This 12-point unit is primarily designed for postgraduate / higher degree by research students. The unit consists of any combination of modules of existing units (i.e. modules 1 and 2 of EDF 6005, 6006, 6007, and 6008) or other approved content. This unit is normally only available to students studying within a course cohort. Additional information about the specific combinations of modules and approved content are provided in the study guide for each cohort. The overarching unit guide will direct students to the discrete cohort study guides.


Staff using EDF6009 should be able to specify outcomes that are equivalent to outcomes achieved in existing units of methodology suite. These are likely to include outcomes or module 1 (i.e. core unit), outcomes from other modules, or other approved outcomes. The overarching unit guide will direct students to the discrete study guides for their cohorts where the specific combination of outcomes are set out.


Work requirements which explore research issues and problems comprising 8000 words that meet specified objectives.
