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 approved by the Divisional Research Degrees Committee. The thesis will be examined by two external examiners.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the research process including critical evaluation of the literature and the methodology and methods chosen for the specific research topic; and
