The second phase of the research will involve collection of qualitative data seeking to establish the existing barriers in the context of knowledge sharing within the university environment. The research seeks to examine communication barriers and the impact of these barriers on knowledge sharing. Qualitative methods will be utilised in collection of information regarding the impact of the barriers on the information flow. Secondary sources of information will be utilised in the collection of qualitative data. The elements being researched will be effectively understood through collection of both qualitative and quantitative data. This remains the fundamental advantage for the utilisation of mixed methods in conducting research. The utilisation of mixed methods enables researchers to gain pragmatic perspectives towards understanding the elements being researched(Creswell & Clark, 2007).
Data collection within the research will be conducted through two fundamental approaches, which will enable the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data. The utilisation of interviews will provide the research with a platform for communicating directly with the participants and collect essential information for the research findings. The interviews will be conducted in different locations according to the requirements of the participants. Interviews are essential in providing primary information regarding the qualitative data required within the research(Cozby & Bates, 2012). The interviews will be utilised in the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data, essential for the research. The interviews will follow a structured approach in which the researchers will utilise written questions in data collection.
The researchers will also utilise questionnaires in seeking to reach individuals from remote locations, who cannot be reached

As noted by scholars, research methodology is the cornerstone of a study. It requires effective planning and development of sustainable programs that will drive the research process. Research methods include data compilation techniques, analysis, design and development of the findings.
The researcher has to opt for a methodology design by investigating the requirements of the research. Adopting a Qualitative approach is appropriate to this research as it is looking to find out the students’ perception and experience both during their educational year aboard in UK.
Though the higher incidence can be at least partially attributed to genetic and hereditary factors, such factors do not provide an adequate picture of the increased incidence of Diabetes.

Information technology can be applied to every department of a police administration. The use of computers in administrative processes greatly reduces the amount of paperwork, and shortens the time necessary in accomplishing each process.

There are two major theories that have tried to shade light on the impact of the media content and its next influence on the behavior patterns of the society or audience.
In this regard, it can be recommended that a mixed approach comprising qualitative and quantitative research methods can be appropriate for this proposed study. Moreover, in order to collect appropriate and adequate data both primary and secondary data collection methods can be adopted for this proposed study to reveal accurate and detailed findings.
