This module offers students the opportunity of personal study arising from a work placement or research project in connection with their science course. It will be assessed by a dissertation in French, normally 5,000 words in length including any quotations, on an agreed topic for which the student already possesses adequate foundation knowledge and for which suitable supervision can be provided. During the work placement or project year, students will collect data for their dissertation and will prepare a plan in French which will be submitted at the beginning of their final year. This will provide a benchmark for writing the dissertation, which will allow any relevant knowledge acquired during the final year to be incorporated.
