Biology third year dissertation project.Watch
Just wondering whether anyone knows the nature of a biological sciences dissertation in undergrad. I have searched google aimlessly. I want to know whether it is pretty typical that a dissertation is applied and involving some lab work or whether a more theoretical approach is acceptable?
I hate labs and statistics is not my strongest point but I can do it. I am more interested in theory and was just wondering how much scope there is in my third year project, it is worth so much that I obviously want to work with my strengths.
I am currently doing my final year dissertation at St Andrews and it is 100% lab based and you then wrote up a 7000 word report. That is worth a semester's worth of credits however if that doesn't appeal to you then there is the option to do a literature research based one for a quarter semester credits.
Other unis have less intensive lab times and some do not I offer that at all.... As I said it's vey dependent on the course and uni!
