The aim of this module is to allow students to identify and propose a research project in an area of mutual agreement with their supervisor within sport, health and exercise sciences. With the support of a supervisor students should aim to develop a relevant and original research question. Students will be required to gather and review the relevant literature, establish hypotheses, propose a methodology to test hypotheses, indicate the statistical methods to be used to analyse the data, expected results, predict problems in data collection, recognise and plan for ethical issues and estimate the financial cost of the proposed study.
Students will be asked to identify a research area and, with the support of a supervisor, identify an appropriate research question. The subject content will thus vary but will be congruent with the degree programme being studied. All students are required to gather relevant information from the research literature and review it, establish hypotheses, propose a methodology through which these hypotheses might be tested, indicate the statistical methods to be used to analyse the data, predict problems in data collection, recognise and plan for ethical issues and estimate the financial cost of the proposed study.
Learning outcomes: students who successfully complete this module will be able to, with the support of a supervisor: demonstrate an understanding of the processes involved in generating a viable research question; design a study to test a specific question; effectively communicate their research proposal orally, demonstrating an ability to answer questions about the proposal following the presentation; present a written report that effectively communicates the completed, viable, research proposal and their understanding of it.

Strategaeth addysgu a dysgu
Supervisory support will form an important part of the teaching method, but ultimately, most of the learning will be student-led.
