In this Researching Biology and Health Science project module from The Open University UK you will undertake individual investigations within a range of defined topics: stem cells, emerging infectious disease, the human senses and coevolution.

About

You’ll need access to scientific literature, probably from electronic library sources. The study materials provide a guide to planning and conducting project work; help with searching and using the literature; and writing a report, but ultimately this is a chance for you to plan and execute a piece of work for yourself. You should study this project as the final module of your degree as you will need to apply knowledge and skills from your prior studies.

Programme Structure

What you will study

Early in the module you will be guided by the study materials and by your tutor to select a specific aspect of your chosen topic to investigate in depth. Unless you have access to an academic library, you may find that you have to spend up to two-thirds of your time in the early part of the module online, identifying suitable material to inform your choice of project topic from the electronic journals available via the Open University Library. In discussion with your tutor, you will define your individual investigation that must cover the following four components: contextualisation, application or development, detailed analyses, and future directions.
