Credits:  20

Assessment: 

1. Oral presentation of research plan (30%)

This module aims to equip you with the skills needed to conceive and design a feasible research project in the area of Public Health and Population Sciences. You will select a project supervisor in consultation with the module co-ordinator. You will meet with their supervisor to develop a research proposal for the project (in the area of Public Health and Population Sciences) to be carried out in Semester 2. You will meet in seminar groups
to discuss project ideas and development. If necessary, ethical approval for the proposed project will be obtained and scoping work (e.g. familiarisation with local policy and practice) undertaken. At the end of Semester 1, you will give a 10-minute oral presentation of the research proposal to the group. You will also submit a written research proposal. You will work under close supervision and have tutorials with their supervisor on a regular
basis.
