Biostatistics Research Project Part C (BSTA5022)


This unit is for master's students who intend to do only one workplace project. The aim of the unit is to give master's students practical experience, usually in workplace settings, in the application of knowledge and skills learnt during the coursework of the master's program. Students will provide evidence of having met this goal by presenting a portfolio made up of a preface and one project report. The project must involve complex multivariable analysis of data.
