MREM Project Reports

Topics to reflect students’ learning

MREM students are required to complete a comprehensive report during their final term at SRES, reflecting what they've learned during their degree. They present their findings both in writing and orally during a seminar day that is open to the public. Ideally, these final reports are based on activities undertaken as part of the student’s internship placement over the summer. Below is the list from December 2014.
