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 Research School of Chemistry under the supervision of an RSC group leader. This is an Honours Pathway Course. Completion of particular 2000 or 3000 level chemistry courses may be a requirement for certain projects.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, 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

  1. Lab book (not required for computational projects) (10) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  2. Written report (70) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  3. Oral Presentation (30% for computational projects) (20) [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.
