A research dissertation.
An evidence based practice module containing two summative assessments, usually of relevance to your current workplace – which runs in October each year.
A consultancy report, usually of relevance to your current workplace.
Whichever option you choose this module will consist of an independent project designed, planned and carried out by yourself and written up in a minimum of 15,000 and a maximum of 20,000 words.
You will be provided with appropriate individual supervision to support your independent study.
