MSci projects are carried out by students at the end of their third year and throughout their fourth year. The aim is to develop research skills, working in a research environment.

The initial part of the project is a literature review conducted at the end of the third year and with a deadline in early October. The main research part is usually carried out within the departments research groups and covers the first two terms of the fourth year. Projects finish with an oral viva in the last week of the second term and a report that is handed in during the first week of the third term.

Projects are research-group based with a staff supervisor and assessor. Approaches are dependent on the supervisor and the project topic and may be practical or theoretical in nature.
