Wedi’i ddysgu ar y cyd gan Ysgol y Gymraeg ac Ysgol y Saesneg, y cwrs MA Llenyddiaethau Cymru yw’r cwrs cyntaf yn unlle yn y byd sy’n canolbwyntio ar astudio a chymharu testunau o’r ddau brif draddodiad yng Nghymru (lle bo angen, mewn cyfieithiad i’r Saesneg). Read more
Wedi’i ddysgu ar y cyd gan Ysgol y Gymraeg ac Ysgol y Saesneg, y cwrs MA Llenyddiaethau Cymru yw’r cwrs cyntaf yn unlle yn y byd sy’n canolbwyntio ar astudio a chymharu testunau o’r ddau brif draddodiad yng Nghymru (lle bo angen, mewn cyfieithiad i’r Saesneg). Cymru yw’r unig un o genhedloedd Celtaidd gwledydd Prydain i fod ag iaith frodorol hyfyw a siaredir ar raddfa eang a llenyddiaeth gyfoes gyffrous. Ar ben hynny, hi yw’r unig genedl yng ngwledydd Prydain y mae ei llenyddiaeth Saesneg unigryw yn parhau ar yr ymylon o fewn ei chyfundrefn addysg ei hun. Ar lefel brifysgol, oherwydd rhaniad ieithyddol a fodolai yn yr 20fed ganrif, anogwyd astudiaeth ar y ddwy lenyddiaeth ar wahân – agendor nad yw ysgolheigion cyfoes ond megis dechrau ei phontio. Oherwydd ei chanolfan ddiwylliannol wirioneddol ddwyieithog, mae Bangor yn lle delfrydol i astudio’r ddau draddodiad llenyddol hyn, ac i ystyried y cwestiwn ynglÅ·n â beth sy’n digwydd i lenyddiaeth yn y Saesneg os nad hwn yw’r prif draddodiad.

Rhan Un:

Mae rhan gyntaf y cwrs yn cynnwys tri modiwl sy’n ceisio rhoi dealltwriaeth i fyfyrwyr o hanes llenyddol a diwylliannol modern Cymru, eu galluogi i ddatblygu eu dealltwriaeth o faterion allweddol ym maes ysgolheictod llenyddol modern Cymru ac ystyried themâu allweddol ar draws y ddau draddodiad llenyddol, o safbwynt traws-gymunedol.

Rhagarweiniad: "Pwy Sy’n Siarad dros Gymru?": Yn y modiwl rhagarweiniol hwn, gofynnir i fyfyrwyr ystyried sut y deallwyd ac y deellir materion yn ymwneud â hunaniaeth Gymreig o 1840 tan y presennol. Bydd myfyrwyr yn nodweddiadol yn astudio gwahaniaethau mewnol yng Nghymru, Prydeindod, cysyniadau o hunaniaeth Geltaidd, Cymru fel cenedl ôl-drefedigaethol, profiadau cyfochrog â chenhedloedd eraill Prydeinig sydd wedi’u "dominyddu", mudiadau cenedlaethol. Mae’n bosib yr astudir gweithiau gan yr awduron canlynol: Hywel Teifi Edwards, Saunders Lewis, Raymond Williams, Matthew Arnold, J.R. Jones, M. Wynn Thomas, Tony Conran, Dai Smith, Kirsti Bohata.
Moderniaeth Gymreig: Gofynnir i fyfyrwyr ystyried sut y bu i lenyddiaeth ar draws y ddau draddodiad ieithyddol gofnodi dyfodiad moderniaeth, a’r newidiadau a ddilynodd yn ei sgil. Gall themâu gynnwys diwydiant, dosbarth, trefoli, cyfalafiaeth, diwylliant gwledig, crefydd, newid ieithyddol ac alltudiaeth. Gall llenorion i’w hastudio gynnwys Caradoc Evans, Lynette Roberts, Caradog Pritchard, Dylan Thomas, Kate Roberts, R.S. Thomas, Arthur Machen, Emyr Humphreys, Idris Davies.
Rhywedd a Chymru: Bydd y myfyrwyr yn astudio’r berthynas rhwng rhywedd a’r genedl Gymreig, a sut mae rolau rhywedd wedi newid dros y ganrif ddiwethaf. Gall themâu gynnwys rhywioldeb, gwrywdod a diwydiant, cynrychiolaethau ar sail rhywedd o’r gofod a wladychwyd, y corff gwrywaidd, merched a chynrychiolaethau o dir. Gall llenorion i’w hastudio gynnwys: Elin ap Hywel, Jan Morris, John Sam Jones, Glyn Jones, Jane Aaron, Lewis Jones, Gwyneth Lewis, Rhys Davies, Amy Dillwyn, Menna Gallie.
Rhan Dau:

Paratoi traethawd hir 20,000 o eiriau, wedi’i ysgrifennu naill ai yn Saesneg neu yn Gymraeg, ar bwnc o’ch dewis chi yn ymwneud ag unrhyw agwedd ar y llenyddiaethau sydd o ddiddordeb i’r myfyriwr, wedi’i ymchwilio a’i ysgrifennu dan oruchwyliaeth unigol arbenigwr yn y maes.

Take your career to the next level

Looking for an internationally-recognised professional qualification that can help take you to the next stage of your career? Or perhaps you want to deepen your understanding of the latest issues and practices in English language teaching, to help you deliver the best possible education to students of English language around the world?

With our flexible course structure, the research excellence you’d expect from one of the world’s top universities, and a close, supportive community around you, the MA English Language Teaching (ELT) at the University of Warwick is the course for you.

Professional development, whatever your experience

The students who join our course each year come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Whether you have a wealth of teaching experience as a head of department or curriculum developer, or you’re yet to complete your first year of teaching, our course will offer you research-led teaching to further your professional development.

If you have less than two years’ experience teaching English to speakers of other languages, our ELT (Studies and Methods) course will introduce you to a variety of academic disciplines relating to teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL/ELT). And at the same time, you’ll gain a solid professional foundation for developing your practical teaching skills.

Or if you’re a more experienced teacher, our diverse range of course streams will develop your in-depth understanding of the links between theory and practice in English language teaching, while allowing you to specialise in areas such as ICT, Young Learners and Teacher Education.

Don’t just take it from us

Here’s what some of our former students have told us about their experience on the MA ELT at Warwick:

“Studying the MA ELT at Warwick has been quite an exciting experience. First, from among a wide range of courses, I think the program design allowed me to make a successful combination for my career. Besides my Testing and Assessment specialty, I chose a Teacher Development course for my elective, which will help me a lot because I will be involved in offering teacher training courses on testing when I go back to my country. Secondly, I really valued the team teaching professionally planned and led by a team of high-calibre professors. Last, but most interesting, is the qualitative research orientation I got here. Besides promoting my academic knowledge I feel that I have also developed my research skills. Now I’m confident I will be qualified for excellent career prospects.”

Yasir El Hag, MA English Language Teaching (Testing and Assessment programme)

“What I learned from the MA programme helps me a lot in various ways at work. I have become more proficient in terms of conducting research. I can use the knowledge I learned from the programme to help teachers adopt efficient teaching methods and questioning skills. Honestly speaking, without studying this programme, I wouldn't be this confident and comfortable at work.”

Kiki Sun, MA English Language Teaching (Studies and Methods programme)

Student Quote

‘After the internship that I completed through my European Master's in Translation with Language Technology [the original title of the extended MAPT] at a small translation company in Swansea, I took on a sales position with them. After three months as a sales executive, a project management role opened up in the company and I took it. As this role was in the certified translation department, I was able to build on the legal translation knowledge I had gained through my European Master's in TLT. My role involved completing some small translations in-house when time permitted and also reviewing the work of freelance translators and interns. I was also able to complete freelance translation work. After eighteen months, I moved to SDL to start an in-house translation role.

The MA programme in Professional Translation gave me a solid basis from which to develop my translation career. I still refer back to notes I made during my degree, particularly from the advanced translation and language technology module. Breaking into the translation industry can be difficult but I feel that I had an advantage over graduates from other universities in that I had completed the translation work experience module, extended translation projects and an internship as part of my European Master's in TLT. Having a focus on CAT tools was useful as I was able to practice applying the skills I had learnt in the language technology module in different translation situations. My knowledge of CAT tools was valuable to the operations management team during my project management role and it is now vital for me as a translator at SDL International. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to enter the translation industry."

*Welsh language course*

Mae’r cwrs Ysgifennu Creadigol wedi ei rannu’n Rhan 1 a Rhan 2 a rhaid pasio’r rhan gyntaf yn llwyddiannus er mwyn cael mynediad i’r ail ran. Mae Rhan 1 yn cynnwys 3 modiwl 40 credyd yr un sef ‘Themâu Creadigol’, ‘Technegau Cyfansoddi’ a ‘Mathau Llenyddol’. Mae Rhan 2 y cwrs yn cynnwys 1 modiwl 60 credyd sef portffolio o waith creadigol hyd at 20,000 o eiriau, a phennir canlyniad y cwrs cyfan ar farc cyfartalog dwy ran y cynllun. Mater i’w drafod rhwng y myfyriwr a’i gyfarwyddwr academaidd fydd union natur y portffolio, ac mae amryw fodelau’n bosib, e.e. nofel fer, casgliad o storïau byrion neu gerddi, cyfuniad o farddoniaeth a rhyddiaith. Rhoddir ystyriaeth ofalus i ofynion unigol pob myfyriwr wrth bennu union gynnwys y modiwlau, a chynllunnir rhan gyntaf y rhaglen gyda golwg ar y posibiliadau creadigol a all fwydo’r ail ran.

Y prif gyswllt dysgu yw hwnnw gyda’r cyfarwyddwr academaidd a threfnir i’w gyfarfod yn rheolaidd drwy gydol cofrestriad y myfyriwr. At hynny, mae cymuned ôl-radd fywiog o fewn Ysgol y Gymraeg a threfnir cyfres o seminarau wythnosol yn ystod Semester 1 a 2. Yn y seminarau hyn cynigir arweiniad i faterion technegol sy’n berthnasol i’r holl fyfyrwyr ôl-radd, bydd cyfle i glywed cyd-fyfyrwyr yn cyflwyno papurau am eu projectau unigol, a hefyd i ddysgu am ymchwil gyfredol gan staff Ysgol y Gymraeg ac ysgolion academaidd eraill. At hynny, cynhelir seminarau ysgrifennu creadigol rheolaidd a bydd cyfle i glywed awduron gwadd fel Wiliam Owen Roberts, Lloyd Jones, Angharad Tomos ac Ifor ap Glyn yn trafod eu gwaith. Yn ogystal, os yw myfyriwr ôl-radd am ddilyn yn anffurfiol unrhyw un o fodiwlau israddedig yr ysgol er mwyn cyfoethogi ei brofiad dysgu, bydd cyfle iddo wneud hynny.

Cysylltiadau Ymchwil / Cysylltiadau Diwydiannol
Ers rhai blynyddoedd, bu nifer o fyfyrwyr yn Ysgol y Gymraeg yn dilyn cyrsiau MA a noddwyd gan arian o ffynonellau Ewropeaidd, ac y mae hynny wedi arwain at nifer o gysylltiadau gwerthfawr gyda chwmnïau a sefydliadau fel Cwmni Da, Rondo Media, Gwasg Carreg Gwalch, Gwasg y Bwthyn, Canolfan Ysgrifennu Tŷ Newydd, a’r cylchgrawn Barn. Mae’r profiadau gwaith a gafwyd gyda’r cwmnïau a’r sefydliadau hyn wedi cryfhau cyflogadwyedd y myfyrwyr ôl-radd yn fawr.

Rhagolygon Gyrfaoedd
I amryw fyfyrwyr mae cwrs MA yn gyfle i ymestyn eu hastudiaethau israddedig drwy ganolbwyntio ar broject ôl-radd a chyn ymgymryd â chwrs hyfforddiant pellach, e.e. ymarfer dysgu. Yn ddiweddar, mae’r profiadau a’r sgiliau a enillir drwy gwrs MA wedi bod o gymorth i fyfyrwyr wrth sicrhau swyddi gyda chyfnodolion fel Golwg 360 a’r Cymro, gwasg fel Y Lolfa, rhaglen deledu fel Hacio, a Chanolfan Bedwyr ym Mhrifysgol Bangor.

Nid oes llawer o eiriau sydd mor atgofus a chyfareddol â ‘Cheltaidd’, yn dwyn i gof cywreinrwydd gemwaith yr Oes Efydd, adeiladwaith enfawr Côr y Cewri a Newgrange, chwedlau Arthur a Cú Chulainn a chrefft Farddol brenhinoedd a thywysogion y canol oesoedd. Read more
Nid oes llawer o eiriau sydd mor atgofus a chyfareddol â ‘Cheltaidd’, yn dwyn i gof cywreinrwydd gemwaith yr Oes Efydd, adeiladwaith enfawr Côr y Cewri a Newgrange, chwedlau Arthur a Cú Chulainn a chrefft Farddol brenhinoedd a thywysogion y canol oesoedd. Ond mae ‘Celtaidd’ hefyd yn gysylltiedig â’r Dadeni, yr Ymoleuo a’r Byd Newydd; Rhamantiaeth, Chwyldro a brwydr ieithoedd, llenyddiaeth a hunaniaethau cenedlaethol cyfan i oroesi yn y cyfnod Modern.

Mae’r cwrs course newydd hwn ym Mhrifysgol Bangor yn rhoi’r cyfle a’r gallu i fyfyrwyr fedru didoli’r ffeithiau a’r ffuglen, ac i ateb yn fanwl y cwestiwn:

‘Pwy oedd – a phwy yw – y Celtiaid?’

Yn ystod un flwyddyn academaidd bydd modiwlau yn cael eu dysgu gan arbenigwyr yn Ysgolion Cymraeg; Hanes, Hanes Cymru ac Archaeoleg; a Cherddoriaeth, yn canolbwyntio ar lenyddiaeth, archaeoleg, crefydd, mytholeg, hynafiaeth, hanes celf a cherddoriaeth, er mwyn archwilio diwylliant a hunaniaeth y bobl Geltaidd o’r bryngaerau cynhanes i seneddau datganoledig ac annibynnol heddiw.

Bydd myfyrwyr hefyd yn cael arweiniad wrth wneud eu hymchwil eu hunain ar gyfer traethawd hir gradd Meistr ar bwnc o’u dewis.

Mae’r holl gyfarwyddyd ar gael yn Gymraeg a Saesneg, ac mae cefnogaeth gynhwysfawr ESOL ar gael lle bo angen.

Dyma rai o’r prif bynciau sy’n cael eu trafod yn y cwrs course:

A yw’r ‘Celtiaid’ yn bodoli mewn gwirionedd, ac os felly, pwy a beth ydynt? Sut allwn ni drafod cwestiynau o’r fath, gyda pha fethodoleg a gyda pha dystiolaeth?
Sut mae’r gair ei hun (‘Celt’, ‘Keltoi’, ac yn y blaen) wedi cael ei ddefnyddio ar hyd y canrifoedd, o haneswyr Clasurol i gerddorion pop modern?
Beth yw cryfderau a gwendidau ‘Celtomania’ a ‘Celtosgeptigiaeth’? Sut mae’r cysyniad o’r ‘Celtiaid’ wedi ei ddarganfod a’i wrthod mewn gwahanol feysydd fel Llenyddiaeth, Archaeoleg, Ieithyddiaeth, Cerddoriaeth, Crefydd?
Sut y cyfrannodd ysgolheigion cyfandirol y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg at greu’r ‘Celtiaid’?
Sut y gwnaeth y bobl sy’n siarad ieithoedd Celtaidd ennill eu hunaniaeth eu hunain a sut maent yn dal i wneud hynny? Beth mae’r testunau canoloesol (Cyfreithiau, Chwedlau, Barddoniaeth Llys, Bywydau’r Seintiau) a chanfyddiadau archeolegol yn dweud wrthym, a beth sydd gan hanes diweddar i’w ddweud?
Beth yw’r prif ffynonellau tystiolaeth am hanes a hunaniaeth y bobl ‘Geltaidd’ (hynny yw, y rhai sy’n siarad ieithoedd Celtaidd yn y cyfnod modern)? Sut ydym ni’n defnyddio’r ffynonellau hyn? A all Arthur a Cú Chulainn ddweud rhywbeth buddiol wrthym?
Sut mae hunaniaethau ethnig a chenedlaethol y ‘Celtiaid’ modern wedi eu portreadu a’u trafod mewn perthynas â’r cysyniad hwn o’r ‘Celtaidd’?
Beth oedd perthnasedd gwleidyddol ac ideolegol y ‘Celtiaid’ a beth ydyw erbyn hyn?
Gyda materion fel hyn dan sylw, mae’r cwrs course wedi ei lunio i ddatblygu sgiliau’r myfyrwyr trwy gynllun astudiaeth uwch arbenigol. Un amcan pwysig yw rhoi hyfforddiant dadansoddol perthnasol i’r myfyrwyr, fel eu bod yn gyfarwydd â’r datblygiadau damcaniaethol ac ymarferol diweddaraf mewn perthynas ag Astudiaethau Celtaidd. Ar ôl cwblhau’r cwrs, bydd gan fyfyrwyr sail gadarn ym mhrif ddulliau a ffynonellau’r ddisgyblaeth, a byddant hefyd wedi datblygu sgiliau y gellir eu trosglwyddo’n eang ac a fydd yn berthnasol i amrywiaeth fawr o yrfaoedd.

Fframwaith y Cwrs
Mae’r course yn gwrs un flwyddyn (llawn amser) a gellir hefyd ei wneud yn rhan amser (gan amlaf hyd at dair blynedd). Ceir dwy ran i’r rhaglen gradd:

Rhan 1:

Mae hon yn elfen gwbl hyfforddedig, ac mae’n cyfrannu 120 credyd. Mae gan bob modiwl hyfforddedig bwysiad credyd o 40 credyd. Dysgir rhan 1 yn ystod dau semester y flwyddyn academaidd. Mae’r dysgu yn ystod semester 1 gan amlaf rhwng diwedd mis Medi a mis Rhagfyr. Mae’r dysgu yn ystod semester 2 gan amlaf rhwng diwedd mis Ionawr a dechrau mis Mai.

Bydd y modiwlau yn Rhan 1 yn cael eu hasesu trwy gyfrwng traethodau.

Rhan 2:

Mae rhan 2 yn cynnwys traethawd hir dan oruchwyliaeth o oddeutu 20,000 gair, ar bwnc o’ch dewis, a benderfynir ar ôl trafod gyda chynghorwr traethawd hir. Cwblheir yn ystod misoedd yr haf, rhwng diwedd mis Mai a mis Medi, a dylai myfyrwyr llawn amser gyflwyno eu traethodau hir erbyn mis Medi yn y flwyddyn galendr ar ôl cofrestru.

