MCP students will conduct analysis and interpretation of the data they have collected for their empirical research project. They will write up a completed study, which will be in the form of a manuscript ready for submission to a peer reviewed journal. This paper can, but does not have to be, submitted to a journal prior to being included in the project report. A concise review of the relevant literature needs to precede the manuscript. The total length of the project report must be no less than 5000 words. MCP/PhD students will complete a systematic review. The systematic review is prepared as a manuscript for submission, including introduction and aims, method, results and discussion sections. The length of the systematic review will be determined by the area reviewed and journal guidelines, but should be at least 3000 words. These assessments will facilitate the write up of their thesis.
MCP Research thesis or MCP/PhD Systematic Review (100%). Students must demonstrate satisfactory performance on all assessments to satisfy requirements for this unit of study.
Enrolment is restricted to students enrolled in the Master of Clinical Psychology degree at the University of Sydney.
