Students can choose to start in September, May or January

About the course

This scheme aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between academia and industry. Students must complete three taught modules including research methods and a 120 credit work-based dissertation / research thesis (approximately 20,000 words in length).

While the primary academic focus is on the completion of an advanced piece of research, the collaborative route provided by a work-based research project provides an ideal opportunity to embed new knowledge in the work place and ensure that research is relevant to industry. As such, it is crucial that a student’s employer is supportive of both their research aims and the time commitment that the proposed research will involve. Self-employed students should aim to undertake research which will be closely aligned to their business.

Students may build on the MRes to work towards a Professional Doctorate.

Course structure and content

An MRes can be completed in 2-5 years but we would expect most students to spend 1 year on their taught modules and 2 years on their work based dissertation. 12 or 14 weeks for one module by distance learning. Three intakes per year (January, May, September).

Students will be eligible for a UK Student loan if their course is completed within 3 years.

Core modules:

MRes Research Project

Research Methods

Optional modules:

The MRes comprises three taught modules (including Research Methodologies and Advances in Bioscience) followed by a 120 credit work-based dissertation (20,000 words).

Your programme of study

Intellectual Property Law is required for a surprising amount of industries across creative, marketing, architecture, all new business in terms of trade marks and brand protection, innovations in terms of new product patents and intellectual property rights, internet businesses including e-commerce,  and many many other organisations and businesses. It is international in its protection with variations upon how the law is interpreted depending upon where you trade. For anyone trading internationally it is essential to know how the law is interpreted in the country you are selling in.

Intellectual property law protection can include a wide range of different levels of protection which include full rights, in which you give all rights for a specific tangible or intangible item with specifications written down to protect your idea, partial rights when licensing to others either long term or short term, creative commons to allow access to the idea and monetisation by a different method or the ability to license at specific times and periods of time, specific tangible products. All companies with a creative component are at risk of infringement from when they start to trade to when they cease business so it is a question of how to manage intellectual property, keep growing and trading and benefitting from the turnover that your creative assets bring into your company.

If you want to specialist in intellectual property law this can be a hugely challenging and rewarding area and you are guaranteed to have no two clients that are alike in terms of needs. Intellectual property law is very closely linked to international trade, contracts, exporting, importing, and extending monetisation of assets. You study the deep issues and challenges of intellectual property law and its application to innovation, creativity, and creative development within a business or organisational context at international level.

Courses listed for the programme

  • Critical Legal Thinking and Scholarship x2
  • Master of Law Dissertation

Optional

  • International Intellectual Property
  • Cultural Property Issues: Law, Art, and Museums
  • Intellectual Property Law, Human Rights and Development
  • Trade Marks and Brand Development

Better government through technology

e-Government is a growing area. As our world becomes increasingly connected through ICT, governments need skilled professionals who understand how to manage the impact of these ever-evolving technologies.

At Victoria's School of Government, you'll discover innovative new uses for ICT—building new ways for communities to engage with government and use public services.

A unique qualification in an emerging field

Victoria's Master of e-Government is the only course of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.

Focusing on the management rather than the technical aspects of e-Government, your courses are designed by experts in government and ICT and taught by leading academics in this new field.

International students, global insights

Be part of a school that attracts not only local professionals but a talented group of international students—many highly experienced employees of government organisations in their own countries. Take advantage of the diverse experience in public policy and public management these students take to the classroom—providing valuable insights and bringing the comparative perspective alive.

What you'll study

The MEGov will give you the skills and knowledge to manage transformational government ICT projects, using real-life examples from New Zealand and overseas. Your studies will include:

  1. Up to eight core courses depending on your previous work and study experience—you'll learn about the theories, concepts, frameworks and strategies that underpin the management of public service ICT. You'll also find out how e-Government relates to good government and examine the risks and benefits of using ICT to enable public engagement.
  2. A research project–you'll research and report on a specific topic in e-Government or apply your knowledge to the design and management of a transformational e-Government project.
  3. Four other courses–choose from a wide variety of courses depending on your career goals, looking at issues in public policy, public management and information management in government and the private sector.

How you'll learn

Courses are delivered in a Block, Intensive or Weekly format. Whatever format your course is delivered, you need to attend all of the classes to pass and to get the most out of your study.

Block

Most MEGov courses are delivered on-campus in a block format, which means that you'll need to attend classes on three full days each semester. These classes are separated by about six weeks.

Weekly

Some of your core classes are delivered in a weekly format, with classes taking place in the evening during the standard university trimesters.

Intensive

Depending on the courses you take, you may have a class that's delivered in an intensive format. Intensive courses are structured as one-off blocks of four days, or two blocks of two days separated by six weeks.

Workload

If you are studying full-time you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester will need to do around 20–23 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours work.

Duration

The MEGov can be completed in two years part-time, or one year of full-time study.

Community

Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues.

You’ll get an orientation to introduce you to the people you’ll work with, a working space with desk, computer and storage, and use of a common room or kitchen when you want to take a break or mingle.

You'll also have opportunities to attend events, workshops, social functions and seminars such as the Student Learning Postgraduate Research skills sessions.

The Postgraduate Student's Association can give you information and provides a voice for you on campus.

Careers

You'll be well-placed to take part in the emerging area of e-government, leading and managing ICT projects at government departments or non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

And while you'll develop skills that will uniquely prepare you for e-government projects, you'll also have capabilities and knowledge you can use in private industry.

A rigorously demanding course, the MMus degree offers an opportunity to develop your musicianship and academic skills to a very high level in a range of subject areas. Read more
A rigorously demanding course, the MMus degree offers an opportunity to develop your musicianship and academic skills to a very high level in a range of subject areas.

The course allows students to study a broad range of topics and disciplines in music and musicology, including practical disciplines in Performance, Composition, and Conducting, and research in areas such as Music Psychology, Music Education, Music Arts and Health, Historical Musicology and Contemporary Musicology. Whether you are hoping to enhance your understanding of music for a future research or professional career, the modules offered in this course will equip you for further study and professional life.

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/master-of-music.aspx

Course detail

The programme offers you the opportunity to enhance your musical, compositional, performance, analytical, critical and research skills. In addition, you will apply these skills to your individual areas of interest in specific optional modules in written and practical disciplines. The choices of independent study modules mean that you will develop your performance, composition, conducting or research to MMus level whilst enhancing your knowledge of the wider field and contextualising your work within your chosen discipline.

The School of Music and Performing Arts is a community of more than 600 students from foundation to doctorate level, dedicated to creating and recreating music, dance and drama; all contributing to the musical and performing arts life of the University, the city of Canterbury and the wider community in the south east of England. This vibrant community offers exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration as well as more specialised subject­specific work. The degree is offered either as a one year full­time, or two year part­time course.

The taught sessions usually take place on one day of the week (usually Thursday), allowing you to continue with part-time work alongside your studies if you wish.

Suitability

The Master of Music programme aims to produce graduates who are accomplished and confident musicians and/or musicologists, who are able to work at a professional level within their specialist fields of study and who are prepared for further study at PhD level. The programme will develop your technical, conceptual and critical skills which will allow you to engage with music and musicology in a sophisticated and insightful way. The curriculum is designed to allow you to pursue specialist fields of study to an advanced level, including undertaking an extensive independent project or dissertation of your choosing, while developing a keen sense of context for those fields within the broader discipline of music.

Because the majority of teaching happens on just one day of the week (usually Thursday), the course is ideal for students who wish to continue working alongside their studies.

Content

Within the course, you'll take modules to a total of 180 credits.

You'll choose from one of the following individual study areas (60 credits each):
• Performance (solo instrumental or vocal performance)
• Conducting
• Composition/Creative Audio (e.g., acoustic composition, electroacoustic composition, popular song writing, sound art)
• Research Project in a chosen area of musicology (e.g., music psychology, music education, music and health, historical musicology, contemporary musicology)

You have four core modules to complete (4 x 20 credits):
• Research Methods
• Analysis
• Contextual Studies
• Criticism

And then you choose one each from the following pairs of optional modules (2 x 20 credits):
• Aesthetics OR Music Psychology and Health
• Performance Project OR Creative Project

Format

Your specialist field of study will be tackled primarily through independent learning, supported by either tutorials or instrumental or conducting lessons as appropriate. Students undertaking independent study in similar disciplines will meet for workshops and seminars during the year as they develop their work.

Supporting this, critical and contextual awareness will be explicitly developed through core modules, which are delivered through seminars that may be student-led. The option modules allow students to explore highly specific areas of music and musicology, through lecture- and seminar-based teaching, and to undertake projects within their own interests through seminars and workshop-based learning.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a wide range of assignments throughout the programme. These include musical performance, composition portfolios, written work, research posters, presentations and learning journals, and will be specific to the disciplines and modules that you choose to study.

The independent study modules will be assessed through a major project in each, with performance and conducting assessed through a recital, composition through a portfolio, and research project through a dissertation.

What can I do next?

Graduates of the MMus course typically go on to a range of careers which have included portfolio careers in music, performance and composition, working in a professional studio, music education and music research at PhD level.

The Bradford Distance Learning MBA allows you to study at a time, place and pace to suit you.

This programme is ideal if you need to combine work and family commitments with your business management studies, giving you the flexibility to complete your MBA in two to six years.

This flexibility means that you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the MBA at a pace to suit you, in anything from two to six years. If you are using the government’s Postgraduate Loan to fund your studies, you will need to complete the MBA in no more than two years (see the Fees and Financial Support section for more details).

You’ll join an international network of over 500 distance-learning students, which means you’ll never be studying alone. Students get all the benefits of being part of a leading business school with access to our unique online learning, careers and support services from around the world.

About our partner RDI

University of Bradford School of Management administers its distance learning MBA programmes alongside RDI. RDI is responsible for the initial stages of student application and admission onto the Bradford Distance Learning MBA programmes in specific territories.

