Module overview

The dissertation module provides a context within which research skills can be developed. It provides the opportunity to apply and demonstrate the skills and knowledge acquired throughout the taught component of the MSc programme.

The dissertation by research is a hypothesis-driven small-scale empirical research project involving quantitative or qualitative research methods and may be laboratory based, data analysis/bioinformatics or a systematic literature review. Students are supported to identify a project and supervisors aligned to their interests.

Dissertation projects are undertaken over a period of approximately 4 months (full-time students) or 10 months (part-time students), with submission in late September.
