Unit description

Students identify a suitable environmental management/education/tourism issue or research topic. They use the skills they have gained throughout their degree to design a methodology suited to the issue and gather relevant information. Students prepare a project proposal, present a seminar and a report. The Integrated Project prepares students for the transition into professional life. The Integrated Project carries a weighting equivalent to two units.

Unit content

The Integrated Project requires students to work on an individual topic. Therefore, there is no syllabus.
