Welcome from the

Acting Vice-Chancellor I hope that you will enjoy reading this prospectus and finding out more about the University of Chichester. Having participated in the annual graduation ceremonies, I was hugely impressed once more, as I watched our students receive their degrees, by the wonderful community that we have at this University; a community renowned for its friendliness and its mutual support. I have been reading the feedback we received from our students in the 2009 National Student Survey. One of them captured the mood I witnessed at the graduations, and summed up the feedback to the survey from many of the students, when she wrote about her experience here: ‘Life changing. I gained inspiration. A love for new things. Confidence. Self-belief.’ At the University of Chichester we take great pride in the rich learning experience we offer our students. This is also a place where supporting our students as they leave us to secure fulfilling jobs that use their graduate skills is enormously important to us. We are, therefore, very proud that the latest national data shows that over 94 per cent of our students were in employment/further study within six months of graduation. I hope you will come and find out more about us and experience our community for yourself. You will be made very welcome.

Professor Clive Behagg Acting Vice-Chancellor

Ranked in the top ten in England Over 94% of graduates from Chichester are in employment or further study, six months after graduating making us the best on the south coast and in the top ten in England. Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) 2009

General Open Days You are always welcome to visit the University of Chichester to help you make your choice and we aim to make your visit useful and enjoyable. Open Days are an excellent opportunity to see everything the University has to offer. They are informal days that include guided tours of each campus and a free bus service, taking visitors between campuses. All our courses are represented, so it is easy to talk to tutors and students. Many academic areas also put on additional presentations and displays. Open Days require advance booking, and you can do this on our website at www.chiuni.ac.uk/opendays

Mature Students’ Evenings Our University life is enriched by having students from a wide variety of backgrounds and we welcome applications from mature students. During the year we run advice evenings for those who have been out of education for some time or are without formal qualifications. Many of our subject areas are represented along with specialists in Student Support and Finance. For more information please visit our website www.chi.ac.uk/info/ maturestudentseve.cfm

Campus Tours Campus Tours are available throughout the year and are particularly useful if you cannot visit on a main open day.

Schools and Colleges Liaison Here at the University of Chichester we understand the challenges facing students and parents when considering higher education. The considerable choice of institutions and recent increases in tuition fees makes informing students even more important. This is why we support schools and colleges so extensively in career enrichment activities, helping to make the transition between school/college life and university life as smooth as possible for students. We would, therefore, like to encourage schools and colleges to use the University of Chichester as part of their support group in educating students about higher education. We are very happy to help in any of the following ways: • • • • •

Exhibitions and Careers Fairs Subject Specific Talks Taster Days Residencies Information Events for Careers Advisers

“Everyone was so friendly” “My family and I came along to one of the University’s open days, and it was a great opportunity to get a feel for the place and meet the students and staff. Everyone was so friendly and you really feel part of everything from the very beginning” Phil Webber, BSc (Hons) Coaching Science

The

Chichester

Experience

We know you have a hugely important decision to make when choosing which university will be right for you. In the next few pages we would like to try and give you a taste of Chichester and what makes us stand out from the rest. We have been providing Higher Education since 1839 and our students have again ranked us as the best modern university in the UK for student satisfaction.


11

What makes us special There is something special about studying at the University of Chichester. It’s unlike any other university you are likely to visit. We don’t do gimmicks but we do provide our students with a life-enhancing experience. With a higher education heritage dating back to 1839, we officially became a university in 2005 and offer over 300 stimulating and interesting courses from foundation level through to BA, MA and PhD in a range of subjects from Business, Dance and Drama, through to Events Management, Musical Theatre, Psychology and Sports Sciences. We can guarantee you will not just be a face in a crowd when you come to study here – tutors will know your name, you will quickly feel part of the university life and get to know many new people.

“We want you to succeed but at the same time have a great experience” We don’t have large lecture theatres – there is a more intimate feel of teaching and learning at Chichester with an emphasis on students working in smaller groups. There is a very strong sense of community here and, because we are small, there is a very friendly feel to the campus. At Chichester we want you to succeed but at the same time have a great experience. Don’t just take our word for it; yearon-year we rank highly in higher education league tables and student surveys. Our students have consistently rated us one of the best modern universities in the UK for satisfaction with their course (National Student Survey 2008 and 2009). We were rated as ‘outstanding’ in a national survey and in the top 3 with Oxford and Cambridge universities for our ‘personal relationship with teaching staff’ in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2009. Our campus is renowned for its friendliness. This is reflected by the student drop-out rate which is around half of the expected level (Sunday Times, 2008). But as well as having a good time with supportive staff you will have a very good chance of successfully completing your studies, as nine out of 10 of our students do so – The Times University Guide 2010.

“It is well chilled out here” “It is great to come to Chichester from London. There is a totally different atmosphere here and it is well chilled out. It is nice to be close to the seaside where you can find real peace and quiet with no congestion. When I first came here, everyone was really excited and wanted to engage in conversation, you get to know everyone very quickly” Serana Khoury, BA (Hons) Media Studies/ Media Production

Bognor Regis Campus Situated just five minutes from the sea the Bognor Regis campus boasts beautiful Georgian architecture including three grand mansion houses, St Michael’s, the Dome and Mordington House. The campus is set for major redevelopment during 2010-11. £8m is been invested to transform the Dome into a vibrant business and research centre and create a state-of-the-art learning and resource centre. Students’ Union Bar The MII Bar opened in 2007 and is a very popular place for students to chill out. A number of different social events are hosted throughout the week including karaoke, club nights, quiz nights and live music.

