The Graduate Entry Medicine course is delivered by the University of Nottingham in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site. Read more

Overview

The Graduate Entry Medicine course is delivered by the University of Nottingham in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site.

The four-year medical course commenced in September 2003 and is open to graduates of any discipline. There is an annual intake of 87 home/EU students who are based in Derby for the first 18 months of their course. For the Clinical Years, these students will combine with the students from the five-year course and whilst on placement will rotate around many of the teaching hospitals in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, and in the community. Experiencing different sites across the counties is an educational and desirable feature of your training. Currently our students are on placements at the following hospitals:

Nottinghamshire

Queens Medical Centre, City Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Nottingham
Kingsmill Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Mansfield
Newark Hospital, Newark-on-Trent
Derbyshire

Royal Derby Hospital, Derby
Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Chesterfield

Lincolnshire
Lincoln County Hospital, Lincoln
Grantham Hospital, Grantham
Pilgrim Hospital, Boston
The course aims to widen access to a broader range of applicants than school leavers with A levels. It is intended to build on the intellectual skills acquired by students who have undertaken a first degree.

After successful completion of the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) degree, graduates are required to undergo a further two years of foundation doctor training. Full registration is granted by the GMC at the end of the first year of this training. Non-British nationals graduating from UK medical schools are subject to work-permit restrictions.

Eligibility

Graduates will need a minimum of a lower second-class degree and must apply through UCAS, course code A101.

In addition you must have sat the GAMSAT examination (which is designed to ensure the entrants have the requisite knowledge and reasoning skills) in either September 2014 or September 2015.

NB: registration for GAMSAT and application to the School of Medicine via UCAS are separate processes and both are required for admission to the graduate entry course.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on work experience, as we want to ensure that you are making a well-informed choice about your future career, something which a few days shadowing would not provide. Relevant experience could include volunteering in a care home, working as a healthcare assistant within a hospital.

You also need to complete a satisfactory health check and criminal records checks - for more information see our "Fitness to Practise" information.

English language requirements

IELTS 7.5 (no less than 7.0 in any element)
Pearson Test of English (Academic) 74
Certificate of Proficiency in English: Grade B

MBA at University of Bradford

Once you start the distance learning MBA programme you become part of the Bradford University School of Management student community. Bradford has a great pride in this sense of community and throughout your studies they ensure that you have every opportunity to develop your professional network while also learning from the experiences of other students. This is achieved through the use of small faculty led tutor groups, weekly online discussions, live face-to-face online tutorial sessions and a distance learner on line social space called ‘The Atrium’.

Further to this while you do not have to attend any on-site teaching you will have an opportunity to take part in face-to-face teaching sessions with academics from the School of Management in Bradford and at its partner institutions in the Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Italy and the Philippines (subject to availability).

Course Content

Cycle One:

Business Accoung; Business Economics; Marketing; Operations Management; Managing People; Managerial and Professional Development; Business Research; Business Ethics and Sustainability; Corporate Finance; Strategic Management;

Cycle Two:

Marketing Communications; Entrepreneurship; Project Management; E-Business; International Business Strategy; International Business in Emerging Economies; International Financial Management; Management of Change; Managerial Leadeship; Corporate Marketing

Management Project

At the end of your taught studies you will be required to put into practice what you have learnt during the various modules and complete a 12,500 – 15,000 word management project. The University of Bradford allows its students a great deal of flexibility in their management projects. For example, you may wish to reflect on your academic learning and apply it to a problem currently facing the organisation you work for. You may wish to investigate an issue effecting not just one organisation but an entire industry, or you may wish to conduct ‘desk based research’ – really getting to grips with all the academic arguments and issues surrounding a subject area in order to develop a new management framework.

Throughout the project you will be guided by an experienced academic and you will have access to the School of Management Effective Learning department. The Effective Learning service often proves to be very useful providing students with a clear understanding and guidelines on what is required in order to successfully complete their project.

Programme Assessment

In order to ensure that you have gained the required skills and knowledge you will have to successfully complete a form of assessment for each module. The assessment may be an individual written assignment, an exam or a mixture of both.

So that you can monitor your progress as you work your way through each module there are a number of opportunities for formative assessment (i.e. assessment that will not count to your overall grade). For example, you will be invited to submit 2 pieces of work to your individual tutor. Your tutor will read through the work and provide you with feedback. In addition to this, you will be encouraged to complete a series of online multiple choice questions for each unit studied. Exams can be sat at the University of Bradford, Arden's Head Office in Coventry or can be arranged overseas via the British Council or at a recognised overseas academic institution at additional cost.

This programme is delivered by the Institute of Motion Analysis & Research within the Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery at the TORT Centre.

The Institute of Motion Analysis and Research (IMAR) was established in 2003 by combining the Foot Pressure Analysis Laboratory and the Dundee Gait Laboratory at the Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery Department, University of Dundee. However, gait analysis has been at the forefront of development in this field for the past 25 years and foot pressure measurement for the past 16 years, which gives us a tremendous bank of knowledge on which to draw. IMAR's main goal is to promote excellence in teaching and research and to provide a comprehensive clinical service in the field of motion analysis.

A third laboratory dedicated to Sports Biomechanics is currently nearing completion to augment and support the current facilities of IMAR.

