Why this course?

We know the commitments of being a working manager means you need a programme that fits around your career.

Our part-time MBA (evening study) offers you the opportunity to gain a valued and well-established management qualification in a way that's best suited to your professional and personal circumstances.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/mba-parttime/

Benefits of the part-time course

To your classes and groups, you'll bring issues you deal with on a day-to-day basis along with in-depth knowledge of current practice in your industry.

This dynamic brings great value to both you and your employers as new possibilities and ways of working are opened up at both an organisational and personal level.

As the vast majority of our participants live and work in the central belt of Scotland, studying part-time at Strathclyde gives you the opportunity to get to know people from across the broad spectrum of Scottish industry. Currently the part-time route includes representatives from sectors such as:
- financial services
- oil
- pharmaceutical
- IT
- retail
- public and not-for-profit organisations.

This provides you with the unique opportunity to establish a powerful network amongst Scotland's up and coming managers.

A major advantage of the Strathclyde MBA is its flexibility and responsiveness to your needs. If you change your job or move away from the area, we’ll be happy to discuss which study options might best fit with your circumstances.

How does the part-time programme work?

When you join the part-time programme you’ll join a group of like-minded individuals with whom you’ll progress through the programme.

You’ll attend two sessions in the evening each week from October to June. Course participants often get together at other times to work on course material.

There are also four compulsory weekend schools spread over the period of study. These focus on the skills and knowledge we consider crucial for successful managers.

We also offer a range of other study options including intensive seminars to aid your study of specific subjects and a selection of elective classes which run over the weekend.

Typically, part-timers complete their degree in around three years although some choose to accelerate the programme to complete in a little over two years.

Accreditation

Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The three international accrediting bodies are:
- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
- The European Quality Improvement System
- The Association of MBAs

To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one we're proud of.

- Association of Masters of Business Administration (AMBA)
You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.

Entry requirements

Our selection process is designed to identify talented professionals from a wide range of academic, business and cultural backgrounds.

While there are formal requirements for entry listed below, we take into consideration:
- your potential
- your interpersonal and team working qualities
- the range and nature of your managerial experience

In order to assess these skills, we ask you to complete a number of essays outlining your experience and aspirations alongside references supporting your work experience and academic record.

We may ask you to undertake a formal interview to discuss your achievements and aspirations. We would encourage you to visit the school or centre you’re applying to and to ask as many questions as you need to clarify your decision.

Qualifications & experience

For entry to the MBA programme you must:
- hold a degree from a UK university, or equivalent academic qualification from a comparable non-UK institution. If you studied for your undergraduate degree at a non-UK institution we'll need a copy of your degree transcript. Professional qualifications will also be considered.
- be at least 24 years of age.
- have a minimum of three years' full-time postgraduate experience where the management of people and resources has played a significant role.

Entry at Diploma level may be offered to applicants who do not hold sufficient recognised degree level qualifications, but who do:
- hold non-degree/professional qualifications plus at least five years' varied management experience.
- have no formal qualifications but extensive and varied management experience (10 or more years).
- are exceptional candidates over the age of 24 with a minimum of two years' managerial experience. This is available only to candidates applying to routes other than full-time.

Admissions testing

Although the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a standard requirement of our admissions process, strong verbal reasoning and numerical abilities are critical for the MBA and we may ask you to undertake such a test.

Competence in English

The MBA programme is highly interactive and requires a high level of competence in English speaking, writing, reading and understanding. A minimum score of 6.5 in IELTS is required if your first language is not English. We may consider applicants who fall slightly below these standards if they are willing to undertake pre-sessional study.

Computer competence

In order to undertake the Diploma/MBA you need to be competent in word processing, the use of spreadsheets and in report writing.

Learning & teaching

The Strathclyde MBA is not just a business programme. It’s a stimulating, challenging and potentially life-changing experience, which will make you question, re-think and re-evaluate how you do business.

The Strathclyde MBA is highly experiential and based on collaborative learning. You share your varied work experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills.

The MBA will shape and guide you as a reflective, open thinking, adaptive learner.

Careers

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.

That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.

We work with you to complement your own proactive job search efforts. We help you to use your own particular career background and strengths to help with your next career move.

You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.

You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.

This course offers an innovative and integrated route for those looking to become qualified secondary school teachers who need a flexible programme of study- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pgce/secondary-flexible/. Read more
This course offers an innovative and integrated route for those looking to become qualified secondary school teachers who need a flexible programme of study- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pgce/secondary-flexible/

The part-time PGCE is available for those wanting to teach English, Design & Technology, or Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics).

You will take part in College-based workshops and tutorials where you’ll be fully supported by a network including mentors, tutors and peers. At the same time, you will spend an overall period of 24 weeks working in a school environment, gradually taking full responsibility over classes.

We will normally arrange your placement in a school that is already in partnership with us. Most of these schools are in the Greater London area. The timings of the two main blocks of school experience are arranged to meet your requirements and those of the placement schools.

The programme is part-time in order to fit around your individual circumstances and how intensively you are able to work.

You will normally be expected to complete within two academic years. (You may also be able to take limited periods of ‘time out’, in agreement with your College tutor.)

Additional costs

On top of your PGCE fees, you will have to cover your travel costs to your school placements.

We produce reading packs electronically and in hard copy format. There’s a small charge for the hard copy reading packs. You may also be asked to contribute towards trips and some materials for your modules.

Contact the department

If you have specific questions about the degree, contact Emma Snowden (Science) or Alan Bright (D&T).

Structure

A substantial part of the PGCE will be supported self-study, which enables you to work from home and around other commitments. In addition, a compulsory programme of workshops and classes based at Goldsmiths provides the essential elements of face-to-face teaching and collaborative learning.

A staged approach is taken within the modules. Significant elements of the programme must be followed in sequence.

There are a minimum of nine College-based work days across the programme – a combination of Saturdays and weekdays. Because of the significant self-study element on the programmes, you are required to be well-organised and able to meet deadlines. In some circumstances, you may be exempted from aspects of the self-study modules if you can show evidence of having completed an equivalent training course before you start the part-time PGCE.

You will complete the equivalent of 24 weeks in school over the three school-based modules. In some cases, previous relevant experience (such as teaching overseas) or experience of working with children in other settings (homework clubs or summer schools, for example) may count towards this total, if supporting evidence is provided.

We normally expect you to arrange your other commitments to enable you to undertake the school-based modules on a full-time basis. In some cases it may be possible for you to complete School Experience 1 on a part-time basis, as three or four days a week over a longer period of time. However, School Experience 2 consists of full-time attendance in the school for one block of 12 weeks.

We place a strong emphasis on active and collaborative learning, and we'll train you to become a reflective and socially conscious teacher.

Teaching placements

We have partnerships with many London schools, offering you the chance to gain teaching practice in socially mixed, multi-ethnic urban classrooms.

Support

We offer a high level of support through a system of school and personal tutoring.

Research

Staff in the department carry out world-leading research – we're ranked 8th in the UK for the quality of this research.**

It is designed for professionals working in London who aspire to high-powered careers in finance and who wish to acquire a more in-depth and academically rigorous knowledge of the subject. The programme is specifically tailored to meet the needs and demands of part-time students in employment, not only in terms of academic content but also in terms of the structure and timing of teaching and the support provided for students throughout the programme.

The academic structure and content in this programme is identical to the full-time MSc Finance programme, only differing in the mode of teaching, which is delivered through evening sessions. Being only a short journey form the City and Canary Wharf, LSE is ideally located for professionals to commute to and from the office for lectures, to study with their classmates or attend events and public lectures.

Graduate destinations

As the vast majority of MSc Finance (part-time) students are already working in finance (or in a related role) when they join the programme, each individual’s future direction upon graduation depends on their own aspirations and career experience. However, whatever their reason for pursuing the programme, whether it be to help fast-track their professional development, change trajectory or simply gain more knowledge in relation to their current role, the programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in, and enhance, their career.

This programme is not a suitable preparation for the PhD Finance at LSE (see MSc Finance and Economics).

Delivered by the Cranfield Forensic Institute this course focuses on providing the knowledge and skills required to conduct comprehensive forensic examinations of digital devices. Guest lectures are delivered by Digital Forensic practitioners throughout the course, with guest lecturers coming from both law enforcement and private companies.

Please note the MSc is available as a full and part-time option. The PgCert and PgDip are only available as a part-time option.

Course overview

The Digital Forensic MSc is available both full-time and part-time. Students will complete a number of taught modules each with theoretical and practical elements and, for the MSc, an individual research project.

Individual Project -

The individual project will involve academic research in a specific area of digital forensics. The student will produce a substantial dissertation detailing their investigation and findings. Students are pushed to produce high quality, novel research during this period, and research outcomes are often at the cutting edge of the subject.

Assessment -

The assessments on this course are a mixture of written and practical exams, oral presentations, coursework assignments and (MSc only) a thesis.

The coursework assignments vary, but will include conducting digital forensics examinations of disk images for particular scenarios, conducting research into the artefacts left by applications, and further written assignments on digital forensic processes and theory.

Facilities and resources

Facilities -

There are comprehensive facilities and resources to support study on the Forensic Computing course.

Digital Forensics Laboratories -

The majority of taught modules will be delivered in a dedicated digital forensics teaching computer laboratory regularly reconfigured for different modules, and equipped with all the necessary hardware and software. For example for the “Mac OS X Forensics” module, the PCs are removed and replaced with Apple Macs, for the “Network” module students build their own network and connect to a domain, and for the “Forensic Computing using Linux” module the standard Windows build is replaced with Linux.

There is also a separate digital forensic student laboratory available for general use by students for coursework and research. This is equipped with the latest digital forensics software including Encase 6 and 7, FTK 5, Blacklight, NetAnalysis and WinHex.

In addition a digital forensics research laboratory is used by staff and by students conducting research projects. This contains mobile phone acquisition equipment, reconfigurable networks and customisable hardware.

A network forensics research laboratory is available for research into network protocols and evidence from servers.

A “Crime Scene Room” is used during search and seizure exercises where students will learn how to identify and secure the physical evidence upon which digital evidence resides. The room is equipped with cameras so actions can be recorded and played back in order to analyse and improve strategy and behaviour. It is reconfigured to simulate a variety of crime scenarios.

Learning resources -

Lectures are delivered almost exclusively in the digital forensics teaching laboratory and these along with the practical sessions are supported using Moodle, an open source Virtual Learning Environment ensuring that notes are available electronically. Exercises and exercise data can be downloaded for later study and interactive digital exercises can be used to support the learning of complex subjects.

The Barrington Library provides resources to support the main teaching material where electronic and physical access is available to the latest digital forensics journals including Digital Investigation. Access to the latest textbooks, digital forensics magazines, and past Cranfield digital forensics theses that date back to 2002 are also accessible. Cranfield University subscribes to the latest library databases so digital forensics papers located in non-specialist journals can also be easily located during research and assignments.

Full-time and part-time students will join together during classroom (residential study school) sessions. This is an ideal opportunity for networking.

Entry Requirements

Normally a first or second class Honours degree or equivalent in science, engineering or mathematics. Alternatively, a lesser qualification together with appropriate work experience may be acceptable.

The full-time course is ideally suited to recent graduates in a related subject such as Computer Science who wish to specialise in Forensic Computing. It is also suitable for those who have recently completed a BSc in Computer Forensics, Digital Forensics, Cybercrime Forensics or a related subject, who would wish to deepen their knowledge, improve their skills and increase their employability, in what is a very competitive market.

The part-time course is more suited to those already in full-time employment, such as law enforcement officers, government staff, security consultants, accountancy and banking organisations, corporate security personnel and members of associated agencies in both the UK and overseas. This programme could lead to a new career or promotion with an existing employer. Guidance may be sought by those who do not have the formal qualifications necessary to enrol immediately onto the programme, as to the best study route to take. Please contact us ()

The world leading Department of Chemistry (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/chemistry) and Institute of Chemical Biology (http://www.chemicalbiology.ac.uk) at Imperial College London is offering a 1-year multidisciplinary Masters in Research (MRes) in Plant Chemical Biology.
This course will equip you with the skills to tackle problems that lie at the plant/physical science interface on a molecular level. Chemical Biology through physical science innovation will lead to the development of novel technologies, vital to overcome future global challenges such as addressing the food, fuel and fibre needs of our growing population.
Advances in understanding biomolecular processes have often depended on the collaborative efforts of biochemists, chemists and physicists. Students will get training from both academic and industrial leaders in the plant and chemical biology fields. The course will enable students to bridge the gap that can exist between the physical and plant science disciplines because of differences in ‘language’, perspective and methodology. The course consists of an 8-month interdisciplinary research project, specialist lectures, transferable skills courses, interactive workshops, tutorials, journal clubs, and seminars.
