The principal aim of this unit is to provide the students with an advanced understanding of qualitative research methods so that they can evaluate, design and successfully undertake complex postgraduate qualitative research projects in any setting.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
