mic4pgb grad diploma microbiology




Credit points: 60

Subject outline

This is a one-year research project (under the supervision of a senior academic) and a minor course-work component. In most cases it is identical to the fourth year honours program, but in some circumstances some elements of the course can be tailored to suit a candidate's special interests or needs. This may involve, for example, additional course work. The broad research areas are the same as those described for the honours program.
