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 investigative skills in the area of human structure and function by conducting an investigation of their own.
