A selection of research projects from within the Discipline of Chemistry will be on offer.  Students will undertake their individual project within a research group in the College of Physical Sciences under the supervision of the group leader. This is an Honours Pathway Course.  Completion of particular chemistry C courses may be a requirement  for certain of the projects on offer.

Learning Outcomes

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. plan and engage in a critical investigation of a chosen area of specialisation in chemistry, in the context of working within an internationally competitive research group
2. systematically identify relevant theory and concepts, relate these to appropriate methodologies and evidence, and draw appropriate conclusions
3. engage in systematic discovery and critical review of appropriate and relevant information sources
4. communicate research concepts and contexts clearly and effectively both in writing and orally

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on:

  • Lab book (30%; LO 1, 2, 3, 4)
  • Written report (50%; LO 1, 2, 3, 4)
  • 10-minute seminar (10%; LO 1, 2, 3, 4)
  • Supervisor assessment of research potential (10%; LO 1, 2, 3, 4)

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.
