There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Building on 96102 Research Methods in Genetic Counselling, students undertake a research project over two subjects. Their project may involve a systematic search and narrative analysis of an area related to genetic counselling, working on a larger project as part of an established research team, or undertaking an independent original research study. In consultation with supervisors, the project goals are established, planning, organisation and reporting stages are agreed on, and a process of reflection is followed to ensure that the expectations of students and supervisors are met.

During this subject the study is developed and data is collected. Students keep a research journal, documenting progress, decisions made and the rationale for decisions. The journal is a helpful tool for keeping the research on track, guiding regular research supervision meetings, identifying areas for group tutorials and enabling reflection on the overall research process and learning during 96114 Research Project 2.
