Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.


Under the guidance of a supervisor the student will undertake research and prepare a dissertation on a topic falling within the areas of focus and specialisation of the Pharmacy discipline. The student will normally be enrolled for four semesters full-time or the equivalent part time. The thesis will be assed by one internal and one external examiner.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Design and execute a research project relating to a pharmaceutical or pharmacy related issue to a standard acceptable to the supervisor;

2. Independently undertake an analysis of data; and

3. Communicate the results of an independent research project in a form acceptable for publication in a refereed journal.
