Students undertake an independent research project. The project provides an opportunity for students to undertake independent research on a topic relevant to a specific discipline, for example, dietetics, occupational health and safety, health promotion, health policy and management, food science or public health. Supervision is available where appropriate. Students are able to pursue a topic of interest to their sponsors or relevant to their workplace. Students will formulate a research question, design and execute a study and apply their findings in a community or workplace context.
