60910 Directed Study A



This postgraduate subject is designed to enhance development of students' ability to undertake a professionally based scientific project. This subject can only be undertaken following prior negotiation on the part of the student with a full-time member of academic staff regarding supervision. Students contribute, in collaboration with their academic and, where relevant, industry supervisor, to the formulation of the project, including planning the work within an appropriate time scale. Students are responsible for appropriate analysis and critical evaluation of the data or information obtained and presentation of their findings in a formal written report.

Students should approach potential supervisors in the first instance. Before enrolment can be approved, the student and supervisor must provide the head of school with a short written project proposal, including assessment criteria and, where the project involves laboratory or field work, a completed risk assessment form. In addition, approval by the subject coordinator is required.
