The project and dissertation is a pivotal element of the Honours year.

Your first task should be to find a supervisor and project you think will suit you.

Most staff work on a first-come-first-served basis, so we recommend you get in early.

While your Honours supervisor is your first contact when you have any issues, your project is ultimately your own responsibility and a degree of independence on your part is expected.

You should clarify early in the year the pattern of contact that you and your supervisor are going to have.

Support from your project supervisor includes:

**Supervision meetings**- student and supervisor usually meet weekly or fortnightly. Frequency of meetings increases as the project submission date approaches.**Reading of drafts**- your supervisor will read a couple of drafts of your final dissertation providing you provide sufficient time for them - they may need three days to a week to read your draft and make comments.**Honours Seminar advice**- your supervisor will provide advice for your Honours Seminar presentation in the Scientific Communication course.
