Regular meetings will be held with the supervisor during the semester for gaining advice on the study topic and technical -atters. Material prepared in the Research Methods subject (705-444/ABPL40041 or 705-666/ABPL00070) is expected to form an integral part of the final research report.
A 15000 word research project report. This comprises the 5000 words of assignments (including literature review) produced for Research Methods (705-666/ABPL00070). Students must also orally present their projects mid-semester. Although this mid-semester seminar is not assessed, the report will not be accepted for examination unless a presentation has been made. Appropriate examiner(s) other than the supervisor examine the final research report.
