Goals

The Master’s degree (M2*) in International Economic Law (MINTEC) aims at giving students a thorough knowledge of international economic legal issues.

The programme focuses mainly on the study of the World Trade Organisation, of the European Union in an economic perspective and of international economic development. The MINTEC also aims at providing students with some basic knowledge of international law, contracts and markets regulations. The syllabus also aims at giving international students the basics in French legal methodology and in French as a foreign language.

A study trip to Brussels will be organised in the frame of this programme. The students will have the opportunity to discover the European Institutions.

The MINTEC is composed of two semesters of mandatory courses.

Two tracks are available: the Research track and the Professional track.

  • Students opting for the Research track must write a dissertation. When the programme is successfully completed, students who have chosen this track may apply for a PhD.
  • Students opting for the Professional track must do an internship (minimum 3 months) and write a report.

According to the French grading system, the master’s degree is a national diploma recognised in the European Union countries and which is equivalent to a Legum Magister (LL.M.).

* In the French system, the master program is divided into two years : Master 1 (first-year of Master) and Master 2 (second-year of Master). It is possible to apply either for Master 1 or Master 2.

The St Andrews and Stirling Graduate Programme in Philosophy (SASP) is taught by the Philosophy departments in the Universities of St Andrews and Stirling. Read more

Introduction

The St Andrews and Stirling Graduate Programme in Philosophy (SASP) is taught by the Philosophy departments in the Universities of St Andrews and Stirling. The philosophy graduate programmes of St Andrews and Stirling are now fully merged for all postgraduate degrees and together form Scotland’s premier centre for philosophy and one of the top philosophy institutions in the United Kingdom.
The programme maintains a staff of authoritative researchers that is large enough to teach a comprehensive and flexible range of graduate courses, and to supervise research projects. It offers graduate teaching at a level that matches the best graduate programmes elsewhere in the world, in a wide range of areas, including the history of philosophy.

Key information

- Degree type: Postgraduate Diploma, MLitt
- Study methods: Full-time
- Start date: September
- Course Director: MLitt St Andrews Programme Director: Patrick Greenough | MLitt Stirling Co-ordinator: Dr Philip Ebert

Course objectives

The taught MLitt provides the foundation year of the programme. Modules are offered in three fundamental areas of philosophy: logic and metaphysics, moral and political philosophy, and history of philosophy. The degree is primarily designed as a preparatory year for entry to postgraduate work in philosophy. It provides a firm foundation of general understanding and skills in philosophy which will serve as a basis for sound philosophical research. Graduate students are taught in dedicated graduate classes.

English language requirements

All SASP courses are taught in English. Applicants who are NOT native speakers AND whose undergraduate degree was NOT taught in English must submit a recognised English Language test. We normally require a TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based). 250 (computer-based), or 100 (internet-based). A copy of your TOEFL certificate will be sufficient. Alternatively an IELTS score of 7.00 is also acceptable/sufficient. (Ideally we prefer the IELTS exam.)
The University of St Andrews offers pre-sessional English courses - you can find out more about them on the website of the St Andrews University English Language Teaching Centre http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/elt/ .

If English is not your first language you must have one of the following qualifications as evidence of your English language skills:
- IELTS: 7.0 with minimum 6.0 in each skill
- Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): Grade B
- Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE): Grade A
- Pearson Test of English (Academic): 67 with a minimum of 55 in each component
- IBT TOEFL: 100 with no sub test lower than 20

For more information go to English language requirements https://www.stir.ac.uk/study-in-the-uk/entry-requirements/english/

If you don’t meet the required score you may be able to register for one of our pre-sessional English courses. To register you must hold a conditional offer for your course and have an IELTS score 0.5 or 1.0 below the required standard. View the range of pre-sessional courses http://www.intohigher.com/uk/en-gb/our-centres/into-university-of-stirling/studying/our-courses/course-list/pre-sessional-english.aspx .

Delivery and assessment

The programme is taught by seminars (normally one two-hour seminar each week for each module) and individual supervision. Assessment is normally by coursework: each full module is assessed by two essays.
To gain the Diploma, you must satisfactorily complete all the taught modules. To gain the MLitt, you must satisfactorily complete the taught modules and write a dissertation of no more than 15,000 words.

Why Stirling?

- REF2014
In REF2014 Stirling was placed 6th in Scotland and 45th in the UK with almost three quarters of research activity rated either world-leading or internationally excellent.

- Rating
Both Departments did well in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). Average ranking: St Andrews 3.15, Stirling 2.95.

Career opportunities

Students on the MLitt have proceeded to the further study of Philosophy at PhD level. Some have remained within the SASP Graduate Programme, either at Stirling or at St Andrews, and others have gone on to leading institutions in the UK and abroad.
A large number of former MLitt students have secured permanent university teaching positions. The general training in research and analytical thinking it offers also prepares you for a wide range of careers in various areas of public policy, public administration and governance.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Skills. Art & Design programme (CRS) offers a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the range of methods, strategies and debates which can apply to art and design research. Read more

Course overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Skills: Art & Design programme (CRS) offers a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the range of methods, strategies and debates which can apply to art and design research. It is built around the four elements of (1) methods, (2) critical thinking, (3) ethics, and (4) project design. The programme is ideal for artists and designers who want to develop a research proposal based on their practice.

See the website http://cardiff-school-of-art-and-design.org/crs/

In addition those students for whom English is not their first language are required to have IELTS or have achieved a specified equivalent qualification standard. All such applicants are required to have a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 based upon specific minimum sub-test scores of: Reading: 6.0; Writing: 6.0, Speaking: 6.0, Listening: 6.5. We also recognise the value of prior learning and experience within related fields. This is based upon either demonstrable evidence of assessed learning outcomes with equivalence, or equivalent experience where students “have learned in similarly ambitious ways”. Such claims must be approved at the time of enrolment.

Course content

As an artist or a designer, there are many reasons for wanting to conduct research. You might have a question or interest relating to art and design practice or theory which you want to explore, and it is something which you are passionate about. Or you want to develop your practice in relation to a particular interest or question, with the result that you not only make a contribution to the field but also find your practice transformed by the discussion that accompanies research. Or you simply want to become familiar with and have experience of a range of research methods and critical thinking skills.

CRS covers the ‘who, what, why and how’ of research in art and design. It works with your research interest and shows how it can be developed into a formal research degree proposal. You will become familiar with a range of methods, be guided in conducting a critical visual and literature review, have relevant ethical considerations identified and explored, and be shown how to combine these elements in a formal research degree proposal.

CRS is included as part of Cardiff School of Art and Design’s MA (Art & Design), MPhil and PhD programmes. It can also be taken as a stand-alone programme in preparation for writing a research application. It is taught over two intensive weekends in October and November in Cardiff, with one-to-one tutorials available from October to January.
