Overview

This degree is designed to develop your understanding of high quality research within the social
science. As part of the department of Physical Education and Sport Studies, you will be a part
of an exciting group investigating a range of contemporary issues in sport, exercise and health.
Through this you will gain advanced knowledge, skills, and experience of conducting
independent research.

Our MRes research projects, as part of the Sport, Exercise, and Health Research Centre,
often take advantage of the extensive links with community bodies and professional sport
organisations. Such collaborations contribute to the students’ subject expertise and broader
transferable skills. This programme therefore allows you to develop competencies as an
independent learner and researcher in a specific field. The MRes Social Sciences provides
a strong foundation for career progression and further study (e.g., PhD). More generally it
will develop skills valued by employers such as high-level organisational skills, independent
research skills, advanced oral and written communication, collaborative project work,
and problem solving.

Course Content

Offered both full-time and part-time, the MRes includes a 90 credit independent research project with three supporting 30 credit modules (e.g., Advanced Research Methods). We adopt a flexible approach allowing you to tailor learning and research to your specific interests. This provides the opportunity to become a well-rounded and critical researcher within the social sciences. In addition, you will conduct high quality research in an area of your interest while being supervised by experts.

Research projects are welcome in the following areas of sport and exercise:
• Physical activity and health
• Psychology
• Physiology
• Biomechanics
• Sports coaching
• Sociology

The PGCE Secondary Science course with an enhancement in Biology, Chemistry or Physics leads to a professional qualification to enable you to enter the teaching profession in a secondary school as a Science teacher with a subject specialism. During the course you will develop subject knowledge across all three science areas, along with practical skills and an understanding of pedagogical issues related to teaching Science in the 11-16 with post 16 enhancement range. In addition you will follow a pathway based on your degree qualification and experience that will enhance your understanding of the teaching of Biology, Chemistry or Physics at Key Stage 4.

At interview you will need to indicate your interest in one or more of three pathways for this PGCE in secondary science. Your suitability for a particular pathway will be explored at interview and you bursary eligibility will depend on the subject specialism of your offer of a place from either:

Science with Biology

You will need to have a good honours degree and a substantial component of biology in your study. You may also consider applying for this pathway in combination with a Biology Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course. You need to demonstrate a commitment to the teaching of Biology.

Science with Chemistry

You will need to have a good honours degree and a substantial component of chemistry in your study. You may also consider applying for this pathway in combination with a Chemistry Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course. You need to demonstrate a commitment to the teaching of Chemistry.

Science with Physics

You will need to have a good honours degree with a substantial component of physics in your study. You may also consider applying for this pathway in combination with a Physics Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course. You need to demonstrate a commitment to the teaching of Physics.

Learning and Teaching in Science

You will explore the science curriculum at Key Stage 3 and 4 through practical work in chemistry, physics and biology that leads to the development of subject knowledge and pedagogical skills. These sessions will take place in newly built laboratories equipped to model modern school science facilities. Several learning and teaching themes are developed throughout the year including safe management of laboratory practical work, teaching outside the classroom, how science works, contemporary issues in science teaching, using models and analogies, literacy, differentiation, use of games, pupil misconceptions, using ICT, inclusion, questioning techniques and citizenship. At all times you are supported by well qualified and experienced tutors.

School Experience

You will spend the majority of your time on the course in schools, developing your teaching skills. You will complete two main teaching placements at different secondary schools; one of 8 weeks and a second longer placement of 12 weeks. During both placements you are likely to have the opportunity teach science across Key Stages 3 and 4 and teach your specialism (biology, physics or chemistry) at Key Stage 4. During your placements your professional development will be supported by both the school and Newman tutors. Newman has an excellent reputation with local schools for providing a strong partnership with schools that support students during their placements. You will also work in a primary school for a short placement, looking at science teaching methods across earlier key stages. The course offers further flexible opportunities for individual 'focus' weeks towards the end of training, where specialised areas can be further developed, including AS/A2 examinations and Education and Professional Studies links with science and your specialism.
