About this prospectus This prospectus primarily details our taught postgraduate programmes; for more information on our research degrees, please see our website: www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate

THE BENEFITS OF POSTGRADUATE STUDY Professor Sir Steve Smith, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive The contribution of postgraduates to our financial, scientific, and intellectual futures is critical. A modern, global economy needs a highly skilled workforce, and postgraduates bring essential specialist skills, train future generations, and make the discoveries that drive progress and innovation.

where further expertise can give you the edge, and especially to the joy of discovering and understanding a subject you feel passionate about to the very deepest level, you will find that a postgraduate qualification will be one of the most rewarding things you ever do.

The contribution of postgraduate study to the individual is even more profound. As well as the economic benefits – people with a postgraduate qualification earn £5,000 more a year on average (or £200,000 over a 40-year working life*) than someone only holding a Bachelors degree – a postgraduate degree can open a world of other opportunities.

I come from a working class background and, despite being told ‘people like you don’t go to university’, I was the first person in my family to do so. I believe university is about achieving potential, individually and socially, and to do this we need to invest intellectually and financially in the people who are generating new knowledge and teaching future generations. The key way to do this is through postgraduate education.

From careers that require specialist training – such as engineering, education, academia, or healthcare – to highly competitive sectors and industries * According to research undertaken by the Sutton Trust, 2013

The life of an MA student is busy. When I applied I was aware there would be a step up, but the levels of commitment demanded from you are pretty large. Not so large that they’re unmanageable, but you do have to dedicate a lot of your life to organisation and reading. That said, this has undoubtedly been the best six months of my life. I can’t wait to begin my dissertation in April. Tom Oberst, MA Classics and Ancient History

WHAT IS POSTGRADUATE STUDY? Postgraduate study is a level above undergraduate study and covers a range of taught and research degrees. The majority of taught postgraduate programmes at Exeter are Masters degrees. These normally combine advanced-level tuition with the completion of a dissertation under the guidance of an individual member of staff. You will usually have a choice of modules enabling you to tailor your programme to your own interests. Most are 11-12

months full-time, with part-time options often available to UK/EU students. Contact hours vary widely, but as a general rule you should expect a full-time Masters degree to occupy as much time as a full-time job, whether this is in face-to-face contact time or individual study. This prospectus focuses on our taught degrees, however we also offer numerous PhD and other research degrees through our Doctoral College. www.exeter.ac.uk/doctoralcollege

Interested in a PhD at Exeter? You can browse our subjects and specialisms available, search for a supervisor or investigate funding at www.exeter.ac.uk/doctoralcollege All research students and early career researchers are supported by our Doctoral College, regardless of subject or college. This fosters our vibrant interdisciplinary research community and provides a rich array of resources to help you succeed in your research project.

INSPIRING RESEARCH We are the fastest growing research intensive university in the UK and 98 per cent of our research was rated as international or world-leading quality in the national Research Excellence Framework (REF)*, with world-leading research and impact in all subjects.

A global reputation Our research reputation has moved from international recognition to globallyrespected. Our research income grew by 87 per cent between 2008/09 and 2014/15, enabling us to recruit the best academic researchers and to offer hundreds of funded PhD studentships annually.

Collaboration locally, nationally and internationally We are at the forefront of global and national research collaboration, actively supporting our staff and students to build working relationships with counterparts overseas. In addition to the array of partnerships we hold with other Russell Group universities and publically-funded bodies, our industry partners include Airbus, GlaxosSmithKline, IBM and Rolls-Royce.

* Taking account of our quality and the proportion of staff submitted

Investing in our future research Investment in our research infrastructure extends to our facilities, with £340 million invested in science alone since 2008. On the Streatham Campus, the Living Systems Building will pioneer novel approaches to understanding diseases and how they can be better diagnosed, while our new £1.2 million Digital Humanities Lab will allow researchers to use high-tech equipment to explore our cultural heritage and creative past, and to share their discoveries with the public. The new Science and Engineering Research Support Facility on the Penryn Campus builds upon the £30 million investment in the Environment and Sustainability Institute, and the St Luke’s Campus has undergone a £10.5 million redevelopment of the South Cloisters building. This offers a new home for the Institute of Health Research, as well as high-quality student learning and study spaces available to all.

