The second of two supervised independent Master project units involving detailed research in/of a subject to be chosen in consultation with the relevant discipline supervisor. This unit focuses on the completion and presentation of the research commenced in Advanced Discipline Project 1, and will be taken in the semester following or at the same time as that unit. The specific nature of the project, the methods of research and the outcomes in terms of reports, publications or presentations will be determined on an individual basis for each student and may include professionally orientated tasks or components.

Please Note: If it’s your first time studying a Curtin University unit you’ll need to complete their compulsory ‘Academic Integrity Program’. It only takes two hours to complete online, and provides you with vital information about studying with Curtin University. The Academic Integrity Program is compulsory, so if it’s not completed your unit grades will be withheld.
