The honours thesis is a 12,000–15,000 word research project on a topic of the student’s choice which has been approved by the Honours coordinator. The supervision of the project involves (where applicable) the gaining of ethics approval, and regular meetings between the student and their primary supervisor, aimed at monitoring the progress of research and thesis preparation. The thesis is completed according to the academic conventions of the relevant discipline, or combined disciplines.
