To develop further skills in time and project management as well as communications, students are required to complete a work report that is evaluated by the university. While the report generally comprises a project selected by the student and approved by the employer, the employer may also assign the topic. It usually involves analysis of a practical, work related issue. The use of employer facilities and allocation of time to the student for the report is at the discretion of the employer. Specific steps can be taken to protect confidentiality where required.
