Applied Research II: Final Project (Q9131)

30 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

This module draws on all the skills and knowledge gained from the course thus far. Students develop their own projects in response to a specific set of ‘real world’ challenges or problems. They are asked to select one from a number of briefs, some of which have been devised by industry partners based on the challenges to which they are currently developing solutions. The project could take a wide variety of forms: from prototype solutions to activist campaigns, lecture series to documentaries, exhibitions to creative writing. Students will be closely supervised and mentored throughout this process. Particular skills and needs will be addressed in a bespoke way using the university’s resources and those of the Liberal Arts Advisory Board.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 300 hours of work. This breaks down into about 44 hours of contact time and about 256 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

We regularly review our modules to incorporate student feedback, staff expertise, as well as the latest research and teaching methodology. We’re planning to run these modules in the academic year 2024/25. However, there may be changes to these modules in response to feedback, staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let you know of any material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
