Why should I choose this programme?

We believe there are five essential elements to gaining the best possible postgraduate education in international relations and having the most rewarding student experience.

‌•An unmatched international character
‌•An unrivalled central London location
‌•An enriching and unique education
‌•An inspiring academic team
‌•A breadth of subject expertise
‌•All of this, combined with the small-feel atmosphere that characterises the study experience at Regent’s, provides the perfect environment to study your MA International Relations.

An unmatched international character

There is no better place to study international relations than Regent’s. Our tight-knit community of less than 4,000 students is made up of over 140 nationalities. To preserve this unique breadth of diversity, our admissions policy ensures that no single nationality is ever over-represented on campus.

Regent’s is a genuine microcosm of the world, offering a live example of effective international relations and cultural integration, with unequalled opportunities to establish your own networks. Intercultural intelligence is at the heart of our education, irrespective of the subject. You will find that everyone at Regent’s is interested in international relations, not just your peers in the classroom.

An unrivalled central London location

London is a global hub for international relations. It is home to the headquarters of many of the world’s most important international organisations, think-tanks, and charities, as well as university research groups. We offer the best of both worlds: a location in the heart of bustling central London, with all these resources at your disposal, in a beautiful private campus situated in the middle of royal Regent’s Park. There is nowhere in London or the UK that matches our Park Campus.

An enriching and unique education

Formal classroom-based learning is only one part of the overall package at Regent’s. An important part of your education is enrichment. Our MA International Relations includes a programme of guest lectures from high-profile experts who share their practical expertise and speakers from specific industries to allow you to establish important links to the world of work in the areas that interest you most.

Our students participate in the global Model United Nations conference in New York every year and have won many awards internationally. Our MA includes full ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) training which is based on our well-known executive mediation courses from which famous alumni such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu have graduated. Our Human Rights module is run in association with the Humanitarian Conference in Geneva, which you will attend and participate in.

Outside of your formal studies, you will have the opportunity to meet your personal Careers Advisor in your first week on campus. Your Advisor can provide ongoing support with your leadership development, employability, professionalism, entrepreneurialism, and career management skills.

An inspiring academic team

As well as helping to shape domestic and foreign policy, our team of inspiring lecturers lead key international debates and are regular commentators in the media, including BBC TV, BBC Radio, CNN, NBC, CBC, CBC Australia, World Today, Haaretz, Al Arabiya, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The Independent, France 24, LBC TV and LBC Radio. Our academic team has strong connections with Chatham House, Human Rights Watch and the Council of Europe, and other key organisations in the area of international relations.

Our focus is on developing your leadership potential too. Our University mission statement is ‘Developing tomorrow’s global leaders’, and our MA International Relations aims to empower you to become a leader in your community, domestically and internationally.

A breadth of subject expertise

While our flagship MA International Relations retains the small-feel atmosphere that characterises the study experience at Regent's, our expertise covers a broad range of areas, including but not limited to: international relations theory; diplomacy, war and conflict resolution; strategy and complexity; human rights; US foreign policy; the Middle East; Latin America; Africa; the European Union; migration and refugees; human trafficking; gender; international political economy; global health; humanitarian issues; nationalism; advanced research methods; and energy and environment.

Our taught MA pathway in Twentieth- and Twenty-First Century Literary Studies offers choice, flexibility and the opportunity to specialise within this field. You can learn from the rich variety of research expertise in the Department and you also have the chance to concentrate on a particular area of literary study within the field. Our commitment to research-led teaching means that students are able to explore the cutting edge of the discipline - from the beginnings of the literature of revolution, to life writing, to contemporary US crime narrative. We provide an intimate, dynamic and supportive environment for students of all backgrounds and nationalities.

Our programme offers up-to-date training in research methods and skills. You will choose three modules, at least two of which are from within the pathway, and you will write a dissertation on a subject related to twentieth- and twenty-first-century studies.

An MA in Twentieth- and Twenty-First-Century Literary Studies is often the platform for further research at PhD level, as well as providing an excellent grounding for jobs in education, the arts and the media.

Course Structure

If you choose to take this named pathway, you will be expected to select at least two modules from those available within the pathway and to write your dissertation in an area related to it. Your third optional module may, if you wish, be chosen from the full list of MA modules on offer in the Department. Students may, with permission, take one module from other modules on offer elsewhere in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. All students must take the core Research Methods and Resources module and the dissertation alongside their three optional modules.

