MARI480 Independent Project

A supervised project involving research and leading to the production of a research report.

This paper is one of the options for students enrolled in the Postgraduate Diploma of Marine Science. If you choose to do a 20-point desktop research review, you may not use this qualification to go on to another research degree. The other option is to undertake original research and enrol in the 40-point equivalent paper: MARI 490. Admission to the programme is contingent on having a supervisor and a review project ready to go.
