This course exists to satisfy need for flexibility within a program in order to cater for the widely varying interests and chosen specializations of students. Some students taking this course in the online mode, depending on their negotiated studies/assessment, may have attendance requirements.

This course provides the opportunity for a student to pursue an area of study which will complement the other studies in their program. Typically the course will consist of specialised investigations extending knowledge and skills in a certain area. The studies could involve, for example, a directed reading course, an extension to a project (where appropriate), or some other approved activity which would complement the student's studies. The area of study chosen will be assigned after consultation with the examiner and a staff member with expertise in the area concerned. To fulfil entry requirements into the course, students must provide the course examiner with a satisfactory study plan, endorsed by the appropriate staff member, by the end of week 1 of the semester in which they are taking the course.
