Nevertheless, each class is considered a seminar or lecture, and attendance of all classes of a course unit for which a student is enrolled is thus compulsory . For course units of 15 credit value there will generally be 15 hours of face-to-face teaching throughout the semester in which the unit is delivered, and twice that amount for 30 credit units.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment of all taught course units (to a total of 120 credits) is by assessed coursework in the form of essays of 4,000 words per 15 credit course unit and up to 7,000 words for the three 30 credit Core course units.

Career opportunities

The University-based sessions will give you creative and innovative ideas to take into the classroom.

Aims

Frameworks - the National Curriculum, GCSE and AS and A level.

Classroom skills - lesson planning, setting objectives, task setting, questioning skills, collaborative learning, differentiation and drama-based approaches.

-Develop students' understanding of language
-Teach classic literary texts, including Shakespeare
-Use drama, media and ICT in English teaching

Teaching and learning

The structure of our PGCEs includes both school-based and University-based learning. On our secondary PGCEs, around two thirds of your time will be spent in secondary schools, academies or colleges on placements. You will also need to undertake self-directed study in the evenings and weekends, such as background reading, creating lesson plans and completing written assignments.
The University-based elements of the course are taught by tutors with expertise in teaching in schools and colleges and examining KS4/GCSE and AS/A level English. Your tutors have been outstanding teachers in a wide range of schools and colleges and their expertise is complemented by the experience of current outstanding teachers who contribute to teaching on the course.

School-based mentors actively contribute to the course, focusing on aspects of pedagogy and practice in the English classroom. These practical sessions include: teaching language and literature at A level; catering for Special Educational Needs; catering for students for whom English is an additional language; using technology in the classroom; and using drama as an effective teaching tool.

On placement in schools and colleges, you will observe and teach classes under the guidance of an experienced English teacher, who will also act as your mentor. We will endeavour to allocate you to placements which will secure the optimum educational benefit for your professional development needs. Teaching hours are established to reflect the time that is required to spend on planning and assessment, particularly in the early stages of your placements. Your mentors will help you to plan lessons, deal with marking and assessment and improve your teaching skills.

Career opportunities

On completion of your PGCE and being granted qualified teaching status (QTS), you will work for a year as a newly qualified teacher (NQT). We keep in touch with our former students and continue to support them throughout their NQT year.

A Secondary English PGCE from The University of Manchester is a valued qualification regionally, nationally and internationally. You will be given clear direction, advice and support when making applications for teaching posts and our employment rates are consistently high. In 2013, 97% of The University of Manchester's Secondary English PGCEs graduates were in a teaching post within six months of completing the course, which is higher than the sector average.

Qualified teachers undertake continuous professional development throughout their career, both to maintain the latest subject knowledge and teaching techniques, and if desired, to facilitate progression into leadership and management positions. A PGCE qualification counts as 60 of the 180 credits required for a master's degree and The University of Manchester offers a part-time MA in Educational Leadership should you wish to continue your professional development with a master's in the future.

The MSc Psychology and PGDip Psychology are British Psychological Society (BPS) approved conversion courses. They are designed for graduates of any discipline whose first (i.e. undergraduate) degree is not recognised by the BPS.

- MSc Psychology is a 180-credit qualification which requires no previous experience or study of psychology.
- PGDip is a 120-credit qualification which requires that you have already completed 60 credits of study in psychology.

Successful completion of either qualification confers the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS.

The PG Dip and MSc students are taught together, with the MSc students taking their additional modules from term two onwards. This means that, assuming you meet the entry criteria for both courses, it's easy to transfer from one to the other at any point in the first term.

This course attracts a range of students including those who have recently completed an undergraduate degree in a subject other than psychology or a non-accredited degree and also applicants who have come from jobs in the public and private sector, who are looking for a career change.

Core modules:

Core modules may include:
Biological Psychology
Social Psychology
Developmental Psychology
Cognitive Psychology
Individual Differences
Historical and Conceptual Issues
Research Methods
Statistics
Psychology Research Project.

In addition, MSc Psychology students complete an extended essay focused on a topic of their choosing, as well as 20 credits of 'Contemporary Psychology' selected from a list of available option choices.

