Master of Nursing (By Research)

Victoria University (VU)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00124K

The Masters Degree (Research) allows students to develop their knowledge and skills in planning and executing a substantial piece of original research in an area that is of interest to them and to the University, industry and the community, with the assistance of an experienced research supervisory team. This degree requires students to apply an advanced body of knowledge in a range of contexts for research and scholarship and potentially as a pathway to a PhD or Professional Doctorate. It involves supervised study and research, through completion of a major research thesis in an approved thesis format for examination, as well as research training and independent study. Feedback is provided face-to-face and online by the supervisory team, and co-curricular opportunities for receiving feedback are available through activities in which students are strongly encouraged to participate, such as involvement in support and adjunct programs offered by the university or externally; collaborative publication of academic articles with supervisors and peers; presentation at academic conferences including those organised within VU for graduate researchers and staff; and other presentations to a variety of audiences.
