Imagine if you could play a pivotal role in providing care that prevents or delays type 2 diabetes...

With the number of people being diagnosed with diabetes reaching over three million in the UK, there has never been a more crucial time to ensure healthcare professionals are fully equipped to deal with this epidemic.

We believe identifying those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus and working to prevent and/or delay the condition is a key part of addressing this issue. Our one-day course is designed to equip healthcare assistants and nurses working in general practice with the skills and knowledge to help prevent diabetes.

The course is delivered by experts in primary care diabetes and involves lectures and workshop activity - all very practically focused. The emphasis is on learning why and how to deliver more effective care, and planning how best to do this within your practice.

Topics covered include

-Prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus, and why this is important.
-Making the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose regulation.
-Case finding in general practice (including how to record and follow up).
-Lifestyle advice.
-Reflecting on practice.
-Establishing a pre-diabetes register.
-Facilitating early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
-Enabling safe intensive treatment of early type 2 diabetes.

An introductory pack will be provided to all participants in advance of the course start date.

Participants will be actively encouraged to discuss the learning outcomes from the day with their colleagues in general practice.

Students will undertake a review of five patients who have attended their practice for the NHS Health Check and have been identified as being at risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus. On completion, a certificate of learning will be issued by the University.

The course is designed for those involved in the NHS checks, in particular healthcare assistants and nurses working in General Practice. It focuses on screening and managing cases of individuals with a history of impaired glucose regulation or risk of type 2 diabetes.

Your programme of study

If you are fascinated by our changing cultural life across the world and you want to experience being involved in communication the the festivals and events we have on offer globally, the cultural and creative communications programme offered by Aberdeen will help you towards that goal. In Scotland alone there are many famous festivals such as the Fringe and Edinburgh Festival, the Fireballs Festival in Stonehaven near Aberdeen, Uphelia in Shetland, and the Cullen Skink contest in Cullen to name just a few. The programme is very exciting as it is multidisciplinary and you can choose a variety of different options in line with your own interest areas. This is not just a typical communications programme in the sense of simply writing press releases or articles, it offers you the chance to get involved in the build side of things and the actual communication of exhibitions themselves too.

You may be interested in bringing static objects to life from museums, you may be interested in the type of environment in which audiences engage with culture, or have an interest in Northern World.  You learn some very useful skills within marketing and creative writing to enable you to bring creativity to life to promote creativity to others.  Other optional courses include art history, archives, curating exhibitions and Cultural Property Law. If your interests lie in museums you acquire plenty of all round skills to communicate within marketing, exhibitions and events. If you want to go into a gallery setting you still acquire these all round skills but your interests will be more in the fine art world specifically, though some museums often provide galleries. The business skills you can learn are very useful to market, protect and lead teams within the creative sector.

Career opportunities can be as varied as the courses you study or you can choose to specialise within specific areas of the arts. You can work in museums, private and public collections, galleries (Contemporary and Historic), heritage attractions, castles, stately homes, arts organisations and charities, local government and arts initiatives, festivals and within marketing for these areas. You can also work as a journalist, PR professional and researcher.

The course is designed for experienced teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (and this includes teachers of EFL, ESL, EAL, ESP, and so on) in whatever geographical context or type of institution they are working. Applications from both native- and non-native-English-speaking teachers are welcome.

This course enables experienced TESOL practitioners to further their careers with regard to: obtaining positions of seniority; undertaking new areas of professional activity; embed practice within a research dimension; contribute to the professional development of other teachers; and act in advisory capacities to teaching and associated agencies. It also aims to help you to develop advanced knowledge of TESOL-related research, theory, and areas of debate; understand more deeply your role as TESOL practitioner given the international currency of English and the developments in the educational environment afforded by technology access and global networking; develop advanced professional skills such as conducting needs analyses and evaluating, adapting and designing teaching and learning resources; develop academic literacy.

Teaching and learning

The course is taught by lecturers who themselves have been language teachers (TESOL and other languages) with experience of working in Britain and overseas. Formal lectures are rare and instead classes tend to mix sections of input with group-work, computer and video activities, simulations and problem-based learning.

