6 points, SCA Band 3, 0.125 EFTSL
Postgraduate Faculty of Business and Economics
Leader(s): Mr Anthony Harris
Students will be required to spend a minimum of ten working weeks in an approved organisation to undertake a period of industry-based learning. This project must be approved by the course coordinator. The employer will provide students with a practical project designed to reinforce principles taught during the coursework component of the Postgraduate Diploma. Working in a relevant setting accelerates learning, encourages understanding and gives practical breadth to theoretical concepts. The subject coordinator will normally liaise with the nominated supervisor at the place of work during the period of assignment and discuss progress with student, employer and local supervisor.
The learning goals associated with this unit are to:
- provide some basic research training and an introduction to applied research in the field of health economics
- allow application of principles taught in the unit to policy and research questions.
Within semester assessment: 100%
Students must have satisfactorily completed seven units in 0967 to undertake this unit