The MA programme has been designed to achieve a close connection between the learning environment and the workplace. Emphasis is placed on face to face delivery of the programme with student participation and experience being central to the facilitation of learning and teaching. The use of professional specialists to provide input where required is also a key feature of the learning approach.

The programme examines the practice of leadership and management informed by an analysis of wider management theory, in a changing organisational context.

You will attend our Bognor Regis campus for 1 day per month for 10 months in the first 2 years. The final year is more flexible and focuses on producing a dissertation topic supported by your tutors. We predominantly use small group learning and Action Learning Sets to deliver the content of the programme. Assessment is via assignment/presentations and report completion.

You will create a detailed, transformational Personal Development Plan in your first year alongside a study into ‘Managing a Department’. In the second year you will study Strategic Leadership and High Performance Team Management. In the final year you will attend research methods workshops, decide on a specific area to investigate and report on what is relevant to you, your career or your employer.

Contemplating taking on a masters-level programme whilst maintaining a demanding full-time position and a young family is a scary thought. This worry, however, was quickly removed when starting on the University of Chichester’s part-time MA in Leadership and Management. It would appear to me that this programme is specifically designed for people in my situation. The self-directed teaching style, complemented with monthly taught sessions, creates the excellent balance to fit post-graduate study into an already busy schedule.

The flexibility of course content and focus on work-based learning has allowed me to bring my studies into the workplace and has already helped to deepen my understanding of my role as a manager. Learning and sharing with others professionals seeking to also broaden their perception of management practice is a real asset and allows for further insight through supportive challenges and encouragement.

I would certainly recommend this course to others wishing to develop themselves as a leader, to bridge the gap between management theory and practice and to deepen their understanding of the role they play in their respective teams."

Vito Mastrolonardo, Head of Support & Customer Experience:

"There are a number of organisational developments where I work and with development comes change and opportunity. I want to put myself in the best place possible for the career developments that may arise.

Furthering my education in a practical and hands on way looked like the best option. And that is exactly what the MA Leadership and Management does.

I had a degree in Business Studies and the next logical progression route was a professional qualification or a masters level degree. However a Masters or MBA appear on the face of it very expensive and require a major time commitment. That is, until I found the University of Chichester MA in Leadership and Management. It is still a long term commitment, it still has a commitment to work hard and be very self-directed but, it is over three years. One day a month. And I can jump off at the end of each of those three years with a post graduate qualification.

What’s more, it was a ‘hands on’ course. All the assignments must be relevant and applicable to your job. This is even better. I need to manage a department, I have a team to lead, what better than to directly and immediately apply that knowledge.

I’m now 5 months in to the programme. 5 sessions that have included developing my knowledge in creating vision, objectives, strategy and change management. In additional to the directed learning, action learning sets that have been invaluable in helping me to understand myself and question what we have learnt in a facilitated, confidential group environment.

I am already applying my new found knowledge. I need to create a new strategy for my department and this has become the focus of one of my assignments. My personal journey has seen me read a number of contrasting articles on strategy and leadership, encouraging me to critically evaluate my thinking and the thinking of others. This has been especially useful when reading journals and books on leadership and applying this critical thinking to the workplace.

This is the course for me. This was the way for me to cement my knowledge in leadership and management and how to develop it further. It gives me the opportunity to advance my learning and knowledge in a practical and applied way to my work. It allows me the valuable opportunity to work on assignments during my working day as they directly relate to the work that I am currently doing. I am now on a respected, powerful journey to becoming a Master Leadership and Management enabling me to develop my career and satisfying my thirst for personal development."

What our students think

Matthew Evans MA Fine Art

Matthew Evans completed his MA Fine Art with distinction and has since received several commissions for his innovative new approach; creating bespoke modern-day coat of arms, including a £10k commission for the The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. He has also been selectedfor the New Art West Midlands 2013 Exhibition at Birmingham Art Gallery Museum which showcases the best of West Midland’s graduates.