Core Modules

-Research Methods and Resources
-Dissertation

Optional Modules

Typical modules might include:
-Modern Poetry
-Literatures of Slavery
-Modernism and Touch
-Life Narratives
-Representing the Self: From Sophocles to the Sopranos
-Post-War British Drama
-The Contemporary US Novel
-The Writing of Poetry
-Blood and Soil: Regionalism and Contemporary US Crime Narrative.
-Modules are subject to staff availability and normally no more than five of the above will run in any one year.

Please use the 'additional comments' section of the application form to indicate your choice of modules as well as to provide a personal statemen

Learning and Teaching

One of the distinctive features of the Durham MA in Literary Studies is that it permits both a broad-based, eclectic study of literary topics from the earliest periods of literature to the present and the possibility of specialisation through designated pathways in such areas as Medieval and Renaissance Studies or Twentieth- and Twenty-First Century Studies. All students take 3 modules, taught in small seminar groups of up to 10, with each module generating eighteen hours of contact time (9 seminars x 2 hours) over the academic year. A strong emphasis is placed on independent research, and seminars usually involve a considerable amount of preparation, including short presentations and workshop activities.

All students register for the Research Methods and Resources module, which generates an additional 20 hours of teaching over the academic year. Again, a strong emphasis is given to independent research. Written work for the RMR module involves significant preparation for the MA dissertation (and in some cases for doctoral study later on). The MA dissertation is supported by three and a half hours of dedicated individual supervision time. Drafts of the dissertation are read and commented upon by the supervisor.

Throughout the taught MA degree programme, all students are strongly encouraged to participate in a lively series of staff-postgraduate research seminars, usually involving invited guest speakers from the UK and beyond.

Other admission requirements

Please use the 'additional comments' section of the application form to provide a personal statement. In addition to your three module choices, you will also need to include a piece of written work of approximately 2,000 words in length on a literary subject. This can be any piece of literary-critical work you have completed recently and may be emailed direct to the Department if you wish ().

We welcome applications from holders of international qualifications. For advice on the equivalency of international qualifications, please contact our International Office at

Psychology has long been applied to the workplace, and has become one of the main professional practice areas for many managers and supervisors of staff. Read more
Psychology has long been applied to the workplace, and has become one of the main professional practice areas for many managers and supervisors of staff.

Applications of the major theories and models of business/occupational psychology occur in the practices of, for example, personnel assessment, selection and training the design of work environments, implementation of training interventions, management of careers, motivation and development of staff and the management of organisational change.

This innovative development at the University of Worcester presents two postgraduate qualifications that apply psychology to business and organisations in general.

The Business Psychology MSc is open to students with a non-psychology related degree, although some elements of psychology or business should have been previously studied.

The Occupational Psychology MSc is only open to those students who hold a psychology degree with Graduate Basis for Registration (GBR) from the British Psychological Society (BPS).

The Occupational Psychology Masters is targeted at those wanting to become Chartered Occupational Psychologists.

Study options

The programme is taught in blocks, with each module being two blocks of two days (Friday and Saturday). The days are organized into blocks of different learning activities, e.g. presentation/facilitation by the tutor, practical exercises (individual and/or group task), discussion and reflection. Importantly, between the blocks the students are supported with additional reading, provided in the form of primary source articles, book chapters and practitioner journal articles. The programme has an 80% attendance requirement.

Modules

A sample of available modules includes:

• Advanced Research Analysis
This module aims to consolidate undergraduate research abilities, and equip the student with the skills necessary to undertake Masters level research

• Personnel Selection and Assessment
This module introduces the student to the means of fulfilling the organisational need to have people in work positions that either have the characteristics required for effective performance

• Personal Development
This module introduces the student to the assessing of performance, and level of performance, of people working for an organisation.

Assessment

A wide range of assessment techniques are employed in the course. Current assessment methods include essays, seminar presentations and research projects.

Teaching and Learning Methods

A variety of teaching and learning methods are used to create an opportunity for students to identify the relevance of learning to their own professional/personal development agenda.

Experienced Staff

The course team are enthusiastic, supportive and well-qualified with staff carrying out research and consultancy in a wide range of areas pertinent to Business and Occupational Psychology. Staff regularly attend academic conferences in the UK and abroad and publish their research in learned journals and books. The research active nature of the staff means that teaching is enriched and students benefit from up-to-date knowledge and contemporary perspectives.

Time Commitment

The MSc is awarded following the successful completion of nine modules. These include the six mandatory modules within the course and the completion of an Independent Dissertation of 15,000 words (equivalent to three modules of study). The course can be taken part-time and takes 1-4 years to complete.

Join the UK’s first MA in writing professionally for three markets – film, TV and theatre.

This programme has been designed with the writer in mind: you attend five four-day intensive workshops over the period of 21 months, and spend the rest of your time writing when you like, where you like, with constant script guidance by professional working writers throughout. The four-day workshops run from Thursday to Sunday, minimising your commitment if you work full-time.

