This course helps prepare you to undertake research at the postgraduate degree level and is designed for all UNSW Built Environment postgraduate students undertaking research dissertations. The accent is on research design – the overall visioning and operationalization of your project in ways that respect academic best practice and pragmatic constraints on research (including time and resources).
The course is offered to different cohorts of higher degree research and masters coursework students, all of whom together attend several large group briefings alongside working within their degree programs. Student presentations are complemented by small group sessions which are the responsibility of various degree coordinators. Students are advised to check carefully that the documentation and advice they are considering relates precisely to them.
