Description This module allows students to study with a research group in the school. Academics will offer a range of projects and students will select from these areas of interest. The projects will focus on experimental, modelling, non-laboratory research (e.g. policy, economics, etc) or a combination of these areas and expose students to the cutting edge of the research done in the school. The exact nature of the research project topic will vary, but the learning outcomes below encapsulate the key skills gained during the project.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Critically evaluate the current literature in the area of their research project
  • Apply this knowledge in an original way to plan their own independent research project
  • Evaluate and select techniques applicable to their research project
  • Design and perform experiments, analyse their data, and/or plan and execute critical analysis in the context of the area of research
  • Present their research to a scientifically-literate but non-specialised audience
  • Write a project report
Assessment Methods & Exceptions Assessment: 20% Supervisor mark on performance in lab, project plan and initial literature review, 20% Oral presentation (pre-recorded with online Q&A if required), 60% Written project report (Canvas). Reassessment: 100% resubmission of project report (Canvas).