There is an inter-campus bus if you wish to travel between campuses. The journey takes approximately 20 minutes and costs £1 each way.

25

Success at Chichester Novel News Jane Rusbridge, an associate lecturer in English at the university, has had her debut novel The Devil’s Music published. Jane didn’t start writing until she began studying for an English degree at Chichester when her youngest child started school and when the opportunity to study part-time made it easier to juggle work and family commitments. She went on to win the University’s Philip Lebrun Prize for creative writing as well as the Lord Wolfenden Prize for academic excellence. Over the past 10 years Jane has had short stories and poems published and won or been placed in several national and international competitions. Isabel Ashdown is an MA Creative Writing student who has also launched her debut novel Glasshopper. An extract won the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition and was described by judges John Mortimer and Fay Weldon as ‘magnificent’. Dr Elizabeth Pike, a senior lecturer in Sport Development has co-authored the first ever UK edition of the highly regarded ‘Sports in Society: Issues and Controversies’ book. Dr Pike co-authored the book with Jay Coakley, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, USA. The book is aimed at a UK audience which makes it essential reading for students in this subject area as well as for professionals working within the sports sector. Could University undergraduate Aaron Singleton Smith’s new series of sci-fi books be the next Harry Potter? Aaron’s debut novel The 7 Worlds Part 1: Earth A Splinter of Faith has been published. The book is a series of fantasy stories for young readers. Aaron is currently studying for a BA Honours in Performing Arts and Media.

Fairtrade Status The University has been officially awarded Fairtrade status. Becoming a Fairtrade University was the joint achievement of staff and the students’ union and demonstrates that Chichester is committed to making sure its campus is more ethical by promoting and raising awareness and availability of products with the FAIRTRADE Mark.

£8 million boost for Bognor Over £8 million has been awarded to the University to kick-start the transformation of its Bognor Regis Campus in the first stage of a major re-development programme over the next 10 years. The funds will go towards a major internal refurbishment of The Dome, which dates back to the 1780s and is one of the most historic buildings in Bognor Regis. The building will become an iconic centre for business. The refurbished Dome will be home to a café, wi-fi facilities, informal and formal meeting spaces and a lecture theatre. The building will be accessible to the community and a major support to business. In addition, eight enterprise incubator units will be created on the campus to develop new high-value businesses. The funding will also contribute to a new state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centre and Student Support Facility.

New York Premiere for Charlotte Foundation Degree Musical Theatre student Charlotte Fellows enjoyed an honour many aspiring actresses can only dream of when she attended the premiere of her own film in the Big Apple - New York. Charlotte stars in the comedy horror flick Mark Macready and the Archangel Murders which was shown at the NY film festival Zero.

Sporting Success Sports student Mel Curson was selected to play for the prestigious British Universities Netball Team, and is only the third Chichester student ever to have been selected for this elite squad. Mel is on the BA (Hons) Sports Development degree course at Chichester. Bobbie Coduri, an Adventure Education student, won the women’s event at the Kuk Sool Won martial arts 2009 European Championship. Bobbie has been involved in the sport of Kuk Sool Won for the last 12 years, reaching the level of Second Dahn Black Belt. As a result of winning the European Championship she has now been promoted to Third Dahn Black Belt.

Karate World Championships Michael Prior a second year BA (Hons) Physical Education & Teaching student has been selected to represent GB at the Karate World Championships in Portugal in April 2010.

CRY centre The University has become the Southern Centre for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). It will be working with schools and colleges to promote and protect the cardiac health of the young by establishing good practice and screening facilities devoted to significantly reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death throughout the UK.

How to apply for University-owned Accommodation We are able to accommodate many of our first year students in our accommodation. Rooms are allocated in line with the University’s Accommodation Allocation policy, which is available to view on the Accommodation website www.chi.ac.uk/accomm/ AccommodationDownloads.cfm It is important to submit your application for on-campus accommodation as soon as possible after the Portal opens (more details of the date etc. are available on the Accommodation website). All students holding a ‘Firm’ offer for September 2011, putting Chichester as ‘first choice’, will be sent log-in details and information about how to apply for accommodation in May 2011. (Please note: Students that live within certain local postcodes – i.e. those that will have less than a 30 minutes (approx) commute to the two campuses will not be eligible for accommodation). At that time you will be notified of the date the accommodation application process will go ‘live on line’. It is then your responsibility to apply as quickly as possible after this time in order to increase your chances of being allocated a room and your preferred accommodation option. Whilst we endeavour to meet students’ requests, we cannot guarantee accommodation, a specific type of accommodation or a particular campus. (Please be aware that we do not allow resident students to keep cars on either campus due to a shortage of parking spaces, however there is a bus service between campuses.)

You would be treated as a member of the family, eating together and sharing common living space. • Private home accommodation – this means living in someone’s home but on a more independent basis – usually under a self-catered arrangement. • Renting – sharing a student flat or house with friends or fellow students.

Please contact the Accommodation Office for the current Studentpad password, which is a database holding the information of all private properties and host family facilities that have been accredited by the Accommodation Office and the local Environmental Health Officer.

University of Chichester

Students’ Union We are an organisation run by students for students. Our core functions are to defend, extend and promote student rights. We are affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS) and gain support for local, regional and national campaigning. Our main objective is to support our members through academic representation and to campaign on behalf of their needs. This is achieved in many ways, for example, through course representation, academic standards or appeals processes. As a Union we also support student welfare issues and have recently run campaigns such as ‘Drink Aware’ and ‘Go Green Week’. We can also point you in the right direction for any further help and guidance you may need. There are plenty of ways to get involved with your Union. You could join the entertainments committee, get a paid job in the bars or shop, join the campaigns team, write for our magazine ‘Exploded’ or be elected to lead the Union, to name but a few.