The course can be characterised in terms of participant's critical reflection - as informed by theory and research as well as by their professional experiences. We encourage both individual and co-operative learning and research and hope to foster an ethos of lifelong learning. As our students are themselves experienced teachers, we appreciate the wealth of knowledge and practical experience that they bring to the course and we encourage the sharing of professional insights including their fellow participants. We provide training in the use of electronic databases, library resources, and computer based statistics packages. Many other key skills will be developed during the course.

Coursework and assessment

The form of the assessment varies from unit to unit but usually consists of a written assignment of 3.500 words for a 15-credit course unit (double for a 30-credit course unit). You are expected to demonstrate an understanding of the relevant theory as applied to your professional practice, and also demonstrate technical, academic, and professional skills . All assignments will be followed by both formative and summative feedback.

You can choose between a Mode A (traditional type) or a Mode B (portfolio type) of dissertation. Mode A dissertations can be empirical (report on a research project); conceptual (discuss or develop a conceptual understanding or framework of relevance to your professional development); or practical (development of a rationale for practical activities related to professional practice). Mode A practical dissertations and Mode B portfolio-type dissertations are very similar but in the latter the materials produced are close to being in a publishable format.

Career opportunities

Our graduates go on to positions of seniority, undertake new areas of professional activity, such as publishing or materials development, contribute to the professional development of other teachers, and act in advisory capacities to teaching and associated agencies at both national and international level. Some also proceed to doctoral studies in TESOL, either in other contexts or joining our own thriving doctoral community.

Your programme of study

This is an interdisciplinary programme which allows you to connect our contemporary world with the past. You can study a great range in terms of courses that make up your programme and you have the ability to really understand ancient kingdoms and civilisations from the past. You may want to study further after this programme or you may be able to advise within heritage tourism, museums and tourist sites. You may also like to get involved in writing and publishing or a wide range of other careers. Aberdeen provides you with a great teaching experience in an even greater setting which is medieval in origin.

The campus and university were initiated in 1495 so there are plenty of architectural wonders and history to interest you whilst you study in 'Old Aberdeen.'  The architecture is truly stunning and totally unexpected as you enter the university from the centre of Aberdeen. As you would expect in a university of this age and rich heritage there are also special collections hosting a variety of cultural artefacts. If you haven't visited University of Aberdeen it is well worth a tour to understand just how much history you get whilst you study. There are obvious connections from the university with many of the periods of medieval and early modern eras you study. 

The courses reflect research interests drawn from various disciplines including History, Church History and Divinity, Celtic, English, French, History of Art, Law, Philosophy and Scottish and Irish Studies and is supported by highly specialised teaching and research staff. The MLitt provides ample opportunity to use the large depository of late medieval and early modern materials in the University's Special Collection, which has new state of the art rooms in the new Library.

Your programme of study

More and more of us want to know about how people lived in the UK and Europe, what sort of cultures existed and why these cultures were named Celtic or Anglo Saxon. Why did these people travel or move to the UK as we know it now, what other people were on the scene and how did they influence these people? We know that the Celts came to Britain 500 years ago and Anglo Saxons from 400-1066, joining the Jutes and Frisians from Demark with the language we know today in Northumbria, Mercia, East Anglia, Wessex. The programme allows you to learn more about specific areas of the UK and their influences and folk tales plus history. If you enjoy history you will be fascinated with this discipline and subject areas.

You learn about European Celts, German invaders with Roman culture and legacy. There are in-depth insights of kingdoms, cultures, invasions and accounts of who we really are. The programme offers theories, method and languages, history and literature.

Your programme of study



Human Rights and Criminal Justice are both relevant if you are working internationally or with people who are international especially but human rights law probably pertains to many disciplines within law in different guises in relation to the various rights which humans have rights to enjoy. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 as a response to some of the issues within the second world war. The UK Human Rights Act was passed a lot later in 1998 to provide equality, fairness, dignity and respect. There are civil rights and political rights and each country has a different interpretation of these rights. When combined with criminal justice the emphasis is on fair treatment in relation to human rights.

The degree gives you the greatest possible chance of a range of careers as it is split between Human Rights and Criminal Justice but within this you can study oil and minerals, humanitarian law, use of force criminal law which allows you the greatest choice of careers within law, civil service, diplomacy and negotiation, policing, human rights NGOs and advocacy groups and more. The programme has a strong emphasis on law, politics and Human Rights areas such as education, health, housing and family rights. You develop unique insights that align with employment options within this area of law.