"As a result of studying the MA course I have grown professionally as an artist. By adopting a ‘take a risk’ attitude I have been able to further refine my artistic practice and anchor it within the most critically interesting areas. By embracing the challenge of diversification, and enjoying the critical dialogue embedded within the course, I have resolved a number of sticking points, and identified areas for future development.

I chose to study my MA at the University of Wolverhampton as I felt I needed to breathe new life into my practise and relished the challenge of experiencing a new exciting creative environment. The artistic facilities on offer to students and the glowing reputations of the SAD staff and support technicians also played a key role in my decision.

What particularly impressed me about the course was not only the availability and approachability of the lecturers but the general sense of cohesion felt as a student. As well as extensive access to lecturers, and the intensively taught aspects of the course, there are many MA excursions that are incredibly beneficial.

As a positive side note, my affinity with the University has continued this September, with me becoming the Fine Art Artist in Residence for this year."

Other student comments:

“The MA has greatly expanded my knowledge of Fine Art.”

“I feel that I’m being supported in my work and that the best of my talent is being encouraged.”

“The lecturers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I’m grateful for both their input and the input of the other students”.

“I’m confident it’s setting me up with the right skills and knowledge to succeed in a career within the arts”.

“I’m glad that I made the decision to do the MA; it’s been a positive turning point in my life”.

Student profiles

“I chose to study MSc Geographic Information and Climate Change at Swansea as I had already enjoyed my undergraduate degree here. I really enjoyed that the course is quite full on, with a lot of independent work but a willingness from lecturers to help with any issues you have. Anyone considering this course I would advise to come to the university and speak with the lecturers about the potential interests they have. You get out what you put in. I want to go into a field that requires some expertise, although I feel as though I will need more experience once in or looking for a job, Swansea has provided the stepping stone for my future career. The lecturers helped me because they take a back seat, but I understand that they are there to support me when I need it. They have allowed me to be independent.”

Alice Nolan, MSc Geographic Information and Climate Change

After completing his MSc in Geographic Information and Climate Change, Thomas went on to earn a position at the Associated British Ports Marine Environmental Research. He said of his time at Swansea – “I chose MSc Geographic Information and Climate Change at Swansea University because of the funding Available (Access to Master's Scheme) and specific course content (Climate Change and GIS modules). I enjoyed studying topics in greater depth than at undergraduate level, and the opportunity to undertake my dissertation in partnership with an external organisation. The lecturers were highly approachable throughout the course, and were always available for advice outside of lectures and seminars. Studying at Master's level in Swansea provided the opportunity to build upon the knowledge and skills I acquired as an undergraduate. For example, completing my Master's dissertation in partnership with an external company enabled development of my communication and organisational skills, as well as my ability to synthesize research. These skills have been vital for development of my career in the marine consulting sector.”

Student Quote

"I studied the BA Ancient History and then the MA in Ancient History and Classical Culture. I chose Swansea University because of the variety of courses on offer in Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology. During my study I immersed myself in both academic and extra-curricular student life. I took up archery and I was a regular member of the University archery team. I enjoy both reading and writing fiction and in my final year of study, I was selected as one of four finalists in the “Swansea Life Young Writing Category” of the “Dylan Thomas Prize”. I held several positions of responsibility in the Society of Ancient Studies which was amazing; and I organised social events such as visits to sites such as Hadrian’s Wall, the British Museum, Caerleon, and Rome. I also had the opportunity to work on the Church Hill archaeological excavation (a suspected Roman villa) and the excavation at Oystermouth Castle organised jointly by the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust. I thoroughly enjoyed my four years at Swansea."

Recent years have been characterised by a rapid development of functional imaging technology, with increasing availability worldwide of high-resolution scanners for research and clinical applications. Functional brain imaging requires an understanding of current concepts in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, as well as a basic appreciation of neuroimaging techniques and of the mathematical and statistical foundations for data analysis.

