Join the UK’s first MA in writing professionally for three markets – film, TV and theatre.

This programme has been designed with the writer in mind: you attend five four-day intensive workshops over the period of 21 months, and spend the rest of your time writing when you like, where you like, with constant script guidance by professional working writers throughout. The four-day workshops run from Thursday to Sunday, minimising your commitment if you work full-time.

‌•Become a member of a small and supportive group of ongoing active writers
‌•Watch your work being performed by actors
‌•Enjoy free London theatre visits
‌•Analyse and discuss nightly film screenings
‌•Produce high-standard scripts honed and ready for the professional market
‌•Direct peformances of your scripts in our own Marylebone Theatre
‌•I‌ndulge yourself in two years of pure writing as you develop a second career in film, TV or theatre
‌•Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa.

Why should I choose this programme?

Have you ever dreamt of writing the next major cinema release or a gripping new drama series for the BBC, Channel 4 or Netflix?

Can you imagine seeing your own play on stage in one of London’s 60+ theatres?

Or you create a work that starts small but grabs someone’s attention, and grows to become the next commercial screen or theatre attraction?

Perhaps your ambition is to adapt your favourite novel or short story for the screen or stage, and see it performed?

All these are possible. Many classic and famous stage and screen works were dreamt up and written by people with no prior experience of writing scripts, and even no ambition to do so, and many works started on a small stage or screen, and got spotted, picked up and became international hits.

This MA gives you all the tools and tuition you need to join those writers whose work we watch and hear daily on TV, in the cinema, on stage and on radio.

Our intensive programme of ongoing distance tuition combined with five four-day writing workshops on our beautiful Regent’s Park campus in central London, will do more than help you to achieve your Master’s degree: it will prepare you for professional commissions and script sales.

The script is the cornerstone of television and film production. No budget is raised, no actor commits, no director is hired, no studios or locations booked, no crews or stage staff employed without it. From idea to the point of the final script, all productions start from it.

Key skills, aims and objectives

You will develop transferable script writing skills which can be deployed in all areas of origination and creative analysis and which will enhance you employment prospects in a very wide and varied industry – not only as a writer but also as a script editor, reader, developer, producer, director, agent or distributor.

Future opportunities

This programme trains writers, script editors, developers, producers, directors, agents and distributors – because all require a first-hand understanding of the writer’s craft.

This course has been designed as the catalyst for a new career: our team of writers guide everything you do – the rest is up to you.

Loughborough University offers experienced managers the opportunity to gain recognised university qualifications in Leadership and Management, with the benefits of part-time learning to fit around your work schedule.

You can choose to enrol for the whole MSc programme or only for the Certificate. On completion of the certificate, you can then register for the Diploma. Similarly, on completion of the Diploma, you can register for the MSc dissertation.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/lam/

About the Programme

The postgraduate programme in Leadership and Management is specially designed for experienced managers seeking to develop practical skills whilst working towards a university award. In providing a general management qualification, the programme is suitable for managers from all functions and all industry sectors. The course covers a wide range of areas, including finance, marketing, leadership and managing people.

At each stage of the programme, you will be asked to draw on your work experience and to apply your learning within your own organisational context:
- Learning objectives reflect the needs of today’s business environment, developing skills and knowledge immediately relevant to you and your workplace.
- Assessments require you to relate each topic to your experience, therefore developing your skills in practical ways.

From beginning to end, therefore, you and your organisation will benefit from investment in this programme.

Programme aims:

- Develop individual skills and prepare participants for management career progression in their chosen industry sector, mainly through development of their technical knowledge and skills, and their conceptual and analytical abilities;

- Prepare participants for management roles in which they will be expected to contribute towards the functional and strategic management of their organisations;

- Enable participants to see ways in which theory can be applied in practice to complex issues with the aim of improving business and management practice;

- Provide a relevant, practical and constantly updated programme through close links with business organisations.

The Certificate level is of particular benefit for experienced first line managers and will provide a solid foundation to then progress onto the Diploma. The Diploma is designed for those either already at middle management level or for those progressing from the Certificate. It also provides a route to progressing onto the MSc (1 year dissertation).

Structure

In response to the needs of busy managers, the programme is offered on a part-time basis. The minimum period of study for the award of MSc is thirty calendar months. The minimum period of study for the award of Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma is twelve and eighteen months respectively.

Delivery

Past students have particularly appreciated the duration and delivery methods of this programme. The Certificate and Diploma programmes are part-time and will normally extend over a period of 12 to 18 months, thereby allowing time for application and reflection. Modules for both the Certificate and Diploma are taught as 2-day or 3-day workshops instead of weekly classes. Our format facilitates participation by managers from a wide geographical area. We can recommend on- and off-campus accommodation.

Learning methods are tailored to participants' needs, including a combination of:
- short inputs
- pair and group work
- case studies
- distance learning and
- work-based assignments and projects.

