Syllabus

Students will develop a working research project in consultation with staff. The title will then be approved by the supervisor and module manager. The supervisor will be responsible for overseeing the work in an advisory capacity, but the students will be expected to plan execute and interpret their own work. Projects may be individual, or group, insofar as the collection of data may be collaborative, but individual students will use the data to address different project titles.
