This module will enable students to demonstrate the skills necessary to carry out a scientific programme requiring significant research. It will allow students to demonstrate the final development of their subject knowledge, skills and understanding through extended research based on laboratory, literature/meta-analysis of databases or bioinformatics research. This research will lead to the presentation of a detailed written report.
The research project and laboratory skills sessions will enable students to carry out at least 35 hrs on directed competency skills-based activities and an equal amount of time on independent work-related learning activities on various themes approved in conjuction with the School Employer Liasion Board. In addition students will spend 230 hours on project-related activities
Teaching Period: Year
Required Prior Learning: Completion of level 5
This module aims to encourage the student to reflect and build upon their subject knowledge and expertise by means of a specific investigation requiring significant research; develop the skills necessary to plan, carry out, analyse and report upon the results of an experimental or analytical programme on a scientific topic; allow the student to demonstrate that s/he has achieved a high level of personal development through working independently with the minimum necessary supervision; allow the student to demonstrate their understanding and application of safe and considerate working practices, particularly within the laboratory.
In addition the module will also encourage students to develop professional work-related learning skills through the competencies skills sessions which have been developed to map to and are responsive to employers requirements.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
1.Analyse appropriate background information on a particular scientific topic and use this to plan a programme of work directed to a
2.Establish a plan of work, then evaluate and modify it as necessary in response to analysis of results.
3.Defend the work undertaken and its written presentation.
4.Work safely with due regard to the Department's Codes of Practice (practical work only)
5. Reflect upon the outcomes of the work and, using scientific creativity, propose additional research desirable to further clarify the area,
and critically reflect upon how the experience relates to their personal, career and academic development and identify future skill and
knowledge development needs.
6. Present a written report of the project in an appropriate scientific form that analyses and evaluates the work and corresponds to one of
the themes agreed in conjunction with Professional specialists including the School Employer Liasion Board
7. Summarise their skills development through recording these and updating their reflective personal statement, keeping a logbook that
records the developmental aspects and results of their project and producing a CV and letter of application
Students will reflect upon their scientific background and intended academic outcome in choosing the subject for their project. Students carry out an experimental project, preceded by an appropriate directed literature survey, within an area of staff expertise in the School of Human Sciences on a theme agreed with industry specialists including the School Employer Liason Board. Although students are expected to work independently throughout most of the project, the initial stage will be under direct supervision as they attain sufficient skills and knowledge to succeed in the later stages.
All students will undertake eight weeks of professional and work-related skills sessions where they will complete relevant IBMS and professional biosciences recommended, employer ratified competencies. Subsequent to this students will do one of the following:
Practical work: Application of scientific knowledge and experimental skills to the design and execution of a subject-based practical project.
Literature/meta-analysis or database analysis or Bioinformatics project: Application of scientific knowledge and research skills to the design and execution of a relevant professional subject-based dissertation or meta-analysis. (Biomedical Science students MUST include elements of data handling and scienctific analysis)
Analysis, appraisal and presentation of the results. Work will be communicated both as a log book, fully documented scientific reports and the reflective personal statement.
Students are provided with the opportunity to develop employability skills and key professional-employer-ratified competencies both in the compulsory Skills sessions and whilst working on an independent laboratory or literature data analysis-based research project. Students will spend at least seventy hours on work-related learning activities. Activities are based on recommendations from the IBMS, the HCPC and employers, (including: safety and good lab practice, standard techniques, data handling and data mining). Work-related learning skills will be demonstrated and assessed by completion of an competency portfolio, reflective graduate statement and CV together with a formal dissertation based on their research project and an oral defence/poster presentation of their project.
A work-related learning Employer Liaison Board of employers, academics and technical staff will agree the range of themes of the projects as well as and the students’ technical skills competency portfolio to ensure these are relevant to current professional and employer requirements and standards. Employer board members and the external exaimer will be invited to the students’ oral defence/poster presentations and prize giving.
The research programme will be carried out in consultation with a supervisor who will normally be an academic staff member of the School of Human Sciences.
The indicative weekly programme shows the topic likely to be covered in each teaching week, please note that the precise order can change. Check your Weblearn module for up to date information.

Weekly program of events 2019-20 Semester 1
As a student in the School of Human Sciences you are expected to attend all timetabled sessions, including lectures, tutorials and practicals. Regular attendance means that you can take full advantage of the learning and teaching opportunities available to you and gain the greatest benefit from your course. Poor attendance not only affects you but also affects others who rely on you in group projects and for peer learning: where group work and peer learning is central to the subject, poor attendance can lead to failure of assessment.
