In this unit students develop high level scientific inquiry and research skills by undertaking an individual research project. Students are required to work closely with advice from their supervisor for the duration of their candidature. The research project is to be undertaken over two trimesters of full-time duration. At the end of their study, students will be required to complete a major research thesis, which gives them an opportunity to apply and present knowledge gained through their research investigation in the chosen field of study. Assessment of student learning will include the submission of a major thesis that will be assessed by at least two examiners and presentation of research project findings in a formal seminar.
