Programme description

As a multidimensional phenomenon, it is essential that pain is managed through planned multidisciplinary initiatives and inputs that aim to ease patient suffering and improve quality of life. Through a solid, theoretical understanding of the biological, psychological and social concepts that drive, develop and maintain pain, students will explore the multifaceted nature of pain and its effects. Students will gain an advanced understanding of the specialist area of pain management and will develop the core skills and knowledge required of an advanced pain practitioner.

Each course of the programme is divided into a set of themed sections in which material is presented in a blend of short online lectures, practical case studies, directed readings, podcasts and webinars. This is supplemented by discussion boards that provide directed assessment tasks while input from expert guest lecturers and tutors offer students opportunity for collaborative critical discourse and debate of current issues.

This part-time, fully online programme attracts an international and multi-professional student cohort and offers a unique opportunity to have direct contact with others working in pain management across the world. Within this context, students will gain the knowledge, understanding and evaluative skills to provide advanced clinical care so as to improve outcomes for people living in pain.

This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Health Academy.

Introduction

Understanding, translating and communicating brand stories graphically: it's what today's key branding designers do. Driven by intelligent enquiry and evaluation, MA Graphic Branding and Identity challenges the whole meaning of graphic branding. Explore the strategic thinking underlying brands and look at how that strategy can drive the creative expression.

Content

Driven by intelligent enquiry and evaluation, this programme encourages students to challenge what is understood about the meaning of graphic branding. It explores the strategic thinking underlying brands and focuses on how that strategy can drive the creative expression.

Look around you and you will see examples of the power of brands - on the High Street, within organisations and in the media. From Coca Cola to Virgin, the most successful brands are worth billions.

This MA course focuses on the role of visual identity within branding. The aim is to produce versatile and creative practitioners who understand design within a business, social and cultural context.

It addresses the subject from a broad perspective, covering individual, group, cultural, national, international, corporate and commercial identities. You will be encouraged to look critically at the graphic elements which make up a contemporary visual identity. The emphasis is on practical design, supported by theoretical components and the application of clear research methodologies. As well as developing a deeper knowledge of branding and graphic design, you will gain an understanding of how to develop brand strategies and propositions. An important part of the course involves developing an independent personal project that investigates these principles and their application.

Learning at this level will be about research, intellectual engagement, discovery, interaction and change. The final product for us is not in itself the goal - it is the research, exploration, evaluation and intellectual understanding of branding and identity that makes this MA distinctive.

Introduction

This course brings together artists, directors, writers, researchers and designers to set the agendas that will drive performance practice in the 21st century. Graduates go on to professional practice, working as influential directors, writers and producers in theatre, TV, film, opera or dance, or progress to research degree study.

Content

MA Performance Design and Practice responds to and engages with tradition and change in the arena of contemporary performance and experimental theatre practice. The postgraduate course contributes to the debates surrounding the core territories of performance making, design and time-based practices.

MA Performance Design and Practice also acknowledges the hybrid nature of contemporary performance work and promotes a critical exploration of conventional fixed boundaries between fine art performance and theatre.

Central to the MA Performance Design and Practice ethos is a recognition of international models of performance design and practice - models that have shaped the debates challenging many of the established definitions, functions and roles identified with performance making. From these debates key practitioners, organisations, events and texts have emerged. It remains a core aspect of the postgraduate course ethos to give you direct experience of these models and materials through an inspirational learning placement outside the UK.

Focusing on the sphere of performance culture where ideas and orthodoxies are in flux, the postgraduate programme brings together fine artists, directors, writers, researchers and designers to set the agendas that will drive performance practice in the 21st century.

Structure

MA Performance Design and Practice lasts 60 weeks structured as two consecutive periods of 30 weeks each, (ie, two academic years) in its 'extended full time mode.'

MA Performance Design and Practice is credit rated at 180 credits, and comprises 3 units:

Unit 1, (40 credits) and Unit 2, (20 credits) run concurrently and last 15 weeks.
Unit 3 (120 credits) follows after the completion of Units 1 and 2 and runs for 45 weeks.

Students successfully achieving Units 1 and 2 may exit at this point with the award of Postgraduate Certificate.

All three units must be passed in order to achieve the MA but the classification of the award of MA is derived from the mark for unit 3 only.

Why WBS?

Constantly innovating

We have a long standing reputation for innovation and rightly so. We are a proud part of the global research power house that is the University of Warwick. Our desire to do things differently lies in our foundations, our research, our academics and our methods of teaching. This is evidenced by our ground breaking research in areas such as Big Data and Behavioural Science and by the fact leadership is embedded in, rather than added on to the Warwick Executive MBA.

