This course is primarily aimed at recipients of Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships KESS Funding where students focus on field research in partnership with an external company. This course can also consider self-funded applicants who are already in possession of a masters level qualification (or practical work-based experience) and who have a suitable background in research methods. You may have a specific research aim in mind and will be ready to carry out independent research leading to PhD level study or be seeking a stand-alone research based qualification suitable for a career in research with transferable skills for graduate employment.
It is the normal expectation that the independent research (120 credits) should be of at a publishable standard in a high quality peer reviewed journal and you will receive support from your supervisors to support you in that aim.
