The emphasis of a work based project is to improve a current situation through effecting change to a process, policy or practice. There is a strong focus, supported by a progressive assessment structure, on a student's grasp of the applied research process. Students are therefore progressively assessed at major points throughout the project. Students are assigned an academic supervisor pertinent to their degree and are also required to work with an approved workplace mentor or advisor. Their project may be a part of a larger workplace project or a stand-alone one. The student's research may result in a comprehensive report, a journal article, training program, policy recommendation or something similar.
