What will I learn

You will have the opportunity to study an area of interest in depth. It will require you to use your creativity and initiative while developing research and presentation skills you will need for further study or work. You will explore and develop one or more capabilities in the context of your research.

The four parts of the research framework are:

  1. initiating, planning and managing the research
  2. carrying out the research
  3. communicating the research outcome
  4. evaluating the research

This framework is flexible to accommodate different models and approaches to research and enquiry-based learning and to guide each student's research, on any topic and in any context.
