The research-based programme aims at developing skilled and competent individuals with the ability to conceptualise, develop and conduct applied research in the field of Health Sciences. The programme builds on previously acquired theoretical and practical knowledge at NQF level 9 and other industrial experience of students to investigate and develop innovative ideas and products to solve problems in the field of Health Sciences. The growing sophistication and recent developments in health sciences research, require stronger capacity for interdisciplinary research. Consequently, students need to have mastery of their disciplines in order to contribute their expertise in multi-disciplinary fora in education and research. In addition, cutting-edge research is increasingly dependent on collaboration among related disciplines in health sciences.
