4. Beautiful campuses and the ideal postgraduate study environment

We provide postgraduates with an inspiring and supportive environment in which to study for a Masters or PhD degree.

Two campuses are based in the historic city of Exeter while the Penryn Campus near Falmouth offers the very latest academic, research and residential facilities.

A safe, student-friendly city, Exeter is consistently rated one of the best places to live in the UK for the quality of its facilities, low crime rate and fantastic countryside, while students based in Cornwall study at a campus where the environment and sustainability underpin much of the research and teaching, in county renowned for its glorious coast and natural beauty.

In order to maintain our growing international reputation, we are investing significantly in the very latest facilities. Iconic new buildings like the Forum have been created through a £475 million investment programme in new buildings, research centres, student residences and campus facilities.

But ambition and success have not changed the University’s charisma, or the attractiveness of its campuses. Ask any Exeter graduate about their memories and many will talk about the friendliness of staff and students. First class teaching and research combine with a relaxed and approachable atmosphere.

Postgraduates are an integral part of the University and are well represented through the award winning Students’ Guild. This offers Masters students support through the Postgraduate Forum and Postgraduate Society as well as a wide range of clubs and societies.

‘There is energy, dynamism and talent at Exeter in great abundance.’ Jonathan Dimbleby, Broadcaster, Honorary Graduate

Campus Full time Part time 12 - 24 months September 2017 United Kingdom Exeter + 1 more

Addressing the urgent need for trained food security scientists, this programme provides multi-disciplinary training in sustainable agriculture and global food security. [+]

There has never been a more urgent need to train scientists in the area of food security, equipped with skills in agronomy; plant pathology, plant disease and plant genetics; and knowledge of modern agricultural systems and agricultural policy. The Royal Society report Reaping the Benefits: science and the sustainable intensification of global agriculture published in October 2009, provided the clearest evidence of the challenge of ensuring global food security during the next 50 years. Crop yields need to rise significantly, but in a manner that requires much lower dependency on chemical intervention and fertilizers. Meeting the challenge of sustainable agriculture This programme was developed in collaboration with the agricultural industry, government agencies including Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (defra) and The Food and Environment Research Agency (fera), and farmers and food manufacturers, to provide a multi-disciplinary training in sustainable agriculture and global food security. Research-led teaching in molecular plant pathology, plant sciences and microbiology is strongly supplemented by Rothamsted Research expertise in grassland management, soil science and sustainable farming systems. Leading social scientists also provide valuable input in rural land use and the rural economy. The combination of expertise in both arable and pastureland systems ensures a truly rounded learning experience. The curriculum takes account of the key skills shortages in the UK to train highly skilled individuals who can enter government agencies, agriculture and food industries and fulfil very valuable roles in scientific research, advice, evaluation, policy development and implementation tackling the challenges of food security. The programme provides opportunities to gain industrial and practical experiences including field trips. Entry requirements Normally at least a 2:1 Honours degree or equivalent in biological science or relevant subject. Consideration will be given to appropriate professional background on a case-by-case basis involving an interview. If you are an international student, please contact us for more information.

The inter-disciplinary study of human & animal interactions The MA in Anthrozoology will be of interest to anyone who would like to investigate the many and varied ways in which humans perceive, engage, compete and co-exist with non-human animals in a range of cultural contexts. The Distance-Learning MA Anthrozoology is especially relevant in terms of continual Professional Development for individuals who are involved with the care of non-human animals in a professional capacity (eg, vets, veterinary nurses/technicians, animal trainers, dog wardens, zoo keepers, conservationists, charity workers etc.), as well as for students who have completed social science undergraduate degrees or who have a science background and would like to expand their research interests into the social sciences. The distance learning format is sufficiently flexible to enable you to fit it in around your existing professional and personal commitments. The MA has won a Humane Society of the United States Distinguished Course Award and the programme Director is the winner of the Association of Social Anthropologists' Award for Excellence 2011 and has published a core textbook on Anthrozoology.

You will acquire a range of transferable skills which will stand you in good stead for a career working with or thinking about nonhuman animals. Moreover, because every aspect of contemporary human life involves nonhuman animals in some capacity, from the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the medicines which sustain us, then regardless of your field of employment, you stand to gain new perspectives on life arising from a deeper understanding of the human-nonhuman bond. Several of the modules require you to undertake independent research on a topic of your choosing. These assignments can be approached strategically, with career aspirations or professional development in mind. For example, if you wish to pursue a career in the zoo sector, then you might decide to focus your assignments on different issues relating to zoos and wildlife parks. There is also a specific module devoted to the practical application of anthrozoological knowledge (Applied Anthrozoology) where you will be invited to explore the ways in which academic research can and does inform the treatment of animals on the ground, along with the theoretical, ethical and methodological issues associated with such activity. On successful completion of the MA you will have the skills to pursue a PhD or follow a career working anywhere that species meet. You will also have the skills to enable progression into research and the communication skills required for a wide range of careers. Exeter’s reputation amongst graduate employers has helped postgraduates into successful careers in research, high technology industries, management, personnel, legal and advertising services amongst others.

Our MA in Translation has a strong focus on practice, in how you are both taught and assessed. You will learn through a mix of small tutorials specific to your language specialism and larger integrated lectures. Whichever of our seven languages you focus on you will become part of our wider postgraduate translation community. There are three pathways to choose from. The Specialist Translation pathway is designed to prepare you for a career in the translation industry. The Research pathway takes a more academic approach and would suit anyone looking to pursue a research career. If you specialise in one of our European languages you might consider the Literary pathway which will focus your attention on the translation of prose, poetry and dramatic texts with encouragement to express your creativity. The Modern Languages Department also operates the Centre for Translating Cultures, an active community of staff and postgraduate students that we hope you will become part of. Teaching is split between methodology and practice, to give you a broad choice of potential careers. As well as the top academic staff you will be taught by practising translators who have an inside track on the industry. If you choose to do a practice-based dissertation (most of our students do) you will produce 20,000 words that show your ability to research and work in your chosen field. That’s a quarter of a book, perfect for a portfolio to present to a potential employer. Practice is what we believe in at Exeter because we know what practice makes. European Languages Only The Literary Translation pathway is distinguished from other similar courses since it focuses on the skills necessary to translate literary works into English and comprises a strong creative element. Learning and teaching Most of your classes will be small group seminars where you will explore both the methodology behind translation and its application to practical situations. As well as seminars specific to your language you will attend larger group lectures that bring together all specialisms as a single translation community. Inside your seminars you will learn collaboratively through presentations and round table discussions. Outside your seminars you will have the opportunity to talk to your tutors on a one-to-one basis as they support your learning throughout the year. You will learn from professionals who are experienced in working in the translation industry and will receive advice on how to present yourself to employers in your chosen field. The first two terms of your year will be spent studying the compulsory and optional modules relevant to your pathway. Your understanding and progress will be assessed through a range of coursework. The third and final term will be devoted to your dissertation, a 25,000 word original project on the topic of your choice. Entry requirements If you are an international student, please contact us for more information. Chinese language A first degree, equivalent to a UK 2.1 Honours degree, in English, Linguistics, Translation, or a similar subject. Exceptions may be made if you are already working within the translation industry. Chinese must be your mother tongue, or you must be able to demonstrate a native-equivalent knowledge of Chinese, in addition to a clear interest in translation theory and practice.
