The Masters course project comprises two components:

 1. A report detailing the student's practical experience to date in relation to laboratory animal science including the experience obtained at work, from the Master's practicum as described above and from the practicals on the Masters course.

 2. The second requirement of the project is to demonstrate accredited experience in laboratory animal research by presenting an original research paper as first author which must be published in a journal listed in the Science Citation Index (SCI )

The research project may be conducted before, during or after completion of the modular training and work experience placements and the research may be done in any Spanish or foreign research center.

Once completed, the research paper and practical experience report are submitted for assessment by a committee of the Masters teaching staff.
