A well-argued and practical account of how to build triangulation into data collection in social research. Four forms of triangulation are discussed: different data sets (different times or samples), researchers, theories and methods.
However, graduate training schemes are not the only route into a successful career: on average, only a quarter of graduates will join these schemes every year. Outside these schemes, there are plenty of opportunities where a postgraduate degree will be a requirement or an advantage and employers will value the specialist knowledge or practical skills gained through your studies. This is particularly true in scientific and social research, economics and international organisations, as well as education. Some of these employers may have an annual graduate intake, but many more will only recruit on an ad hoc basis, as and when they need somebody with a particular knowledge base or skill set.
Applicants will be asked to upload an electronic portfolio as part of their application. If you have links to web projects or media assets, please note these in your CV. The portfolio should include a minimum of five web projects and media assets, and should show examples of each of the following:
Employers want postgraduates to be able to offer more than their academic subject knowledge. They also look for a range of skills: transferable skills such as teamworking, business awareness and communication skills plus, depending on the employer, more practical skills such as languages, numeracy, laboratory techniques and quantitative methods. These skills need to be put forward on job applications – even those for academic posts.
This particular document originated as a document for people enrolled in the fourth year of a qualification in psychology. That was the urgent priority at the time. After completing it, I realised it was suitable for coursework masters dissertations too. By then it had become larger than intended but perusing it persuaded me that the length was justified by the topic.
The MSc in Biomedical Science programme&rsquo s primary objective is to provide students with the underpinning knowledge and practical skills to pursue a successful career in biomedical science.

However, for the significant numbers of doctoral graduates who do not wish, or who find themselves unable, to stay in higher education a change in career direction is certainly possible at this stage. This may be through entering employment immediately or may require further study or professional training.
A beautiful application of systems concepts to explain why social systems are so hard to change and why they develop their peculiar dynamics. Uses systems concepts to develop an explanation of organisational dynamics based on nests of self-fulfilling prophecies. Organisational in orientation, but with wider application.
