More Information on Examiner Roles and Responsibility
Please note: this section is used by the Year 4 Research Committee to assess the scientific merit, appropriateness and feasibility of the project for an ILP/Honours student.
Please ensure that you provide sufficient information or the Committee will need to request additional information.
What is known; what is unknown; what is to be investigated; and why it is important
|Hypothesis and Aims/Research question(s)|
|What will the student’s role be in the research?|
Please be as specific as possible, for example (but not restricted to these: recruiting participants, collecting data, analysing specific variables or aspects of the data, running western blot analysis, running animal experimentations, blood analysis)
*School/Centre for allocation of funds
Please carefully select the school/centre that you are affiliated to. Your fund will be allocated to this school/centre.
The ethics application is the responsibility of the supervisor although the student can assist in the submission process. Ethics approval should be in place by the time of commencement of year 4. A student who has a project that does not have ethics approval in place by the end of March of their ILP/Honours year, will be required to change projects and potentially supervisors. It is not possible to grant special consideration to students whose final reports are late due to delays in gaining ethics approvals.
