Applied learning - Live projects

The course involves you completing a 15,000 word dissertation (60 credits) on a subject of your choice, within a framework of independent learning and research. This might be primary research, a systematic/critical literature review or service development.

Initially, you submit a proposal for academic approval. This rigorous formality ensures that your work meets all the criteria for a dissertation. Once approved, you can begin your dissertation and have up to three years to complete it.

Before you can start the dissertation, you need to have completed a postgraduate level research module. If you have not previously studied one, you can take our research methods for practice module (15 credits) and a 45 credit dissertation (12,000 word dissertation).
