This Masters degree is delivered in partnership between Edge Hill University and Liverpool Women’s Hospital. It bridges the theory of fertility and assisted conception with practice related to the assessment, investigation and treatment of the infertile/sub fertile couple.

The programme is designed to ensure you will be able to plan and implement a treatment pathway for infertile couples, whilst providing opportunities to focus on areas such as ultrasound scanning for reproductive medicine, embryo transfer, oocyte retrieval and clinical andrology. There are practice competencies to achieve that will allow you to develop and enhance your clinical skills, underpinned by exploration of the evidence base that supports fertility practice.

The overall aim is to ensure that on completion of the programme you will meet and exceed the standards of an advanced practitioner in fertility and assisted conception.

What will I study?

You will study the clinical assessment and diagnostics that relate to practice within assisted conception. Modules cover topics centred round the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the male and female reproductive systems, alongside the therapeutic and pharmacological interventions aimed at assisting conception and the medico-legal aspects of fertility practice.

You will be able to choose from a range of clinical practice modules which are designed to develop specific clinical skills relating to embryo transfer, oocyte retrieval and ultrasound scanning in reproductive medicine. In addition, you may choose to complete a non-medical prescribing module or undertake negotiated learning around a specific topic of interest within reproductive medicine.

An introduction to research methods and approaches will engage you with the evidence base that supports practice and prepare you for the final dissertation. This is an advanced practice project that allows you to make use of your newly developed skills and immerse yourself in a specific area of fertility practice.

How will I study?

The theoretical component of the course is delivered 50% online (via the virtual learning environment) and 50% through attendance at taught sessions at Liverpool Women’s Hospital and Edge Hill University.

The taught sessions typically run on Saturdays so that attendance can be incorporated with clinical work. Online delivery includes podcasts and lectures by consultants working with reproductive medicine and also incorporates interactive sessions relating to anatomy, physiology and pathology.

Several modules contain practice competencies that need to be met so a significant amount of time for learning is allocated to this work in practice supported by a clinical mentor.

How will I be assessed?

There are a range of practice competencies to be met in clinical practice. Case studies, reflections and presentations will also be assessed to allow you to demonstrate your engagement with the evidence base that supports practice and the application of best practice guidance to your clinical work.

Who will be teaching me?

The programme will be delivered by consultant gynaecologists, obstetricians and andrologists from the field of reproductive medicine, together with specialist nurses, councillors and sonographers.

What are my career prospects?

Student Quotes

“I was attracted to the MRes course at Swansea as the subject matter was just what I was looking for.

I previously worked as a Cardiovascular Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne. My employer, the Head of the Cardiology Department, encouraged me to develop skills in modelling as this has a lot of potential to help answer some current questions and controversies in the field. I was looking for a Master’s level course that could provide me with computational modelling skills that I could apply to blood flow problems, particularly those arising from congenital heart disease.

The College of Engineering at Swansea is certainly a good choice. In the computational modelling area, it is one of the leading centres in the world (they wrote the textbook, literally). A lot of people I knew in Swansea initially came to study for a couple of years, but then ended up never leaving. I can see how that could happen.”

Jonathan Mynard, MRes Computer Modelling in Engineering, then PhD at the University of Melbourne, currently post-doctoral fellow at the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory, University of Toronto, Canada

The Computing with ICT Programme is designed to prepare you to inspire the next genearation to learn about digital technology. It is an incredibly exciting time for the subject as technological advances create higher demands for creators of new technologies.

You will learn to use emergent technology to engage and excite learners and to promote enjoyment in learning. Both the English and Welsh Governments have recognised the need for change in the curriculum, and the course will enable you to develop your knowledge and skills to teach both ICT and Computing.

The South West Wales Centre of Teacher Education has excellent graduate employment rates with 99% of graduates going into employment or further study (DLHE 14/15).

Course Overview

The course is split into a number of modules each designed to give you all the skills you need to teach within the secondary sector. You will study various styles of teaching Computing, IT and Digital Literacy to pupils, including lesson planning, resource preparation and selection, teaching approaches for examination courses, class management and control, assessment of attainment, and the impact of IT on learning. You will be assisted in developing the range of your specialist knowledge and skills to cover all the content required for the National Curriculum at key stage three, GCSE at key stage Four and GCE 'A' level at key stage five and equivalent vocational courses.

This will involve concept and skill development in in all aspects of ICT together with computing and innovative programming languages such as SCRATCH at KS3 and Python at KS4.

During your time at university you will have a choice of opportunities to further your expertise, there is the option to join your Maths colleagues for a few hours a week which will enable you to teach Mathematics at KS3 in addition to Computing, IT and Digital Literacy, or if your interests lie with emerging technology then you will be able to opt for Cross-Curricular support and you will be assigned a subject area, this might be any one of the specialist PGCE course. You will then have the opportunity to help develop the digital literacy of that specialist subject for a couple of hours during the university weeks together with exploring new applications to help in the teaching and learning process.

