This course provides education and practical training in the design and delivery of surveys and the reporting and presentation of survey results.
Students will work, in groups, on a research project of their choice. The research project should be on a subject that is relevant to their chosen degree discipline and must involve the design, delivery and analysis of a survey instrument. At the start of the semester, students will attend a lecture programme that introduces them to survey research and design, sampling techniques, summarising data, statistical analysis and the written and oral presentation of a research project. During the semester, students will work on their research project under the guidance and supervision of the course leader. Their work will culminate in the submission of a written report and the delivery of an oral presentation.
