Art Law is an exciting and fast-developing area of commercial, legal and academic research significance and the LLM in Art Law will provide you with opportunities to develop valuable skills used by those working in the art world, whether in such diverse areas as: Private Client legal practice, fine art insurance, the not-for-profit sector, galleries, museums or cultural heritage.
The LLM in Art Law is a unique collaborative and cross-disciplinary programme which will provide you with a deep understanding of the complex legal, artistic, social and ethical problems raised by the global trade in art, which was estimated at over $45 billion in 2017 (TEFAF Art Market Report 2017). Art law is broadly conceived and the main focus of the programme will be on the legal treatment of fine art and cultural heritage, although there will be opportunities to consider some of the problems surrounding definitions of ‘art’ which may be culturally, socially and historically contingent.
Exceptionally, the LLM in Art Law at the University of York is co-taught by academic specialists from both the research-active Department of History of Art and York Law School, thus providing you with a unique integrated and cross-disciplinary learning environment in which to explore legal, practical, commercial, ethical and financial issues arising in the art world, as well as their wider context and implications.
The LLM in Art Law uses a variety of postgraduate teaching methods including ‘Problem Based Learning’ (‘PBL’) which will provide you with opportunities to work collaboratively in a student ‘law firm’, and individually, on a variety of real-life simulations. These simulations provide you with exposure to the multi-faceted nature of art law disputes and will encourage you to develop and apply a broad range of legal skills including: research; document and case analysis; problem solving; negotiation and mediation; and advocacy. Additionally, you will have opportunities to develop your presentation and oral skills in debates and reading group sessions. You will undertake a specific History of Art module (chosen from a range of options) to gain subject-specific knowledge and exposure to this discipline, as well as inter-disciplinary insights. Your dissertation, on an art law topic of your choice and written under the supervision of a member of staff, completes the programme. There will be opportunities to enhance your know-how and networks by taking part in masterclass sessions led by guest speakers, and undertaking the course field trip.
The programme reflects the unique inter-disciplinary nature of the LLM in Art Law by ensuring that all students, whether or not you have an existing legal or art historical background, gain a fully-integrated appreciation of the complexities of art law.
The LLM in Art Law is a taught programme of one year. It runs from October to the following September. On the LLM you will study 180 credits. 100 credits are studied through a mix of compulsory and optional taught modules, with the remaining 80 credits being obtained by completing a 15,000 word dissertation on an art law topic of your choice. All students are required to take part in the programme Fieldtrip, which is an important element of the degree programme and which will develop your appreciation of the realities of working in this field.
The LLM modules are taught using a variety of different methods. Some modules will be taught as weekly lectures and seminars, others will involve ‘Problem Based Learning’ (‘PBL’). PBL sessions provide you with opportunities to work collaboratively in a student ‘law firm’, and individually, on a variety of real-life simulations. These simulations provide you with exposure to the multi-faceted nature of art law disputes and will encourage you to develop and apply a broad range of legal skills including: research; document and case analysis; problem solving; negotiation and mediation; and advocacy. Additionally, you will have opportunities to develop your presentation and oral skills in debates and reading group sessions, as well as written skills.

In our overscheduled society is there still enough time for childrearing? How do families and childrearing change through the use of social media? How can we tackle polarization in multi-ethnic classrooms? What leads to game addiction and inactivity in our society? How do we make our schools inclusive? What do children need to find their own solutions to bullying at school? How do parenting support programs developed in Western countries fit into non-Western communities? How should the new frameworks for youth care in the Netherlands be structured? What can we learn from foreign approaches to education and youth services?
Do you want to make a contribution to these contemporary social challenges involving the relationship between children and youth and their guardians/educators? Do you want to help draft new policies that can improve the position, welfare and development of children, youth and their parents? Are you interested in making international comparisons? Youth, Education and Society (Dutch: Maatschappelijke opvoedingsvraagstukken) is the only Master’s programme in the Netherlands that specifically focuses on innovating pedagogical policy and practice, both nationally and internationally.
This one-year, intensive programme will teach you about:
We will also be looking beyond our borders. After all, global developments (such as globalisation, poverty and migration) have had a major impact on the quality of life for children and youth. And we will also be analysing pedagogical services through an international lens:
This programme also devotes attention to international humanitarian cooperation.
This Master’s programme will be led by the professors of Pedagogy, Dr Mariëtte de Haan, Dr Micha de Winter and Dr Paul Leseman. Together with a team of lecturers representing a variety of expertise in the area of pedagogy, they will teach classes and guide students during their internship and research. Contacts with the field constitute an important seedbed for the programme.
