About this course
This Qualitative Health Research Methods course from University of Oxford will suit novices to qualitative research and those who have some experience, but want to hone their skills. It is designed to suit busy professionals and full-time students alike.
The flexible structure of the course has been devised to fit with the structure of specialist training and to accommodate student choice. Through face-to-face and online sessions, students will develop excellence in the design, conduct and critical appraisal of qualitative research.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- independently develop, design and conduct primary qualitative research, confidently adopting a flexible approach as per the philosophical underpinnings of this mode of naturalistic inquiry;
- critically reflect on their role (and the role of the research team) in the research process, appreciating the consequences this has on the research they conduct, whilst endeavouring to mitigate its impact;
- critically engage with all aspects of qualitative research, including various methodological approaches and quality appraisal; and
- critically engage with theory and wider debate in qualitative research (including on elements associated with rigour, such as critical appraisal).
The Postgraduate Certificate in Qualitative Health Research Methods is a part-time course. The course comprises three modules:
- Qualitative Research Methods
- Advanced Qualitative Research Methods; and
- Mixed Methods in Health Research.
