Assessment type: Project
The distance learning material is sent to you upon course registration. The package includes:
Learners have the following two options:
Option 1: Unit combination (non-project proposal option)
To make the incorporation of real world experience easier, and to give you as wide a choice of study topics as possible, you will be able to expand on an existing assignment from any of the other level 5 assignment-based units into a report that meets the requirements of this unit.
The combination method will be to take an existing, previously marked level 5 assignment (awarded a pass or higher) and to expand and rework it into a project that fulfils the requirements of the business research unit.
Option 2: Non-unit combination (project proposal option)
You will need to submit a project proposal form for CQI Examiner’s review, who will provide feedback. The aim of the project proposal is not to approve or reject the intended project – the aim is to give you appropriate advice and direction before you embark on completing the U512 project.
Your project will be initially marked by your QM&T tutor and moderated by CQI.
