Tutor expertise: Qualitative Research Methods
We offer a Postgraduate Certificate in Qualitative Health Research Methods and a Qualitative Research Methods module on the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care. In addition, students can access our supervisory faculty to complete qualitative research as part of their dissertation on any of our Masters or DPhil programme.
Let's meet some of our tutors, highly qualified in conducting qualitative research:
