About the course

  • Explore the most advanced studio techniques, technologies and processes at the forefront of current music production.
  • Discover advanced compositional devices and strategy applicable to DAW-based realisation of original material.
  • Unleash your creative potential and cultivate your own individual style to produce original works that stand out from the crowd in their artistic and technical sophistication.
  • Survey the most exciting aesthetic trends in current music-making with technology, and their relation to the demands of the music industry.

Why choose this course?

The MA Creative Music Production is aimed at applicants specifically interested in applying studio technologies and production skills to the creation of their own original music (as opposed to “producing” other artists’ music). In addition to equipping students with solid bases in studio technology, processes and practices, the course addresses the purely formal, artistic and aesthetic aspects of music-making, and the specific compositional devices and strategy applicable to DAW-based realisations of original material.

By surveying the defining traits and aesthetic concerns of a number of popular genres centred on electronic composition-production, students develop a sophisticated awareness of current artistic and aesthetic trends, and an enhanced knowledge of the musicology of production. On this course, you will develop a portfolio of original works showcasing your talent as a composer-producer, opening up a wide range of possibilities for your professional career.

Students undertaking Masters by Research at the Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance will gain specialist knowledge and relevant skills for research on various aspects of the practice of diplomacy and international governance.

From September 2017, Loughborough University London will be delivering six new multidisciplinary MRes programmes, to enable students with a passion for research to widen their skills, focus their interests and take the next step towards an MPhil, PhD or analytical career.

Studying an MRes with Loughborough University London will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. Each MRes programme has been carefully designed to empower graduates with rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto highlevel researcher positions within their chosen sector or field.

Each programme will explore the research processes, and uncover the designs, practices and methodologies used by experienced researchers from each discipline. Whilst a traditional taught master’s degree programme focuses on the development of expertise in a chosen area, an MRes places more emphasis on the individual to uncover new knowledge and develop their own research expertise.
In addition to a major research project all students studying an MRes programme will complete taught units such as:
-The Collaborative Research Project
-Research Design, Practice and Ethics
-Quantitative Research Methods
-Foundations in Qualitative Research

See the website http://www.lborolondon.ac.uk/study/institutes-programmes/mres-in-diplomacy-and-international-relations/

Career Prospects

Research skills are greatly in demand across the high value industries of the UK. Alongside the taught elements of the programme you will be able to access a tailor-made professional development programme mapped to the Researcher Framework that will support you to market yourself and your skills for a rewarding career. You will get access to:
-Exclusive workshops on diverse topics suitable for a research career.
-Mentoring.
-Employability Profiling and Careers Support.

This course will prepare you to become a teacher of business education across the 14 -19 age range. It combines master's level academic study of business education with a range of school and college experiences. Completion of the 10 month course leads to both a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

More than two-thirds of your time will be spent in our partnership schools and colleges, where you will develop practical teaching skills with the support of trained mentors and established teachers. You will have the opportunity to visit a range of educational establishments, in particular outstanding local sixth form colleges, to hone your skills and understanding of specific teaching theory and practice.

Collaborative learning and formative teaching will allow you to develop the knowledge and capabilities of students in your own classrooms in all aspects of business education, including business studies, economics, and accounting and key vocational business qualifications. You will be taught by a teaching team with a nationally recognised reputation for research, teaching and publications in business education.

For more details on interviews, please visit our PGCE website .

Aims

The University-based components of the course will enable you to reflect on teaching, learning and pedagogy, and encourages you to observe how children learn. Sessions will include:

  • business studies and economics subject knowledge and pedagogy;
  • current debates in business education;
  • planning lessons;
  • assessment for learning; differentiation;
  • managing pupil behaviour; and
  • keeping records and using data and ICT to support pupils' progress.

In addition, you will be able to observe and discuss a number of `best lessons' which are planned and delivered by experienced practitioners. You will be encouraged to make the transition from subject specialist to outstanding teacher.