The Executive Committee The executive committee is made up of eleven students, who are still studying, plus the vice president and president of the Union. All positions are elected and they then lead the Students’ Union (SU) for a year. These are the people you have at your disposal to help you through your time at University.

Sports Clubs and Societies All clubs and societies are student run. The sports federation looks after the sports clubs and the vice president of the SU looks after societies. The sports federation has a range of teams for you to join. Anything from football and rugby to cheerleading and ultimate frisbee! We have over 20 sports teams competing on Wednesdays against other universities and we also have recreational sports for those who aren’t so competitive! The sports federation also hosts sports RAG (Raising and Giving) charity events such as fancy dress dodge ball tournaments. There are a wide variety of societies for you to join. These include Poker, Afro-Caribbean, LGBT, Dance, Christian Union and many more. Members of societies meet up regularly and take part in different activities, some even run their own trips away and events in our bars!

Exploded Magazine 2009 saw the release of our new magazine entitled ‘Exploded’. Exploded is a comprehensive magazine with input from the students, the Students’ Union, University and local community. It includes articles covering Union news, student life, sports and activities, community, travel, media reviews, the arts, event photos and features.

Raising And Giving (RAG) Charity Events Each year we have a nominated charity, which we focus our fundraising activity on. We have a number of weird and wonderful events that everyone can get involved in, such as the famous Bognor RAG Race, a day of fun in fancy dress, and also RAGfest, an all-day music festival.

Advice and Representation We have a member of staff dedicated to ensuring that you have a great learning experience whilst you are studying at Chichester. The Representation and Democracy Co-ordinator is there to provide support and advise on any problems you might have. They are also responsible for developing and co-ordinating the course representative system; course reps are students who get elected to voice the opinions of the students on their course to the University. The Students’ Union Officers also provide representation at the highest level within the University committee structure.

SEMAL (School of Enterprise, Management and Leadership) Ranked the best modern university in the UK for student experience The Complete University Guide 2010

BA (Hons) undergraduate degree programmes Our School of Enterprise, Management and Leadership offers you a wide range of undergraduate honours degree programmes in business and management related subject areas. Honours degrees can be studied in: • Accounting and Finance • Business Studies • Events Management • Human Resource Management • IT Management for Business • Marketing • Tourism Management Please see subject specific courses pages starting on page 46 for further information. In addition, it is possible to undertake a joint honours route across areas within the School’s degree portfolio (e.g. BA (Hons) Events Management and Marketing). Whilst the scope of honours programmes available within the school offers you a wide choice of specialist subject areas, all of our degree routes share a number of common features. Central to our provision is the focus on the student learning experience. This is reflected in our approach to learning, assessment and work-based opportunities. Our workshop approach to learning We believe that in a University environment a ‘hands-on’, interactive and participative approach to learning

with modest group sizes is the most effective way to learn and develop the types of skills that employers look for in graduates. Our business and management focused degree routes concentrate primarily on working with our students in a small group workshop environment. In practice this means that when studying a module with us there will usually be a weekly workshop of approximately 2.5 to 3 hours that will be facilitated by one of the tutors. Group sizes will typically be about 20-25 students. At the end of the workshop students are normally tasked to undertake intersession work that then feeds into the next workshop. This approach contrasts markedly with most universities where a significant element of their teaching takes place through a more traditional lecture environment. Such a format normally involves large group lectures, often with well in excess of 100 students being lectured to by a tutor. Our approach encourages students to be proactive and offers an environment that is well suited to enabling students to share their thinking and explore different ideas. Our approach to assessment Our approach to assessment reflects our aim of preparing students for the world of work. We adopt a wide range of imaginative and innovative assessment strategies, delivered at an appropriate level, as you progress through your programme. Typically the subject based assessments are designed to enable you to demonstrate the skills and techniques that reflect how these techniques would be applied in the world of work. Our courses adopt a range of assessment styles that include: presentations; report writing; client based project work; time

limited assessment; group work; essays; reflective learning logs etc. Most modules will include more than one assessment type. In addition to the business and management subject related assessments there will also be assessment tasks that are specifically designed to enable you to focus and reflect upon your own personal development. Work-based opportunities Across our degree programmes there is a range of work-based opportunities available. These can vary between courses to reflect the context of a specific programme, but the following are representative of the type of engagement that as one of our students you will be involved with: • Client based final year management projects • 48-week work placements (if taking one of our four year professional placement degree routes) • 10-week work placements • Events management provision • Client IT systems development projects New Accommodation The School of Enterprise, Management and Leadership will move into stunning new facilities in 2011. The University is investing £8m refurbishing The Dome, a grade 1 listed Georgian building which will provide a home for the School at the heart of the campus.

3Fall Dance Company Touring company Our 3rd Year Dance Company, 3Fall, is a touring company which gives dance students a taste of what it would be like to be in a professional company. It offers performances and workshops in theatres, colleges and schools around the UK. Students audition to be part of the company and following an intensive rehearsal period, the company tours in the spring of each year. The current repertoire includes four new works by renowned artists Thomas Kampe; Lila Dance Company; Detta Howe (Ginger Dance Company) and Dale Thompson (Nikolais Dance Theatre) together with new student works. Past choreographers have included Colin Poole, Gary Lambert (both ex-Rambert Dance C) Stuart Waters (Motion House and Bare Bones), Martin Lawrence (Richard Alston), Filip Van Huffel (Retina Dance Company) and Lea Anderson of the Cholmondeleys.

