This course is designed for students undertaking a full-time Honours year as part of the Bachelor of Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) or undertaking Honours in the School of Chemistry.  The Honours year allows students to undertake a supervised Research Project under the direction of an academic staff member, where the project introduces students to research and places emphasis on advanced disciplinary knowledge.  Over the course of the Honours project the student will gain experience in the use of specialised research techniques relevant to their chosen area, critical thinking, data collection and analysis, problem solving and scientific communication.  Assessment tasks include the submission of a Research Thesis based on substantial independent research activity.

This course is only available to students enrolled in the School of Chemistry Honours Program or the Medicinal Chemistry Honours program, and the School's Honours Coordinator must approve enrolment.
