Your own projects
You can get involved in research projects as early as Year 1, through a student selected component (SSC), and many students get the chance to focus on more research in their longer SSCs in Year 3.
In Year 4, you will be working on an individual, in-depth research study one and a half days a week (IRP). Your challenge will be to develop an original hypothesis, design a methodology for your project, get ethical approval if necessary, carry out the research and analyse the data.
It is also possible to continue your research at BSMS through postgraduate study.
