Student Quote

“I completed the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) at Swansea University in 2010. I wanted to gain practical legal experience before continuing my studies, so found a position as a paralegal at a local high street firm. Whilst the work was interesting and challenging, I knew I wanted to work for a larger commercial firm. I moved to London and began applying for training contracts whilst working as a paralegal in Herbert Smith. I was lucky enough to be offered a contract with Edwards Wildman, a small city firm which combines a small trainee intake with top quality work and high calibre clients.

Before beginning my training I worked in-house for a start-up technology company to acquire a further diversity of experience. The position allowed me to gain valuable exposure to IP work, which is an area of law I am particularly interested in.I am currently in my first seat in the Commercial Litigation department which so far has been interesting and varied. I am enjoying my training contract and look forward to the next two years”.

Our Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases, directed by Professor Andrew Pollard of Oxford University Department of Paediatrics, is designed to provide a variety of different teaching methods (face-to-face and online) directing students through the syllabus required in the EU for clinical training in the subspecialty. The Programme will also be appropriate for those outside the EU.

Visit the website https://www.conted.ox.ac.uk/about/pgdip-in-paediatric-infectious-diseases

Description

The Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases is supported by the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID), the Paediatric European Network for Treatment of AIDS (PENTA), and the IIC Course: Oxford.

Worldwide, two thirds of the deaths in children under five years of age are caused by infectious diseases, and the prevention and treatment of infections in children is the number one priority for global health.

Reflecting this imperative, we recognise that investment in research and intervention programmes related to leading causes of childhood morbidity and mortality, including acute respiratory infections, measles, infectious diarrhoea, malaria, HIV, and TB is vitally important. We believe that professionally-oriented education in paediatric infectious diseases is essential in the training of clinicians and clinical academics who will provide the future leadership in this key area for global health.

The Postgraduate Diploma also places the practice of paediatric infectious diseases in the broader context of applied sciences, such as pathogenesis, population biology and epidemiology. The Programme focuses on clinical (applied) aspects, underpinned by basic science to provide both breadth and depth.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases is a part-time two-year programme taught via a blend of online and residential components.

Syllabus:

- Infectious Syndromes
- Therapeutics and Infection Control
- Epidemiology, Immunity and Immunization
- Bacterial Infections
- Important Viral Infections and Prions
- Imported and Tropical Diseases and Mycobacterial Infection
- Congenital and Neonatal Infection, Sexually Transmitted Disease, and Parasitic Disease
- The Immunocompromised Host
- Fungal Infection

Dates:
The 2016 Paediatric Infectious Diseases Programme starts in September 2016. The next PENTA-ESPID HIV course online component beings in May 2016, with the residential component taking place in October 2016. The Infection and Immunity in Children: Oxford residential course takes place in June/July each year.

The Postgraduate Diploma is normally completed within two years.

The following course components can be taken before applying for the Postgraduate Diploma and if successfully completed and if taken within two years of starting the Postgraduate Diploma, then these elements of the Programme requirements will normally be dispensed:The Infection and Immunity in Children course, which runs each summer in Oxford, and thePENTA-ESPID online and residential HIV course. For example, the online PENTA-ESPID paediatric HIV Medicine course starts in May each year culminating in the residential course in October. Whether undertaken before registration for the Postgraduate Diploma or within the two-year duration of the Postgraduate Diploma, all components must be completed in order to satisfy the requirements of the Postgraduate Diploma. See the course structure above for further details.

Course aims

The Programme will provide students with:

- Knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established principles of paediatric infectious diseases, and of the way in which those principles have developed

- An ability to apply underlying concepts and principles outside the context in which they were first studied, including, where appropriate, the application of those principles the real world of paediatrics

- Knowledge of the main methods of enquiry in the paediatric infectious diseases and ability to evaluate critically the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems

- An understanding of the limits of your knowledge, and how this influences analyses and interpretations based on that knowledge

At the end of the Programme students will know and understand how to:

- Use your broad knowledge of paediatric infectious disease in your practice and have learnt where to find the necessary resources when you have reached your limit of knowledge

- Understand how to find evidence-based information to facilitate rational decision making in diagnosis and management of children with infection

- Effectively communicate information, arguments, and analysis about paediatric infection, in a variety of forms, to specialist and non-specialist audiences

- Undertake further training, develop existing skills, and acquire new competences that will enable you to assume significant responsibility within organisations

- Qualities and transferable skills necessary for your future career in paediatrics and infectious diseases

Since the advent of the Health and Safety at Work Act the philosophy of managing work based hazards has changed from a reactive rule based protocol to one based on the assessment and management of risks. More recently there has been the recognition of the need to go beyond simply avoiding unwanted outcomes and developing a wider dimension of organisational resilience.

