Are you a 2nd year Coventry University student who still needs to take an Add+Vantage module in Semester Two? Why not consider CAW’s Add+Vantage module and learn how research is a key area of competence that university students need to develop. This module will cover how research is conducted; how you can understand the research process; and how to interpret your findings and those of others.
Throughout this module, you will have the opportunity to enhance your understanding of the research process, draw on your first-year experience at university and develop key skills that can be drawn upon for your final year dissertation or research project. While studying this module you will undertake an introduction to higher education research through a combination of self-guided study and a short placement to a ‘live’ research project within a relevant research centre.
Places are very limited on this module due to its unique offering and mentoring. If you are interested, please email the Add+vantage Team directly to: email@example.com making sure you include the module code and your student ID number.
Did you know that as a Coventry University PhD (PGR) or Masters by Research (MRes) CAW offers short research writing courses? Starting in January 2024 or May 2024, these modules can help with developing your writing for research and publication purposes no matter what your current level of research is. The modules are: ‘Thesis Writing: Processes and Organisation’ (NEW for this academic year); ‘Reviewing Research Literature’; ‘Crafting a Research Article’; and ‘Writing for Scholarly Publication’.
PGR students can accrue up to 100 development hours per module. Students have the opportunity of receiving formative feedback on writing from the CAW Academic Writing specialist. Places on CAW’s modules are limited and subject to availability. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