Modules

-Principles of Teaching, Learning and Pedagogy in Secondary
-Skills and learning across the Curriculum – (Welsh or English)
-Investigating Issues in Secondary Education - (Welsh or English)
-Curriculum Development and Enhancement
-Professional Teaching Experience (English or Welsh/bilingual)

Key Features

It is available with English and Welsh medium student provision using long established English and Welsh medium partnership schools and colleges.

Most importantly we have the best employment rate throughout Wales

The course has recently been updated to reflect contemporary issues and changes within the world of education. It is taught by highly respected tutors who have considerable knowledge within their field and chosen specialism.

The course is challenging, but motivating and invigorating, combining practical strategies and skills with academic enquiry and theory.

There are opportunities to investigate areas of specialist interest.

The course is split between university and professional teaching practice, with approximately 12 weeks and occasional days and 24 weeks split between two placements. The weeks at University are designed in such a way that you experience lead lectures both with your own subject area and with students from different subject areas in order to have an insight about how a particular issue relates to different specialist subjects. These may be given by University Staff or by guest lecturers with specialist expertise.

There are also plenty of opportunities where your experience can be enhanced such as involvement with local conferences and workshop events. This year students attended the Technocamps conference at The Liberty Stadium, Swansea, where they had the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from local IT and computing enterprises such as Raspberry Pi and Welsh government ministers. They also had the opportunity to observe first hand some of the innovative programming applications such as ‘Blockly’ and ‘SCRATCH’ being used first hand in teaching environments.

This year it is also hoped that the Secondary PGCE Computing and ICT will have the opportunity to join their Primary colleagues in their own conference on site in Swansea.

Within the newly designed course if you are achieving your QTS early it is envisaged that should you wish to take the opportunity you can arrange a fortnight placement at an establishment of your choice within the Secondary or 14-19 sector. This will enable you to observe, experience a specialist area that you may wish to pursue. It could include special needs schools, independent schools and training establishments. This opportunity is likely to increase your experience and employability.

Assessment

The course comprises of 120 credits, 40 of which are at Masters level and is assessed by a combination of written assignments and Professional Teaching Experience.

The assignments are a combination of level 6 and level 7 assignments and are designed to combine practical teaching strategies and academic enquiry.

The Professional teaching practice is assess through teaching observations by both experienced placement mentors and university tutors against the qualified Teacher Standards.

Factual programmes are at the heart of the UK television schedules, whether it’s '24 Hours In Police Custody', 'Gold Rush', 'Long Lost Family', 'The Great British Bake-Off', 'GP's Behind Closed Doors' or 'Gogglebox'. If you want to learn from key industry figures - including commissioning editors and top producers - how mainstream factual programmes are developed, commissioned and produced today, then this year-long, part-time diploma is for you.

The world's first Diploma course in Factual Development and Production delivered with a major worldwide broadcaster.

-Delivered in partnership with Discovery Networks International.
-Opportunity to pitch to Discovery executives
-Potentially win £5,000 development funding for your own programme proposal
-Part-time, evening course.
-Regular Industry speakers.
-Develop ideas for factual series and pitch them to commissioners.

We welcome EU/EEA Students. Course fees charged at UK rate.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Senior Tutor Simon Broadley, currently commissioning the factual output for STV, is responsible for delivering the course, and said: "The most common reaction I get from the guest speakers themselves is, 'I wish there'd been something like this when I was starting out'.

The course commences in January each year. Producers have overall responsibility for making programmes happen. They begin work in the development stage and work right through until the programme or series is delivered to the channel and transmitted. Therefore this unique course is structured around three key areas - developing shows and understanding the factual programming market; producing a show; and delivering a show and managing the show post transmission.

Students will be taught by leading producers and commissioners responsible for some of the UK’s most iconic UK factual shows such as Educating The East End, Salvage Hunters and Bear Grylls.

'After working in film for a couple of years, I thought the transition to factual television would be relatively smooth. But I struggled to find interesting, meaningful work - until I started at the NFTS. The support we got from our tutor and the confidence it gave me was invaluable. Within a few weeks I had secured a permanent position at an indie and am now an Assistant Producer, working on a wide range of projects.' - Katharine Fish. 2015 Graduate

The course is part-time (one evening a week and occasional Saturdays) over twelve months and is delivered at Discovery’s UK headquarters in Chiswick, London. Participants will leave the course with a portfolio of material developed during the course, including ideas for factual shows, production bibles and treatments. The course will end with students pitching an idea to senior executives from Discovery Networks International; one student pitched show will be ‘optioned’ securing £5,000 for further development with the support of a Discovery executive producer.

Specifically participants will learn about:
-Factual programming trends in the UK and US
-Developing and Researching programme ideas
-Pitching an idea
-Casting Contributors
