BMS348 Research Proposal (8)

In this subject, students prepare for research by writing a research proposal as well as completing ethics application(s) and other application(s) that may be required. A comprehensive and critical literature review in the area of study is analysed to inform the formulation of a research question, develop a proposal for the School's Honours Committee, and address inherent ethical issues, when appropriate. After completing this subject, a student is well placed to continue with the research. This subject requires background in research methodology.
