Property Research and Analysis is a taught module that draws on theories and techniques to analyse various property-related research questions in an applied way through selected research-based studies demonstrating how these theories and techniques are applied. The specific focus on research in this subject provides the foundation for ABPL90362 Research Thesis – Property.
The subject has two aims:
The subject concentrates on the preliminary stages of research, from defining a research question through to planning and beginning implementation of the research. The output of students' work constitutes the basis for the empirical work conducted in ABPL90362 Research Thesis - Property and forms an integral part of the final research report of that subject.
Together ABPL90363 Property Research Analysis and ABPL90362 Research Thesis - Property meet the 25-point research pathway to PhD requirement.
Upon completion of this subject students are expected to:
1000-word assignment focussing on preliminary problem definition and literature review specific to the problem due in week 6 (15%).
Date collection (primary or secondary) and analysis assignment due in week 8 (20%).
A scholarly report of 4,000 words containing research problem definition, development proposal and literature review on a topic defined by the student in consultation with the subject coordinator, and establishing the basis for the empirical work that will be carried out in ABPL90362 Research Thesis - Property. Due week 11 (65%).
A pass must be attained in all assessments in order to pass the subject.
