A number of activities will be carried out in your workplace and are aimed at evidence-gathering as well as improving employability skills appropriate to your work environment.
Self-evaluation is an important part of your learning throughout this course and for all modules (except the Masters Project) you’ll produce a critical reflective commentary justifying your approach.
You’ll be able to demonstrate the required depth and systematic understanding of knowledge in applied areas and across areas, and the ability to work with theoretical and research-based knowledge at the forefront of your academic discipline.