‌•Become a member of a small and supportive group of ongoing active writers
‌•Watch your work being performed by actors
‌•Enjoy free London theatre visits
‌•Analyse and discuss nightly film screenings
‌•Produce high-standard scripts honed and ready for the professional market
‌•Direct peformances of your scripts in our own Marylebone Theatre
‌•I‌ndulge yourself in two years of pure writing as you develop a second career in film, TV or theatre
‌•Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa.

Why should I choose this programme?

Have you ever dreamt of writing the next major cinema release or a gripping new drama series for the BBC, Channel 4 or Netflix?

Can you imagine seeing your own play on stage in one of London’s 60+ theatres?

Or you create a work that starts small but grabs someone’s attention, and grows to become the next commercial screen or theatre attraction?

Perhaps your ambition is to adapt your favourite novel or short story for the screen or stage, and see it performed?

All these are possible. Many classic and famous stage and screen works were dreamt up and written by people with no prior experience of writing scripts, and even no ambition to do so, and many works started on a small stage or screen, and got spotted, picked up and became international hits.

This MA gives you all the tools and tuition you need to join those writers whose work we watch and hear daily on TV, in the cinema, on stage and on radio.

Our intensive programme of ongoing distance tuition combined with five four-day writing workshops on our beautiful Regent’s Park campus in central London, will do more than help you to achieve your Master’s degree: it will prepare you for professional commissions and script sales.

The script is the cornerstone of television and film production. No budget is raised, no actor commits, no director is hired, no studios or locations booked, no crews or stage staff employed without it. From idea to the point of the final script, all productions start from it.

Key skills, aims and objectives

You will develop transferable script writing skills which can be deployed in all areas of origination and creative analysis and which will enhance you employment prospects in a very wide and varied industry – not only as a writer but also as a script editor, reader, developer, producer, director, agent or distributor.

Future opportunities

This programme trains writers, script editors, developers, producers, directors, agents and distributors – because all require a first-hand understanding of the writer’s craft.

This course has been designed as the catalyst for a new career: our team of writers guide everything you do – the rest is up to you.

This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as a Chartered Physiotherapist combined with a PhD leading to a Doctorate in Physiotherapy. Read more
This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as a Chartered Physiotherapist combined with a PhD leading to a Doctorate in Physiotherapy.

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice physiotherapy through an accelerated programme which builds on prior learning and experience.

The initial two years are run largely in parallel with the MSc (Pre-registration) Physiotherapy course with an enhanced research element that leads to undertaking a Doctoral Thesis in the final 18 months of the course.

After 2 years successful candidates will be awarded the PgDip and will be eligible to apply for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration which gives eligibility to practice. Successful completion of the final doctoral thesis will then lead to the award of Doctorate of Physiotherapy. The course is also recognised and validated by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

Course detail

There is a firm emphasis on the development of doctorate level research skills in conjunction with the clinical reasoning and practical skills required of a physiotherapist.

Academic modules have been developed to allow students to develop strong core assessment treatment and research skills and a deeper knowledge of core areas such as exercise prescription and health improvement theory. Integrating the core practice areas of cardiovascular respiratory, neurology and musculoskeletal encourages students to think holistically about their patients and to embed this in their practice. The thesis allows the transfer of practical and academic elements to the clinical application of research.

Stage 1

• Foundations of Physiotherapy Practice
• Exercise And Health
• Clinical Education 1
• Physiotherapy Practice 1 & 2
• Clinical Education 2

Stage 2

• Clinical Education 3
• Physiotherapy Pathways
• Physiotherapy Research Proposal
• Clinical Education 4 & 5
• Enhancing Service and Practice
• Clinical Education 6

Stage 3

• Thesis

Format

The problem orientated model of learning used throughout the course is particularly suited to those who have already experienced a University learning environment. You will be taught via a mixture of enquiry based learning, practical workshops, projects and simulation, working with volunteer patients and in our state of the art Clinical Skills Centre including METIman. During the course, we also frequently invite external speakers including expert clinicians.

Students are required to work in groups and learning occurs through practical and tutorial sessions with some group and individual project work. Experienced tutors with current clinical experienced will facilitate this.

The Doctoral thesis will allow in-depth study of a clinically or service relevant area to PhD level with the student working with a group of experienced clinicians and academics.

Careers

Students will be eligible for HCPC and CSP registration on completion of their DPT after transfer from their PGDip.

A DPT is a requirement for registration in the United States.

The addition of the PhD is likely to add to graduates prospects in clinical research and academic careers.
