Students are required to fund their own travel and accommodation costs and activities undertaken as part of the overseas travel component.
You will need to access substantial learning resources and experiences in CloudDeakin (Deakin’s online learning environment). Compliance with the Standards in computing, connectivity and student capability are a condition on your enrolment.
In consultation with an appointed supervisor, students will be required to undertake activities including defining a research topic or project that examines a topic in the built environment. The tasks may involve planning a research program; delineation of a design process; undertaking a project as part of an overseas study tour; collecting and analysing data appropriate to the research topic or project; and documenting and or expressing the results of the research in a range of suitable assessable media. The specific research or project topic and the details of the research or project are to be determined in consultation with the appointed supervisor.
Depending upon the nature of the topic/project, and the choice made by the student subject to application to the Unit Chair and Course Director, the assessment will be based upon a Research Journal (40%) and a Research Report (60%), or a Progressive Folio (40%), an Exhibition (40%) and a Jury Oral Presentation (20%).
