MRes Research Project
Rhedir gan School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences
120.000 Credyd neu 60.000 Credyd ECTS
Semester 1 a 2
Trefnydd: Dr Anthony Blanchfield
The aim of this module is for students to complete 120 credits of research activity as part of a research project. To this end, four assessments are completed: a written proposal, verbal proposal, a written project and a verbal presentation of the final project
The content is student/project specific and will depend on the work the student does with his/her supervisor
The student’s work will demonstrate: a good degree of original interpretation; good re-construction and critical analysis of material; the use of recent research perspectives; and good depth and breadth of understanding. The communication style will be precise and concise with minor typographical or other errors. There will be very good referencing of primary source material where appropriate.
A and above: The student’s work will be of a standard that is close to that which would be acceptable for submission for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. This will involve original interpretation, critical analysis of material, the use of recent research perspectives, and will demonstrate excellent depth and breadth of understanding. The communication style will be precise and concise with very few typographical or other errors. There will be comprehensive referencing of primary source material where appropriate.
A- and above: The student’s work will be of a standard approaching that which would be acceptable for submission for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. This will involve some original interpretation, critical analysis of material, the use of recent research perspectives, and will demonstrate very good depth and breadth of understanding. The communication style will be precise and concise with reasonably few typographical or other errors. There will be comprehensive referencing of primary source material where appropriate.
The student’s work will demonstrate: some original interpretation; some evidence of extensive and thorough study; reasonably good reconstruction and critical analysis of material; the use of recent research perspectives; and reasonably good depth and breadth of understanding. The communication style will be acceptable with likely some fairly minor typographical or other errors. There will be good referencing of primary source material where appropriate.

Strategaeth addysgu a dysgu
In this module, a heavy emphasis is placed on independent learning. The module is therefore driven by the supervisor and the MRes student. The student should work autonomously while maintaining frequent contact with their supervisor in order to design, plan manage, analyse and report the research project(s) in a way that is reflective of the scientific process.
