This course provides an essential introduction to Honours for students undertaking either a full-time or part-time Honours program in the School of Chemistry.
The course results in a written research proposal providing an account of relevant scientific literature and a description of the research work expected to be undertaken during the Honours program. The focus of the research proposal is decided in consultation with the student’s Honours Supervisor and is related to the topic area of the research project. Students will also present a short seminar based on their proposal. Other required research training, including relevant workplace health and safety inductions and additional instruction on topics including preparation of research proposals, and ethical practice, complements this course.
The course is only available to students enrolled in the School of Chemistry Honours Program, and must be taken in a student’s first semester of Honours in conjunction with an Honours Research Project in the School of Chemistry. The School’s Honours Coordinator must approve enrolment.
