MICR 495 / IMMU 495: Master's Thesis Preparation

Full Year - 40 points

Course overview

MICR 495 / IMMU 495 is the research project component for the 1st year of a 2-year MSc degree. You will undertake preliminary research for your thesis within one of the research labs in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Because the MSc is a postgraduate degree that requires placement in a research group for two years, before application you must meet and discuss project options with potential supervisors to find a suitable supervisor and research project. MICR 495 / IMMU 495 has no formal classes.


MICR 495 / IMMU 495 is 100% internally assessed, with two assessment items:

  1. End of year progress report (90%)
  2. End of year project talk (10%)
