A 10-week research project is undertaken alone or in pairs in which the student learns laboratory or literature research techniques. Each student is assigned to a research team usually on the Foresterhill site, but occasionally projects may be offered by associated teams outwith the University, for example at The Robert Gordon University. Each student independently submits the outcome of the project as a thesis in the format of a scientific paper. An oral account of the project is presented to SMS staff and fellow students. Students gain extensive experience of literature research procedures, data acquisition and analysis, and critical thinking. Students are assessed on both their performance throughout the whole project and the quality of the written thesis.
Sorry, we don't have that information available.
