Special Reading Program HPP409

Hobart, Launceston

Note:

Students must obtain the approval of the Honours Coordinator prior to enrolling in this unit with a proposal and obtain agreement from the unit Coordinator to supervise their topic. Enrolment in this unit will only be approved by the Head of School in exceptional circumstances.

Introduction

Involves supervised reading on a topic selected by the student in consultation with an appropriate member of staff. Students must justify why they wish to enrol in this unit instead of another unit on offer. Enrolment in this unit requires the specific approval of both the relevant staff member (your supervisor) and the Honours Coordinator before enrolling. For this reason students are unable to enrol online. Instead, students must print a hard copy of their enrolment statement which must be signed by the Honours Coordinator. Students are advised to approach an appropriate member of staff first (dependent on topic and area of expertise) to discuss supervision. The Honours Coordinator will only approve enrolment in this unit if a staff member has agreed to supervise.