You are required to attend all teaching sessions of this module. If your attendance is unsatisfactory, the module leader will arrange that you are withdrawn the module. Before doing this, the hub will email you to inform you of this. If there is a specific reason why you cannot attend a particular session, you must contact the module leader in advance of the lecture. If the reason is accepted, it will be noted on the register as an authorised absence. You will only be granted authorised absence for one week; if the absence is longer you must discuss this further with your Student Liaison Advisor or Academic Tutor.
The London Metropolitan University Student Charter requires you: “to be prepared for and attend classes punctually, participate actively and respect the learning rights of other students” (Available at: http://student.londonmet.ac.uk/your-studies/studentadministration/rules-and-regulations/student-charter/ )
If you regularly miss sessions you will be contacted by your Course Leader, Student Liaison Advisor, or Academic Tutor and offered the opportunity to discuss any difficulties that might be affecting your attendance. If you are aware that you are unable to attend a class please email your tutor to inform them and the reason for your absence. If your attendance continues to be poor you will receive a warning letter and will have to attend a Disciplinary Attendance Meeting. In addition, your visa or student loan could be revoked and your student status may be terminated.
Whilst, the University recognises that you may need to undertake part time employment to support your studies and may have other commitments such as childcare or family or religious events you are expected to fit these commitments around your timetabled sessions in order to take part in the course fully. If you are aware of an event (for example, unexpected work commitments or a religious holiday) that is going to disrupt your attendance at taught sessions you must discuss this with your Academic Tutor or Course Leader and where possible notify them in advance of your absence. You may also use the Student Academic Advice Surgery, located in the Pods in the Student Hub as Academic Tutors and Course Leaders are available on a drop-in basis or you can book an appointment.
Academic integrity requires honesty in your studies. You should not present another person’s sentences or ideas as your own work. You should clearly identify quotations through the use of quotation marks and references to the sources. Failure to adhere to these academic standards may lead to allegations of academic misconduct, which will be investigated by the Casework Office.
Academic misconduct covers a variety of practices, such as:
· Plagiarism: copying another person’s ideas or words and presenting them as your own work, without the use of quotation
marks and/or references;
· Self-plagiarism: reproducing parts of one of your assignments in another piece of work;
· Inventing, altering or falsifying the results of experiments or research;
· Commissioning another person to complete an assessment;
· Collaborating with others in the production of a piece of assessed work which is presented as entirely your own work;
· Cheating in an exam (e.g., by taking revision notes into the exam room).
For full details of academic misconduct and how allegations are investigated, see the relevant section of the University’s academic regulations: https://student.londonmet.ac.uk/your-studies/student-administration/rules-and-regulations/academic-misconduct/.
All assessments are designed to support your learning and help you develop a deeper understanding of the topics covered in your module.
· Formative assessments provide an opportunity to learn and do not contribute to your grade.
· Summative assessment contribute to your overall mark and grades.
You will be assessed as follows:
Literature review & Proposal (10%) 1500 words;
Portfolio & Logbook (10%);
Report (60%) 6000 words;
Poster presentation/Oral defence (20%) 30 min
You are also assessed by your supervisor on a continual basis by means of the literature review and project proposal (10% of overall mark). This course work component will be used to provide formative feedback and summative assessment.
Students are also formatively assessed through their completion of the Employer Liaison (along with other biosciences professionals) approved professional work-related competencies.
The summative assessment also includes the production of a research/work-related logbook (10% of overall mark), taking into account your ability as an experimentalist/researcher, the ability to plan and reflect upon your work, and the general level of industry and initiative. This will also include your self-reflective graduate statement, CV and letter of application for a relevant job.
The final report which contains (60% of overall mark) is assessed independently by at least two members of staff, excluding the project supervisor. In awarding a mark the examiner takes into account the achievement of the student in terms of the results obtained, the clarity of presentation and layout, and the standard of the discussion including the students’ consideration of the wider context of the investigation. If the two marks differ significantly, the final report is reassessed by a third examiner. An oral defence/poster presentation (20% of overall mark) assesses the students’ ability to give a verbal account of his/her work, to think and reflect critically on the work, and to communicate effectively.
The PDP/work-related learning element of the project will be assessed by means of the portfolio of employer liaison board agreed competencies (where the development of specific technical skills is recorded), the logbook (through the self-reflective graduation statement, CV and letter of application for a relevant job) and the viva/poster presentation (which allows the student to demonstrate appropriate professional standards)
To pass the module, you need to achieve a minimum aggregate mark of 40%. There will be an attendance requirement for the practical sessions. If the module is passed on reassessment, then the maximum mark awarded will be 40%.
