Independent Study Form

Physics 598 and 599 are the fourth year research project courses for honours and major students. Students can find potential supervisors and topics on this list. Projects are offered on a competitive basis and students should approach potential supervisors in a professional manner. When the student and supervisor agree on a selection, the student initiates the enrolment process by completing this web page.

After submitting the completed form, an automatically generated email is sent to the supervisor and convener. After a formal acceptance of the student by the supervisor, the convener considers whether to endorse the plan. The convener advises the associate head undergraduate, who makes the final decision on authorizing enrolment. This process can take several days. Students need to submit this form well before the enrolment date.