The systematic assessment and management of workplace hazards demand the development of existing knowledge and skills. Good employers now recognise that managing health and safety has not only legal and moral imperatives, but also makes good business sense.

Loughborough University has been providing training in occupational health and safety management for more than 35 years. On successful completion, participants will be able to make better informed decisions concerning the management of occupational health and safety.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/ohsm/

About the Programme

The programme is aimed at professional health and safety advisors and managerial, engineering and scientific staff with responsibilities for occupational health and safety. It gives them the academic knowledge and skills to evaluate operational requirements against health and safety policies which have to respond to a changing regulatory, social and economic climate.

The courses are designed and delivered for participants working within the discipline who can attend the University for a series of short courses ranging from one to four days. Such attendance promotes a much more fulfilling learning experience through direct interaction with acknowledged experts and other students and avoids the isolation of courses delivered entirely by distance learning.

The objectives of the programme are to provide:
- A comprehensive understanding of current occupational health and safety management issues;
- The academic basis for Chartered Status of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) (for holders of the Diploma/MSc); and
- Flexible training for working professionals who do not have the opportunity for full-time study.

Professional Development

‌Holders of the Diploma (and MSc) satisfy the requirements for graduate membership of IOSH and membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM), providing professional recognition for your studies.

Adding value to your employer

The course is designed to be challenging, career enhancing and geared towards real life management, developing skills you can apply to the benefit of your organisation, and assessing these through work-based assignments which provide a direct return on investment.

Loughborough University offers experienced managers the opportunity to gain recognised university qualifications in Leadership and Management, with the benefits of part-time learning to fit around your work schedule.

You can choose to enrol for the whole MSc programme or only for the Certificate. On completion of the certificate, you can then register for the Diploma. Similarly, on completion of the Diploma, you can register for the MSc dissertation.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/lam/

About the Programme

The postgraduate programme in Leadership and Management is specially designed for experienced managers seeking to develop practical skills whilst working towards a university award. In providing a general management qualification, the programme is suitable for managers from all functions and all industry sectors. The course covers a wide range of areas, including finance, marketing, leadership and managing people.

At each stage of the programme, you will be asked to draw on your work experience and to apply your learning within your own organisational context:
- Learning objectives reflect the needs of today’s business environment, developing skills and knowledge immediately relevant to you and your workplace.
- Assessments require you to relate each topic to your experience, therefore developing your skills in practical ways.

From beginning to end, therefore, you and your organisation will benefit from investment in this programme.

Programme aims:

- Develop individual skills and prepare participants for management career progression in their chosen industry sector, mainly through development of their technical knowledge and skills, and their conceptual and analytical abilities;

- Prepare participants for management roles in which they will be expected to contribute towards the functional and strategic management of their organisations;

- Enable participants to see ways in which theory can be applied in practice to complex issues with the aim of improving business and management practice;

- Provide a relevant, practical and constantly updated programme through close links with business organisations.

The Certificate level is of particular benefit for experienced first line managers and will provide a solid foundation to then progress onto the Diploma. The Diploma is designed for those either already at middle management level or for those progressing from the Certificate. It also provides a route to progressing onto the MSc (1 year dissertation).

Structure

In response to the needs of busy managers, the programme is offered on a part-time basis. The minimum period of study for the award of MSc is thirty calendar months. The minimum period of study for the award of Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma is twelve and eighteen months respectively.

Delivery

Past students have particularly appreciated the duration and delivery methods of this programme. The Certificate and Diploma programmes are part-time and will normally extend over a period of 12 to 18 months, thereby allowing time for application and reflection. Modules for both the Certificate and Diploma are taught as 2-day or 3-day workshops instead of weekly classes. Our format facilitates participation by managers from a wide geographical area. We can recommend on- and off-campus accommodation.

Learning methods are tailored to participants' needs, including a combination of:
- short inputs
- pair and group work
- case studies
- distance learning and
- work-based assignments and projects.

For the MSc element of the programme, participants have12 months to attend training in research methods and project design as part of designing, implementing and writing up a research project exploring a topic of their own choice.

Assessment

There are no exams for this programme.

Each module is assessed through coursework. Our coursework assignments require the student to read and research the topic of the module, to address a question that is based within a work environment. Several modules require the student to draw on their own work experience and/or their current work situation.

In addition to coursework, modules may be assessed through group presentations.

Content

Each programme starts with an induction event where you will review and improve your skills in learning, researching and writing. Following this, core modules address the fundamentals of management and business competitiveness. The Diploma programme builds upon these fundamentals with further modules, as well as two optional modules, so that you can explore areas of specific interest to you. At each stage, the content of assessments addresses real work examples within your own past and current work experience.

