Interdisciplinary Project

The Interdisciplinary Project is an Advanced Higher unit in which you apply your subject knowledge in realistic contexts. You carry out an investigation or practical assignment. This is likely to involve you working in a college or university, or in a community or workplace setting.

The Interdisciplinary Project will help you to develop and show evidence of initiative, responsibility, and independent working — skills of real value in the world of higher education and work.
