Course content

This course aims to promote research and scholarly activities across all schools and subject areas, enhancing the quality and volume of research and encouraging knowledge transfer into the community. This strategy encourages partnership and collaborative research with fellow academics and public and voluntary services on a range of issues including health, education and community and professional development. Normally, the research proposal is negotiated by the candidate with a member of the research supervisory team. Research students receive a level of support not commonly available in larger and less community-based institutions.
