This course is for people who need to strengthen their maths knowledge fairly quickly before starting their training to become a secondary mathematics teacher.

Course overview

This 24-week fast track course will boost your maths knowledge so that you are able to teach maths up to A Level. To join the Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course, you should already have received a conditional offer for initial teacher training – or you should at least be considering an application for it.

Typically, you should have already received a conditional offer for initial teacher training (ITT) – or you should at least be considering an application for it. Our course ends in July so that you are ready for ITT in September.

For Home/EU students, there is no tuition fee and you will be paid a bursary while you are studying on the course.

You will cover areas such as geometry, calculus, statistics, mechanics, patterns and equations as well as common errors and misconceptions in mathematics. At the initial interview, we will advise you whether this 24-week fast track course is suitable for you or whether an alternative course would be better for your circumstances.

Once you have successfully completed the SKE course and your initial teacher training, your career prospects will be very good. There is a national shortage of mathematics teachers and there are excellent job prospects, both in the North East and throughout the country.

Reports on our provision by external examiners have been very positive. Comments include: “It is clear that the course remains very successful in preparing candidates appropriately for their subsequent teacher training course”.

Course content

This course enhances your skills and knowledge in mathematics, preparing you for teacher training. You will study the following units:
-Patterns and Equations
-Structure and Pattern
-Development of Geometric Thinking
-Nature of Mathematics
-Investigating Calculus
-Enriching and Strengthening Mathematics
-Elementary Geometry
-Development of Mathematics
-Statistics
-Mechanics
-Using LOGO and 3D Geometry
-Errors and Misconceptions in Mathematics
-Matrices
-Investigating Sequences and Series

Teaching and assessment

We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods that include lectures, independent work, directed tasks, written assignments and use of ICT. In addition to attending taught sessions, we encourage you to undertake some voluntary work experience in a school. Assessment methods include written work, exams and presentations. We assess all units.

Facilities & location

This course is based on the banks of the River Wear at The Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s. Interactive whiteboards are available in our classrooms and we encourage you to use mathematical software, such as Autograph graph-plotting software, to support your learning.

When it comes to IT provision you can take your pick from over a hundred PCs in the St Peter’s Library, a dedicated computer classroom, and wireless access zones. If you have any problems, just ask the friendly helpdesk team.

The University of Sunderland is a vibrant learning environment with a strong international dimension thanks to the presence of students from around the world.

Employment & careers

This course enhances your maths subject knowledge, allowing you to progress on to a teacher training programme such as the University of Sunderland’s PGCE Mathematics Secondary Education and then achieve Qualified Teacher Status.

There is a shortage of mathematics teachers in England so there are excellent career opportunities both in the North East and nationwide.

The starting salary of a Newly Qualified Teacher is over £22,000, with extra if you work in London. Teachers can expect to see their salaries rise by an average of 30 per cent after their first four years in the job.

This course, commonly referred to as Part III, is a one-year taught Master's course in mathematics. Read more
This course, commonly referred to as Part III, is a one-year taught Master's course in mathematics. It is an excellent preparation for mathematical research and it is also a valuable course in mathematics and in its applications for those who want further training before taking posts in industry, teaching, or research establishments.

Students admitted from outside Cambridge to Part III study towards the Master of Advanced Study (MASt). Students continuing from the Cambridge Tripos for a fourth year, study towards the Master of Mathematics (MMath). The requirements and course structure for Part III are the same for all students irrespective of whether they are studying for the MASt or MMath degree.

There are over 200 Part III (MASt and MMath) students each year; almost all are in their fourth or fifth year of university studies. There are normally about 80 courses, covering an extensive range of pure mathematics, probability, statistics and the mathematics of operational research, applied mathematics and theoretical physics. They are designed to cover those advanced parts of the subjects that are not normally covered in a first degree course, but which are an indispensable preliminary to independent study and research. Students have a wide choice of the combination of courses that they offer, though naturally they tend to select groups of cognate courses. Normally classes are provided as back-up to lecture courses.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/maamasapm

Course detail

The structure of Part III is such that students prepare between six and nine lecture courses for examination. These lecture courses may be selected from the wide range offered by both Mathematics Departments. As an alternative to one lecture course, an essay may be submitted. Examinations usually begin in late May, and are scheduled in morning and afternoon sessions, over a period of about two weeks. Two or three hours are allocated per paper, depending on the subject. Details of the courses for the current academic year are available on the Faculty of Mathematics website. Details for subsequent years are expected to be broadly similar, although not identical.