Facilities

The University has made significant financial investment in the Psychology Division over recent years upgrading accommodation, facilities and equipment used exclusively for the provision of our psychology courses and for research. We have a first class undergraduate teaching laboratory suite and a second teaching laboratory specifically catering for postgraduate students.

In addition there are specialist suites dedicated to particular areas of interest in psychology, including:

social interaction, group work and interviewing
computer gaming and cyberpsychology
eye-tracking
cognitive modelling and visual analysis
psychophysiology.

Alongside these are new flexible cubicles for student project work, a psychometric test bank library, and a technical workshop.

Delivery and assessment

The course provides lectures, seminars, tutorials and lab classes that facilitate the development of a course identity among students. All of the core modules on these courses are taught exclusively to MSc and PGDip Psychology students by experienced staff used to working with students from a wide variety of backgrounds and with varying skills and experiences. Further support is provided through a dedicated tutorial system. Tutorials provide an opportunity to discuss the course content, studying methods, careers and assessments in small groups.

You will be assessed in a variety of ways and on a modular basis; through examination (both seen and unseen exams are used), coursework (including essays, laboratory reports and literature reviews), oral presentation and via your research project.

Careers

With the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS secured, you will be eligible upon graduation to undertake further training as a professional psychologist (in areas such as clinical, forensic, educational, occupational, counselling, or sport psychology).

Alternatively you might choose to pursue an academic and/or research career in various areas of psychology (by working as a research assistant or associate or by completing a dedicated Research Methods Masters or studying for a PhD), or you may choose to exploit the transferable skills you have learned on the course to pursue a career outside of psychology.

Psychology qualifications tend to be very popular with all employers because you have to be able to write essays and reports, you have to have some basic mastery of research and data analysis, and because they assume you know quite a lot about people!

Scholarships

The MSc Psychology is included in the School of Social Sciences' competitive Masters Scholarship scheme. However as the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology is not a full-time Masters course this course is excluded from the scheme. For more information please visit http://www.ntu.ac.uk/s3scholarships

Why this course?

The MSc Business & Management (MBM) is a 12-month full-time programme. The MBM is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as a Pre-Experience Masters in Management.

The degree provides you with a solid understanding of how organisations work. You’ll enhance the skills and awareness needed to operate effectively in different types of organisations. The MBM is an excellent choice as a path into business management. It’s also for those looking to gain a competitive edge in today’s job market.

The programme has consistently featured in the Financial Times global masters in management ranking. The current ranking is fifth in the UK and 36th in the world.

The MBM is designed to help you reach your potential as a manager or leader in the organisations of today and tomorrow. We place emphasis on self-development and self-discovery, not just classroom teaching.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/businessmanagement/

You’ll study

There are three areas of focus for study:
1. Understanding the Business – through a sequence of taught classes you’ll gain an insight into the major functional areas of most organisations. You’ll explore what they do and learn the language and techniques they employ in describing their area of the business. Our emphasis is on giving you managerial-relevant insight.

2. Developing Management Potential – the Professional Management Practice class will help you understand the key skills needed to be successful in your career. It introduces key skills required for a career in management and helps you to identify and address your development needs.

3. Building a Career Focus – individual classes give you exposure to different areas of the business. The elective classes and the MBM project allow you to decide what kind of focus you’re going to take in your degree and beyond. The Spring and Summer School elective classes bring together postgraduates from across the business school helping you to build networks and knowledge.

Study abroad

The MBM programme includes a number of elective classes from which students will choose. For those who are interested in studying abroad, the 'Managing in Europe' elective class provides the opportunity to do this with classes taught at Toulouse Business School, France.

Facilities

The MBM is delivered in our award-winning building on Cathedral Street in the heart of Glasgow's city centre. Designed to meet the demands of corporate clients and those studying at a postgraduate level, it’s purpose-built to facilitate study, interaction and work.

A modern lecture room in the Business School building will be your base for the year. With good social space conveniently located next to where you’re taught, you’ll find this a comfortable area from which to work. There’s campus-wide Wi-Fi and good quality catering facilities nearby.

