  8. 8. “The module has already had many benefits, such as: - getting students to understand how to do a lit search, in practice not just theory. - to start their project lit review nice and early, and find helpful literature for their CARE [ethics approval] form - to better focus their project research question - to start working in peer groups that can continue throughout the project year. And many students seem to be engaged and enthusiastic about the module.” Module coordinator for MSc Epidemiology “Many thanks for running these library sessions - seems they have been a big success! I've been very impressed at the level of participation overall.” Module coordinator for MSc Public Health Preliminary feedback from intermediate module
