In a research degree (Research Masters or PhD) the primary mode of learning is self-learning. There is no formal course work. The student is responsible for carrying out the required work, to the appropriate standard, within the appropriate timeframe.
A supervisor is appointed by the Institute to guide the student in developing and carrying out the project. An added advantage of this learning mode, beyond achieving Level 9 or 10 knowledge and skills, is that the student develops and proves their ability to work alone, or in groups, to take responsibility for leading and initiating work, and to self-evaluate and manage their own academic and professional development. These skills are valued highly in the workplace.
