Course in brief

This course prepares graduates to teach in secondary schools. As well as gaining a PGCE, students are assessed against the national standards in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

This specialism provides graduates with the depth of knowledge required to enable them to become reflective and pro-active practitioners.

The opportunity to undertake masters level study within the course facilitates progression to an MA Education award after completion of the PGCE.

[[Professional accreditation ]]
The course leads to the recommendation of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Course structure

The course comprises four strands: subject study/subject education, education studies, placements and professional development.

The subject study/subject education strand builds upon existing subject expertise and provides students with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the specialist subject in the secondary school context, allowing them to formulate their own rationale for teaching. Students consider pedagogical issues within curriculum development, and the learning and teaching strategies pertinent to the specialist subject, regularly reflecting upon, analysing, recording and evaluating their own learning experience. Students have the opportunity to develop a creative and constructively critical approach towards innovation within their specialism, and the capacity to improve practice.

The Education Studies strand is common to all subject routes of the course and takes place both at the university and while on placement as a means of enabling students to develop practical competences supported by relevant, analytical skills.

Teaching under supervision, on placement, occupies approximately two-thirds of the course. The university works in partnership with schools and colleges to provide a high quality programme of support ensuring a sound relationship between theory and practice. There are two placements in two different schools/colleges with the opportunity to visit further schools/colleges as part of the 'Peer Observation' programme.

Professional Development is linked explicitly to all strands of the course and is designed to enable students to evaluate critically and reflect upon their learning in order to make improvements. Students are expected to gather and justify evidence of their achievements on a regular basis and, in the light of this, develop and implement improvement plans.

We aim to develop a research-led education, where practices of rigorous inquiry permeate every part of what we do.

Introduction

The Master of Architecture (M.Arch) RIBA Part II Course is a highly creative, research-led professional two year masters course rooted in Studio Laboratories driven by individual enquiry. The M.Arch course is prescribed by the ARB and validated by the RIBA, giving exemption from RIBA Part II.

We are based in the heart of the vibrant Faculty of Arts. Founded in 1859 as the School of Art, it offers an inspirational creative context for nurturing excellence in our work. Our distinct research-led approach filters through all aspects of the course, with rigorous inquiry fusing innovation, regulation and social commentary. This student focussed approach offers the opportunity for you to investigate your personal architectural agenda, developing your own critical position and design language prior to entry into the profession.

The Studio Laboratories are driven by tutors’ personal research agendas and all are actively engaged within this field of enquiry as academics or practitioners. The stimulating mix of practitioners and academics across the course builds conversations, with visiting lecturers and critics further feeding the dialogue. Recent visiting lecturers have included Neil Denari, Perry Kulper, Chris Thurlbourne, Michael Jemtrud, and our close links with practice ensure stimulating review panels. We place critical thought at our core and look forward to you joining the conversation.


Professional accreditation
Successful completion of the MArch carries ARB/RIBA Part 2 exemption. In addition, the University of Brighton offers the Management Law and Practice in Architecture postgraduate diploma (Part 3) as the final stage towards the professional title of architect.
As Part 1 exemption is not a prerequisite for Part 2, we are able to accept applications for the MArch programme from students who have a degree in architecture, or a closely related subject, but who do not have a Part 1 qualification. Students in this position are expected to take the Part 1 examination independently. All applicants ultimately seeking to register with the ARB are still required to have satisfied all Parts 1, 2, and 3.

Course structure
The first year in the MArch comprises the main taught input for technology, via precedent studies, lectures, case studies and seminars, and an in-depth research-based history and theory course. The main design project is undertaken in terms 2 and 3, building on research-based design work in term 1, where technology supports design ambitions to satisfy Part 2 criteria. In the second year students are increasingly expected to lead the studio culture with advanced research initiatives and design agendas. Part 2 criteria related to design, professional studies, technology and history and theory are all covered in this year.

Areas of study
Students work on a common, issue-based brief in different tutor groups for the entire academic year. Technology, professional studies and history and theory courses are delivered through lectures, seminars and workshops from academics, practitioners and specialists that support the development of design projects.