Most courses in the Part III are self-contained. Students may freely mix courses offered by the two Mathematics Departments. Courses are worth either two or three credit units depending on whether they last for 16 or 24 lectures respectively. Candidates for Part III may offer a maximum of 19 credit units for examination. In the past it has been recommended that candidates offer between 17 and 19 units. An essay (should a candidate choose to submit one) counts for 3 credit units. Part III is graded Distinction, Merit, Pass or Fail. A Merit or above is the equivalent of a First Class in other Parts of the Mathematical Tripos.

Learning Outcomes

After completing Part III, students will be expected to have:

- Studied advanced material in the mathematical sciences to a level not normally covered in a first degree;
- Further developed the capacity for independent study of mathematics and problem solving at a higher level;
- Undertaken (in most cases) an extended essay normally chosen from a list covering a wide range of topics.

Format

Courses are delivered predominantly by either 16 or 24 hours of formal lectures, supported by additional examples classes. As an alternative to one lecture course, an essay may be submitted. There is also the possibility of taking a reading course for examination. There are normally additional non-examinable courses taught each year.

Twice a year students have an individual meeting with a member of academic staff to discuss their progress in Part III. Students offering an essay as part of their degree may meet their essay supervisor up to three times during the academic year.

Assessment

Candidates may substitute an essay for one lecture course. The essay counts for 3 credit units.

Lecture courses are assessed by formal examination. Courses are worth either two or three credit units depending on whether they are 16 or 24 hours in length respectively. A 16 hour course is assessed by a 2 hour examination and a 24 hour course, a 3 hour examination. Candidates for Part III may offer a maximum of 19 credit units for examination. In the past it has been recommended that candidates offer between 17 and 19 units.

Continuing

MASt students wishing to apply for the PhD must apply via the Graduate Admissions Office for readmission by the relevant deadline. Applicants will be considered on a case by case basis and offer of a place will usually include an academic condition on their Part III result.

The

master of laws (LLM)

at Delaware Law is designed for attorneys from the U.S. and abroad who seek to expand their knowledge in a specialized area of current practice—or who want to develop a new area of legal expertise. The program welcomes graduates of American JD programs as well as international students who have completed a degree in law from a qualifying non-U.S. law school.

Students who choose to complete a general master of laws program at Delaware Law School in a seated class format, may enjoy campus life with our on-campus housing, access to exercise facilities, involvement in student clubs, and the opportunity to visit local courthouses and government.

We are pleased to offer some of our general master of laws programs in an

online format

. Please note, however, that the LLM programs that are offered entirely online will not by themselves permit the graduate to take a bar examination in the United States.

Degree Requirements

To earn a general LLM, students must complete 24 semester hours of coursework. Typically, the 24 semester hours of coursework can be completed in one academic year. Students in an online LLM program have the option to structure their program at a more flexible pace, completing the program over two years. All coursework, however, must be completed within four years from the date of matriculation.

LLM CONCENTRATIONS (ON-CAMPUS ONLY)

Introduction

The Master of Architecture (Coursework) comprises an intensive program in design, technology, theory and professional practice, supported by a range of option units.

Course description, features and facilities

The course emphasises the application of concepts to the design of specialised building projects, with a focus on issues that concern the servicing of complex buildings. You'll learn about the integration of the various technical systems in the making of architecture, continue your learning about professional practice and be introduced to relevant research methods.

The final stage of a professional education in Architecture requires the completion of fully resolved projects taken to a developed design stage. This involves the integration of program development, site planning and organisation, technological and servicing aspects with building planning, material selection and design detailing.

You'll have the opportunity to undertake a number of option units to increase your knowledge in specialised areas of design and architecture.

