About the MPA

The two-year Master of Public Administration (MPA) programme is ideal for current and future government advisers, policy-makers and policy analysts from around the world. Our training is both wide-ranging and in-depth and includes, among other areas, economics and econometrics, political science, international development and welfare policy. Around 80 per cent of our students come from overseas, creating a truly international network of peers that endures long after graduation.

You will choose a policy stream from a range of five in the second year, allowing you to specialise in a particular area according to your interests and career plans.

Policy streams:
◾ Public and Economic Policy
◾ Public Policy and Management
◾ International Development
◾ European Public and Economic Policy
◾ Public and Social Policy

In the second year of the programme, you will undertake a capstone project where you work in a group of three to five to research, analyse and make recommendations to resolve a genuine policy problem for a real-life client organisation.

You will also benefit from a range of Skills Development Seminars which will complement the formal teaching and learning of the programme. In addition, regular Policy in Practice Seminars bring distinguished professionals to LSE to share their experiences and to help you connect your classroom learning to the real world.

The MPA produces graduates who make far-reaching and significant contributions in the policy arena in the public and private sectors, and in non-governmental organisations including careers in impact investing, policy monitoring and evaluation, policy design, social impact investing, political transparency, financial regulation and economic analysis.

MPA Dual Degree

Train to teach Modern Languages to 11 to 16-year-olds with London Metropolitan University and begin your fulfilling career in secondary schools. You’ll learn the principles of effective Modern Languages teaching and how to develop school childrens’ love of the foreign word. Your placements at our partnership schools will back up what you have learnt with hands-on practical experience. Attendees of our National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) accredited PGCE Secondary courses attain high results, with 95% achieving an Ofsted good or outstanding grade by the end of the course and 96% going on to obtain employment, often with their placement schools.

More about this course

This NCTL accredited PGCE Secondary Modern Languages course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and prepares you to teach 11 to 16-year-olds (Key Stages 3 and 4) in a secondary school environment. It also gives you the opportunity to teach the 16-18 age range.

The modern languages included are French, Spanish and German, and you will be developing pupils’ skills in speaking, reading, listening and writing the language they choose to learn.

If you only speak German or Spanish, we offer a 12-week Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) in French, enabling you to teach French up to Key Stage 3. The SKE is fully funded and bursaries are available to eligible applicants.

At the University, you’ll study teaching methodology, pupil assessment and how children learn. There will also be collaborative and school-based projects with other trainees.

Based in London, this PGCE course will broaden your understanding of teaching in multicultural urban environments. Through your two school placements, you’ll learn how to help 11-16-year-olds develop their foreign languages effectively and fluently.

This commitment to high standards has led to positive reviews from Ofsted:

"Headteachers are particularly complimentary about the fact that the trainees and Newly Qualified Teachers are well prepared to meet the specific challenges of teaching pupils in the London environment."
Ofsted 2015

Your assessment will consist of four elements:
-School placement A

-The Educational Research Assignment which allows you to explore an educational issue

There are no examinations.

You'll share feedback with your peers and colleagues on the placement, completing weekly reflections and contributing to online discussions in order to further develop your understanding of the secondary teacher role.

What our students say

"I personally believe that London Met is an excellent PGCE course provider and the Modern Languages course prepares students very well for a teaching career in this subject. What I appreciated the most was the tutors and the relationships they were able to build with the students. The PGCE year can be a stressful one and it is very important for student teachers to feel supported. The tutors at London Met do this. They teach that in order to be a good teacher you have to encourage pupils and they do it with their student teachers as well. Excellent!" Former PGCE Secondary Modern Languages trainee

After the course

This intensive PGCE leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which enables you to teach Modern Languages to 11 to 16-year-olds. Our trainees have gone on to secure secondary teacher roles at schools including Ark Academy, Ralph Allen School, Bushey Academy and more.

Funding

Funding is available for many postgraduate courses leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Depending on your teachng subject and degree classification, you may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship of up to £30,000 through the teacher training bursary.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

In an increasingly competitive profession we distinguish ourselves as an academic forum engaged responsibly and directly with the world around us.

The main areas of study are in design, technology and practice, and history and theory. Each area is taught through a wide choice of tutors, studios and interest groups with a strong emphasis on self-directed study and ambitious agendas. You are encouraged to explore particular lines of interest and develop ideas in depth.

The course as a whole encourages fresh thinking, experiment and risk. You will also be encouraged to understand and engage with the society you are part of and serve; and to engage with social, political and economic infrastructures that predetermine built form. Our students have had considerable successes in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) President's medals, winning the RIBA Silver Medal in 2012, 2003 and 2002, and the Bronze in 2004.

More about this course

The course is designed to ensure high standards in the professional practice of architecture and to give you the opportunity to extend your area of competence. It focuses on the design process but tempers this concern with the knowledge and experience needed for ideas to become reality in a way that is ethical, economical, efficient and legal.

Students are recruited from a wide range of design professions in the construction industry, and the teaching will examine critical events in your own work experience, that of other course members and of the profession at large. The course will also encourage you to feel confident with higher levels of professional responsibility. Our students have had considerable successes in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) President's medals.

You'll benefit from the course's central London location and its close proximity to its internationally renowned creative and industry hubs. The School's extensive networks encourage graduates of the course to expand their knowledge and skills through lectures, events and careers advice, leaving them with excellent career prospects.

The course is assessed in four ways. There are three elements of coursework and documentation related to practical experience and its assimilation, in the form of a case study, a completed RIBA Practical Training Record or its equivalent and a critical self-evaluation. The fourth part of the assessment consists of two unseen examinations. A final viva voce examination assesses all four elements in a summative context.
