This course takes advantage of Ravensbourne's advanced technical resources and strong industry connections to enable you to work collaboratively across disciplines in 3D stereoscopic applied research and work with cutting-edge media technologies to develop and deliver immersive 3D media to new platforms.

The MA/MSc 3D Stereoscopic Media cuts through much of the hype and media glamour associated with 3D Stereoscopic to provide you with a grounded and deep exploration of the area. Working with industry professionals and specialist S3D technology and platform providers, the course encourages the examination of all sides of the Stereoscopic 3D story. This includes an examination of the perceptual science and human vision theory as well capture and display technologies looking at the biology, psychology and the technologies behind the current wave of innovation.

You will combine forces with students from a wide variety of creative and technical backgrounds through a series of collaborative projects to design and build rich 3D content, applying a core understanding of the nature of stereo perception in 3D output. Content will be repurposed for multiple platforms, from point-of-sale lenticular screens, 3D mobile devices, to 3D cinema, exploring how narrative and storytelling can be enhanced through stereoscopic production and delivery.

The digital production and post-production tools will enable you to deliver 3D projects through a full professional stereo pipeline, from capture to delivery. This course will share some technical delivery with the MA/MSc Broadcast Futures pathway, encouraging a collaboration of ideas to exploit these exciting new technologies.

The course covers the history of Stereoscopic 3D through to the roles played by modern content and technology companies. You will engage with production processes and workflows for multiple platforms including specialist content management, production and post-production techniques.

Study units

- Technology Issues
- Business and Innovation
- Research Process
- Concept and Prototyping
- Major project

You will acquire the research and development skills in the Research Process unit needed for building your understanding of stereoscopic media.

Within the Technology Issues unit, you will engage with three project cycles that allows you to explore emerging 3D technology first as a discipline group, then in collaboration with another discipline, and finally in an individual project, often in collaboration with industry, for example through a live brief, or using high end donated equipment.

In the Business and Innovation unit, you will develop an understanding of business and innovative practices in the creative industries to bring an entrepreneurial perspective.

The Major Project represents the culmination of your investigation and the final stage of the research strategy when you will conduct a 15-week project to build a prototype, test an emerging technology or generate a concept. This is a substantial piece of self-managed work that embodies the integration of theory and practice and is underpinned by advanced practice-based methodologies and processes.

Learning

You will receive regular support from tutors, peers and subject-specific group tutorials as part of an ongoing critical dialogue to help create a professional and critical understanding of your creative process.

Programme Aims

All postgraduate courses at Ravensbourne provide students with the opportunity to develop advanced skills in the conceptualisation and practical realisation of innovative creative projects in their discipline area and provide them with the entrepreneurial skills to realise their commercial potential. These courses share the following common aims:

- to develop advanced creative practitioners with the potential to originate, innovate or influence practice in their discipline area;

- to equip students with a comprehensive understanding of the core principles and technology underpinning their creative project and the theoretical frameworks within which to locate it;

- to develop students’ skills in independent learning, self-reflection and research skills necessary to sustain advanced creative practice and scholarship;

- to offer a stimulating environment for postgraduate students which is both supportive and flexible in relation to their learning needs and a creative space in which to incubate their ideas.

The ICAEW's exams consist of three levels: Certificate, Professional and Advanced Levels. Through our partnership with ICAEW, completion of our MSc programme can achieve exemptions from all Professional Level papers (ICAEW do not award exemptions for Advanced Level papers). Additionally students will be prepared for, and if successful in gaining credit for the relevant Professional Level modules, be entered into, the three ICAEW Advanced Level papers. Successful MSc graduates can impress potential employers by being fully exam qualified on completing the MSc and ICAEW exams. ICAEW members can go on to work in accounting, financial services and business management and many FTSE quoted company directors are ICAEW members.

It is advantageous, but not essential, to have completed the six ICAEW Certificate Level (CFAB) exams on entry to the programme or to have earned ICAEW credit for prior learning for those papers. Students who have not completed CFAB will need to do so (or be awarded exemptions for prior learning) prior to sitting the ICAEW Advanced Level Case Study exam.

Course Detail

- Description

The Addiction Studies course is designed for students and professionals interested in the conceptualisation, treatment and prevention of addictive behaviours. It provides a widely recognised qualification with an integrated multi-disciplinary teaching and learning approach to the problems of use, dependence on alcohol, nicotine and other psychoactive drugs, and other addictive behaviours.