Our Business School provides a number of services including:
- a free printing allowance
- a dedicated IT support team

The School's Business Information Service ensures that you can keep up-to-date with the latest trends and issues affecting the business world. The databases available are a particularly powerful tool, providing a rich array of information including:
- market reports
- financial analysis
- international news
- trade journals

Accreditation

The MBM is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as a Pre-Experience Masters in Management.

Student competitions

Each year, the programme runs the ‘Best project award’ where the best final project wins a monetary award. The Dean also awards letters of commendation to other top projects selected by supervisors.
Individuals are also encouraged to participate in university and international competitions. For example, previous students have competed and won key awards at the G20 Youth Summit and Strathclyde Enterprise Pathway competition.

Conversion to the MBA

As a graduate of the MBM, you’ll be offered the opportunity to convert your qualification to the prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

To take advantage of this opportunity you must apply within five years of graduating and have acquired sufficient work experience and exposure to management processes and issues.

The conversion syllabus can be completed through any route of the MBA. That includes studying in Strathclyde Business School’s centres around the world and the flexible learning option. Most people choose to undertake the conversion while continuing their career by undertaking self-study supported by weekend workshops.

For those who started their MBM after September 2010, the conversion syllabus is:
- The Reflective Practitioner
- Exploring the International Business Environment Strategy Analysis & Evaluation
- Making Strategy
- Strategic Consulting in Practice
- Two elective classes
- MBA Project

Conversion generally takes 18 months on a part-time basis.

Pre-Masters preparation course

The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at the University of Strathclyde. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.

You can also complete the online application form , or to ask a question please fill in the enquiry form and talk to one of our multi-lingual Student Enrolment Advisers today.

Learning & teaching

Classes differ significantly from traditional formal lectures. Academic staff maximise opportunities for class discussion and debate about how organisations are tackling real-life business issues and whether their approaches are appropriate in other contexts.

You’ll often be given individual or group-based research tasks to be fed back in class. This emphasis upon practical skills gives you a greater understanding of what’s happening in a wide range of organisational contexts. It also helps you to be able to formulate relevant, practical, responses to the complex issues.

Our teaching is focused on helping you to develop the high level of personal and interpersonal skills that employers are looking for. You’ll find that, from your very first day, we’ll be there helping you to find effective ways to manage yourself, while getting the best from those you're working with.

Through workshops, and in classes, we’ll help you to perfect your ability to communicate the insights you get from the analytical techniques we teach and the research you undertake.

- Living case study
The Living case study is an innovative way of bringing participants to an understanding of what it means to deal with organisational issues at a managerial level. The exercise casts participants in the role of a graduate trainee who has been asked by the management director to analyse the behaviours in the company and present to the board a way forward.
Management consultancy firm Accenture regularly attend the final presentations. These presentations showcase the professionalism of the cohort and the analytic skills they have acquired through this and the other classes that make up the syllabus. Accenture’s experienced consultants recognise the type of issues and behaviours recreated in the simulation and provide hints and tips on dealing with problem situations and communicating ideas to executives.

Guest lectures

All classes on the MBM programme have a number of guest speakers from industry. You're also regularly invited to Business School industry lectures and networking events.

Assessment

The course is assessed through written assignments, group and individual projects, exams and presentations.

Careers

The degree opens up a range of exciting career possibilities. In broad terms, our graduates’ career paths follow one of four directions:
1. Entry into a management programme within national and multi-national organisations. Recent graduates have joined organisations such as: Accenture, KPMG, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, Facebook, Google, Eon, PricewaterhouseCoopers.

2. Entry into a more specific programme where it’s the combination of first degree, or work experience, and the MBM that distinguishes them from the competition. Graduates have been recruited by such prestigious firms as: Ford Motor Company, Royal Bank of Scotland, Ubisoft, Cisco Systems, BSkyB, Schlumberger.

3. Many have taken up an opportunity within their family’s business, developing the business to take advantage of the opportunities presented by today’s environment.

4. Others are pursuing their dream of becoming an entrepreneur and building their own successful business.

Careers

On graduation, you will possess the methodological and practical knowledge required to realise your potential as an independent researcher in various fields of Psychology or in closely related disciplines.
