The dissertation is the test of the Master’s degree standard. The purpose of the dissertation is to contribute substantially to the research training aim that is appropriate to a taught Master’s programme. To achieve this aim the student is required to demonstrate an understanding of the philosophy and principles of research (empirical or non-empirical) and show competence in the design, execution and reporting of a research project. In this way the student’s ability is developed to carry out subsequent research independently and to commission, manage and evaluate the research activities of others. The dissertation may be empirical or non-empirical in nature.

This module is available as a core module within all master’s courses in Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences for which there is a 60-credit dissertation.
