Synopsis

The student will work and study at the same time as determined by a pre-agreed and assessed workplace work-based project proposal that articulates the expected personal, professional, academic and organisational contributions that should be achieved upon the conclusion of the project. With the guidance and support of a supervisor(s), the student will study appropriate literature, and may elect to study other post-graduate level course, to gain the necessary theoretical knowledge and capacity to support their study. This course is required to clearly embed the student's practice in relevant and up-to-date academic literature which would typically be across disciplines. The insights that the student will gain as a result, will not only enhance their experience and expertise through locating their disciplined enquiry in relevant theory but will provide greater rigour in support of their findings and contributions to practice. The student will, where necessary, develop appropriate research instruments based on the adopted methodology relevant to their study in order to collect appropriate data for analysis in providing evidence-based outcomes to their study. The course will be a pass/fail course.
