Thesis (Part A)
This course is Part A of a multi-term sequence. Part B must also be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence.
Projects undertaken may include a placement or student research activity within University laboratories or within a clinical setting. Projects may require a wide range of research related activities including laboratory work, database research and analysis, and interviews, questionnaires or surveys. Projects cannot involve the unsupervised application of clinical skills by the student - where the application of clinical skills are required it is customary to involve a clinician as a Supervisor.
