Education Honours 1 (EDUF4215)


There is no coursework per se in the final Honours year, for non-Education students, with the writing of the Honours thesis comprising EDUF4215 and EDUF4216. The Honours thesis involves investigation of a topic chosen by students and relevant to their own interests. The thesis will be based on the research proposal and is supervised directly by an academic within the Faculty. Although the length of the thesis will vary depending on the nature of the investigation, and length does not necessarily indicate quality, the thesis will not normally exceed 20000 -25000 words.
