Further unit of study information




Review by two independent assessors.
The treatise may take one of two forms, either a written output on work performed during the candidature from a supervised student project that contains between 10,000-20,000 words or a scientific paper that arises from a supervised student's project and has been accepted by a peer review journal for publication. The scientific paper however still needs to be embedded in a treatise with an expanded introduction and literature review as well as an expanded conclusion/discussion section. Additional methods and results not presented in the scientific paper should also be included.