About this course

This course prepares graduates to teach in secondary schools. As well as gaining a PGCE, students are assessed against the national standards in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Teaching skills are developed through studio-based workshops, lectures, group discussions, tutorials and self-managed study while on school placement. Key aspects include: the role of art, craft and design in pupils' development; effective teaching, monitoring and assessment; and uses of literacy, numeracy and ICT (computer-aided design and image manipulation).

The opportunity to undertake masters level study within the course facilitates progression to an MA Education award after completion of the PGCE.

Professional accreditation

The course leads to the recommendation of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Course structure

The course comprises four strands: subject study/subject education, education studies, placements and professional development
The subject study/subject education strand builds upon existing subject expertise and provides students with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the specialist subject in the secondary school context, allowing them to formulate their own rationale for teaching. Students consider pedagogical issues within curriculum development, and the learning and teaching strategies pertinent to the specialist subject, regularly reflecting upon, analysing, recording and evaluating their own learning experience. Students have the opportunity to develop a creative and constructively critical approach towards innovation within their specialism, and the capacity to improve practice.

The Education Studies strand is common to all subject routes of the course and takes place both at the university and while on placement as a means of enabling students to develop practical competences supported by relevant, analytical skills.
Teaching under supervision, on placement, occupies approximately two-thirds of the course. The university works in partnership with schools and colleges to provide a high quality programme of support ensuring a sound relationship between theory and practice. There are two placements in two different schools/colleges with the opportunity to visit further schools/colleges as part of the 'Peer Observation' programme.

Professional Development is linked explicitly to all strands of the course and is designed to enable students to evaluate critically and reflect upon their learning in order to make improvements. Students are expected to gather and justify evidence of their achievements on a regular basis and, in the light of this, develop and implement improvement plans.

Bioscience is the collective term for the interrelated disciplines that deal with the structure, function and behaviour of living organisms and systems. The functioning of living systems is dependent on a complex hierarchy of interactions operating at many different levels of organisation from molecules to populations. The focus of study may vary from molecular and cellular biology, to whole organism biology and to ecology the biosphere and the environment. All branches of the biosciences share a common empirical scientific method, ie, they involve the experimental collection and interpretation of data and are philosophically linked via an acceptance of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. The MRes Bioscience places particular emphasis on understanding whole organism biology and/or the interactions between organisms and their environment.

Course structure

The MRes Bioscience is a research-based postgraduate course. The course is one-year full-time (two years part-time) and designed to provide graduates with the foundations for a career in research, industry, the public sector or academia. To be awarded the MRes students must obtain 180 M-level credits, 80 credits from taught and subject-specific modules and 100 credits through the completion of an extensive research project.

The MRes degree serves as a qualification in its own right for entry to a research career in industry, or as an enhanced route of entry to a PhD programme. The course provides high quality postgraduate training in the methods and practice of research not normally offered in conventional taught masters courses. The course develops the skills and the knowledge of graduates enabling them to carry out research in a manner that maximises their personal and professional potential and achieve the greatest benefits for the organisations employing them.
Throughout the course students have the opportunity, with guidance, to assess their suitability for a career in industry or further research training. The research project provides a real intellectual challenge and thus enables the student to demonstrate creativity and initiative and, where appropriate, provide a foundation for doctoral study. The course is structured to include a significant research component comprising at least 50 per cent of the working year and a series of supporting taught courses that make up the rest of the year.

The Master of Research is a qualification designed specifically to provide students with an initial training in research with the expectation that students will progress to undertake a research-based career in academia or industry. The course provides a flexible opportunity to obtain high-level research-based training combined with the development of academic and professional skills necessary for employment. The particular focus of the course is given by the students' choice of research project topic, which also determines the topics studied in the optional modules. Because of this the exact nature of the course is to some extent unique to each individual student.

The core research methodologies module at the heart of the MRes equips students with a fundamental understanding of the research process across a wide and dynamic range of disciplines.

The extended research project gives the opportunity for cutting edge research to be relevant area. Additional elements of the course aim to provide an integrated, employment-focused, research training programme for students wishing to develop their research skills within the biosciences. The choices of subject-specific modules available provide opportunities to study aspects of molecular biology, whole organism biology, genetics and microbiology.
