Independent Learning Project (ILP)

The Independent Learning Project (ILP) provides students with the opportunity to explore an area of Medicine in more depth. UNSW students undertake the ILP during the 4th year of the Medicine program.

All students in the program must complete a 28 Units of Credit (UoC) in-depth study in a single area of interest relevant to their medical studies during Phase 2. By enrolling in General Education courses concurrent with the ILP, the ILP is taken over 4 teaching periods; i.e. a total of 32 weeks.
