Research project 1: foundation

This module aims to provide students with an opportunity to properly plan and prepare for their project, including the understanding of the practical and professional requirements of the research. This includes the demonstration of the required ethical research standards, and the appropriate approval of the research by a Research Ethics Committee.

All areas of professional research conduct in psychology, in particular the evaluation of research design and the ensuring of ethical standards
Students will be given a choice of research themes, and (with suitable support and resources from the researcher leading the theme), will develop and demonstrate understanding of the proposed research by completing a detailed research plan for their chosen theme.

The plan will include detailed explanation of:

  • how professional standards will be met (including ethical approval, consent and data storage)

On successful completion of this module, you will be expected to be able to:
