Module code


This module aims to further advance your knowledge, skills and ability to conceptualise, create, implement and evaluate new approaches in your sphere of professional practice. You will develop a substantive piece of work (a 40,000 word thesis and viva voce examination), synthesising the learning from the associated Professional Doctorate modules, and demonstrating your ability to increase the knowledge base underpinning your discipline.  To facilitate your progression, a structured approach, with formative assessment (in addition to supervisors ongoing oversight of drafts and progress), is utilised; it is anticipated that this will promote your confidence and competence as you progress from third year to fourth year.
