This course is aimed at individuals about to embark on a large piece of research. Whilst the aim of the course is not to teach a specific research method, it focusses on developing an overall understanding of the research process, design of research projects and provides handy hints and tips on do’s and don’ts for researchers. The course will help you in structuring writing a research proposal that will include all the necessary elements expected by research centres, Higher Education Institutions and research supervisors both locally and internationally.
