The course is aimed at professionals working with children and young people with mental health issues. The course has been developed by a multi-professional team to provide new insights into working with complex family mental health issues in the community. The perspectives of practitioners from health, social care and education is integrated into the delivery of both modules.
The first module provides you with the framework for assessment of children and young people and the factors which impact on their emotional health. During this module attachment, family dynamics, concepts of risk and resilience are examined in depth.
The second module presents the aetiology of mental disorders and their management and treatment. You build your knowledge and skills in diagnostic tools, cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, family therapy, sensory assessment/integration and psychotherapy through role play and personal research.
All practitioners are required to demonstrate extended specialist knowledge in their chosen speciality when they are applying for career progression. Completing this course allows you to demonstrate your extended knowledge in caring for children, adolescents and families with mental health issues. This course enables you to contribute to the workforce transformation agenda as you apply these skills in your workplace.
Focused upon early years: neuro/cognitive/physical development; attachment; family relationships; risk/resilience, parenting; etc.
Focuses on disorders and interventions/strategies that arise from childhood into adolescence, and how these impact upon the whole family and the community at large.
Modules can be undertaken as stand-alone, or as part of the PgCert and the credits awarded can then be transferred to further awards (PgDip, MSc Advanced Professional Practice) as appropriate.

This unique and internationally focused LLM programme explores how the law responds to, regulates, and promotes new and emerging technologies.
Innovative technologies and convergence in technologies are causing unprecedented societal change. New legal issues are arising, and new regulatory responses emerging. The law can help – or hinder – society’s ability to reap the optimal rewards from technological development.
Across the programme, you will study different modes of regulation – the law, the markets, the technology itself – and critically analyse the advantages and disadvantages of each. The potential of technology to support legal and judicial processes is also examined.
This LLM will enable you to develop an advanced knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, awareness of the problems in the area and understanding of the differing approaches to their solution.
To be awarded LLM Innovation, Technology & the Law you must successfully complete six courses, five of which must be compulsory courses, and a 10,000-word dissertation during your chosen duration of study.
Our broad range of courses covers the areas of information technology law, intellectual property law, and medical law. During your studies you may also have the opportunity to study one course from our range of commercial law courses.
By the end of your studies you should have acquired a high level of knowledge in the field of law and technology, a sophisticated awareness of the problems in the area and of the differing approaches to their solution.
Graduates of our online distance learning programmes progress to a range of careers in Law and related legal fields, including work in local and international firms, government legal departments, other public institutions, international organisations and in academia.
The programmes are also an ideal platform for advanced research.

The Master of Design (MDes) is about design that matters. Master of Design students are focused, high-level problem-solvers. They conduct purposeful advanced design research that connects with people well beyond the university.
The Massey MDes is particularly suited to externally-connected projects, whether commercial, governmental, cultural or community based. Your project need not necessarily have industry funding and an orthodox design brief (although there are scholarships available for such research); you might be developing a design solution for a non-profit or working with a range of external people.
MDes students are expected to produce innovative and responsive design work that is thoroughly grounded in research methodologies and expertly realised. We aim to facilitate design projects that make a significant contribution to research-driven innovation and support sustainable economic growth.
The Massey MDes offers:
The Master of Design consists of the design thesis. You will complete a supervised programme of focused design research and present your results (for example product prototype) with an accompanying written component.
Scholarships are available for some projects.
The MDes runs for 12 months from whenever you start. There are three intakes: February; June; September. Application deadlines are: November 15 (for February); June 15 (for July); August 15 (for September). Funded projects may start at other times of the year if necessary.
It is recommended that international students apply at least three months before their start date. Late applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
Massey MDes students rapidly develop excellent analytical skills. You must identify what the problem is, where the opportunities lie, and develop practical - even elegant - solutions, within tight timeframes. The real-world pragmatism, critical thinking and strong technical skills you develop will set you up for diverse careers.
Many graduates start their own businesses and have gone on to win high profile awards and commissions. MDes graduates also work as:
A general advanced mechanical engineering course particularly relevant to the energy and transport sectors, including mechanical engineering design and assessment.

