This 1 credit point unit consists of the preparatory phase of the Masters research project, and is the first of the four Masters Thesis Units (A, B, C and D). This unit introduces students to the requirements of the Research Project. In this unit, students will be provided with assistance in locating a supervisor and in starting work on their individual project. The content of this unit will be determined by negotiation between the unit chair, the individual supervisor and the student.

In this unit, a chapter draft of 4000 words or equivalent will be submitted to receive feedback and assessment to guide your final research project submission. This mark will not impact on the assessment of your Masters research final project as it serves as formative assessment to inform your progress. Students are required to complete the thesis (4 credit points) in a maximum of two trimesters and should contact Postgraduate Student Support if assistance with course planning is required.
