Master's degree students must submit a Biostatistics Research Project Portfolio, comprising either two projects (Part A and Part B) or one project (Part C).
A student must be enrolled in order to submit the biostatistics research project portfolio. If a student is not able to submit his/her biostatistics research project portfolio after enrolling once in Part C or once in both Part A and Part B, then he/she must re-enrol in a minimum of six credit points of biostatistics research project portfolio units of study, with the concomitant financial liability, every semester until he/she submits.