The Master of Architecture (Coursework) has replaced the Bachelor of Architecture as the professional degree in Architecture accredited in Australia (by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Architects Registration Board of WA) and validated internationally by the Commonwealth Association of Architects.

INTRODUCTION

Join the next generation of senior civil and structural engineering experts. Embrace a well paid, intensive yet enjoyable career by taking this comprehensive and practical course. It is delivered over 24 months by live distance learning and presented by some of the leading civil and structural engineering instructors in the world today.

Civil and structural engineering encompasses a range of disciplines, including road, rail and drainage systems, dams, harbours, bridges, buildings and other structures. Civil and structural designers and drafters plan, design, develop and manage construction and repair projects.

This qualification develops your skills and knowledge in the design and drafting of engineering plans to recognised standards. You will learn about different areas of civil engineering, including construction, project management, design and testing. You will also learn about the design and drafting of concrete, steelwork, roads and pipes, as well as hydrology, stormwater drainage and foundations.

While it is essential that those who work in the supervisory or management levels of this discipline have a firm understanding of drafting and planning principles, this qualification goes much further. To be effective on the job, you will need to know how to apply knowledge of fundamental civil and structural engineering concepts, including geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, engineering maths, and properties of materials. Throughout the program this subject matter will be placed into the context of engineering management. Our aim is to ensure that you are an effective, knowledgeable and skilled supervisor or manager, someone who can work beyond a “plan and design” brief to ensure that a project is delivered effectively.
This qualification aims to provide theoretical and practical education and training such that graduates may gain employment at the engineering associate (“paraprofessional”) level within the building and construction industry.

There are eight threads in the course to give you maximum, practical coverage. These threads comprise environmental issues, engineering technologies, drawing, 2D and 3D CAD design, building materials, civil and structural sub-disciplines (roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply, sewerage), construction sites and engineering management.

This program avoids too much emphasis on theory. This is rarely needed in the real world of industry where time is short and immediate results, with hard-hitting and useful know-how, are required as a minimal requirement. The instructors presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers from industry who have done the hard yards and worked in the civil and structural areas. The format of presentation — live, interactive distance learning with the use of remote learning technologies — means that you can hit the ground running and be of immediate benefit to your company or future employer.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone who wants to gain a solid working knowledge of the key elements of civil and structural engineering that can be applied at the supervisory and paraprofessional level. See “Entrance Requirements”

This program is particularly well suited to students for who on-campus attendance is less desirable than the flexibility offered by online delivery. When work, family and general lifestyle priorities need to be juggled this world class program becomes an attractive option to many students world-wide.

- Site Supervisors
- Senior Trades Managers
- Trades Workers
- Construction Managers
- Maintenance Engineers or Supervisors
- Leading hands
- Consulting Engineers

Even those who are highly qualified in civil and structural engineering may find it useful to attend to gain practical know-how.

COURSE

This program is composed of 4 stages, delivered over 24 months. It is possible to achieve the advanced diploma qualification within the time period because the study mode is part-time intensive.

There are 8 threads around which the program is structured:

- Environmental issues
- Engineering technologies
- Drawing
- 2D and 3D CAD design
- Building materials
- Roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply, sewerage
- Construction sites
- Engineering management

The Master of Arts program offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. The number and details of the courses are determined within the first semester of the student's program.

Students may complete their degrees in either a full- or part-time capacity. Full-time students complete a 24-month program while part-time students complete a 48-month program. Part-time students will normally complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with the subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the thesis.

Although degrees are awarded in specific disciplines, the program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies, rather than by individual departments or faculties/schools.

See the website http://www.uleth.ca/graduate-studies/master-arts/majors/economics

Course detail

Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory thesis. The thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.

Because of the nature of the M.A. program, the thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, it is necessary for a candidate to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission. Candidates seeking potential supervisors should contact either the relevant academic department or the School of Graduate Studies.

Format

The program is typically completed in 24 months and contains rigorous training in microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, and econometrics, as well as elective courses in a range of applied fields. The program is limited to a small number of students to enhance scholastic achievement through close faculty interaction.

