The MProf is a programme of postgraduate study that is designed to improve the professional practice of managers and executives. It does this by developing their skills of reflective practice and supporting them in undertaking a research project based on their organisational work activities.

How is the MProf studied?

You can enrol on the MProf in September or February and you will typically continue your studies part-time over 2 years. Most of your study is undertaken while you continue your professional career, and involves the use of online study materials, regular interaction with a personal academic adviser, one or more specialist consultants, and your peers on the programme.

Who is the MProf for?

Our MProf is designed for practicing managers and executives who want to gain new insights and perspectives into management based on critical exploration of their own evolving professional practice. It is particularly appropriate for those wishing to improve their capability to lead and manage change in their organisation. Because the MProf includes a research project focused on their workplace practice, it is particularly relevant for those looking to improve their managerial capability and professional standing at perhaps a midpoint in their career.

What is distinctive about the MProf?

It focuses on developing participants' individual capabilities as reflective practitioners, and through this enhancing their capability for undertaking practice-based research within their own workplace.
Because professionals have achieved a significant amount of both formal and informal learning, the MProf provides an opportunity to make a claim for academic credits against relevant prior learning.
It is designed specifically to support participants in undertaking practice-based research into their workplace activities.
While the knowledge gained from this research is equally rigorous to a research Masters, it is distinctive in that the participant is placed at the centre of their research investigation, and their findings tend to be applicable within their organisation.
Participants' study paths and projects are tailored to meet their individual needs and interests, and those of their organisations.

The. Professional Masters in Elite Performance (MProf). Read more

The Professional Masters in Elite Performance (MProf) is an exciting and original initiative, capable of providing a high level, vocationally focussed award to a broad range of professionals, including, but not limited to, coaches (in sport and business), scientists in support roles, medical/paramedical practitioners, military and other structured service providers, and all those involved in the performing arts. The MProf provides an opportunity for those working in elite performance to complete a programme of study focused on career-based needs and aspirations. 

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

The approaches taken in the Programme reflect current thinking on this type of award.

Accordingly, the vast majority of student learning is achieved through the use of guided reading, with subsequent supported synthesis and discussion through formal (eg, with the personal tutor) and informal (eg, with peers) methods.

Learning will also be supported with the use of WebCT, and supplemented by a variety of other methods including small group discussion, presentations and data collection/analysis.

Data set analysis reports; academic reports and case studies; a personal development plan; a learning diary, and; the MProf dissertation.

PROGRAMME AT A GLANCE

Skills Review & Development (20 credits): This module is designed to enable you to formulate a detailed and contemporary personal development plan (PDP) based on your strengths and weaknesses, and consideration of your current professional environment.

Appreciation of Working Context (40 credits): This module enables you to complete discipline-based review of pertinent factors and theoretical constructs impacting on performance in your domain. This offers you a chance to explore the disciplinary underpinnings of performance development in your domain. This module compliments TL4116 by evaluating your own skills and that of your environment.

Research Methods & Design (20 credits): This module is designed to equip you with the knowledge, techniques and skills to critically appraise research and to undertake your own small project. In doing so it provides a theoretical framework upon which to base both practical and empirical approaches to research. The module is an essential pre-requisite to the dissertation.

Scientific Evolution of Working Practice (40 credits): The module extends your critical reflection on the use of pertinent knowledge sources and interdisciplinary implications for one self-identified, pertinent aspect of the domain. Normally anticipating the topic for final dissertation module, you will develop a critical consideration of the “pros, cons and challenges” of a specific innovation.

Dissertation (60 credits): The dissertation forms the second part of your programme of study. In satisfactorily completing the previous modules, you will design, conduct, analyse and interpret the results of a scientific investigation relevant to a particular aspect of your professional practice.

On completion of the course, students may progress to further study including PhD or DProf in Elite Performance.

FURTHER INFORMATION

At the end of the programme, students will be able to demonstrate:

  • An ability to critically analyse and synthesise the complexities associated with contemporary professional and disciplinary issues, the linkages between them and their application to performance contexts
  • An ability to design and implement an appropriate programme of applied research
  • An ability to present research in a form relevant to their professional context

The MProf provides a structured framework for critically understanding your work-based activity. The course is divided into three phases.

Phase 1

Review of personal and professional learning, research competence and professional capability. The course recognises that the portfolio of material which is required as a pre-condition to admission to CIMA membership fully meets the requirements of this phase. Accordingly qualified members of CIMA move directly to Phase 2.

Part-qualified CIMA members would be expected to participate in Phase 1, which would typically take 6 months and to make a cogent and persuasive case for the relevant credits which demonstrates how they have evolved as a reflective practitioner.

Phase 2

Planning a Practitioner Research Programme. This involves the study of research methodology and exploring research methods which are appropriate to workplace research, and the preparation of a research proposal for implementation. Phase 2 typically lasts for 6 months.

Phase 3

The Professional Practice Project. This is a major piece of work related to organisational change and/or professional development. It enables candidates to demonstrate research capability in a professional context. It provides an opportunity to interrogate the learning you are achieving in the workplace, and to express this in writing in a systematic way that is both informed by and informs relevant theory. Phase 3 continues for a minimum of 12 months.

As postgraduate students, highly-talented individuals work within games development teams towards the production of innovative computer games solutions. Working closely with a team of full-time staff who are highly-experienced in both the games industry and in academic teaching, and under the guidance and mentorship of computer games industry representatives, you will develop professional skills and knowledge relevant to identified development roles within the industry.

During the course of your studies you will ultimately be expected to demonstrate applied excellence in your specialist area, as well as professionalism, flexibility, the ability to adapt in team working situations, and creativity and innovation towards product development.

Join our Graduate School

Our Graduate School is a dedicated facility providing support, training and professional development opportunities to our vibrant postgraduate community. Specially designed to promote integration and inculcation of interdisciplinary working in our next generation of researchers, postgraduates study and learn together at Abertay - from Environmental Management to Law, Psychology, Bioscience, Economics and Business, Cybersecurity and Computer Games Development.

When you join us as a postgraduate student or researcher, you’ll be joining a community of creative like-minded scholars and will automatically be provided with access to our dedicated study and social spaces – a forum in which you can meet, work and learn with other researchers and postgraduates from across the University. You’ll benefit from training and professional development opportunities as well as support with funding applications, placement opportunities, teaching support, public engagement and outreach activity.

What you study

The goal of the MProf in Games Development is to turn graduates into professional developers by placing them into development teams, with industry-relevant project goals and deliverables. The teams enjoy a high level of independence in how they meet the game design briefs and approach the development process.

Supervision, mentorship and academic support look to emphasise the consequences of their decisions and processes, allowing the students to experience an organic and logical development and evolution of best practices. In addition, students develop their awareness in areas of potential innovation and research, and are encouraged to publish their work.

The remaining core elements of the course seek to separate the myths from the realities of working in the games industry, and expand students’ awareness of design considerations with regards to the comparative importance and impact of narrative and gameplay theories. Uniquely, students select optional modules from across the entire university, allowing further development of their core skills if required, but more specifically allowing for a more individual and tailored learning experience through the additional study of areas of personal interest such as business, marketing, psychology and perception.

Open, flexible working spaces

We have developed a unique concept of learning environment and creative incubator, encompassing ways of teaching that focus on building general skills alongside the subject-specific knowledge to support your career and life objectives. It is designed to give you the edge in the global knowledge economy when you graduate.

This White Space environment is a thriving hub of activity, mixing the talents of undergraduates, postgraduates, lecturers, business people, artists and broadcasters, surrounding our students with the buzz of a real working environment, allowing them to share real-world knowledge and experience.

How you learn and are assessed

Assessment methods throughout the core modules focus on formative (constant) assessment through regular meetings and discussion sessions, rather than exams. This is to allow students to improve in confidence, communication skills and core discipline skills as they progress, allowing them to try new working practices and approaches as and when they may be required. An emphasis is placed on effective participation as a team player, and in correctly identifying and prioritising a project’s key requirements and challenges.

he REALM (Rural Estate and Land Management) courses provide a first step on the route to qualification as a chartered surveyor. All prospective chartered surveyors must complete the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) offered by RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), and the programmes provide the academic foundation for candidates wishing to pursue the rural APC.

The MProf and MSc REALM programmes are both validated by RICS under the RICS-Harper Adams University Partnership agreement, recognising the high regard in which the courses are held. The MProf in particular, is one of a very small number of courses in the country to have this distinction with regard to the rural APC, which is why you are required to study 12 modules (180 credits) rather than eight (120 credits). The postgraduate certificate (PgC) provides a route for students who may fall short of our exacting entry requirements to get up to speed before transferring to either the MProf or MSc programmes.

Modules cover the main areas required for professional practice, in particular providing the necessary legal foundations for practice, and covering the all-important areas of the UK planning system, land tenure, rural valuation, primary production in agriculture and forestry, countryside and environmental management. A wide choice of modules means that you can tailor the programme to your own requirements.

The MProf programme is particularly popular with part-time students, often graduates who are able to combine suitable employment with study and progression through the APC.

Employment prospects in rural practice are good, and successful graduates have gone on to a wide range of jobs in recent years on rural estates and with local and national firms of rural surveyors and agricultural valuers. Feedback from students shows that the intensive modular structure is well-received, along with the practical slant of many of the assignments. This is underpinned by the professional standing of many of the tutors, who are active with the profession at the highest levels nationally and act as Assessors for the APC.

How will it benefit me?

The MProf/MSc will enable you to analyse a range of stakeholder interests and their influence, generally and site specifically, in rural land management. You will become competent in a range of techniques for rural land management and appraisal, be able to appraise the value and worth of rural land, and review the role of property in organisations.

Students also become skilled at evaluating and exploiting the latest developments in technology, and developing performance indicators in rural estate management and strategy. You will learn to formulate land management strategies which meet objectives for sustainable management while taking into account legislature, regulations, ethics and morals, the environment, amenities and commercial needs.

You will also learn to evaluate how previously implemented land management strategies have achieved their objectives, and adapt them to new requirements within an evolving economic, social, legal and political framework, with due regard to developments in sustainable development and biodiversity. You will become competent in professional methodologies used by chartered surveyors to manage and appraise rural land and property.

MSc students carry out an independent research or development project to advance their understanding of a particular issue in rural land management, or to resolve a specific and novel technical problem facing rural land managers in practice.

Funding

The full-time and two year part-time courses are eligible for a postgraduate loan.
