A Research project is undertaken over the full duration of the course and the research module contributes half of the final score. Various research projects are offered by the staff, though students may also consult with relevant staff members should they wish to develop a project not listed.
During the first term students will be introduced to the Research Groups and the projects they offer. Project selection will be made during the first term and a research proposal prepared and presented in the second term of the first semester.
The Second Semester will be used to finish research and do the write-up. In addition students are required to make a poster presentation as well as present the findings of this research project at the annual postgraduate research meeting.
