Approach to learning and assessment

The learning activities that you will complete as part of this program include:

  • Explanation of key concepts during lectures, seminars or online, where syllabus material will be presented and illustrated with demonstrations and examples;

  • Tutorials and group discussions (including online forums) focussed on projects and problem solving will provide practice in the application of theory and procedures, allow exploration of concepts with tutors and other students, and give feedback on your progress and understanding;

  • Written assignments consisting of numerical and other problems requiring an integrated understanding of the subject matter; and

  • Private study, working through the courses as presented in classes and learning materials, and gaining practice at solving conceptual and practical problems.
  • Written final examinations for the non-thesis component of the program

The honours program includes a thesis component, which typically includes the consolidation of capabilities gained from the aforementioned activites. This is a year-long component and composes of Honours Project 1 and 2.  Assessment includes a presentation of the work, and assessment of the thesis by two examiners. You shall also undertake a research methods component in your adavanced topics courses via online delivery.

    If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Equitable Learning Sevices if you would like to find out more.

    If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program.
