RESEARCH METHODS

You have been successful as an undergraduate and you have enjoyed your studying, so why not go on to postgraduate study? Many universities now cater for both full time students and part time students, those combining their study with other work, paid and/or domestic and there is a wealth of both taught masters courses with research elements usually in the dissertation (often between 20-30,000 words), and PhD EdD (Educational Doctorates) or PrDs (professional Doctorates), some with elements of coursework as well as the lengthier research opportunities of a thesis (between 60,000-100,000 words).

This area offers practical advice on postgraduate research and is supported by activities and reflections that can help you develop your skills and focus.
