NS3015: Research Project


Credits: 30

Length: Two terms

Winter term: ~3-5 hours per week

Spring term: 6 weeks of dedicated project time

Module Synopsis:

In your third year you undertake a substantial individual project, giving you the opportunity to investigate a particular scientific question in real detail. This also gives you an opportunity to specialise in a particular discipline if you so choose, as well as being useful to demonstrate to employers your individual strengths in areas such as planning, time management, execution and writing.

The Project is supported by a series of Project Seminars, these are intended to model the interaction of a research group. It gives you some practice in disseminating your work to other researchers while it is still on-going (as opposed to the final polished product) and allows you to experience the breadth of research being undertaken by your colleagues.
