The Honours program consists of a research project and coursework. The research project will be undertaken in one of the research areas of the School of Biomedical and Health Sciences and may, subject to approval, be undertaken at an external location. The coursework components cover a range of information including advanced areas of medical research, literature analysis and critical appraisal, ethics in research, scientific writing, oral presentation, methodological techniques, research design, statistics and data analysis, computer applications and software data presentation. The literature review will provide the scientific background and rationale for the research project, while the design will inform the methodology to be applied in the research project. Students will conduct a research project under supervision. The project will comprise a novel scientific investigation in an area of expertise of the approved supervisor(s). The results of the project will be reported in an oral presentation and a written thesis.
