The student will be expected to make an oral presentation of the project plan and/or its progress before or during the investigation and of the outcome at the completion of the research at the departmental level. The provision of a project supervisor notwithstanding, the student should be made to demonstrate independent initiative and motivation as this will be considered in the project assessment.
A final report of the project will be typed and bound in an approve format and the student will be expected to satisfy a panel of internal and external examiners at a viva voice defense.