Research-inspired teaching Our research strength not only benefits our postgraduate research students who are supervised by experts in their field, but our taught Masters students also gain: often our lecturers are also our researchers – those writing the books and research papers. The teaching and knowledge received is at the forefront of knowledge and you will benefit from access to the latest thinking, equipment and resources.

Nurturing talent Postgraduate research students and early career researchers are integral part of our research community and success. A large proportion of papers submitted to the REF2014 were from these groups. Thirty per cent of our research staff are early career researchers; a much greater proportion than most universities. This creates a dynamic and collaborative environment that we support through high-quality training and supervision.

Research Council Doctoral Training Partnerships and Centres Our research reputation means we, with our partners, have been awarded over a dozen externally-funded doctoral training centres. These centres offer fully-funded PhD studentships covering the cost of doctoral research. Research students aligned to these centres of excellence also benefit in the form of supervision from more than one institution, bespoke research training and opportunities to engage in research collaborations from across the partnership.

Interdisciplinary research is an engine to innovation and a hallmark of Exeter’s recent success. Our research bridges the gap between the arts, humanities, social sciences and pure sciences to tackle global challenges, such as food security and ageing, in a holistic way. Professor Nick Talbot, Deputy Vice-Chancellor – Research and Impact

In a competitive job market, my MA helped me stand out from the crowd and develop the skills necessary to succeed on any career path. This included being able to analyse situations in a more thoughtful and detailed manner, and extensive interaction with subjects and arguments of a more developed calibre. My MA was enjoyable, challenging and memorable – getting to spend additional time in Exeter was a huge benefit. Stuart Still, Senior Research Associate at the Gerson Lehrmann Group (MA International Relations 2014)

PwC has worked alongside the careers team at the University of Exeter for over 10 years now, which has led us to recruit some very bright and engaging students from across a range of degree disciplines and year groups. We are always on the look out to find talented individuals from a range of backgrounds and are pleased to have such a strong working relationship with the University. We look forward to recruiting many more students in the years to come. Scarlett Seager, West and Wales Student Recruitment Manager, PwC

UK Government postgraduate loans  Borrow up to £10,000  Any Masters programme in any subject,

taught or research

 Full-time or part-time and distance

learning are included

 Loans will be available at any university

with degree-awarding powers in the UK

FEES AND FUNDING

 Anyone aged under 60 is eligible

Money is the single biggest barrier preventing people studying for a postgraduate degree. Identifying and securing funding for your Masters is vital to realising your ambitions, even though everyone’s circumstances and needs are different. When planning how to fund your postgraduate degree, make sure you start early and think creatively; the sooner you start planning the longer you have to research opportunities and accumulate funds.

How much does a Masters cost? Your tuition fee is only one part of the cost of studying a Masters: you will also need to account for living costs and accommodation, as well as other potential costs of your specific programme.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees vary from programme to programme, and are detailed in each of the subject entries in this prospectus.

Scholarships For the 2016/17 academic year, we made available more than £500,000 worth of scholarships. Scholarships tend to be highly competitive and merit-based, so we recommend investigating options early as deadlines and eligibility vary. Many schemes will not cover full costs, but may go some way to reducing the costs. You cannot normally hold more than one scholarship awarded by the University, but you can apply for as many external schemes as you like.

Alternative funding

The National Union of Students estimates living costs outside of London to be approximately £12,000 per year, including accommodation. This figure is a guide only; depending on your priorities and how you budget, it could vary significantly.

