INSTG042/43/44 Individual Approved Study

These modules allow students (especially part-time students who wish to relate their work to practical external projects) to undertake individual study and/or research in specific areas not otherwise covered by standard components, and/or to explore in greater detail some of the topics which are introduced in more general terms in other preceding courses; and to encourage methods of research, investigation and presentation which will be developed in the final dissertation.

Since each student undertaking these courses is undertaking unique work, the specific educational aims and objectives of each implementation (and all other parameters required) must be agreed, documented and approved by the programme director and relevant tutor before any student's registration for the modules may be accepted.

Individual Approved Studies (with different agreed content) may be offered multiply, as up to three separate option choices (i.e. as INSTG042, INSTG043 and INSTG044), subject to the approval of the Programme Director.
