- This unit is taken over two successive semesters and parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. Students learn about the principles and practice of human biology by conducting an investigation of their own. They search for and interpret literature, design a project that may involve constructing experimental hypotheses or objectives, develop and understand appropriate methodologies, plan and execute experiments, analyse and interpret findings, and prepare a dissertation based on their work.
- Students are able to develop a deeper understanding of research processes including experimental design, analysis interpretation and presentation of results.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) written reports; (2) examinations; and (3) seminars. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
