It will help progress higher level research in your chosen field, while supporting the development of your own professional practice.

Your bespoke programme is designed in agreement with two supervisors and can include fieldwork, study days, seminars, short courses, working weekends, tutorials and the use of Web 2.0 technology. This should mean that your study fits in with the needs of your working life and career.
