This course is intended to develop the skills of self-directed study, critical reflection and responsibility for your own learning. It provides opportunities to develop such skills while allowing you to negotiate topics you wish to study.
You can do a mini project to prepare for your dissertation, which could be a literature review, a service evaluation, a mini quality improvement or a pilot for your dissertation design.
You can also take this course as an independent course if you would like to write a paper under the supervision and support of one of our senior academics.
