"Significant research component" - Universities Glossary Terms and Abbreviations
A course or group of courses assessed solely on the basis of research work produced by the student, and which comprises at least one third but less than two thirds of the total EFTSL for that program. Research work that is not deemed under this definition to be 'significant' is managed as a coursework component under University policy. Programs with two thirds or more research are deemed to be research programs to be managed by research policies and regulations. For more information see policy A-49: Postgraduate coursework programs with a significant research component.
