Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

MA/PDip in International Relations with International Law

University of Kent, School of Politics and International Relations
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom Canterbury

Despite their close relationship, International Law and International Relations have traditionally been taught as discrete subjects. This programme is based on a recognition of the need to allow each discipline to be informed by the other. The programme covers the general methods, scope and theories of International Relations and International Law. The objective of the programme is to develop a critical consideration of traditional approaches to the discipline of International Relations. In the post-Cold War globalising world there is an increasingly apparent need for ever-more sophisticated ways of understanding the dramatic changes taking place. At the same time the programme allows students to consider the role, potential and limitations of public international law in international affairs. For some, this will enable an undergraduate specialisation to be developed. For others, it will enable knowledge of other fields to be applied to International Relations. The programme’s interdisciplinary approach is particularly suited to those involved with, or hoping to work for, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, foreign affairs departments and international law firms. Programme structure Full-time students complete the MA in International Relations with International Law over twelve months. Full-time students must follow six modules during the first two terms, divided into three complementary components. There are two required modules on International Relations and two optional modules, one required module on public international law and one further law option. Supervised dissertation work, on a relevant agreed subject, is then undertaken during the remainder of the academic year. The MA can be taken on a... [-]

We asked our students why they would recommend choosing American Studies at Kent. Here are their top five reasons: 1) The variety of modules to choose from, ranging from Literature, History, Politics, Film etc, and the seminars are relatively small in numbers. 2) The fact that it is a varied programme gives you a chance to meet many different American Studies Lecturers/staff, who are very helpful, approachable and looking out for our best interests... 3) ... and you learn to write essays in different styles, whether it be History, Literature or Politics. 4) It’s great, too, to have a choice of programme pathways, including History, Literature Or Latin American pathways. 5) And of course the choice of a year or semester abroad, with a huge variety of destinations is a perennial attraction. Oh, and we can’t count, so: 6) This is also quite a small centre, which allows lecturers/students to get to know one another. Location The School of History is based at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus.

To many, the United Kingdom is the birthplace of modern theatre and the mecca for anyone who wishes to study drama. With its rich history of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Stoppard, Coward and more, the UK is often seen as the place to not only visit the theatre, but also to study and explore as a student. The UK’s emphasis on and continued support for the theatre makes it an ideal place for aspiring drama and theatre students to pursue their studies, at both the undergrad and postgrad level. Undergrad students can expect to be plunged right into the heart of theatre from day one. As UK undergrad degrees are far more focused and specialized, most students will experience acting on a regular basis and be given far more responsibility and roles as an undergrad than they would have at a US institution. In terms of technical and behind-the-scenes theatre, students will be given hands-on training much faster than they would as an undergrad in the states. Many UG Drama or Theatre courses offer an array of specialties such as acting, directing, or even studying plays themselves from an English degree. Two of our partner universities, the University of Leeds and Oxford Brookes University, offer sandwich courses which adds an additional year of study involving full-time work placement right in the theatre industry, often with playhouses or studios. We currently have 16 partner universities that offer Drama and Theatre courses at the post-grad or MA level of study: - Aberystwyth University -... [-]

PGCE

University of Winchester
Campus Full time 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom Winchester

Established in 1840 as a teacher training college, the University of Winchester has built on this history with high quality and innovative teacher education programmes. This PGCE Primary programme trains students to teach in the 5-11 age range. The programme experience is intensive yet intellectually stimulating - it involves high levels of active participation and personal and professional commitment, enabling the development of thoughtful and high quality entrants to the teaching profession. The PGCE Primary is a postgraduate professional programme of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the award of either Postgraduate Certificate in Education (with Masters level credits) or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, both including the recommendation of the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The programme is organised around six modules and includes school experience placements. [+]

The PGCE Primary prepares students to teach across the age ranges of 5-11 (full-time or part-time route). Students undertake studies in all elements of primary education; they extend their knowledge of learning and teaching, of the breadth and scope of the curriculum and the professional skills associated with high quality teaching. These areas of understanding and skill are then applied to classroom practice during two school experience placements. Full-time study is arranged to be consistent with the primary school year and starts with a pre-programme 15 days in school/s arranged by the student. Students are provided with a handbook to guide these pre-programme observations and activities. The part-time route involves a substantial amount of blended/e-learning, for which access to a home computer and the Internet is essential. Students arrange an additional 22 self-directed days in school during their programme. Please note, although part-time students undertake the taught elements on a part-time basis, school placements are usually undertaken on a full-time basis. Teaching placements are predominantly in Hampshire primary schools, but this geographical area often extends to Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Students also have the opportunity to take one of their placements in East London or the Isle of Wight. Students with suitable pre-programme experience may take one placement in a Special Educational Needs (SEN) setting. All students are allocated a personal tutor to support them in their progress through the programme. Progress is tracked both academically and in terms of the Teachers' Standards (Department for Education 2012), which are... [-]

This will involve visits to factories and workshops where materials are manipulated in a variety of unusual ways.... [-]
