Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

This degree is comparable to the additional year taken by candidates in an Honours degree. It is designed to provide students with training in scientific method and in the verbal and written communication of scientific results.

Students carry out a research project which may be conducted at other sites within Australia or overseas, provided the candidate is able to attend the seminars and has a supervisor from the Faculty of Health willing to oversee his/her progress.
