Are you a professional musician with a goal? Do you have a specific vision of your future? Then the Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire could be the suitable study to achieve your personal goals. The Prince Claus Conservatoire is internationally known as an innovative institute of high quality with a large regional and international network. The Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is there for ambitious musicians who want to develop themselves in a self-chosen direction.

There are five study routes within the Master:
-Classical Music
-New York Jazz
-New Audiences & Innovative Practice
-Instrumental Learning & Teaching (starts September 1st 2014)
-Wind Band Conducting (starts September 1st 2014)

High Musical Artisanal Level: Unique

The Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is innovative compared to other Masters of Music. The educational profile is unique because of the integration of musical mastery, innovative strength (practice based research) and entrepreneurship. In the final exam students show that they are capable of combining musical mastery, research and entrepreneurship in relation to a specific (social) context and thus find their way in the professional field.

High musical artisanal level

A high musical artisanal level is expected from you. The focus is on refining your playing and on developing your ability to improve your skills. This is why your main subject is most important, which is the instrument that you play. Experimenting is important, as is the relation of your music with specific contexts (your audience, a specific event, a special target group). This all corresponds with the goals in your personal study plan.

Personal study plan

You carry out practice based research in order to become a better musician. The research is directly related to your personal study plan. Your research will be linked to individual, methodological coaching which also focusses on the content. Your research finally leads to a presentation which is directly related to your musical practice. An entrepreneurial attitude is essential to be able to successfully translate your musical passion to social contexts. Your vision on your personal future is the main focus.

Four reasons why the Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is unique:
1. You choose your own study subject and development: you determine what you want to learn and how you want to learn it. This is your study plan.
2. You determine largely who will be your teachers. You can optimally make use of our teachers' expertise. We also make sure that we get the expertise somewhere else if we cannot offer it within the school.
3. You have the possibility to study abroad for a period of time. For example within the study route New York Jazz: the third semester takes place in New York.
4. This Master is unique in its concept and curriculum compared to other Masters of Music in the Netherlands.

The MSc is building a reputation for producing excellent scientists and highly sought after graduates. Our postgraduates have been offered employment in some of the most prestigious companies in the UK and Europe, in fields ranging from analytical toxicology to forensic DNA analysis.

On this course, you can study a range of specialist areas in analytical and forensic science. It focuses on cutting edge research, the latest analytical techniques, and transferable and professional skills that will prepare you to practise as a professional analytical or forensic scientist. A 60 credit research project of your choice allows you to customise the MSc and specialise in your chosen field.

“Completing this MSc gave me a much more advanced knowledge of analytical instruments and techniques and has been a great help in preparing me for the role that I now have in toxicology. The amount of hands on practical experience in the Masters is much more extensive than in a Bachelors degree and it’s the higher level of practical work that can make the difference. Covering a variety of techniques applied to a wide range of sample types ensures you have an understanding that other graduates will not have, particularly after the completion of your dissertation by spending a considerable amount of time in the lab. The addition of the PRINCE2 qualification also makes you more employable to commercial labs. I have no doubt that without this MSc my chances of gaining a job with a career path would be significantly less.” – Laura Miles, MSc Analytical and Forensic Science graduate.

You will study the following modules:
- Advanced DNA analysis
- Separation science
- Analytical toxicology

You will also receive high level practical training in ion mobility mass spectrometry, GCMS/MS, LCMS/MS and ICP-OES. There is a particular focus on hair as a matrix for forensic toxicological analysis. You will also be fully trained in experimental design and effective method development.

- Major crime scene analysis
You will learn how to effectively process major and specialist crime scenes through our simulation facilities, and will study novel mapping techniques such as 3D scanning and LIDAR as applied to crime scene investigation.

- Expert witness techniques
To improve your employment prospects, you will also learn about the law as it relates to the forensic scientist and their relationship with the police, lawyers and courts, and the role of the expert witness.

The two-year MSc in Sustainable Urban Development will provide you with a rigorous and critical introduction to the policy and practice of sustainable urban development. The course exposes students to sustainable urbanism as both an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary subject at global and local scales across cities of the Global North and South.

Description

The programme attracts a lively and engaged group of students, who combine postgraduate study with their professional lives, and an active alumni network. Students on the course typically come from a wide international background and share a variety of work experiences in urban development and the built environment. The MSc is designed for those operating in a range of urban contexts worldwide - public, private or third sector organisations - and fosters collaboration, creativity, perspective-sharing and effective networking skills. The programme runs in partnership with the Prince's Foundation for Building Community, and is an accredited course within the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors University Partnership.

The course is delivered by tutors from institutes and departments across the University of Oxford, and in collaboration with comprehensive range of commercial, governmental and non-government organisations specialising in sustainable urban development.

Programme details

The course is delivered through a mix of tailored teaching and learning methods, including seminars, site visits, peer-review, research workshops and individual tutorials. Classes are seminar-based, encouraging active participation and enabling students to learn from each other. You will prepare for sessions by reading a selection of recommended books, book chapters and articles. Typically, there are six to eight weeks between each teaching week, during which time you should expect to spend an average of 15 hours per week of independent study.

The course comprises four elements:

- core themes
- urban theory
- research methods
- the dissertation

You will attend eight intensive residential teaching weeks during the two years of study. Two of these eight teaching weeks are held at the offices of the Prince's Foundation for Building Community in London. The remaining six are held in Oxford at the Department for Continuing Education. Each teaching week addresses a core theme of the course.

During teaching weeks, you will also follow foundation courses in urban theory and research methods tailored to sustainable urban development, comprising sessions on the intellectual history of sustainable urbanism, paradigm shifts and challenges in sustainable development, urban economics, research design, research ethics and preparation, bibliography and library resources.

For each teaching week, you will complete an essay of up to 3,000 words on that theme. The first essay is formative and will provide you with valuable feedback at the start of your studies. The remaining seven essay assignments are summative.
You will spend the latter half of the second year working on a 15,000-word dissertation. You will choose the topic, with the guidance of your supervisor, and, in most cases, spend time doing fieldwork and gathering data during this period.
