Content

SRR402 gives students the opportunity to undertake an in-depth investigation of a chosen topic. This topic will usually be chosen as part of your studies in SRR401. Students will be required to confirm their research proposal, identifying research objectives, performing research activities and communicate research results.   This includes both oral and written communication. Students are encouraged to express their views, develop ideas and carry out such study and research as is necessary under the guidance of an appropriate supervisor.

Where data collection involves ethics approval, an application needs to have been approved by the University before fieldwork can begin. If final approval is not received by Week 4 then students must pursue an alternate methodology.
