Course content

This MHealth Res focuses on the production of a substantial piece of work in a chosen specialist area of interest which is negotiated upon entry to the course.

The programme will equip you with extensive knowledge and understanding of the research process, research methods and methodologies. You will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate a deep and advanced knowledge of your specialist topic of study and evidence-based practice while engaging in independent research practice to a high standard.

This will ultimately translate into you designing, delivering and evaluating a research project from inception to successful completion, with the support and guidance of experts in healthcare practice.

What will I study?

The programme begins with two distinct 30-credit research modules which cover advanced critical appraisal skills and clinical research methods.

These modules are undertaken at the start of the programme in order to develop your research skill-set and advance your knowledge of best practice, as well as enhance the techniques most relevant and useful to your research proposal.

On completion of the two opening modules you will have acquired an advanced understanding of how to develop, manage and conduct your dissertation. The remaining two-thirds of the programme are then devoted to undertaking specialist study in your chosen subject area, culminating in a written thesis.

How will I study?

Initially, you will attend classes in research methods and project design, development, planning and management.

Thereafter, the programme is primarily delivered by individually tailored supervision from one or two specialist tutors, with regular meetings taking place either face-to-face or online.

How will I be assessed?

The taught research modules are assessed by critiquing a health research paper (written and oral presentation) and by the development of a research proposal. This proposal can then feed into the dissertation which is assessed through completion of a 25,000-word thesis and a viva voce examination.

Who will be teaching me?

The programme is delivered by a core team with specialist expertise in clinical research methods, research project development and the philosophy and ethics of clinical research.

What are my career prospects?

The programme has been developed in response to drivers that require professionals in health and social care to develop an evidence-based approach to practice.

An MHealth Res qualification will significantly enhance your CV and improve your future employment prospects while also equipping you with an array of research skills to help develop your professional practice.

The skills and experience acquired through the programme also provide essential preparation for progressing onto higher research qualifications, such as MPhil and PhD.
