At the core of the program is an extensive, independent research project on an agreed chosen topic, supported by at least two expert academic supervisors. This research component is enhanced by professional development activities or coursework units that provide you with the skills required to make an impact in academia, industry, government or the wider community. Your study will result in a research thesis or alternative approved output, which makes a valuable contribution to the current body of knowledge on your chosen topic.

On completion of the program you will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of relevant research techniques in your field through a review of the relevant literature. You will demonstrate your ability, under supervision to apply these techniques to your chosen field of study.
