Course information

Description: EN:
The Year 2 Paper (EPH2242) is an individual assignment related to issues discussed in one of the four main content modules (EPH1024, EPH1025, EPH2021 or EPH2022) given since the Year 1 Paper. Compared to the Year 1 Paper, the Year 2 paper is more substantial and written without direct supervision. More substantial implies a more systematic approach and reviewing more studies. Furthermore, the Year 2 Paper should contain a critical appraisal of the methods employed by the studies reviewed in the paper. Without direct supervision implies peer group meetings instead of tutorial group meetings. Although there are no contact hours with teachers, students do receive teacher feedback on the research plan (content). In addition, students give and receive peer feedback.
