All students attending the MSc in Palliative Care are required to conduct a research study project that contributes 30% towards your final degree. The project (consisting on 15,000 words) should be a substantial piece of work consistent with an MSc. The experience of carrying out research for your project will provide you with an opportunity to draw on many aspects of the course in order to address a research question relevant to you. Quantitative or qualitative, or a combination of methodologies can be applied providing these are rigorous and justified. Larger scale systematic reviews, and original analysis of data already collected are also accepted.
