The subject provides students with an opportunity to produce an ordered, critical exposition of autonomously gained knowledge, thus demonstrating proper understanding of the nature, development strategies and conventions of research work, with particular focus in their area of specialisation.

The subject concentrates on the middle to final stages of research: from implementation of a research plan, to effectively interpreting and presenting results of the research plan implemented. Seminar group and one-on-one meetings are held with the supervisor/coordinator, to allow students to exchange and/or obtain advice on their topics.

Knowledge and materials prepared in the ABPL90363 Property Research and Analysis are to inform the final research report.
