Study commitment

Students will on average spend 300 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.

This will include educator guided online learning activities within the unit site.


This unit comprises the research project component of the Honours courses in Life and Environmental Sciences. Students will do an individual research project over 9 months, supervised by one or more academic staff. Students will be involved in the design of the project (including sampling or experimental programs), collection and analyses of quantitative or qualitative information, and the interpretation of the results in the context of relevant literature on the research topic. The project is assessed by two seminars presented to students’ peers, a 4 month progress report and a final thesis that presents the results and interpretation of the research. The research project is worth 75% (6 credit points) of your final Honours mark, with the remainder allocated to your two coursework units.
