This course offers the opportunity to develop a range of research skills including ability to search and critically read the literature, develop a research question, develop aims and hypotheses, develop awareness of ethical considerations in research, basic skills in data collection, data analysis, and interpretation of outcomes (where appropriate), and verbal and written communication skills.

Participants in the course must elect to focus on one of two skills sets, with an emphasis on literature review, study design, ethical considerations and communication as the first option, and on literature review, data collection and analysis, ethical considerations and communication as the second option. If focusing on the first option, the course may be suitable by distance, but the second option must take place on the UNSW campus. The final presentation will occur at the UNSW campus.