For the MSc element of the programme, participants have12 months to attend training in research methods and project design as part of designing, implementing and writing up a research project exploring a topic of their own choice.

Assessment

There are no exams for this programme.

Each module is assessed through coursework. Our coursework assignments require the student to read and research the topic of the module, to address a question that is based within a work environment. Several modules require the student to draw on their own work experience and/or their current work situation.

In addition to coursework, modules may be assessed through group presentations.

Content

Each programme starts with an induction event where you will review and improve your skills in learning, researching and writing. Following this, core modules address the fundamentals of management and business competitiveness. The Diploma programme builds upon these fundamentals with further modules, as well as two optional modules, so that you can explore areas of specific interest to you. At each stage, the content of assessments addresses real work examples within your own past and current work experience.

For your MSc project, you agree the topic with the University to address a problem directly impacting upon your work area. As part of that project, you will be expected to demonstrate benefits to your organisation and your own learning.

Core modules (Certificate, Diploma and MSc):
All students irrespective of their qualification aim will study the following modules:
- Financial Management
- Managing and Leading People
- Operations Management
- Marketing Management

About this course

Technology is one of the greatest agents of change in the modern world and it represents a significant opportunity and risk for businesses of all sizes. Developers play a central role in how we interact with the online world and employment in the IT industry is expected to grow at nearly 5 times the UK average over the next decade (CIO, 2015).

Most of the graduates can find employment after completion of the MAs, some returning to more senior positions in their previous employment while others can move into new areas such as school management or language advisory work. Some of our students continue with us to do a PhD.

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.

Technology is one of the greatest agents of change in the modern world and it represents a significant opportunity and risk for businesses of all sizes. Developers play a central role in how we interact with the online world and employment in the IT industry is expected to grow at nearly 5 times the UK average over the next decade (CIO, 2015).

The demands of our global, data-intensive, knowledge based economy is creating a skills gap and making now the perfect time to gain the skills necessary to meet demand.

Northumbria University’s part-time MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies is taught by industry experts around leading-edge content, and is designed to give you the knowledge and expertise to fill this gap.

Key facts

-Part-time Masters degree based in Central London
-Continue working while you study with lectures delivered on 15 weekends throughout the 2 year course
-Build a firm grounding in strategic web development skills and mobile development
-Learn how to manage and utilise the opportunities emerging technologies create

What will I study?

Northumbria University’s part-time MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies provides a firm grounding in strategic web development skills, with a specific focus on mobile development. Blending training with academic rigour, our programme will enable you to develop the lifelong skills needed to rise to the challenge and opportunity of emerging technologies and engage in the ‘bleeding edge’ field. An area which is notoriously high risk and has an increased potential of unreliability.

You will study the core skills required to gain a deep understanding of contemporary web development, industry practice and analysis which forms the basis of next generation technologies. This programme also focuses on mobile development and web development skills you need to engage and succeed in the cutting edge of technology.

During the programme you will also develop independent research skills to manage risk and identify, recommend and deploy relevant technologies both now and in the future. Throughout the course, you will study with a diverse group like-minded IT professionals, share ideas, and build upon your professional network.

How will I be taught and assessed?

The part-time programme is designed to enable working professionals to fit their study around their work and personal life. The programme is assessed through modular assignments and a final dissertation, with no exams.

All taught lectures are delivered on 15 weekends spread throughout the 2 year period, with approximately 24 hours of taught content per module. You will be expected to invest equal time on self-directed learning and reading.

Our MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies is a truly blended learning programme, offering extensive student support in and outside of the classroom.

Course detail

Preferably working with your potential supervisor during the application process, you will devise an in­ depth study of a writer, topic or archival resource that is driven by your interests. The project may develop from a recent undergraduate encounter with a particular text or topic or you may be returning to education looking for a structured environment in which to formally study an established passion.

With the recent acquisition of the Mary Braddon Archive now held by the International Centre for Victorian Women Writers (ICVWW) here at Canterbury Christ Church University and with strong connections to local repositories such as Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library and the Kent History Centre at Maidstone, we can offer unique opportunities for original and innovative literary research projects.

Suitability

The course is for students who want to engage with a substantial, independent research project based on a strong interest in their chosen topic.

Format

The MA by Research is designed to be delivered flexibly, according to your individual needs. You will meet regularly with your first supervisor, and also with your second supervisor, throughout the year to develop your ideas and receive feedback on your progress.

Assessment

Supervised by a panel of experienced researchers you will meet regularly with your first supervisor and present your work-in-progress to the full panel halfway through your registration period. Following advice from this Review meeting you will complete the writing up of your 25-­30,000­word dissertation. There are no exams.

What can I do next?

This programme is a significant qualification in its own right but could also fast­track you, if you're successful, to MPhil and ultimately to PhD qualifications.

The research and writing skills you'll gain, together with the specialist disciplinary knowledge developed during the course, will enhance your employability and can provide an invaluable grounding for careers in teaching, media and journalism, publishing and marketing.