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, to reflect the multi-disciplinary aspect of the research carried out, the respective staff at IMAR were returned into Unit of Assessment 25 (General Engineering - Biomedical Engineering) and Unit of Assessment 8 (Primary Care and Other Community Based Clinical Subjects) where 90% and 85% of our quality profile was deemed of international class. This is an excellent outcome taking into consideration that IMAR was only established in 2003.

Aims of the Programme

The programme is intended to provide students with an understanding and knowledge of the technological aspects, and the fundamental and advanced concepts of motion measurement and clinical analysis.

Programme Content

This is a modular course, which includes a foundation module, plus the following subjects:
Motion Measurement
Fundamentals in Motion Analysis
Advanced Motion Analysis
For more details, visit the course website.

In addition, those studying for an MSc undertake a research project in a relevant area.

Methods of Assessment

The modules are assessed by a combination of written examination and continuous assessment. In addition, the research project, undertaken by those studying towards an MSc, is assessed by dissertation and oral examination.

Coursework:
At the end of each unit you submit an assignment to your tutor for assessment, along with an assignment card containing a signed declaration that the work submitted is your own. A copy of the assignment is returned to you with your marks and the original is retained by the University. The assignments form the coursework element of the final assessment for both courses.

Examinations:
Written examinations are held during March/ April each year in Dundee. Under special circumstances exams can also be sat by arrangement at approved examination centres (for example, at British Council Offices) outside, and in the United Kingdom. If you sit an examination outside Dundee you will be responsible for paying any costs the examination centre may charge

You must complete all the modules in a module group, including the assignment, before you can sit the exam(s) for that particular group. You may choose to sit all the exams at one time or spread them throughout your course .

Dissertation:
The MSc project is assessed by dissertation and viva (oral examination). Vivas are held in Dundee.

Sponsored by the NIHR Rare Diseases Translational Research Collaboration, this new course is part of the MPhil in Clinical Science degree programme. The objective of the course is to equip students with a strong foundation in the fundamental techniques of clinical and translational research in rare diseases, applying contemporary research tools to clinically relevant areas of investigation.

The bespoke rare disease research training will be taught by Cambridge academics and industry, and will incorporate a research project focused on rare diseases. Each student is allocated an individual supervisor, who will provide support throughout the course and help build a customised training programme.

The MPhil includes formal modular teaching in core experimental medicine modules (Statistics, Epidemiology, and Practical Aspects of Clinical Research) as well as specialist modules in Genetics and Rare Diseases. In addition, all students will have the opportunity to undertake a relevant 12 week research project with one of our outstanding supervisors, including clinicians across a range of specialities, geneticists, basic biomedical scientists and bio-medical industry partners. It also aims to provide students with broad research, study and communication skills.

Course detail

Upon successful completion of the MPhil graduates will have developed a strong foundation in the fundamental knowledge and techniques required to enable them to undertake clinical and translational research in rare diseases. They will be able to apply contemporary research tools to clinically relevant areas of investigation.

The MPhil programme will produce clinical researchers who are competitive in seeking research support and who are knowledgeable about the complex issues associated with conducting sound clinical research and trials.

Format

The course consists of core modules in Practical Aspects of Clinical Research, Statistics, Epidemiology; as well as bespoke modules in Genetics and Rare Diseases, timetabled over two terms. Students will be allocated mentor groups to work on a group research project; and all students will be allocated/or negotiate an individual 12 week research project for which they will submit a thesis. The course is examined by two sat exams and thesis assessment.

Assessment

Students are expected to submit a thesis covering the research project undertaken in the second and third terms. There is a maximum length of 15000 words.

Students will sit two exams of 2 hours each. The exams will be multiple choice and structured answers.

Students are required to present their work to their supervisors lab and a supervisor report is submitted to the programme directors - this is not assessed but is used as an indication of the progress of the student.

The full-time components of the course are completed by the end of July. However, to complete the course, students will be required to attend a viva in person on a date to be set in August or early September.

Continuing

Students who are progressing well, have the support of a Principal Supervisor, and have the necessary funding, may apply during the year to continue to a PhD on successful completion of their MPhil. Such students will need to gain a pass mark of 70% or more in the MPhil examination.

Teaching & Learning

Lectures and Seminars
Most courses require students to attend two or three hours of classes each week. This time will be spent in lectures, seminars, tutorial discussions and student presentations: the exact mixture of activities varies somewhat from course to course. At Masters level there is a particular emphasis on students’ contributions and presentations, and students are also expected to read extensively and prepare for each class in advance.

Language courses typically involve more hours of contact time, especially at elementary level, and regular homework.

The assessment on most courses consists of two or three coursework essay assignments and an unseen written examination, sat in April or May. However, some courses are assessed purely on the basis of coursework, including essays and reaction papers.

Dissertation
A 20,000-word dissertation will be written by each student on this programme after his/her return from China, for submission in September of the second year. The dissertation will be on an approved topic linked with one of the taught courses.

Learning Resources
SOAS Library is one of the world's most important academic libraries for the study of Africa, Asia and the Middle East, attracting scholars from all over the world. The Library houses over 1.2 million volumes, together with significant archival holdings, special collections and a growing network of electronic resources.
