General Details

You are going to produce a project. This will be at least 3 pages long and will contain a mixture of text, pictures and diagrams. You must try to use your own words and not just ‘copy and paste’ information. This is really important – you need to understand the information in your project and you may be asked questions about it. The project is to be handed in by 30th March. It can be done in a file, an exercise book or ‘loose’ pages. You can type it, or write it. Staff will then mark the project and decide whether it is a ‘merit’, ‘graduate’, or ‘honours’  pass. Good luck.
