The Independent Study Module is designed to enable the student to explore an approved topic within the discipline in depth. The student should approach a lecturer to work out an agreed topic, readings, and assignments for the module. A formal, written agreement is to be drawn up, giving a clear account of the topic, programme of study, assignments, evaluation, and other pertinent details. Head's and/ or Honours Coordinator's approval of the written agreement is required. Regular meetings and reports are expected. Evaluation is based on 100% Continuous Assessment and must be worked out between the student and the lecturer prior to seeking departmental approval. Please register PL4660 manually with the Department.
Note: Students are reminded that performing a literature review alone will not be sufficient to meet the requirements of this module. Some form of data processing/analysis need to be conducted. The data may come from a primary source (data collection from participants) or an archival source.
