    Teaching Arrangements

    You should discuss possible topics with lecturers and with the honours director of studies well before the start of the first semester. Ideally, you should know your supervisor(s) and your topic by the start of the first semester. The written report should be submitted by the end of the lecturing period in the second semester. The length and nature of the written report vary widely, depending on the area of study, the nature of the project and on the subject matter (all of this is taken into consideration by the examiners). You should plan your report carefully in consultation with your supervisor: it can take longer than you might think to do the actual writing. You are also welcome to talk to the honours co-ordinator at any stage.
