is for you.

It provides a comprehensive introduction to research methods and covers broad topics, including the fundamentals of doing research, research methods, research design, data collection and data analysis.

In discussing each topic, the ethical implications of research will be covered. Research is a craft and, like any other craft, takes practice to do it well.
