The course will involve seminars and/or research programs to be supervised by staff members or visitors to the ANU. The format of this course will depend on the availability and interests of staff in given years. NB: This is a restricted entry course and students will be notified about the procedure for application to the Director of the Research School of Psychology before the start of each semester.

Topic options will be announced prior to the commencement of first semester.

As this course comprises advanced study it is primarily aimed at students intending to apply for Honours in psychology, and will usually require a minimum average mark of 65 in Psychology courses.

Note: This is an Honours Pathway Course that involves material of a greater conceptual difficulty and research orientation than a typical Group C course.

Other Information

The Special Topics Course can be completed a maximum of three times; students cannot repeat the course with an identical topic. In addition, students are not permitted to complete more than two special topics of the same format. For example, if students complete two individual and group-based research projects, the third enrolment opportunity must entail a course with a different structure.


More information on the special topics available can be found at http://psychology.anu.edu.au/study/special-topics . Please contact the Research School of Psychology for more information at enquiries.psychology@anu.edu.au

Indicative Assessment

The form of assessment generally consists of a major assignment.

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.
