When a student wants to discover more about an area of interest, then Independent Research Project (IRP) is the perfect subject.

 Students undertaking IRP work independently on researching, exploring and conducting experiments. Skills in time management, organisation, goal setting, planning and researching will be developed.

Each student chooses a topic of interest, develops a proposal as a basis for investigation and carries out a formalised process of action research. It is conceivable that there will be a diverse array of research topics being undertaken. Areas of research/action can be historical, scientific, performance based, theoretical and experimental.

Students need to be self-directed so they can manage their time well, perform some high-level literature review and most of all, have a passion that they would like to delve into.