The program comprises two components. The first component is scheduled for the first year and requires students to take a minimum of five courses. The second component is the thesis project which must be completed by the end of the second year. The details of the program components are:

- the confidence and know-how to pitch those ideas to commissioning editors and/or rights holders
- work experience on high profile sports content
- brilliant Industry contacts

CURRICULUM

The course philosophy is that you learn by ‘doing’ as well as understanding theory and developing a variety of practical and creative skills. Specific areas taught and practiced are:

- Sports programming landscape in the UK and worldwide

This will explore the outlets for domestic sports programming and the relationship between producers, facilities suppliers, rights holders and broadcasters. Which broadcasters and which channels have access to particular sports and how that is scheduled will be examined. The differences between dedicated sports channels and mixed programming channels and their requirements will be discussed, particularly with regard to scheduling and planning for over-running events.

International sports broadcasters and their relationships with UK producers will be explored and the differences between producing programming for a domestic and an international audience will be detailed.

- Producing Sports and Live Events

This takes students through the production process from planning and pre-production through to transmission. Students will receive instruction and mentoring throughout a production period which will involve researching, shooting and editing single camera items (Broadcast Production students will be available to help with at least some of this), researching and editing archive footage, producing graphics and music assets and booking presenters and guests. Students will also be given a recording of a football match and having logged it, will, prepare a 10 minute highlight package for use in the programme, with the assistance of an editor. The final product will be an 'as live' sports feature programme. Working in teams, each team will produce a short show recorded in the NFTS TV Studio.

- Developing, pitching and responding to RFPs

Both broadcaster in-house and production company development, pitching and costing will be examined together with authoring documentation and presentations for both Requests For Information and Proposal (RFI/RFP). The skills and knowledge are needed to make up an RFP team will be discussed. In addition to broadcasters, event organisers, rights holders and sports governing bodies may also issue an RFP. The differences in approach required across a range of potential clients will be examined and a practice RFP will be issued to students as an exercise for them to respond to. Production Management and Technical advice will be available to the students.

Each sport has its particular requirements and restrictions. A thorough knowledge of these has to be demonstrated in bid documentation and presentations. This module will include briefings on major sports and their particular issues.

- Managing people and being managed

As a leader you are successful if you deliver your objectives and people want to work for you again. Leadership skills will form part of this module as these are critical to getting the best out of production, craft, technical and, of course, performers. The management, as distinct from leadership, of both staff and on-screen talent will be looked at. This module will also consider how to be effectively managed by Heads of Department/Production.

- Understanding the commercials

This deals with many of the issues that confront sports producers on a daily basis in an increasingly complex and fragmented media distribution landscape. Budgets and how to prepare and manage them will be examined and the importance of scheduling and its contractual implications will be discussed. A contract may stipulate a minimum number of matches that have to be shown irrespective of whether there is still mass viewer interest in the tournament after the ‘local’ team has been knocked out. Live rights and deferred highlights will also be covered as will the importance of ‘new media’ and distribution over IP rights

- Placement

Each student will complete a four week internship at IMG.

- Specialist Workshops and Exercises

During the course there will be a range of other specialist workshops on topics including digital content and formats, social media and mobile applications and risk management.

- Graduation Projects with IMG

The final part of the course allows students to produce projects with teaching and preparation being done at the NFTS and at IMG. Participants will use IMG facilities and help from IMG staff, including access to incoming sports feeds, archive material, editing and studio time to create exemplar coverage of major sporting events. For example, participants might create a Ryder Cup highlights show, a live presenter led insert for the World Snooker Championships a look ahead to the Grand National or a studio based ‘Look back at the year’ with guests, clips and live inserts. Graduation Project subject matter will be different each year depending on access and the sporting calendar.

NFTS BENEFITS

Sports course participants will have full access to the NFTS’ optional creative stimulus strands, including: Passport to Cinema (weekly screenings of classic and pre-release films in the state-of-the-art campus cinema); and NFTS Masterclasses - major creative figures from film, television and games screening their work and discussing with students in the campus cinema. Recent speakers include David Fincher (Director, Seven, Gone Girl), Andy Wilman (Executive Producer, Top Gear), Graham Linehan (The IT Crowd, Father Ted) and Hamish Hamilton (Director, Super Bowl XLVIII).