The workshops explore the current repertoire as well as delivering technique classes and develop the students skills in choreography and teaching. Previous performance venues have included The Point, Eastleigh and schools in the West Sussex, Hampshire area. Giving students touring experience also means travelling further afield and past companies have performed and toured to Colchester, Huddersfield, Kent and Oxford. Ex-members of 3Fall Dance Company have gone on to become founder members of Lila Dance, work with choreographers such as Charles Linehan and Scott Clark, have set up Udifydance Company and become part of the mapdance company at the University.

Adventure Education BA (Hons) Course Information The adventure environment is both complex and dynamic. Whether it is the focus of individual employment, management development or one of a whole host of other purposes that recognise its value, it must be carefully constructed. If you are one of the increasing number of individuals who enjoy adventurous activities, you will probably have wondered why you are attracted to them.

Drama* BA (Hons) Course Information BA (Hons) Drama (in partnership with the Chichester Festival Theatre) is a programme designed for theatre makers who have a particular interest in directing and producing theatre. This exciting and original undergraduate programme complements our Performing Arts (Theatre Performance) degree which has an emphasis on the Performer-Maker. Both programmes recognise the intrinsic value of project-based learning: where ideas and concepts are understood in direct relation to the business of making theatre. Specific to the Drama programme, we are privileged to have the Chichester Festival Theatre as a major learning partner to provide a crucial creative environment and vocational template to explore the key decisions that go into directing and producing theatre. Extensive textual analysis (you will read lots of plays!); context (historical, political and social); the demands of audience; specific performance skills; concepts of space and design, funding and budgeting, all become essential parts of the learning and creative process, made relevant by examining how these things are explored in a professional theatre context. Throughout the programme, there are constant opportunities to articulate creative ideas through directing and contributing (through performing) to others’ directing exercises; there will be opportunities to learn from leading theatre directors and actors, as well as other theatre professionals, about the demands of the directing and producing process and, in level three of the programme, students will be offered significant opportunities to develop advanced directorial practice that will bring them into direct contact with theatre professionals.

Indicative Course Content Each of the three levels of the programme marks a significant step towards managing the creative theatre process.

*subject to approval

Level One: Understanding Context In a highly original slant to undergraduate study, students will develop an holistic approach to understanding theatre, combining skills application, theoretical ideas, technical knowledge and creative exploration in a series of contained projects, each one predicated on a key thematic set of texts. Each project will have a tailor-made structure and content dependent on the critical and creative needs of the defined group of texts: similar to the specific and holistic nature of creating theatre. Level Two: Understanding Application Students will be introduced to a range of methodologies for the making of theatre: they will shadow key professionals; take part (through performance) in productions, where the main focus will be directorial practice; they will learn about how the director contributes to the key parameters of design, dramaturgy (including new writing), audience development, funding and education. Level Three: Application Students will engage in extended projects that represent realistic professional conditions and directorial and managerial contexts. Exercises include: a dissertation; an extended directing exercise; a series of laboratory creative projects (solo performance, devised text; design) and a series of professional development exercises.

Why this Course? • Opportunity to study in a ‘theatre city’, in close association with the Chichester Festival Theatre • Working within a large and vibrant theatre community, with actors, dancers and musicians all working in close proximity, providing many opportunities to perform and get involved • Rigorous academic approach to the subject, designed to be applied to real vocational contexts (ie Literary Management) • The chance to work on new and established plays and in relation to working playwrights

Theatre Link “Chichester Festival Theatre is delighted to be working so closely with the University of Chichester in the delivery of its Drama degree: a programme which utilises the living context in which theatre is made” Jonathan Church, Artistic Director, Chichester Festival Theatre

Performing Arts BA (Hons) Performing Arts

(Theatre Performance); (Theatre Performance and Dance) (Theatre Performance and Music)

Course Information Are you driven by a passion to create innovative theatre? Are you a performer who wishes to challenge expectations? Are you a team player capable of producing innovative, dynamic and engaging work? Can you rise to the challenge of being the future of British theatre? Performing Arts (Theatre Performance) is an established course, designed for students who see their own processes of creating original theatre as a dynamic and empowering starting point for a career as a theatre maker. Performing Arts offers two additional self-contained routes, Theatre Performance and Dance and Theatre Performance and Music, which adopt the core of the Theatre Performance route, but for students with specialist interests in either music or contemporary dance. The three different routes are designed to emphasise our commitment to theatre as a cross disciplinary process and to empower musicians/singers, dancers, actors and theatre makers, who have a particular interest in composition, to come together in the spirit of exploration. Of primary importance, for all students taking Performing Arts, is the notion of artist as an engaged communicator, prepared to take responsibility for the creative process and the implications of performance. The focus, therefore, is on new work, with a curriculum emphasising group and teamwork, within a vocational context that prepares you for a career as a creative artist. With this in mind, you will have the opportunity to explore performance in a variety of contexts and settings, using a wide range of theatrical and non-theatrical environments.

Indicative Course Content There are four groups of modules contributing to a focused and holistic training in theatre making. Dance and Music students will be encouraged to use their particular specialism alongside – and as an integral part of – generic theatre work: • Critical and Contextual Studies: giving academic foundation to the processes of making theatre

• Skills Development: training and awareness of skills for making and performing theatre • Production and Specialist Studies: performance projects that can inspire and challenge you towards making innovative theatre • Professional Development: providing insight into theatre making in an applied and vocational context

Theatre Performance Route If you are on the Theatre Performance route, you will have further classes in acting and devising, as well as writing for performance. A central focus of the route is two major productions at level two that will gear you towards major performance work in your final year. Theatre Performance and Dance Route If you choose the Theatre and Dance route, you will have further classes in performance technique, improvisation and choreography; one of the level two productions will be supplanted with a Dance Theatre production. Theatre Performance and Music Route Within the Theatre and Music route, you will have further classes in performance technique (singing or/and your chosen instrument), improvisation and composition; one of the level two productions will be supplanted with a theatre production that emphasises music.

