|School||School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)

|Summary||The project provides students with experience of group-based collaborative research work. Students will design and conduct a psychological study in an area relevant to the research interests of the staff member who supervises the project. Project results are submitted in the form of a journal article.
Projects provide an opportunity for students to engage in discussion with a staff member for approximately one hour each week (time, place and frequency of meetings are arranged with the project supervisor). These meetings are intended to function as a tutorial equivalent. Students will be required to spend approximately three hours per week across the semester for successful completion of data collection, analysis and write-up of the work.