The rapid development of functional imaging technology and research has contributed to the call for improved education and training in functional imaging. Within this context the aim of the programme is to provide a strong theoretical and practical introduction to the world of neuroimaging research. It will equip students with a range of practical research skills to enable them to successfully complete research of this kind, either as part of a research team or as an individual.

The course will also provide the necessary training in safety and in the rules of scanner operation. This will allow students to conduct a neuroimaging research project under the supervision of an Authorised User on Brunel’s 3T scanner, or else to conduct a project in one of its related ERP imaging or psychological laboratory facilities.

Who is this degree for?
If you want to know how to use an MRI scanner and learn what neuroimaging has already taught us, this MSc is for you. Whether you want to pursue neuroimaging research, or simply become an expert in this important field of science, the Functional Neuroimaging MSc provides the relevant skills and knowledge. The course is a good preparation for a PhD in functional brain imaging, or for working as part of a neuroimaging team with fMRI and/or other imaging modalities.

Course Content
Modules are subject to variation and students are advised to check with the School whether a particular module of interest will be running in their year of entry. At the time of printing modules (all core) are likely to be drawn from the following areas:
Principles of Neuroimaging; Practical Neuroimaging; Cognitive Neuroscience; Visual Neuroscience. Check the web for the latest updates.

Assessment
Assessment is by coursework, one multiple choice exam and a final research project. Under the supervision of one of the Centre for Cognition and Neuroimaging’s research team, students will conduct a functional imaging experiment. This may involve use of the in-house EEG or fMRI facilities.

Careers
The MSc in Functional Neuroimaging is an invaluable companion or prelude to a research degree or research position in functional neuroimaging, one of the most rapidly growing fields of scientific research. Academic or research positions include:
MPhil/PhD in neuroimaging or related subjects; Research Assistant on a neuroscience project, or a related project in psychology or biology. Imaging now has applications from the physical sciences to projects in economics and the social sciences; Technical Assistant in functional neuroimaging. Non-academic positions include: any occupation that requires a higher level of analytical, technical and presentation skills than can be offered by a graduate in social sciences.

Here is what a few of our past students have to say:
Anna: “After completing an MSc degree in Educational Psychology in Poland I moved to the UK where I worked clinically with people suffering from epilepsy. During that placement, inspired by the state-of-the-art research conducted there, I developed a strong interest in neuropsychology. As a result I took up an MSc in Functional Neuroimaging at Brunel. The course appealed to me not only because it was an excellent introduction to this method, but also because it provided invaluable hands-on experience. The course was delivered by very competent and knowledgeable staff, who were enthusiastic about their subject. Their approachability and enthusiasm helped in managing course workload, as well as in developing my passion for research. Functional neuroimaging, being primarily used as a research tool in cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and social neuroscience, was taught in a very uncomplicated yet comprehensive manner. The course opened up research opportunities at many well-established research centres in the country and proved to be a key skill when applying for jobs after graduation. I now work partly at the University of Cambridge, and partly at the neuropsychological centre providing rehabilitation for people who have sustained brain injury. This is a fabulous chance to combine research and clinical experience, and knowledge and skills gained during the MSc prove extremely helpful in my work. I will always be very grateful to all Brunel’s staff for the support and help that they provided, even after graduation!”

Priya used her MSc as a transition to research work : “My year in Brunel’s MSc program in Functional Neuroimaging provided a crucial bridge for me between my undergraduate and doctoral studies. As an undergraduate I studied Cognitive Science and was interested in neuroimaging, but had few opportunities to work with a scanner. One of the aspects that drew me to the program at Brunel was the chance to design and carry out my own fMRI study; in addition to submitting the results as part of my degree requirements, I was able to present them as a poster at a scientific conference. The substantive coursework was also helpful for me in transitioning from undergraduate to postgraduate studies in neuroscience. Going into my MSc year at Brunel, I was not sure whether I was ready for or interested in a career in neuroscience research. Today I enjoy my doctoral studies and do research in an fMRI laboratory.”
