Content 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. The unit can be modified to suit, as far as practicable, each student's background, interests and planned future career. Students may be involved with the various experimental approaches and teaching methodologies in human biology as practised in the School.
Outcomes Students are able to gain the necessary skills to initiate and manage projects and investigative studies in human biology.
Assessment Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) written assignments; (2) examinations; and (3) seminars. Further information is available in the unit outline.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
