Demonstrate your research skills at an advanced level
The dissertation module is designed to provide you with an opportunity to undertake an in-depth individual study in an area of interest that could be relevant to your nursing practice and could enable you to demonstrate research at an advanced level. The study will be independently undertaken, but in the process, students could take advantage of the supervision we aim to provide.
Within the study, you will be expected to demonstrate understanding of the research process, including ethical, theoretical and methodological issues associated with your particular subject and to demonstrate critical evaluation. It will build on the foundation provided by previous modules on the course.
Throughout this Masters Dissertation, you will have the opportunity to:
Identify a research question and objectives and choose an appropriate research method
Design a study which is congruent with the research question and methodology and demonstrates competence at each stage of the research process
Produce a report of your study which shows critical analysis and evaluation and includes interpretation of findings, conclusions and recommendations/implications for practice
