Hobart, Launceston

This unit has been discontinued.


This unit is available only to students already enrolled in a Chemistry major. Enrolment in this unit depends on the availability of a suitable project, supervisor and resources.

This unit is classed as a restricted unit which means that approval from the unit co-ordinator must be obtained for enrolment.


This unit comprises a one-semester research project in chemistry for advanced students. This unit will only be offered to students who are currently enrolled in units leading to a major in Chemistry (within the BSc, BBiotech, BBioTechMedRes or BEnvSci programs) and then only with the approval of the Head of School. Once approved, students should speak to academic staff and discuss suggestions for suitable projects before the start of semester (please refer to the unit outline for detailed timelines).

The unit will involve the equivalent of 6 hours per week for 13 weeks spent in planning, conducting and reporting on a research project in an area negotiated between the student and the supervising academic staff.
