This unit is taken over two consecutive semesters for full-time enrolment or up to three consecutive semesters for part-time enrolment. Parts 1 to 3 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. The unit is for students enrolled in the Master of Science (Exercise Science) by thesis and coursework [formerly Master of Science (Human Movement) by thesis and coursework]. Successful completion of the unit requires the submission of a research thesis demonstrating in-depth knowledge of a specific content area as well as the ability to conduct scientific research in this area and report the findings in a scholarly manner.
Students are able to generate original ideas or thoughts; independently investigate these ideas or thoughts in a scientific manner; and compile a substantial, scholarly report about the findings of the investigation.
The thesis is examined by two experts in the student's field of research. The examiners evaluate the extent to which the thesis represents a substantial work based on independent research and provides evidence of sound knowledge of the subject area; independence of thought; and ability to convey information in clear and concise language.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
