The independent study option allows students of exceptional ability to engage in a minor research project. The course is particularly useful for students who wish to pursue further research or investigate a topic of interest not covered by other courses. This course can only be undertaken if the planned project is of interest to a supervisor in the School. There are restrictions placed on both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses, as such students interested in this course should in the first instance contact the School via email to pols@uq.edu.au or phone (07) 3346 9544 more than a month prior to the beginning of semester to confirm their eligibility to apply.
