Description A research project based module, designed to introduce students to project based work. Students are required to undertake projects chosen from a wide and varied list of titles. The work is designed to promote independent learning (although academic support is available), reflection upon and analysis of results, and forward planning. This module also contains a component of project research skills which is a taught component aimed to provide the students with the academic writing skills they will need for their project work. The results of the project work are communicated using a written dissertation, oral presentation and oral defence of the project (viva voce with their assessors).

  • Demonstrate an ability to carry out project based work;
