The research project provides students with the opportunity to select a topic of interest within their general field of study for detailed investigation. The study can be performed as an individual or normally as part of a small group. The specific syllabus will be determined by the particular study area chosen. Approval for a particular study must be given by the unit coordinator and is dependent on an academic staff member being available and willing to supervise the proposed project. This report may take the format of either a research manuscript, research plan, journal article, business plan, substantial critical review, or similar. The exact nature of the final report will depend on the individual or group topic and will be finalised in writing with the supervisor. The project will be presented in paper form and in a final seminar.
