When deciding on a research project, you should consider whether you want to enrol in a Minor or Major Research Project (25 or 50 points), and whether you want to complete your research in one semester, or over two semesters.
|Topic||Minor Research Project||Major Research Project|
The minimum research project credit point requirement is 25 credit points in the Masters of Food Science.
Masters of Agricultural Science students can choose between research projects (major/minor) and Internship.
Please find more details in the Handbook.
|Duration||Generally one semester in length (AGRI90070) unless approval is obtained for a project done over consecutive semesters (AGRI90079 and AGRI90081)||Generally year long commencing in Semester 1 (AGRI90080 and then AGRI90082 in Semester 2) unless approval is given for a semester-long project (AGRI90072).|

|Pre-requisites||Undertaking a major or minor research project is conditional upon obtaining approval from a supervisor with consideration to appropriate subjects undertaken in your Masters.|
|Pre-requisite||N/A||NRMT90003 Social Research Methods or AGRI90075 Research Methods For Life Sciences must be studied either before or at the same time as the major research project.|
Compared to the minor research project, the major project requires deeper and higher-level analysis.
In order to complete the major project to a high level, a GPA of 75+ is recommended in preceding coursework subjects.
A research project will be required for students planning for a PhD pathway.
The Project Approval form requires the signature of a supervisor.
Scan and upload the form to Stop 1 using the Enrolment Variation Form.
You are also required to scan and upload the form to the LMS once enrolled.
