Overview

This course is part of a supervised research project which provides opportunities for motivated and highly qualified students to undertake advanced study and to produce a research-based thesis. Students develop the appropriate research skills and specialist knowledge which will enhance their career prospects or allow them to undertake further studies. The emphasis of the programme is on developing the appropriate knowledge and skills to undertake independent research and professional practice.

Candidates in the Master of Science (Research) will undertake studies on their research project in consultation with their Project Supervisors.

This is a one-unit course that contributes towards the Master of Science (Research) thesis. It comprises the research and writing of a thesis (maximum of 40,000 words). Students examine a selected research topic in their area of interest, usually related to their work environment and are assisted by their supervisory team with appropriate background. The dissertation will be a significant piece of independently conducted and written research. To successfully complete the thesis, students will be required to select a research topic, develop a proposal, carry out supervised research on the chosen topic using an appropriate research method, and present and defend the results.
