60 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: A project running over one semester to be taken by Erasmus students. The aim of the project is to give students the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills to a specific task or problem, and to report the work in a professional manner via an interim report and a final dissertation. The project is a detailed piece of work with a level of technical difficulty involving theoretical concepts, on which students are expected to spend about 450 hours. A member of academic or academic related staff will supervise students' work and will meet with them regularly