This provides the opportunity for you to enhance your mechanical engineering skill with a view to developing your career in the management of large engineering projects.
In addition to management, communication, team work and research skills, you will attain at least the following learning outcomes from this degree course:
The MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering is differentiated from other courses available primarily by its industrial context through the strong links we have with national and international industry. We build our industrial links through research and consultancy, which allows us to provide practical and current examples to help illustrate learning throughout the course.
This course is also available on a part-time basis for individuals who wish to study whilst remaining in full-time employment. This enables students from all over the world to complete this qualification whilst balancing work/life commitments. We are very well located for visiting part-time students from all over the world, and offer a range of library and support facilities to support your studies. This MSc programme benefits from a wide range of cultural backgrounds which significantly enhances the learning experience for both staff and students.
This degree is particularly industrially focused; although the course does not at present have an industrial advisory board, the course staff are heavily involved in industrially funded and oriented research and development.
The Head of Department, for example, sits on the IMechE Offshore Engineering committee, two BSI committees, the Engineering Integrity Society and is Chairman of the International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress Offshore, Renewable Energy Committee. Course content is reviewed annually by the course team and project/group work is by and large related to the Department's industrially funded research.
This MSc degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
The taught programme for the Advanced Mechanical Engineering masters is generally delivered from October until March and is comprised of eight compulsory taught modules. Students on the part-time programme will complete all of the compulsory modules based on a flexible schedule that will be agreed with the Course Director.
The group project undertaken between October and April enables you to put the skills and knowledge developed during the course modules into practice in an applied context while gaining transferable skills in project management, teamwork and independent research. You will put in to practice analytical and numerical skills developed in the compulsory modules.
The aim of the group project is to provide you with direct experience of applying knowledge to an industrially relevant problem that requires a team-based multidisciplinary solution. You will develop a fundamental range of skills required to work in a team including team member roles and responsibilities, project management, delivering technical presentations and exploiting the variety of expertise of each individual member. Each group will be given an industrially relevant assignment to perform. Industry involvement is an integral component for the group project, to give you first-hand experience at working within real life challenging situations.
It is clear that the modern design engineer cannot be divorced from the commercial world. In order to provide practice in this matter, a poster presentation will be required from all students. This presentation provides the opportunity to develop presentation skills and effectively handle questions about complex issues in a professional manner. All groups submit a written report and deliver a presentation to the industry partner.
The aim of the individual research project is to provide you with direct experience in undertaking a research/development project in a relevant industrial or research area. You will make a formal presentation of your findings to a panel of academics and industry experts and submit a research thesis.
The individual research project component takes place from March to August.
For part-time students it is common that their research thesis is undertaken in collaboration with their place of work and supported by academic supervision.

Animal welfare science and ethics is an expanding topic of international concern, which is why the University of Glasgow offer an Animal Welfare MSc programme. It aims to improve our knowledge and understanding of animals’ needs, which is required to provide a high standard of care to the whole range of animals kept in captivity.
The programme provides a strong grounding in scientific writing and communication, statistical analysis, and experimental design. It is designed for flexibility, to enable you to customise a portfolio of courses suited to your particular interests.
You can choose from a range of specialised options that encompass key skills in
A total of 180 credits are required, with 40 flexible credits in the 2nd term. See the accompanying detailed course descriptions found in the IBAHCM Masters Programme Overview. When selecting options, please email the relevant course coordinator as well as registering using MyCampus.
Animal welfare is a very broad and applied field and the programme aims to provide coverage of all the different aspects of the topic which are often treated separately. Science is an essential skill in order to have a good understanding of welfare but we appreciate that applicants may come from diverse backgrounds and therefore the course includes a rigorous training in science communication, experimental design, data analysis and interpretation. The programme also includes teaching by practitioners and visits to organisations with first-hand experience of applied welfare problems. The programme also attempts to cover the entire spectrum of animal welfare, including zoos, farms, laboratory animals and wildlife.
Students are exposed to potential work places and can make valuable contacts with professionals in the welfare community. Where possible this is a two-way exchange in which communities are offered help with any issues they have and for which assistance may be provided in finding a solution (e.g. through independent research projects, supervised by university staff). This is also an option open to other courses and could benefit the students in the long-term as well as give the university valuable connections with the wider community.
