By the end of this module the student should be able to:
1. Identify an appropriate area of study and carry out necessary suitable investigation to complete agreed method/s of assessment
2. Negotiate individual aims and learning outcomes
3. Undertake a comprehensive review of the literature
Content will depend on individual learning outcomes agreed