Why this Course? • Create new theatre in a dynamic ‘theatre city’ • Work in newly-built, state-of-the-art theatre and studios, equipped with the latest technology • Work with highly motivated, dedicated professional staff • Challenge the cultural and social understanding of the world we live in through performance practice • Elect modules that drive towards clear vocational outcomes as practising theatre makers • Develop skills in music or dance alongside theatre performance

Psychology BSc (Hons) Course Information Psychology is the scientific study of experience and behaviour – why we act the way we do, how we interact with other people and the emotional significance we attach to this. Psychological studies have gained increasing importance across a wide range of activities, including human resources, education, sport, social care and the creative industries.

Indicative Course Content This programme is based upon the requirements of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and will enable you to gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, behaviour and experience, and of the complex interactions between those. The programme is designed to take you from an analysis of everyday experience and attendant important feelings and behaviours in level 1, through core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to those behaviours and others in level 2, to an appreciation and understanding of contexts in which psychology can be applied, and professional psychologists work in level 3. Practical investigations and experiments are used as a foundation for understanding and explanation, and both quantitative and qualitative research methods are introduced and developed. Core discipline knowledge in level 2 covers: • Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology • Developmental Psychology • Individual Differences • Social Psychology • Biological Psychology In addition, you will be introduced to different perspectives on psychology in level 1, and take skills modules to help you learn about and study psychology. In level 3 you will undertake a research investigation into a particular aspect of psychology, leading to a dissertation and poster presentation of their findings. A project management and presentation skills module will introduce you to skills relevant to conducting your investigation and that are also useful in future employment.

Modules on working life and health/lifestyle contexts within which many professional psychologists work are presented in level 3. There will also be opportunities for you to select optional modules relevant to a range of disciplines, for example sports, business, marketing, education, and the creative arts.

Why this Course? • A practical focus to the application of psychology to real world situations • The opportunity to undertake your own research in an area of interest to you in Year 3 • Staff with experience in a range of disciplines who are highly qualified and enthusiastic about their work • A supportive learning environment A first degree in psychology accredited by the British Psychological Society provides a foundation for you to progress to specialist areas of psychology, and subsequent status as a Chartered Psychologist. There are currently 10 professional Divisions within the BPS, including Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Sport and Exercise Psychology. Whilst nationally, less than one psychology graduate in every five ultimately takes up work as a professional psychologist, psychology provides a good insight into human behaviour that equips graduates with the skills that enable them to work in a wide range of fields. The University will be applying for accreditation for its Psychology course from the British Psychological Society to provide Graduate Basis for Chartership.

Careers You will initially study at an introductory level, and thus it is not a requirement to have studied psychology at ‘A’ level.’ As well as providing a sound basis for work as a professional psychologist, a psychology degree at the University of Chichester would facilitate entry into the following careers: • Industry • Media • Teaching • Work with children, adults and families • IT • Computing • Marketing • Civil Service

Enjoying a strong national and international reputation, the University has a long and distinguished record in training teachers dating back to 1839. The majority of the programmes are run at our Bognor Regis Campus; the BA (Hons) Physical Education and Teaching course is based at the Bishop Otter Campus in Chichester. Diversity in the Teaching Profession We are committed to supporting the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) to increase the diversity of the routes into teaching and to widen participation from those groups who are currently underrepresented in the teaching profession. We, therefore, particularly welcome and encourage applications from minority ethnic groups and from men.

Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) The GTP offers a route for graduates to qualify as a teacher through employment within a school. Successful completion of the programme will enable you to be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). For general information about the GTP consult the TDA website www.teach.gov.uk Continuing Professional Development We offer a wide range of programmes, courses and activities for qualified teachers and the wider education workforce to enable you to enhance your professional practice and broaden your knowledge about contemporary issues whilst gaining accreditation in a range of qualifications, from TDA endorsed Foundation Degree through to Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or a full Master’s qualification. Our MA (Education) now offers three pathways (Leadership and Management, Inclusion and Curriculum) with a choice of modules. We also offer an MA (Mathematics Education). The University is also a TDA approved provider for the new SENCO qualification.

Our growing national and international portfolio enables the University to offer short courses, consultancy, project management, research and evaluation work to support all education professionals. We can deliver customised packages in different locations, according to your needs. Conferences with seminars and workshops are also a popular feature of our provision. We have developed a range of strategic partnerships, locally, nationally and internationally to support and endorse our work.

The Mathematics Centre main aims • Increase confidence in the mathematical capabilities of pupils, students, teachers and users (of mathematics); • Promote and support an approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics which emphasises the importance of independent thinking, challenge, discussion, problem solving; • Provide a centre for the professional development for all those involved in mathematics education and contribute towards the development of networks of practitioners; • Provide a focal point for new and ongoing curriculum development and research in mathematics education to ensure its continuing relevance and effectiveness, particularly with reference to the role and use of new technologies; • Establish and promote collaboration between industry, commerce and education to meet the aims of the government’s STEM agenda; • To promote a better understanding by the public at large and parents in particular of the nature and benefits of effective mathematics education.

