The coursework will provide critical evaluation of research and presentation, develop the student's knowledge and understanding of statistical analyses techniques as applied to scientific research and develop an awareness of research proposal design and background. Students are required to attend compulsory coursework sessions as stipulated in the University teaching timetable and in the course timetables provided by Course Convenors.

Research component

Students are required to find a suitable supervisor for their research project prior to submitting their application for admission into the program. Students who are unable to locate a suitable supervisor should discuss their proposed research project with the Program Director.