Special features

  • Top university to study a PGCE in the North of England (Good Teacher Training Guide 2017).
  • Rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
  • Extensive classroom experience supported by experienced economics tutors and mentors.
  • 92% of our graduates in a teaching post within six months of completing the course - consistently better than the North West average (The University of Manchester 2013-2016).

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 course is a partnership between the University and its partner schools and colleges which are drawn from a wide area, including Bolton, Bury, Cheshire, Deeside, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Staffordshire, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Warrington and Wigan. Each placement school or college has a designated business education mentor who has been trained by the University.

The usual placement pattern is a main school experience, followed by a contrasting placement, before returning to the main school/college in the final weeks of the course. As a trainee in a placement school or college you will observe and teach classes under the guidance of experienced subject mentors.

You will be given a significant amount of responsibility to develop your own teaching style, to set personal targets, to demonstrate initiative and to evaluate your work in planning, teaching and assessing. You will participate actively in your own professional development as a teacher through seminars, lectures, group discussion, practical workshops, reflection, trainee-led sessions, peer review and tutorials.

Coursework and assessment

School and University-based experiences are formally assessed and your school/college mentors and University tutors will help you to record your achievements and to set targets.

During each placement, a University tutor will observe your teaching and at the end of each placement you will receive a report from your mentor. The report will grade you in the following areas: teaching; planning, differentiation and assessment; learning environment; and wider professional responsibilities. The grades are awarded by your mentor in conjunction your University tutor. These reports, together with your record of achievement and development, facilitate your progression as a trainee teacher.

You are also required to complete a number of written assignments which allow you to gain 60 master's level credits. Modules include: Teaching, Learning and Assessment, a School/College-based Enquiry (with supporting literature review), and a Reflection of Professional Practice. On-going guidance and support to complete these assignments will be available from your University tutors.

Additional fee information

The following course content is subject to validation Do you want to become a primary or secondary school teacher and help children and young adults make the best possible start in life? Do you prefer a work based route? This initial teacher training course covers the knowledge and skills that are required for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with training led by your host school supported by the University of Sunderland.

Course overview

PGCE School Direct is a unique school led route that provides exciting opportunities for you to train though work based learning, as a teacher, in a school. There are two routes available within School Direct:
Salaried Route
The salaried route is available to those candidates who have three or more years experience in schools and settings. Trainees apply direct to the school for a salaried position and are trained by the school in partnership with the University. You may also be eligible for a salaried route if you are a ‘career changer’ with transferrable skills.

Tuition Fee Route
This route is designed for trainees who prefer an apprenticeship approach to training. Trainees apply direct to the school via UCAS Sunderland codes and are trained by the school in partnership with the University.

How to Apply
In order to apply you should choose the school, or group of schools, in which you train and apply to them against the relevant University of Sunderland code. School Direct is run as a partnership between a Lead School, other schools in their Alliance and the University of Sunderland as the accredited teacher training provider.

Course content

Your training will blend academic study provided by the University of Sunderland with hands-on placements organised by the school that employs you.

PGCE Secondary Course content:
-School placement (with some experience in another secondary setting);
-Master's Module 1: Development of Learning: A Case Study – you will identify an educational intervention and explore its use, impact and influence upon the learning of one or more pupils;
-Subject Studies module (developed in school placement);
-Master's Module 2: Negotiated Individual Study in Education – you will undertake a piece of action research into an educational issue.

PGCE Primary 3-11 Course content:
-School placements in 3-7 or 7-11 Key Stages
-Master's Module 1: Development of Learning: A Case Study – you will identify an educational intervention and explore its use, impact and influence upon the learning of one or more pupils;
-Subject Studies module (developed in school placement);
-Master's Module 2: Negotiated Individual Study in Education – you will undertake a piece of action research into an educational issue.

Teaching and assessment

School Direct Trainees will receive academic input during University return days timetabled throughout the year.

All University Modules are designed to support Trainees in developing their knowledge and confidence in teaching. University input is delivered by both expert Tutors and excellent Practitioners from Partnership Schools, in a wide variety of ways including, lectures, tutorials and practical workshops as well as online discussions.

All aspects of the Programme are designed to enable you to meet and demonstrate the National College for Teaching (NCTL) and Leadership Standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Students will compile evidence against the Standards throughout the Programme in their online e-Portfolio.

The PGCE Primary School Direct Tutor Team is committed to providing the best experiences for our Trainees. Our Personal Tutor system ensures all Trainees are allocated an individual Tutor and are nurtured and developed both academically and professionally throughout the Programme.

Assessment is continuous throughout the course. Subject knowledge is monitored through the use of subject audits which enable students to identify their strengths and areas of development and to then action plan with Subject Specialist Tutors support to increase their knowledge and confidence in identified areas.

Modules are assessed through a variety of assessment methods including, Assignments, Portfolio and Practice Based Tasks.

Assessed Placements are assessed by Partnership schools/settings in liaison with the University.

Facilities & location

Your training will be based in the school that employs you. Academic studies will be delivered by the University of Sunderland.

Course location
Your studies at the University of Sunderland will be based at the Forster Building on City Campus and at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s. Sunderland is a very vibrant and supportive environment with excellent resources for teaching and learning.

We also subscribe to a comprehensive range of print and electronic journals. Resources include the EBSCO Professional Development Collection, which is a specialised collection of over 500 education journals.

Employment & careers

By joining this programme you will also be taking a big step towards sorting your first post-qualification teaching job. That’s because the school will select you and customise your training to suit their needs as well as yours. One of the goals of the programme is for schools to be able to grow their own teachers and future leaders – so there is every reason for the school to continue to employ you after the award of QTS.

With QTS you will be qualified to teach in any state-maintained school in England and Wales. This gives you flexibility in case your plans change or you decide to work elsewhere.

The starting salary of a newly qualified teacher is over £21,000, with extra if you work in London. Teachers see their salaries rise by an average of 30 per cent after their first four years in the job.

In the past twenty years, the Web has transformed society and changed the way we work, trade, learn, do science, organise our lives, and play. The Web is, on the one hand, a network of interlinked computers, protocols, and software and, on the other hand, a socio-cultural phenomenon that influences law, the media, business, science, etc. To shape and work with the current and future forms of the Web, we need to understand its underlying design principles and concepts, relevant issues and techniques, and how these interact and influence each other. The fast changing nature of the Web means that such a deep understanding is essential to understand the latest developments and their potential.

The Advanced Web Technologies pathway is centred around a core theme of the same name, Advanced Web Technologies, and combines it with a choice of closely related yet complimentary themes, including Software Engineering 1 & 2, Making Sense of Complex Data, and Learning from Data. Students following this theme will gain an understanding and insight into the technologies that deliver the Web as we see it today. The topics covered include underlying languages and standards used to represent information on the web; techniques for understanding and managing data and information in a web context; and techniques and technology used to design and deliver web infrastructure.

Teaching and learning

Computational thinking is becoming increasingly pervasive and is informing our understanding of phenomena across a range of areas; from engineering and physical sciences, to business and society. This is reflected in the way the Manchester course is taught, with students able to choose from an extremely broad range of units that not only cover core computer science topics, but that draw on our interdisciplinary research strengths in areas such as Medical and Health Sciences, Life Sciences and Humanities.

Coursework and assessment

Lectures and seminars are supported by practical exercises that impart skills as well as knowledge. These skills are augmented through an MSc project that enables students to put into practice the techniques they have been taught throughout the course.

Disability support

Career opportunities

Students following the Advanced Web Technologies pathway have all the career choices and options as described for general Advanced Computer Science.

In addition, students of this pathway are ideally placed to work in positions requiring an understanding of modern Wed infrastructure, ranging from the obvious Web developers and system providers to basically all companies employing or developing Web technologies.

We maintain close relationships with potential employers and run various activities throughout the year, including career fairs, guest lectures, and projects run jointly with partners from industry. This is managed by our Employability Tutor; see the School of Computer Science's employability pages for more information.