Centre

Many University of Chichester alumni, having completed their initial teacher education, become involved in the Centre’s projects and courses, with a healthy proportion proceeding onto the MA (Mathematics Education) programme at some time during their teaching careers. The Centre operates as a focal point (both virtual and physical) for local authorities, schools and individual colleagues as a place of constant support within a mathematics education community which can appear to be rapidly changing. It is able to respond to initiatives objectively and its clear mission allows it to support those with whom it collaborates to adopt a similar approach. Consequently the Centre has a well-developed set of tools to support the review of programmes of educational change by practitioners, with a view to supporting the systematic evaluation at classroom, school and local authority level. A significant element of our work has involved senior leaders to enable such approaches to be embedded in practice. Our staff work with and advise agencies such as Local Authorities, NCETM, TDA, BECTa and the mathematics subject associations as well as working closely with schools on a range of school-based projects designed to improve learning, teaching and management of mathematics.

Recent projects • Lead role in the EU Comenius funded project EdUmatics with nineteen European partners to develop teachers’ classroom uses of technology in secondary mathematics • European research evaluation of TI Nspire Navigator wireless handheld technology in secondary classrooms • Development of a range of mathematics programmes for Teachers’ TV and the BBC • Using flexible learning approaches for the continuing professional development of teachers leading to a Master’s Degree in Mathematics Education • Local Authority projects concerned with integrating new curricula, formative assessment, 14-19 mathematics and transition issues • Consultancy and professional development workshops for international organisations such as the Aga Khan Academies Unit and AIMGSEC

Postgraduate Research In addition to our undergraduate and taught programmes at the University we offer postgraduate research programmes in a number of areas. Undertaking a programme of postgraduate research provides students with a great opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in a subject area which they are passionate about. Together with an experienced supervisory team they can define their own programme of study as well as develop generic and transferable skills that equip them for future careers in research and beyond. The quality of research at the University of Chichester, the majority rated in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 as being ‘internationally recognised or internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour’ has led to it being lauded as one of only a handful of ‘rising stars’ due its significant rise up the league tables published by the Times Higher.

The University welcomes postgraduate students in the following areas of study: • Sports Sciences, Physical Education and Sports-Related Studies • English Language, Literature and Creative Writing • Theology • History • Dance and Performing Arts • Social Policy The University offers a number of bursaries to postgraduate students and details can be provided by the Research and Employer Engagement Office. www.research@chi.ac.uk

Research Staff At Chichester the majority of staff are involved in research and scholarship in order to underpin the high quality teaching of the University’s courses. Academic staff are involved in consultancy with private and public sector organisations, work with professional associations, acting as advisers on government bodies, conducting research, and work in collaboration with academics at home and abroad. A large number of staff are available to supervise students who wish to pursue MPhil or PhD awards by research. University research staff are well connected with colleagues working in other universities in this country and abroad, and many are involved in collaborative projects with staff in other institutions. All staff who act as research supervisors have strong publications records and extensive academic experience; all research supervisors also receive regular training and updating for the role.

Knowledge and ideas History in the Public Space How does the public view the history of Chichester? More specifically, what do people think and remember about their experiences of walking on the city walls? These are the questions that researchers Dr Hugo Frey (Head of History) and Dr Katherine Milcoy (Project Researcher) will be asking in their extended analysis of how people remember and recollect the much treasured walls and their walkways. This funded research has been contracted to the University by Chichester District Council as part of their Heritage Lottery Grant celebration of Chichester being a walled city. The research develops from a commitment to linking all students to the many heritage institutions and businesses that are located in West Sussex. For example, History students access the impressive resources of the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum of Historic Buildings. All students on the BA History degree can take the optional work placement module co-ordinated and supported by Dr Mandy Richardson (Senior Lecturer in History). In 2009-10, the department will be sending students to Arundel Castle, Bignor Roman Villa, Butser Ancient Farm, Chichester Cathedral, Chichester Heritage Office, Fishbourne Museum, The Mary Rose Museum, Petworth House, Portsmouth City Museum, Royal Marines Museum (Southsea), Southampton Maritime Museum, Tangmere Aviation Museum, and the West Sussex Record Office. For many students the experience has been transformative, offering them valuable insights and experiences ready for a future career.

Collaboration with Butlins Both the University of Chichester and the UK holiday resort Butlins are major players in the coastal town of Bognor Regis in West Sussex. Both organisations are well connected to the local community with the University’s presence in the town dating back to the 1940s when it was a teacher training college and with Butlins opening in 1960. In 2009 they signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding defining their co-operation in broad terms, this being the first time that a holiday resort has officially collaborated in this way with a university. This marks the start of a mutually beneficial working relationship between two neighbours that also benefits Bognor Regis. The agreement set out a number of joint initiatives including a University of Chichester Accreditation for Butlins’ employees for their in-house training at all three Butlins locations. The collaboration also involved the launch of a new Foundation Degree in Technical Skills for the Entertainment and Leisure Industry, with Butlins offering students work placements for this course as well as other relevant courses. Also included in the agreement was a year-long study by the University into the potential for a first-class seafront water-sport development in the town. Other collaborative developments are currently being discussed between the two parties such as the University working closely with the holiday resort to achieve ‘Green Accreditation’ and a ‘Wish You Were Here’ exhibition in 2011 to celebrate Butlins’ 75th Anniversary.