Please note: In August 2015, RDI achieved university status resulting in a name change from Resource Development International Ltd to Arden University Ltd. However, the organisation is aware of the high esteem in which RDI is held by students worldwide and so the RDI name will continue as part of Arden University.

Professional Accreditation

The Financial Times has placed the University of Bradford School of Management's Distance Learning MBA in the world's top 10 in its Online MBA Ranking 2015.

We are in an elite group of less than 1% of business schools in the world to hold the triple accreditations of Equis, AMBA and AACSB.

Why Bradford?

The Bradford Distance Learning MBA is ranked by the Financial Times as one of the world's best online MBA programmes (World No.8) and rated No.1 in the world for alumni career progression.

The programme is aimed at intelligent, highly motivated managers who wish to equip themselves with the essential business and management skills required in the increasingly competitive, diverse and dynamic business environment.

As with all our MBAs, we offer students the flexibility to switch between modes of study. Distance learning students can choose to take certain modules alongside Full-time and Executive Part-time students in Bradford or at one of our partner institutions across our global campus. There is also flexibility in terms of how intensively you study. We advise that you study two modules every three months, tackling one unit per week – approximately 14-16 hours of study. However, if you are restricted on time, you can choose to just study one module at a time or even suspend your studies all together and restart at a later date.

While distance learning allows you to study at a time, place and pace to suit your needs we ensure that you will never feel like you are studying alone. Distance Learning MBA students have access to our Virtual Learning Environment and are provided with a variety of materials from textbooks and academic journal papers through to video clips and podcasts for each module. You are also expected to contribute to online discussion forums and tutorials with your tutor group and can network with staff and students our online social networking site - The Atrium.

Although studying largely independently, Distance Learning MBA students get all the benefits of being at a leading international business school and gaining a globally recognised qualification. You will also get access to all of our learning, careers and support services as well as our online library and academic expertise.

Rankings

Financial Times rankings for the School of Management:
-Our Distance Learning MBA ranked 11th in the world, 3rd in the UK in Online MBA rankings

Elective modules - Once you have gained the required managerial skills and knowledge from the core modules, you will then be required to complete four elective modules. There are normally 9-10 elective modules to choose from for those studying purely by distance learning.
-Business Simulation
-Circular Economy, Core Principles and Concepts
-Corporate Marketing
-E-business
-Entrepreneurship
-European Business Management
-Financial Risk Management in European Banking

Students who choose to take an elective module(s) in Bradford or at one of our partner institutions will have a wider range of choices, including modules such as Mergers and Acquisitions, Management Consulting and Global Supply Chain Management. Up to three modules may be taken in this way at no extra cost.

The management project is an integral part of the Bradford MBA and is often the most challenging and rewarding part of the programme. At the end of the taught programme you put into practice what you have learnt by investigating and reporting on an important management issue or opportunity. If you are sponsored by your employer, the project can relate to your workplace.

Otherwise, you may choose to use the project to deepen your knowledge of a different sector or organisation, or as a stepping stone to your next job. The project findings and recommendations are then written up in a 9,000-word dissertation.

Throughout the project you will be guided by an experienced academic and you will have access to the School of Management Effective Learning department. The Effective Learning service often proves to be very useful providing students with a clear understanding and guidelines on what is required in order to successfully complete their project.

Learning activities and assessment

Students are expected to take two subjects (modules) every three months.

Each module contains nine study units. Students typically progress by studying one unit from each module per week. This equates to approximately 14-16 hours of study per week. If you don't think that you have enough time to study two modules over the three month period you can always chose to study just one module, lightening your workload considerably.

If work or family life is particularly busy then you can even suspend your studies and restart at a later date. This flexibility means that students can complete a distance learning MBA in 2 to 6 years. We do however strongly advise that students study two modules every three months.

Study Abroad

You may decide you want to accelerate your studies, learn about a particular subject area, study alongside other University of Bradford School of Management students or simply broaden your horizons and spend some time studying overseas. You can do this by undertaking up to three block modules (i.e. 3-5 days of intensive study) at no extra cost (other than travel, accommodation and subsistence) at the School of Management or at any one of our partner institutions in Dubai and Singapore.

Career support and prospects

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

An MBA is an opportunity to either change career direction or consolidate experience then return and progress in a previous industry or job. The Financial Times Global MBA rankings show that, on average, 20% of alumni achieve board-level positions within three years of graduation.

On completion of the programme participants go into a wide variety of functions and sectors, including IT/Telecoms, Finance & Banking and Industry being amongst the most popular.

The e-business revolution would not exist without the never-ending research, development and application of innovative information and communication technologies. For example:
-Marketing managers would struggle to design promotional campaigns without business intelligence applications based on data warehouses and online analytical processing (OLAP) technologies
-Buyers would not be able to order the right products, from the right suppliers or during the correct time frames without integrated enterprise resource planning systems based on service-oriented architecture (SOA)
-The procurement process would not integrate supply chain partners in real-time and in an economic way without the extensible markup language (XML) protocol.

These examples show that visionary technologists must have solid strategic, entrepreneurial and organisational knowledge in order to make things happen.
