Graduation Project (GP) is a group work project worth 8AUs. Each group is to strictly have 3 members.
GP is compulsory for students with cGPA of 3.90 and above to be eligible for Honours
(Distinction) and Honours (Highest Distinction).
Students are to source for their own supervisor and have a tentative GP topic that has to be agreed upon amongst the supervisor and all group members. To find out the research interests of our faculty staff, you may click here.
Students are to read GP over 2 consecutive semesters.
Successfully registered students for HE4099 are therefore not allowed to apply for semester leave or go on any exchange programme, while they are registered for HE4099.
The aim of GP is to train students
to carry out independent research in economics. The project can be theoretical
or empirical in nature. Students will select a topic, and with the guidance of
a supervisor, develop a proposal that is mutually agreed upon the supervisor and all group members.
proposal will serve as a blueprint for the group and helps to ensure that the
proposed research topic is adequately defined and feasible. The proposal is a
one-page write-up to include the following content:
of the project,
objective of the study or research,
schedule for project completion.
Students are to fulfill ALL requirements for GP.
