Module overview

As part of year one of the Integrated PhD (iPhD) programme, all students will undertake three short research projects (10-12 weeks each) in different laboratories. This offers students the opportunity to develop a broad range of laboratory skills and to develop a well-rounded understanding of their chosen field of study. Students will be offered as much choice as possible for each of the three projects, with information on project availability being provided by the module leads. Students will be encouraged to develop a wide range of skills that will support them for their research in years 2-4 of the programme.

Each student will have a clearly identified supervisor who will provide guidance and support in both the practical and theoretical elements of the project. Students will need to utilise appropriate research techniques to address a clear research question. In addition, students will be expected to develop a good understanding of the published literature within their field of study.

Assessment of the project will be through a written research report of approximately 5000 words.
