Research is an important aspect of undergraduate courses, post-graduate courses and staff activities at Wesley Institute.
Undergraduate students usually do not conduct their own research, but the basis of all knowledge summarized in texts, papers and web-based resources is systematic, original inquiry – that is, research. Hence, undergraduate students use research-based information in their learning.
Post-graduate students normally study research methods and conduct small-scale research as part of their degrees. By undertaking research, post-graduate students are not only learning how to be lifelong learners, but they are also contributing to the stock of contemporary knowledge. As such, they are emerging as members of the scholarly community.
Staff members engage in research as a way of contributing to knowledge in their own discipline and remaining up to date with current ideas. Consistent with the vision and mission of Wesley Institute to provide excellence in Christian higher education, staff research includes projects that integrate Christian values and perspectives within their disciplinary area to the benefit of both the Christian and wider communities.
