The Dissertation is the single largest piece of assessed work undertaken by the student and is designed to further develop the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course. The Dissertation provides students with an opportunity to conduct a sustained and intensive investigation into one topic and to present their findings in a formal manner in accordance with academic conventions and the requirements of the subject. Appropriate ethics committee approval will be requested (students should note that approval from relevant ethics committees may be a course requirement).
The content of the Dissertation will vary according to the individual interests of the student but will fall within the broad parameters of the students course. The Dissertation requires the student to conduct an original piece of research. The securing of ethics approval and the selection and application of suitable research methods is an important part of the exercise and the Dissertation should engage critically with issues of research ethics, methodology, method, evidence-based practice and analysis.
