The Advanced Learning Projects (ALPs) is a special program of study intended for students who are achieving well in their current studies and who want a little bit more – more interesting, more challenging, more feedback, more open-ended.
These projects are academically challenging and require students to work independently on their chosen project over a long period of time. As there are a limited number of available mentors entry into these projects are based on student applications and prior demonstration of academic achievement.
See the brochure here for more information on how the ALPs work.
