Course Modules: 

MED-6013E  (20 Credits)

This course builds on the quantitative methods covered in Introduction to Research Methods. It will add depth to the basic knowledge already acquired in that module on measurement, survey instruments, study designs and statistics. Students will also take part in practical sessions where they will apply the statistical knowledge gained to describe and analyse datasets.

MED-6024F  (20 Credits)

In this module students will focus on communicating the work they are undertaking and the rationale for it. Students will consider writing for peers and for the public, preparing abstracts, posters, papers and grant applications and giving oral presentations.
By the end of the module students will have:

  • Written lay and professional abstracts
  • Assembled a poster
  • Given a presentation
  • Prepared a grant application

MED-7023D  (20 Credits)

The purpose of this module is to provide students with a broad introduction to the methods used in Health Science Research. The skills to be developed include being able to:
1: recognise basic quantitative and qualitative research designs 
2: recognise different data collection techniques 
3: acquire a basic understanding of both statistical analysis and qualitative analysis 
4: critically appraise the research literature.

MED-6023X (60 Credits)

In this module students will focus on communicating the work they are undertaking and the rationale for it. Students will consider writing for peers and for the public, preparing abstracts, posters, papers and grant applications and giving oral presentations.
Learning outcomes:
By the end of the module students will be able to formulate hypotheses, write protocols, assess literature, acquire, analyse and interpret data and will have developed the cognitive abilities required for these tasks.

Course Structure:

This is a one year degree. As part of this intercalated BSc, students will complete 3 compulsory taught 20-credit modules: ‘Introduction to Research Methods’, ‘Further Quantitative Methods’ and ‘Transferrable Skills’ alongside a 60-credit research dissertation module.

Assessment:

The research project is evaluated by double marking of the submitted dissertation. Introduction to research and further quantitative methods are evaluated by written examination only and transferrable skills is assessed by evaluation of an oral presentation.

Teaching and Learning:

This degree is taught by a mixture of methods, primarily didactic lectures in the introduction to research methods module supported by online resources. Socratic teaching and active participation in computer laboratories best enable training in software usage, as well as skills acquisition in the further quantitative methods module and in the small group teaching of transferrable skills which also contains some seminars. The research project is mentor led and supported by face-to-face tutorials with expert researchers.

Important Information:

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.