There are as many ways to pay for your postgraduate studies as there are people undertaking postgraduate study: wages, bursaries, savings, inheritance and, increasingly, alternative methods such as crowdfunding and philanthropy, are all valid and useful alternative ways of funding your degree. A portfolio funding approach, where you use several different sources of income to fund your studies, is becoming popular and may prove useful.

Outline accommodation costs are detailed on p26.

Accommodation and living costs

Programme costs

Some programmes may have additional costs, for instance optional modules may involve field trips, or you may prefer to own textbooks rather than borrow them from our library. Please contact your college of interest to clarify.

In my city-centre library I looked at the Grants Register, which lists various grants available to local students studying at postgraduate level. My scholarship in particular was aimed at those who had lived in the area where I grew up and had attended college or sixth form within the borough. The application form asked what course I was hoping to study and why I thought it would be beneficial to me and the wider society in the future. I was awarded the full cost of my tuition fees which took a huge weight off my mind! Amy Huxtable, MSc Paediatric Exercise and Health

Whilst searching for funding for my Masters, I came across a local charity who provide grants to local people to support educational activities. Hearing that they were open for applications, I wrote a short letter explaining I was selffunding a Masters and wondered if they would be able to help. A month later they replied with a cheque for £750. Will Nicholson, MSc Psychological Research Methods

Exeter is exactly the right place for me to do my Masters and I really enjoy my study and life here. Pisi Zheng, MSc Sport and Health Sciences (China)

I decided to attend Exeter because it is a top 10 UK institution making it the equivalent of a US Ivy League. Exeter is an incredibly beautiful and historic city. Despite my concerns about the educational and cultural differences, I was able to pick things up within a week. I’m having an excellent time and strongly encourage all Americans to give England a go.

Laboratories

Libraries

We have state-of-the-art laboratories for science, technology engineering, mathematics and medicine across all our campuses. These include the Environment and Sustainability Institute at our Penryn Campus, the Living Systems Institute at our Streatham Campus, and the Research, Innovation, Learning and Development Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Wonford site near St Luke’s.

Our main library facilities at Streatham and Penryn are open 24/7, and we also have specialist library spaces for postgraduate students, and extensive heritage collections, including the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, Du Maurier archive, rare books and maps, and much more. We have invested heavily in digital library resources; what you see on the physical shelves of our libraries now makes up less than half the library resources actually available.

I’ve really enjoyed the seminars – having the opportunity to share ideas with a range of people from all over the world has really increased my confidence and my understanding of a range of issues. Everyone is really friendly here, so if you are struggling with the workload, or there is something that you don’t understand in class, there are always people there to help you. I would urge students not to be shy! Go to as many societies and events as possible, and don’t be embarrassed about sharing your ideas in class. Being brave is the first step to discovering new things. Zoe Alford, MA English Literary Studies

Exeter has a number of leading researchers in my field, as well as an exceptional English department. Having studied as an undergraduate here I was accustomed to Exeter’s teaching and already loved the department, the University, and the campus. I also enjoyed the wide variety of other activities on offer at Exeter which are important to connect with while doing a Masters, I feel, as it can be quite an isolating experience. I enjoy the contemporary relevance and creativity of my area of study and the insight it allows me into recent history. Furthermore, I like the focus on popular culture in more recent literary work.

Forests, hills, coast, mines and different weather patterns will make anyone think about climate change and sustainability. If anyone wants to learn geography and environmental issues and prefers learning by doing, I think the University of Exeter should be their first choice.

I chose the LLM at Exeter because of the international outlook, excellent research-led modules and prestigious team of senior lecturers. I’ve since found that the research quality is very high, with excellent guidance available to help you pursue individual interests. Exeter also has fantastic library facilities, a strong student support system, and of course a beautiful campus! The programme is both academically intense and has great practical elements, including a field trip to the United Nations in Geneva. I hope to join an NGO as a lawyer and activist when I leave, and I’ve received careers guidance to help me achieve this, including help with my CV. Siddhi Soni, LLM International Human Rights Law