See, for example, a report on the current affairs programme Eenvandaag on Wednesday, 21 January 2015 about young Dutch jihadists in which Micha de Winter (pedagogy professor) is asked why we cannot seem to get a handle on these youth in the Netherlands.
This Master’s programme has similarities with the Youth Studies Master’s programme (Dutch: Jeugstudies), but mainly considers children and youth from a childrearing and educational perspective, for example at home, at school or via the media. This Master’s is also distinguished from the Master’s in Youth Studies by its so-called community approach. Alongside attention to the role of professionals, this programme focuses on the role of civil society. Critical analysis of the societal debate also typifies this Master’s programme. You will graduate as an educationalist, while those completing the Youth Studies programme will graduate within Interdisciplinary Social Sciences.
This programme somewhat overlaps the Master’s programme in Clinical Child, Family and Education Studies (Dutch:Orthopedagogiek) but is distinguished by a broader, more socially-oriented interdisciplinary view on pedagogy. You will graduate as an educationalist and acquire the NVO registration as a general educationalist. Unlike the programme in Clinical Child, Family and Education Studies, you will not focus on clinical issues, diagnostics or deviant behaviour from a need-based perspective but on pedagogy as a broader field oriented to society. This Master’s is also distinguished from the Master’s in Clinical Child, Family and Education Studies due to its so-called community approach. Alongside a focus on the role of professionals and policy, the programme centres on the role of society in childrearing and education. Critical analysis of the societal debate also typifies this Master’s programme.
This Master’s will enable you to develop yourself into an academic professional. You will learn to analyse, evaluate and solve practical problems in a theoretical and empirical way.
Material culture - the study of archaeological material remains - is at the very heart of archaeology. Studying objects gives you a route into any field you choose, and the combination of theory, analysis and experimentation makes this course unique. Experimental archaeology gives us new insights into the processes involved in the production, use, discard and deterioration of material culture.
This course interweaves practical and theoretical approaches to material culture. You'll explore the theory underpinning our understanding of the material world through ethnoarchaeological studies while developing invaluable practical skills: from analysis of use-wear and residue traces, building reference collections, to making short documentaries for the heritage sector.
This course is also available as an MA.
The University of Birmingham is a Department for Education and National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) approved provider for the National Award for SEN Co-ordination.
It has been running accredited (Masters level) professional development programmes for special educational needs co-ordinators (SENCos) for over 15 years. Over a thousand SENCos have successfully completed their training over this period and given excellent course feedback!
The University runs partnership versions of the National Award for SEN Co-ordination course with the following Local Authority partners: Birmingham; Dudley, Sandwell & Wolverhampton (combined cohort); Staffordshire (Entrust).
Within these Local Authority areas teachers wishing to apply for a place on the course work in a range of maintained mainstream schools, maintained nursery schools, academy and free schools, and pupil referral units (PRUs).
SENCos working in other neighbouring Local Authority areas may also be able to join one of the partnership courses (in 2014-2015 for example, SENCos from Derbyshire, Herefordshire, Solihull, Telford and Wrekin and Warwickshire were participating in versions of the course).
This Masters level course (60 credits) has been updated to reflect changes to the NCTL learning outcomes framework. It is also closely aligned to the changes taking place to special educational needs and disability policy, provision and practice in England including the changes to SEN Code of Practice (2015).
We are currently recruiting to this programme. The programme is inviting applications for the following cohorts.
The National Award is a mandatory qualification, 60 Credit Masters level course which all SENCos who are new in role must undertake. The course meets the requirements of the SEN Code of Practice (2015 Section 6.86).
The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations (2014) states:
(1) The appropriate authority of a relevant school must ensure that the SENCO appointed under section 67(2) of the Act meets all of the requirements in either paragraph (2) or (3).
(2) The requirements in this paragraph are that the SENCO:
(3) The requirement in this paragraph is that the SENCO is the head teacher or acting head teacher (or equivalent in the case of an Academy school) of the school.
(4) Where a person becomes the SENCO at a relevant school after 1st September 2009, and has not previously been the SENCO at that or any other relevant school for a total period of more than twelve months, the appropriate authority of the school must ensure that, if the person is the SENCO at the school at any time after the third anniversary of the date on which that person becomes a SENCO, that person holds the qualification.
