The PGCE is aligned with the Northern Ireland Curriculum, training graduates to teach across the 11-18 year age range. You will gain a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

The PGCE combines university-based tuition, consisting of taught sessions and directed independent study, with professional placements in schools. The programme of study is organised around three interdependent strands:
• Professional School-based Experience - focuses on developing practical teaching competence particularly through working closely with experienced teachers during periods of school placement.
• Subject Studies (eg English, Mathematics) - how to teach your subject.
• Educational Studies - common aspects of teaching and the professional role of the teacher, including pastoral care, promotion of inclusion, theories of learning, educational disadvantage, assessment and management.

Subjects

The PGCE trains students to teach the following school subjects up to Advanced-level GCE:
English
Mathematics
Information Technology/Computing
Modern Languages (applicants, including native speakers of languages other than English or Irish, should normally offer at least one of French, Irish or Spanish. German and Italian might also be considered as second languages offered. Native speakers will be assessed during interview in a curricular language other than their native language. Modern Languages students should state specific language(s) on the supplementary application form. Note that German alone is not considered).
Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
Sociology
Politics
Religious Education
IME (Irish Medium Education) - Extra places are reserved to prepare those who are interested in teaching a subject through the medium of Irish in Irish medium schools. These students do a number of elements, including a Gaeltacht residentual in the August preceding the course, which is delivered by St Mary's University College, Belfast. They receive an additional certificate in IME and applications are welcomed from students wishing to do such courses in one of the subjects listed above.

The PGCE combines university-based tuition, consisting of taught sessions and directed independent study, with
professional placements in schools. The programme of study is organised around three interdependent strands:
• Professional School-based Experience - focuses on developing practical teaching competence particularly
through working closely with experienced teachers during periods of school placement.
• Subject Studies (eg English, Mathematics) - how to teach your subject.
• Educational Studies - common aspects of teaching and the professional role of the teacher, including pastoral
care, promotion of inclusion, theories of learning, educational disadvantage, assessment and management.

Students are assessed on these three strands of practical, professional and acedemic competences. Coursework comprises subject studies assignments, practical teaching and core tasks arising from lectures, workshops and tutorials addressing key educational issues.

Students are also offered optional, non-assessed workshops on a variety of topics including special educational needs, classroom management, pastoral care, diversity and inclusion, children’s rights and digital storytelling.

Course Structure

After enrolment and registration in early September, you will complete a two week block experience in a primary school. The next block of the course is devoted to university-based tuition (an induction week, taught sessions and directed independent study). This is followed by your first 10 week period of professional placement based in a school (which we arrange).This block practice straddles the Christmas vacation, so you will only be free to take the same holiday as that of the school in which you are placed. At the beginning of February, you return to university-based tuition in preparation for your second 10 week professional period in a school different from that of your first placement. This second placement straddles the Easter period and again the vacation is determined by the school in which you are placed.A final week of university-based tuition completes the course at the beginning of June.

Successful completion of the PGCE depends on achieving satisfactory standards in both practical teaching and in course work. The extended placements are in two different schools, normally one spent in a school catering for 11 – 16 age range and the other in an 11 – 18 age range. This ensures a varied experience of teaching in different schools and working with pupils from the whole ability range. In the two post-primary schools
you will work closely with members of each school’s staff. Your subject methods lecturer from Queen’s will also maintain close co-operative links with these teachers during your school placements.

Join the UK’s first MA in writing professionally for three markets – film, TV and theatre. This programme has been designed with the writer in mind. Read more
Join the UK’s first MA in writing professionally for three markets – film, TV and theatre.

This programme has been designed with the writer in mind: you attend five four-day intensive workshops over the period of 21 months, and spend the rest of your time writing when you like, where you like, with constant script guidance by professional working writers throughout. The four-day workshops run from Thursday to Sunday, minimising your commitment if you work full-time.

‌•Become a member of a small and supportive group of ongoing active writers
‌•Watch your work being performed by actors
‌•Enjoy free London theatre visits
‌•Analyse and discuss nightly film screenings
‌•Produce high-standard scripts honed and ready for the professional market
‌•Direct peformances of your scripts in our own Marylebone Theatre
‌•I‌ndulge yourself in two years of pure writing as you develop a second career in film, TV or theatre
‌•Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa.

Why should I choose this programme?

Have you ever dreamt of writing the next major cinema release or a gripping new drama series for the BBC, Channel 4 or Netflix?

Can you imagine seeing your own play on stage in one of London’s 60+ theatres?

Or you create a work that starts small but grabs someone’s attention, and grows to become the next commercial screen or theatre attraction?

Perhaps your ambition is to adapt your favourite novel or short story for the screen or stage, and see it performed?

All these are possible. Many classic and famous stage and screen works were dreamt up and written by people with no prior experience of writing scripts, and even no ambition to do so, and many works started on a small stage or screen, and got spotted, picked up and became international hits.

This MA gives you all the tools and tuition you need to join those writers whose work we watch and hear daily on TV, in the cinema, on stage and on radio.

Our intensive programme of ongoing distance tuition combined with five four-day writing workshops on our beautiful Regent’s Park campus in central London, will do more than help you to achieve your Master’s degree: it will prepare you for professional commissions and script sales.

The script is the cornerstone of television and film production. No budget is raised, no actor commits, no director is hired, no studios or locations booked, no crews or stage staff employed without it. From idea to the point of the final script, all productions start from it.

Key skills, aims and objectives

You will develop transferable script writing skills which can be deployed in all areas of origination and creative analysis and which will enhance you employment prospects in a very wide and varied industry – not only as a writer but also as a script editor, reader, developer, producer, director, agent or distributor.

Future opportunities

This programme trains writers, script editors, developers, producers, directors, agents and distributors – because all require a first-hand understanding of the writer’s craft.

This course has been designed as the catalyst for a new career: our team of writers guide everything you do – the rest is up to you.

Course detail

- Description -

Semester One:

Debates and Controversies (30 credit points). This module examines some of the major debates in Historical studies today. The debates and controversies chosen are not exhaustive but are instead exemplars of why historians over disagree over sources, methods, politics, and other factors, and why historical works can be so different. At the same time the module will respond to a diversity of student interests by offering students an opportunity to develop their own reading and historical insights.

Themes in History (30 credit points). This module offers students the opportunity to explore themes in History that draw upon areas of particular staff specialism and that will develop and deepen their knowledge and understand. Divided into three themes of four weeks each, each block will examine key questions, sources and approaches within a theme. We will offer 4-5 themes each cycle to enable a degree of choice within the module’s teaching and learning programme.

Semester Two:

Research Methods for Historical Research (30 credit points). This module will provide students with the appropriate research skills necessary for study at postgraduate level, ranging from advanced usage of the library’s rich range of digitised primary sources to the exploitation of free sites and the development of a comprehensive and relevant bibliography for the dissertation. Sessions are designed to help students fit their emerging research question explicitly within the framework of available secondary and primary sources and to develop strategies for obtaining the most benefit possible from such resources. The module also allows students to practise and develop their oral presentation skills.

Special Topic in History (30 credit points). This module encourages focused study of one field of staff expertise. It is taught by individual consultation and a series of group sessions that encourage group support and shared reflection on the research process. Examined by an extended essay, the module will foster deep engagement with specifically related clusters of historical texts.

Semester Three:

Dissertation (60 credit points). This module is an independent piece of research on an aspect of historical studies that interests you. Students set the agenda and are guided by some general sessions at the beginning and by individual supervision sessions throughout the semester. The final dissertation is approximately 15,000 words in length.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Students are taught by lectures, seminars and individual tutorials.

The course is assessed by written essays, presentations and a long piece of extended writing (the dissertation).

Career options

Students graduating with the MA in History are well-prepared to undertake a variety of occupations. Some students will progress to doctoral research and academic careers. Others will become teachers or lecturers in further education. Not all MA graduates become teachers or university lecturers. Other options include work in libraries, archives, museums, or full-time work in research for charities, official organisations, government, etc. Others may go into marketing advertising, publishing, the civil service or politics. Our MA programmes have been known to help teachers advance their careers. Others pursue these degrees purely through interest and a love of the past. All graduate occupational outcomes are enhanced by a higher qualification such as this.