Our desire to challenge the status quo through our creative approach to teaching uses different scenarios and elements of acting to empower executives to discover new approaches and solutions to some of the biggest business issues.

Challenging business insights with real world application

Entrepreneurial in spirit and practice, we break new ground with our global business insights and empower our students to make a difference in the business and wider world. We do this by constantly challenging ourselves to take teaching and learning beyond the classroom by bringing in leading experts as Professors of Practice and as visiting lecturers. It is this real world knowledge married with our outstanding inter-disciplinary, global research that enables us to build links with international organisations like Jaguar Land Rover, Amazon and Deloitte.

Creating influential global leaders

The success of our approach is evident as our graduates are making an impact in all sectors and all areas of the world. From leading management consultancies to start-ups, from charities to FTSE 100 companies, our graduates are global leaders operating out of over 140 countries.

Business begins here, lives are transformed, leaders are created.

Our cosmopolitan campus allows you to fully immerse yourself in your studies, giving you time away from work to reflect and take advantage of the green landscape around you.

We are only a 20 minute drive from Birmingham city centre and just over an hour’s train ride from to London. Executives who join us from overseas can fly directly to Birmingham Airport, a short 15 minute drive from campus.

Overview

The MMedSci Oncology at Keele has been specifically designed to enable an introduction to a research programme whilst offering sustained clinical interaction throughout the course. Keele University has a strong track record of clinically translational research, enabled by the close interaction of clinical interventionists with world leading academic researchers. This course benefits entirely from this bench-to-bedside ethos and will support like-minded students across this multidisciplinary environment. The course should serve as a platform to develop a medical research career.

As would be expected from such a clinically involved course, much of the teaching takes place at Keele University’s hospital campus located in the Royal Stoke University Hospital, University Hospital of North Midlands (UHNM) Trust. Keele University’s flagship research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine (ISTM) is integrated with the hospital with the strategically aligned Guy Hilton Research Centre being located directly adjacent to the hospital. Being opened in 2006, this research centre offers patient treatment alongside state-of-the-art equipment and translational research. The centre has enabled research active clinical members to drive cutting-edge research and streamline the pipeline to patient benefit. The Oncology Department located in UHNM provides chemotherapy, radiotherapy, brachytherapy, clinical trials, and lymphoedema and haematology/oncology outpatients to a population of approximately 845,000. It is one of the top ten performing Trusts in the UK for delivering Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT). This course offers the opportunity to interact closely with both clinical and research environments, with theoretical, practical and research-centric approaches underpinning the delivery of taught modules, clinical attachments and research projects.

Advances in the management of oncological patients are much needed in our rapidly aging community. New methods are continually being introduced allowing clinicians to better understand and react to patient care in an effort to maximise patient benefit and minimise in-patient time and treatment side effects. The MMedSci Oncology course offers the opportunity to harness the capabilities of cutting edge research to drive new concepts in a clinically transformative capacity.

The course has been awarded 50 CPD credits by the Royal College of Radiologists.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/medicalscienceoncology/

Course Aims

MMedSci Oncology draws together the fundamental principles of current oncological patient management, clinical practice, stem cell and pathology techniques for clinical assessment of tissue and biological samples, with a focus on research-driven work closely related to ‘real world’ clinical practice. Further, transferable skills are delivered through intensive Clinical Audit, Health Informatics, and Leadership & Management modules. The course is open to third year medical students and above, qualified doctors and qualified health professionals with an interest in Oncology.

Course Content

The course is structured to sit within the framework of Keele University’s MMedSci route, with module timescales allowing, if necessary, to be taken full-time within the one year of entry. The structure has been specifically designed to maximise both clinical engagement, support from taught components and research experience. The course is split between non-optional core modules that students must take to progress on the MMedSci Oncology route, with at least 4 of the elective modules as listed below.

Teaching & Assessment

All content is delivered from leaders in representative fields, either from academic staff in the University, or from active clinical staff in the National Health Service. Course content will develop students’ fundamental knowledge of the diagnosis and management of oncological patients. An appreciation regarding patient informed consent and establishment/ delivery of clinical trials is also covered alongside Research Methods, accumulating to a 6 month research project. Students will attend clinical seminars, multidisciplinary and mortality meetings within the UHNM Oncology Department to sustain engagement of the clinical delivery of topics taught throughout the course.

Students will be immersed in the clinical environment focussed on oncological management, with an emphasis on research procedures and translation of cutting-edge research into the clinic.

Assessment will be carried out by attending clinics, lectures and meetings, presentation of a patient case report, and a written assignment linked to the research project.
