Scientific research brings together the scientific method, knowledge, observations, and sound data in order to answer specific questions. This can lead to a deeper understanding of a research question or the development of novel solutions to problems. This suite of subjects are designed to enhance students' ability to develop professional research skills as they undertake a research project as part of a larger research endeavor within the Faculty of Science. The Advanced Research Project can only be conducted following prior negotiation on the part of the student with a member within the Faculty of Science regarding supervision and selection of a suitable research topic.

This subject is the last of four Advanced Research Projects within the Advanced Science degree. Students should approach potential supervisors in the first instance. Before enrolment can be approved, the student and supervisor must provide the Bachelor of Advanced Science Program Director with a short written project proposal and, if required, a completed project proposal, Risk Assessment form and relevant Biosafety approval.