Old Romantics The South Coast Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Research Group (SCERRG) was founded in 2009 to promote academic research into all aspects of the long eighteenth century. The group aims to facilitate interdisciplinary debate and discussion between researchers and students in the region’s academic institutions. It holds and advertises a range of events, including academic seminars, conferences, postgraduate fora, and public events. In addition, the group will develop a number of publication projects and research initiatives, drawing on the expertise of scholars of the long eighteenth century in this region and nationally. It will also encourage dialogue amongst the South Coast postgraduate community. The group was launched by the University of Chichester, in partnership with Chawton House and the Universities of Kent, Portsmouth, Southampton, and Winchester. It will also prove of interest to scholars, students and members of the general public who wish to advertise or attend events relating to the academic study of the long eighteenth century. www.scerrg.org

“It really is a wonderful place to be a postgraduate student” “The University is small enough to provide a personal, intimate student experience. As a postgraduate, people know who you are and where your research interests lie and that really helps to create an environment that is warm, friendly and supportive. The faculty is excellent, the campus is beautiful and the research culture is lively. It really is a wonderful place to be a postgraduate student. It is a real pleasure to be part of such a warm and welcoming University” Helen Butcher, MPhil/PhD English

Dr Andy Clegg

Supporting Sustainable Economic Renaissance “The University of Chichester is a critical component in the sustainable social and economic renaissance of the West Sussex coastal strip and beyond.” To this end the School of Enterprise Management and Leadership (SEMAL) is involved in a variety of significant programmes with both business and the public sector to give students work experience and deliver real benefit to the region. One example is a significant piece of research into the social and economic impact of post office closure in West Sussex and funded by the West Sussex County Council. This has identified very real and significant impact on local businesses and vulnerable people. It is being used as the basis for implementing a series of recommendations made in the recently published report. Another example is a short research programme undertaken on behalf of Butlins and organised through the GraduateOn initiative aimed at providing recent graduates with project based experience. The research assisted Butlins to better understand food consumption and more importantly wastage in its residential restaurants. Undergraduates are given the option of a 10 week work placement during the second semester of their final year and are placed in local businesses, public sector and not for profit organisations including for example, Rolls Royce Motor Cars, Arun and Chichester District Councils.

Green Advantage The Tourism Management programme at the University specialises in sustainable tourism and sustainable destination management. As part of his work at the University, Dr Andrew Clegg, programme co-ordinator for Tourism Management works as a consultant and trainer for Tourism South East and is also a trainer for Regional Tourist Board Partnership's "Green Advantage" programme, a one-day course looking at sustainable business management for tourism enterprises. In recognition of his work in supporting sustainable business management, Andrew was named as winner of the National Training Award South East Prize for Providing Education and Training 2009 for delivering training relating to green tourism for small businesses. The National Training Awards recognise excellence in training and for this award Andrew had to demonstrate the drivers for the training, the nature of the training developed, and how training had impacted on business performance. The feedback from the NTA highlighted the calibre of the training being delivered 'Judges found that the energy and enthusiasm of the entrant was really infectious...the overall training package has been well modified to engage tourist operations and leads to these companies offering a greener tourist package'.

Seeing red Researchers at the University of Chichester have revealed that goalkeepers wearing red may have a winning edge. Dr Iain Greenlees, a Reader of Sport Psychology in the Faculty of Sport, Education and Social Sciences, looked at how goalkeepers’ clothing influenced penalty kick performance. In the experiment, university footballers were asked to take a series of penalties against goalkeepers wearing different coloured jerseys. The results indicated that fewer penalties were scored against those goalkeepers who wore red jerseys than keepers wearing blue, green or yellow jerseys. Iain said: “My research interest lies in examining how sporting competitors may influence the actions and performance of their opponents. I am particularly interested in how non-verbal communication such as body language, eye contact and even clothing colour may influence the outcomes of sporting encounters”.

Application Process – UCAS and GTTR The UCAS institution code name for the University is CHICH. The UCAS institution code number is C58. You will need to use these codes when submitting an application via UCAS or GTTR. An administration charge of £21 is required if you are applying to more than one institution. For applicants wishing to apply to one institution only, a reduced fee applies (£11). When do I apply? Ideally, you should apply via UCAS between 30 September and 15 January. Late applications (between 15 January until the end of June) should still be submitted in the same way. These will be considered, providing there are still vacancies on the course. Applications to Fine Art may follow a later schedule. For some very popular courses, such as Dance, Physical Education, Primary Education and Teaching and Social Work, an early application is advisable as there may be no vacancies after the deadline of 15 January. Please ensure that you allow time before the deadline for an academic reference to be completed by your referee. Applications to the PGCE are considered on a sequential basis (ie by one institution at a time). Therefore, applicants must carefully check the entry requirements for their first choice institution before sending their GTTR application form. All PGCE applications are considered in the order that they are received from the GTTR. The closing date for PGCE primary teaching applications is 1 December. Primary PGCE applications received after this deadline may be considered if there are still vacancies available. There is no closing date for secondary teaching applications. If there are no vacancies left on a course, however, it will be closed via the GTTR.

Can I apply for deferred entry in 2012 now? Yes, however, we do not accept deferred applications for PGCE courses. When will I hear from the University? We aim to respond to you within two weeks of the University receiving your completed application from UCAS (for non-interview subjects). For interview subjects, please allow one month. Please check UCAS / GTTR Track to monitor the progress of your application or contact the Admissions Office. Interviews Will I be called for interview/audition? Practice varies from course to course. For some courses, such as Teacher Training, Social Work, Counselling, Childhood Studies: Early Years, Dance, Music and Performing Arts, applicants who have made a good application and meet the relevant admissions criteria are called for interview/audition. Fine Art applicants will be required to provide a portfolio of work. For other courses, a decision will be based on the application form. If your application is successful, you will normally be invited to attend a post application Admissions Day, so you will have the opportunity to see the campus and meet tutors and support staff. We strongly recommend you visit the universities you are thinking of studying at, in order to help you make the right choice for you. Teacher Education Interviews The interview is designed to assess the applicant’s suitability for the teaching profession, as well as academic ability. All applicants will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of professional requirements and an awareness of current educational issues. To fulfil this requirement, you will need to have spent a minimum of two weeks observing/helping out in a UK state school within the last two years before you apply. Social Work Interviews The interview is designed to assess the applicant’s suitability for the social work profession. It is expected that most, but not all, students will have significant experience of a statutory care agency or voluntary/private organisation providing a social work or social care service.

