Call for projects for UTS Master of Genetic Counselling students 


Happy New Year everyone.

We are seeking project opportunities for the incoming 2023 cohort of Master of Genetic Counselling students at UTS.  

Projects may be quantitative or qualitative, involving data collection and analysis or just data analysis. Students may work within an established research team conducting a discreet project as part of a larger study. Alternatively, students may conduct a literature review using a recognised methodology.  

Projects must be relevant to genetic counselling (not laboratory-based), and manageable within the time frames of the program (commencing end of July 2023, completing early June 2024) and the study commitments of the student (students are expected to spend 6-10 hours of effort per week on their project).  

In addition to the project supervisor(s), all students will be allocated a UTS supervisor who will be responsible for the student’s learning. If HREC approval is required, the student and UTS supervisor will need to be named on the project approval and ratified by UTS HREC. 

If you have an idea for a project, please contact
[email protected] and [email protected] before Friday 24 March 2023.

We would be very happy to arrange a meeting or liaise by email to discuss project ideas or answer any questions.  

Thank you for your support of UTS Master of Genetic Counselling students.

We look forward to hearing from you.
