Typically, the course will consist of specialised investigations extending knowledge and skills in one of the areas listed in the Topics section below, or another Topic where appropriate and where a supervisor is available.

Students should nominate the topic they wish to study and then email the Course Examiner to enquire whether the topic and a suitable supervisor will be available in their semester of study, and for formal approval to enrol.