Dance, Drama, Music, Musical Theatre and Performing Arts Interviews/Auditions Candidates may be asked to prepare a set piece in advance and asked to perform the piece in front of a group. Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) – Enhanced Disclosure Successful applicants to courses which involve contact with children or vulnerable adults are required, prior to the start of the course, to obtain at their own cost, a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB). We do not accept CRB Enhanced Disclosures gained in the name of a different Registered Body. The University reserves the right to refuse admission / terminate the registration of any applicant / student whose CRB check proves to be unsatisfactory. If you have not initiated the CRB application process prior to the start of term you will not be able to register on the course, which will impact upon your access to funding. The University of Chichester has numerous opportunities for applicants to send in their proof of identity which is needed to start the process. For further information please contact the Admissions Office. Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) Applicants must also have registered with the Independent Safeguarding Authority prior to being accepted onto a course which involves contact with children or vulnerable adults. Many applicants will be ISA registered before they apply to the University. For further information please contact the Admissions Office, or visit ISA website www.isa-gov.org.uk Occupational Health Declaration (Teacher Education, Counselling and Social Work) In accordance with the regulations for the training of teachers, counsellors and social workers, all successful applicants are required to have their mental and physical health checked by Occupational Health professionals, before beginning their studies. Failure to complete a medical questionnaire will result in withdrawal of the student’s place. A charge of £20 is made for this service (2009 cost).

“Student Services have been incredibly supportive� Student Services have been a great help to me. They offer a wide range of services such as student finance, international student advice, study skills and much more. I have attended the study skills services and as an international student, they have been incredibly supportive and really helped me to understand the assessments and to improve my writing and learning skills.� Stanislava Damaskinova, BA (Hons) Business and Management

Disability and Dyslexia Service Our Disability and Dyslexia Service supports students with a range of disabilities including: dyslexia, dyspraxia, visual impairments, hearing impairments, physical and mobility difficulties, social communication disorders, mental health issues and various medical conditions. The team can provide advice to prospective applicants at any stage of the application process. We advise applicants to contact us early in the process to help establish what we can offer and whether the University’s facilities are suitable. If you would like to visit us, please do make contact (details below). The Team The team has a Disability Advisor to advise students and the University staff on the learning needs of students with disabilities or medical conditions. The Sensory Advisor assists students with vision and/or hearing impairments to access course materials in alternative formats and to access assistive technology. The team also has a Dyslexia Advisor, who offers initial screening for dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, and assists students with obtaining full educational psychology reports etc. Our specialist team of support staff can provide assistance in various forms, for example: note-takers, readers, communicators, signers, non-medical helpers and mentors. Disabled Students’ Allowance We strongly recommend that all prospective applicants who have any form of disability, specific learning difficulty or medical condition apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowance as early as possible before starting university.

Opportunities for all We believe passionately that higher education should be open to everyone who has the ability and the potential to benefit from it, regardless of age, ethnicity, disability or family background. We know from our experience that a diverse student group creates a lively and successful community. You may think university isn't for you, well think again! Many of our most successful students and graduates once thought that and are now glad they seized the opportunity. We appreciate the obstacles many of you face as you consider higher education. Here are some of the ways in which we try to help as many people as possible take advantage of what we have to offer.

Part time Study Most degrees can be studied part time. Part time students follow the same course structure, but take fewer modules per year. Transfers between full time and part time modes are very easy, allowing you to study at your own pace. It can be an ideal solution for those who need to continue working, who are unsure what their circumstances will be in the near future, or who just want to sample degree level work to see if it is for them.

Flexible Entry Routes Do you want to study but lack formal qualifications? Special entry routes are available for mature applicants who do have relevant skills and / or subject knowledge but who do not possess the standard entry qualifications. Find out more Admissions • Tel: 01243 816002

Support for students who have a Care Background We are proud to hold the Frank Buttle Trust Award recognising that we have made a commitment to offer extra support to those students who have been in local authority care. A Care Leavers Co-ordinator has been appointed to minimise any difficulties applicants might have in being fully informed about entry to higher education. Support consists of guided advice both pre-entry and through the admissions process. For those whose application is approved by the Care Leavers Review Panel, we may also offer a Care Leavers Bursary, the offer of campus accommodation 365 days a year, and a named Student Advisor throughout their stay at University. Find out more Care Leavers Co-ordinator Please note all enquiries will be confidential • Tel: 01243 812171 • Email clc@chi.ac.uk

Mature Student Welcome Event Each September, usually just before the start of the Semester, we hold a Welcome Event for Mature Students who have been offered a place here at the University. For some of these students who have been out of full-time education for a while, the thought of going to University can be quite a daunting prospect. As well as providing an opportunity of meeting other new students in a similar situation, we discuss issues like finance, study skills and student support as well as an introduction to our learning resources and IT systems. However, the main idea behind the day is to provide an informal setting for students to get to know the campus, some of the staff and other new students who may be sharing some of the same concerns. Details of this event will be accessible on the University’s Admissions Portal to all students with a place.

Financial Assistance Are you deterred from applying because of money worries? We may be able to help. Find out more Finance Office Tel: 01243 816103
