This unit is the first of two in the Safety Science Thesis suite of units. During this unit you will learn about the process of research by exploring a safety science problem in depth by developing and refining an extensive literature review, formulating a research proposal, research questions and hypothesis, and the preparation of an ethics approval application. The assignments in Thesis 1 form the basis of the research conducted in Thesis 2 which is conducted over the following term.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
