96737 Research Project 2

12cp; Individual; regular supervision with academic mentor.



This subject, together with 96736 Health Research Project (Part 1) offers an opportunity for advanced training in health research, facilitating individual and effective learning, through a thesis or research project component in public health or nursing. Students independently investigate an issue of relevance to public health or nursing and learn how to structure and investigate research problems and questions. This includes the application of appropriate qualitative and/or quantitative research methods, the critical assessment and summarising of the existing body of research as well as the development of complex arguments, based on their research findings. Students develop their public health communication skills by presenting their work in written and oral form; the principal activity of this subject is a journal article manuscript.