The course recognises that its students come from a variety of backgrounds with the goal of extending their theoretical knowledge and practical skills beyond those related to the subjects that they studied at undergraduate level. For example, a nurse or youth counsellor may wish to increase their knowledge of molecular biology or psychopharmacology, while psychology graduates may wish to increase their knowledge and familiarity with treatment options. It is for this reason that our course starts with introductory modules that ensure all students, regardless of their background, have a basic understanding of the core concepts that underlie the clinical, scientific and public health aspects of addiction before they embark on individual research and a more rigorous exploration of these areas.

- Course purpose

The purpose of the course is therefore to equip graduates, clinicians and others for the next stage of their career within the field of addictions.

- Course format and assessment

MSc and PGCert students will be taught through a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials. For a full list of required and optional modules, time spent on study and assessment criteria please see the course details section of our website http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught-courses/addiction-studies-msc-pg-cert.aspx

Students starting PG Dip courses in September 2017 will receive a NHS Tuition Fee Bursary to cover the full tuition fees for the duration of their course.

Who is it for?

This course is for students who already have a degree in any subject and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be fulfilled by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession.

City is the first institution to offer an MSc of this kind, crossing both the adult and mental health nursing specialisms. The course was designed to meet the need of the healthcare sector and the ambitions of many nurses to be able to fully support their patients, both physically and mentally.

Objectives

The MSc in Adult and Mental Health Nursing prepares you for a rewarding career at the forefront of modern healthcare. You will graduate as a nurse eligible to register with the NMC as an adult and mental health nurse, leaving you equipped to support the delivery of quality healthcare in a contemporary health service.

Mental illness has a huge impact on the physical health of an individual. People with mental health conditions are at a higher risk of experiencing physical health problems, such as diabetes and heart conditions. In addition, people with long-term physical health conditions are more likely to suffer from a mental health issue, particularly depression. There is a need to develop a nursing workforce that is fit for the current demands of healthcare in the UK.

This Masters programme, where you will be eligible to apply for registration with the NMC as a registered nurse in the mental health and adult fields of nursing, will provide you with the opportunity to meet this demand.

Placements

You will spend around 50% of your time on clinical placements. Your practice experience will take place in a variety of settings such as specialist units, hospital wards and primary care settings such as Health Centres and patients/service users’ homes.

Most placements are within our 'community of practice', a partnership of healthcare providers within North East London - allowing you to become familiar with the needs of the local community and its healthcare providers.

Academic facilities

The Clinical Skills Centre at City offers excellent facilities for you to rehearse practical caring skills prior to your practice placement. You will have access to a simulated six-bed high-dependency unit (HDU) with realistic equipment including piped oxygen, call bells, medicines and emergency equipment. In addition, medium-fidelity simulators and laboratories, including a biology laboratory, allow you to rehearse skills in preparation for practice in a range of placements, including clinics and people's homes.

The School of Health Sciences is one of the first health schools in the UK to open a Technology Enabled Care Studio - City TECS. City TECS is specially designed studio flat at our Northampton Square campus, fully equipped with the latest telehealth and telecare technologies providing you with the unique opportunity to learn how to use the latest and future healthcare technologies while you study.

Teaching and learning

The teaching on the MSc course includes lecture, seminars, laboratory practicals, enquiry-based learning, practice experience, simulated practice, personal and professional development groups, meetings and online activities.

Assessment

Assessments are varied to meet the practice and academic challenges of the MSc, while recognising the need for motivating, realistic and relevant activity. The practice element is assessed by the development of a record of achievement in practice and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations. Modules are also assessed through essays, seminars or presentations.

As part of the MSc you are expected to complete a dissertation, this will involve a systematic literature review of integrated practice, which is the foundation of this programme and the future of contemporary nursing practice.

Your final degree classification is calculated from the first, second and final years.

Modules

You are given the opportunity to combine theoretical study with clinical experience.

At City, you will gain experience of care delivery across a range of settings and environments.

Practice experience within London will give you a unique opportunity to provide culturally sensitive care within a multicultural and multi-faith community, which reflects a diverse socioeconomic population. Your practice experience will take place in a variety of settings, such as acute hospital units and service users’ own homes.

To pass each Part you must successfully complete both the theoretical and practice elements of the programme by the end of the part (NMC 2010). For a detailed breakdown of each module, please see the website: http://www.city.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/adult-mental-health-nursing-pre-registration

Career prospects

Successful graduates will have an internationally recognised qualification and will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This course will accelerate your career progression and open up a variety of fascinating career opportunities across both adult and mental health fields of practice.

This MSc ideally positions you to pursue an accelerated career pathway and become a future leader, clinical expert or researcher within the nursing profession.

Your personal career aspirations can be discussed during your programme with your personal tutor and you may also seek help and guidance from the Careers Service.

You will also be given opportunities to prepare for interviews and develop Personal Development Plans during the programme.

Other admission requirements
