The course is suitable for clergy and laity. There is an increasing diversity in Christian ministry and that provision is only likely to become more varied in the future. Teaching is ecumenical and would be appropriate for those ministers seeking to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of relevant theological areas.

Your programme of study



Human Rights and Criminal Justice are both relevant if you are working internationally or with people who are international especially but human rights law probably pertains to many disciplines within law in different guises in relation to the various rights which humans have rights to enjoy. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 as a response to some of the issues within the second world war. The UK Human Rights Act was passed a lot later in 1998 to provide equality, fairness, dignity and respect. There are civil rights and political rights and each country has a different interpretation of these rights. When combined with criminal justice the emphasis is on fair treatment in relation to human rights.

The degree gives you the greatest possible chance of a range of careers as it is split between Human Rights and Criminal Justice but within this you can study oil and minerals, humanitarian law, use of force criminal law which allows you the greatest choice of careers within law, civil service, diplomacy and negotiation, policing, human rights NGOs and advocacy groups and more. The programme has a strong emphasis on law, politics and Human Rights areas such as education, health, housing and family rights. You develop unique insights that align with employment options within this area of law.

This programme provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

The MSc Maintenance Management (Oil & Gas) is available to study full-time from September and January and part-time from September (part-time study designed for students already in full-time employment in a related area).

Programme Description

The oil and gas industries are widely affected by a growing range of factors, including shifting global economics, an evolving global energy mix and environmental issues.

There is an increasing demand for those working in the industries to develop an intelligent awareness of this complex business environment and to grasp the ways in which these changes will affect organisations.

Developed in conjunction with industry, the School of Engineering and Built Environment at GCU offers a suite of programmes designed to provide the knowledge required for a range of professional careers within the oil and gas industry.

This programme provides suitably qualified orexperienced engineers of all disciplines with moderncost effective maintenance management techniquesfor the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated,complex equipment.

Why Choose This Programme?

Today’s modern and efficient companies require top level maintenance strategies to match their investment. This impacts many industries particularly the advanced manufacturing technologies, transport industry, food production and the oil and gas industry. This has resulted in a considerable gap between current maintenance skill set and the required skills and expertise needed to maximise the potential benefits from the use of technologies.

Assessment Methods

The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the latter case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering. Recent graduates, from the MSc Maintenance Management programme, have gone on to work for various employers including: Royal Mail, British Petroleum, British Energy, Scottish Power, First Scotrail, Siemens plc, Sellafield, Babcock International Group, Ciba Speciality Chemicals, Allied Bakeries, Alcan and Albion Automotive amongst others.

You could study environmental law areas such as oil and gas law, energy and environmental law, low carbon energy transition with further environmental regulation. If you are more interested in criminal law you could look at Criminology, the politics of human rights, humanitarian law.  If you are more interested in business you might choose international law, intellectual property law, world trade organisation or for business with a creative aspect you might think about specialist in cultural property issues or law for business and arts and museums law.  There are many possible mixes of these general areas of law you might want to explore.
