Content

In this unit students will carry out their professional practice relevant to their Biotechnology course using knowledge gained in previous study. The project entails research investigation involving an analysis and interpretation of data, or a critical review and interpretation of literature on a selected topic, and provides an opportunity for the practical application and integration of the professional background and skills studied in other units of the master's degree. The unit requires a commitment equivalent to around one trimester's work on a part-time basis and will earn two credit points. Frequent feedback to the University supervisor in the form of progress reports is essential. Students will be required to submit a minor thesis fully documenting the work carried out. Students are also required to present their work at a seminar arranged at a suitable venue.

Assessment

Oral presentation 30%, two project reports (20%, 50%) 70%
