Neuroscience IV Honours (S) (NEUR4005)

The principal component of the 10 months Honours course is a research project conducted under supervision. In addition, students are expected to attend a journal club program, various workshops and seminars, write a literature review and present seminars on their research work. The Honours course runs either from early February to late November or from mid July to late May. In addition to meeting the entry requirements set by the College of Medicine, Biology and Environment, students must have the agreement of a member of the academic staff to supervise their project, and the agreement of the Head of Biology Teaching and Learning. Academic staff from the Research School of Biology, Department of Psychology, the John Curtin School of Medical Research, and ANU Medical School may be supervisors. Students should discuss their intention to undertake an Honours project with potential supervisors and the Honours coordinator, several months before the proposed starting date. Note that several organisations award honours scholarships in September-December for the following year.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