For your MSc project, you agree the topic with the University to address a problem directly impacting upon your work area. As part of that project, you will be expected to demonstrate benefits to your organisation and your own learning.

Core modules (Certificate, Diploma and MSc):
All students irrespective of their qualification aim will study the following modules:
- Financial Management
- Managing and Leading People
- Operations Management
- Marketing Management

What our students say

“Studying at London Met was a great chance for me to step away from my day job and to meet, talk and learn from lecturers and students from diverse backgrounds. This inspired me to look and think differently and not be afraid to try new ideas at work.” - Ayo Abbas, Marketing Communications Manager

“Studying for the CIM post graduate diploma is a real commitment and it's important to make the right choice of course provider. I switched to the London Metropolitan University after a false start at another university as I'd heard they had high pass rates and the teachers were of a high standard. I wasn't disappointed. The location and course dates were really convenient and the tutors were passionate about their subjects, often bringing their own experience to bear and encouraging other students to participate. I enjoyed the supportive working environment and went on to study business at master's level so found the CIM course a great help both professionally and academically.” - Abigail Brown, Head of Health Marketing

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying for the CIM qualifications at London Metropolitan University. Working full time in the City, the location was convenient and I was impressed with their prior pass rates. Although initially wary of being back in a classroom situation, I enjoyed the networking it provided and found it gave me extra motivation to complete the course. I appreciated the practical experience of the tutors, and found them very approachable.” - Caroline Wright, Marketing Manager

After the course

You will acquire skills and understanding to perform at management level, and students have gone on to become heads of marketing at a wide range of organisations, such as market intelligence specialist S&P Global, international construction company Mace Group, and the charity Cancer Research UK.

Attendance options

Typically students complete this course in twelve to eighteen months but the new modular pathway qualification has been structured to reflect the need for a flexible approach. Therefore each module can also be taken as a self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full certificate.

Evening classes take place at our Moorgate campus from 6pm - 9pm. These can be taken as a full course or as a self-contained award. There are seven weekend classes.

Our Graduate Diploma in Economics and its new pathway, the Graduate Diploma in Quantitative Economics, fill a critical gap in the market for postgraduate training in economics. Read more
Our Graduate Diploma in Economics and its new pathway, the Graduate Diploma in Quantitative Economics, fill a critical gap in the market for postgraduate training in economics. If you have an undergraduate degree in another subject area - however distant from economics - but wish to switch to economics, the Graduate Diploma in Economics and the Graduate Diploma in Quantitative Economics are specifically designed to allow you to do just that, without spending 3 or 4 years studying for a second undergraduate degree. They provide rigorous and intensive training, spread over 1 or 2 years, after which you will be able to compete on equal terms with students graduating with undergraduate degrees in economics.

Many of our students require a level of economic knowledge in their jobs that is usually acquired at an undergraduate level; many of them work for City institutions, the Bank of England, government departments and economic regulators. This Graduate Diploma provides them with a sound knowledge of the core analytical tools of economics, coupled with some training in econometrics - the statistical side of the discipline.

The Graduate Diploma in Quantitative Economics is designed for students who wish to go on to Master's-level study, with the ultimate ambition of becoming a professional economist, whether in the private or public sector, or an academic economist (which requires further study to PhD level). Many students go on to MSc and MPhil/PhD programmes at Birkbeck and other top UK universities.

Uniquely, this programme provides training specifically designed for such students. All modules on the programme are designed carefully around targeted, accelerated learning, in contrast to conversion courses in other universities that simply offer modules that are already part of other undergraduate programmes.

This programme is also available for distance-learners, as a purely online course. For both face-to-face and online students, all lectures are made available on video, and all course materials are also available online.

You will not need any prior training in the subject. The programme will give you a thorough grounding in the fundamental ideas and methods of modern economics, and you will learn to apply economic reasoning to practical problems. Crucially, you will also develop the necessary mathematical and statistical tool-kit for studying economics. A background in a mathematical discipline is an advantage, but not essential; pre-sessional courses beginning in September provide an accelerated revision of core mathematics skills, starting at roughly GCSE level, but progressing very rapidly to more advanced techniques.

All students will be admitted to the Graduate Diploma in Economics in the first instance, but you will be offered the opportunity to transfer to the Graduate Diploma in Quantitative Economics. This includes an additional module that introduces you to more technical material and bridges the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate study in economics.

The 1-year programme is taught exclusively in the evenings and is, thus, open to students in full-time employment, but the programme proceeds at an intense pace and the workload is very heavy, so this option is usually only pursued by students with a strongly quantitative background. The more common route is to take the programme over 2 years, with the first year focused primarily on quantitative training. All students have the option of being considered for the intensive 1-year route, though, based on their performance in the mid-term tests in week 6 of the first term of the programme.