The training courses are 12 months in duration; however, SENCos have up to three years from the point at which they are designated as a SENCo in which to complete the award. Final responsibility for ensuring the school’s compliance lies with the school’s governing body.
The course is designed to support a SENCo’s professional development, giving them an opportunity to reflect upon and improve their practice whilst learning more about the coordination of special educational needs, leadership and management, policy and supporting the individual needs of children and young people.
The course content is related to local and national contexts and the teaching and learning opportunities are delivered by local and nationally based experts such as experienced teachers, Educational Psychologists, school leaders, Inspectors, therapists and service leads.
The National Award covers:
The teaching takes place over ten face to face days during term-time. The days are evenly spread over the school year and sessions are taught in local authority/school centres and at the University of Birmingham. In addition, all students have access to the online virtual learning environment and full library facilities to support their learning.
The assessments have been designed to meet the requirements of the course and enhance school self evaluation procedures.

This course is for professional engineers who want to specialise in structural engineering or move into this area of expertise to advance their career. Normally students have an undergraduate degree in engineering or a related discipline. Students who don’t have qualifications in civil engineering usually have relevant work experience in civil engineering structures so they are familiar with working within the specific technical domain.
From analysing how carbon nanofibers can reduce the effect of corrosion in concrete to gaining insight from experts developing the new Forth Bridge, this MSc in Civil Engineering Structures has been designed to be broad in scope so you can develop your own area of structural engineering expertise.
As a department, we have broad interests from defining new structural forms to practical application of new materials. We believe civil engineering is a creative and collaborative profession, as much as a technical one. This course gives you the tools to immerse yourself in both the analytical and experimental side of the subject, so you can investigate diverse problems to generate your own structural solutions.
The Civil Engineering Structures MSc mirrors industry practice, so you will work in groups with your peers from the first term onwards and learn from a group of world-leading engineers with diverse research strengths. From earthquake engineering to sustainable construction, you have the opportunity to learn in breadth and depth using high-end industry software to develop safe solutions for real-world projects.
This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. the JBM website for further information.
There is a large dedicated lab on site equipped with facilities to investigate different structures and construction materials from concrete to timber. You also have access to other workshops where you can liaise with mechanical or electrical engineers to develop innovative scale models. There is access to specialist soil labs and large-scale equipment including wind tunnels.
We have an extensive library housing all the references, journals and codes of practice that you will need during your studies.
As part of the University of London you can also become a member of Senate House Library for free with your student ID card.
You will be taught by the staff team within the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering and also from visiting industry experts from around the world.
Teaching mainly takes the form of lectures, but IT sessions and seminars also form part of the Masters degree. Modules are shared between two ten-week teaching terms running from October to December and January to March. Although work for the MSc dissertation starts during the second term, you will conduct most of the research work during the summer months.
The length of the full-time degree is 12 months. A part-time route is also available where you can spend either two or three years completing the programme. If you follow the two-year part-time study route, you will need to attend lectures for up to two days each week. Alternatively, you can complete the degree over three years by attending a single day each week. The timetable has been designed to offer flexibility for part-time students.
In the first term you will consider core technical topics and be introduced to new concepts such as structural reliability. In the second term you will begin to focus your studies by selecting your dissertation topic and by selecting options getting involved in a specific areas of your own interest. Spread over the year you will have design presentations, class tests and reports.
If you select an experimental dissertation you will have the opportunity to use a range of materials. Skilled technical support is available in the workshop and you have access to recently refurbished facilities, including specialist geotechnical labs which accommodate a large flexible laboratory space used for centrifuge model preparation and testing. Adjacent to this you have concrete mixing and casting facilities, a temperature-controlled soil element testing laboratory and a concrete durability laboratory.
For the theoretical modules, you will be assessed through a combination of examinations and coursework. Examinations are shared between the January and April/May examination periods. For the design-oriented modules you are normally assessed by coursework only, where you will work both in groups and individually on challenging projects.
There are six core modules which give you a strong technical foundation and three elective modules from which you can choose two. These reflect the specialist expertise on offer within the academic team. These modules will give you unique insight into computer analysis of structures for blast and fire, bridge engineering, and earthquake analysis where you may look at techniques for analysing structures and safe design. In the final part of the programme you undertake a dissertation in which you can explore an area of interest from a proposed list of themes, some of which are industry-related.
You will be able to study two of the following elective modules:
Graduates have secured employment with leading civil engineering consultants, research institutes and government agencies and pursued doctoral studies both in the UK and internationally. The cohort of 2015 have moved on to jobs and further study working within the following organisations:
