WE hAvE A CLEAR viSiON fOR ThE fUTURE AND RESEARCh WiLL PLAY AN EvEN GREATER PART iN ThAT fUTURE.

Anglia Ruskin Universitys proud history goes back to 1858 when John Ruskin founded the Cambridge School of Art, now part of our Cambridge campus. Much has been written about John Ruskin, whose interests ranged from painting to innovative architecture, and building construction to philosophy. The common themes in his work included an insatiable thirst for enquiry and creative and unconventional thought. I would like to welcome you to Anglia Ruskin, University as a postgraduate student. I very much hope and believe that your studies with us will find these Ruskin themes embedded in the progressive learning we offer. Certainly we value our postgraduate student community for the rich contribution they make to both the academic life and the culture of our University. You will find that our expertise, like John Ruskins, is pretty broadly based. We are a leading postgraduate provider of business courses in the East of England. Many of our postgraduate students in English have gone on to write their own books quite soon after completing their studies with us. We have a clear vision for the future and research will play an even greater part in that future. We want to increase our postgraduate and professional student body as well as encouraging the best of our postgraduate researchers to join our academic staff as indeed many have done in the past. It has also been a personal delight to witness more and more overseas students choosing to study with us not least because Cambridge is such an inspirational learning environment. I very much hope you will consider joining us we are ambitious and determined that Anglia Ruskin University shall occupy a special place among UK universities, and you can help us get there.

YOUR POSTGRADUATE STUDY OPTiONS


mASTERS AND OThER TAUGhT POSTGRADUATE COURSES
We offer a comprehensive range of taught postgraduate courses. Our Masters courses normally combine taught modules with the completion of a Dissertation/Major Project under the guidance of your personal tutor, worth 180 credits in total. You will usually have a mixture of core compulsory modules and optional modules that you choose yourself, so that you can tailor your course according to your own personal interests. Modules of both types will include some form of assessment. The types of Masters courses available at our University are: Master of Arts (MA) Master of Business Administration (MBA) Master of Fine Art (MFA) Master of Laws (LLM) Master of Science (MSc). Our Masters courses generally take 12 months to complete if you study full-time, and comprise 180 credits. A Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) usually consists of 60 credits, while a Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) is generally 120 credits. The structure of the PG Cert and PG Dip courses tends to be the same as that of our Masters, only without the requirement of a final project or Dissertation. Both awards can be upgraded to a Masters with further study. Trainee teachers must meet a set of professional standards determined by the Government before they can be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). They do this by completing a period of initial teacher training (ITT) followed by an induction year in employment as a teacher. The course of initial teacher training offered at postgraduate level is the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). For the full list of our taught postgraduate courses, see our course finder on pages 5354. For information on funding your taught postgraduate course, see pages 910.

STUDYiNG AS A RESEARCh STUDENT


PhD and mPhil These research degrees involve an in-depth study of a topic, leading to the awards of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Master of Philosophy (MPhil). MPhil programmes critically investigate and evaluate an approved topic and demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to your chosen field. A PhD is only awarded when, in addition to the requirements for an MPhil, the results of your study make an independent and original contribution to knowledge. Full-time students can normally expect to complete our MPhil in two to three years and our PhD within three to four years. PhD by published work If you already have a portfolio of published work that has demonstrated an independent and original contribution to knowledge, together with an understanding of research methods appropriate to your chosen field, you may establish a case to submit a thesis for examination. Professional Doctorate Our Professional Doctorate (PrD) is designed and tailored to help senior-level professionals develop both their academic and professional knowledge. These are part-time research opportunities, combining a taught element and original research, that result in a thesis. For more information about our Professional Doctorates, refer to our Part-time Catalogue, or visit our website.

As an international student, youll be a long way from home. This has many advantages. Gaining a fine, internationally recognised education from our University is the most notable, of course. You will also get to immerse yourself in a completely different culture. Youll have experiences you would never have had at home. And youll meet interesting new people (from all over the world, not just the UK). I decided to study in the UK because it has a high standard of education that is recognised across the globe, and I believe that I will have good employment prospects once I complete my course. I was attracted to Anglia Ruskin University because it is a Cisco Networking Regional Academy and one of the few institutions in the United Kingdom that is able to deliver the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) award as part of their Masters degree course. I see this as an important step on my career path and thats why the postgraduate degree should not only enhance my subject knowledge, but also equip me with skills that will be useful throughout my career. muhammad Ziad international student, mSc Network Security

Our Cambridge campus is right in the heart of the city, and its right in the heart of the present day, too. Over the past few years, a great deal of investment has been put into our buildings and facilities, with further developments currently underway. The result is a modern Cambridge campus thats a superb environment for learning. Running from the main reception is a walkway that links together gallery space, a caf, a restaurant, a bookshop and our Student Services. A visual treat, our Ruskin Gallery will really stop you in your tracks. This gallery space, surrounded by artists studios, is used to display exhibitions of work by staff and students in our Cambridge School of Art, as well as pieces by guest artists.

www.visitcambridge.org University life is probably the first thing that people associate with Cambridge. Its fine educational heritage dates back many centuries. Some of the greatest scholars and scientists the world has ever seen have, at some time, called the city their home. East Road, in the city centre, is where it all began for Anglia Ruskin. This is where, in 1858, John Ruskin opened the Cambridge School of Art and laid the foundation for our Universitys Cambridge campus. Cambridge is a city where the new and the ancient sit very comfortably together. Its stunning architecture, medieval cobbled streets, college courts and public gardens make the city synonymous with history and culture. There are plenty of cultural events here, not least of which is the Shakespeare season that takes place in the Cambridge University gardens during the summer. Theres also the thrilling dramatic fare offered by our very own Mumford Theatre. For an annual programme of events, visit the website below.

With a population of around 120,000 and growing, Chelmsford is the county town of Essex, just 30 miles north-east of central London. The town is a centre of industry and commerce and, as such, has a thriving and innovative ambience, perfect for budding entrepreneurs. The birthplace of broadcasting, Chelmsford attracts a wealth of cultures which makes it ideal for you to immerse yourself in its cosmopolitan environment. The towns history of attracting different cultures dates back to when it was one of the first Roman settlements in Britain and was named Caesaromagus (the market place of Caesar) by the invaders.

Chelmsfords architectural centrepiece is its impressive Cathedral Church of St Mary, St Peter and St Cedd, with its 15th century origins. It may be an urban environment, but there are plenty of countryside retreats here. The borough has far more than its fair share of parks and green spaces: 1,700 acres (687 hectares) of them, in fact. For example, theres Oaklands Park, with its Victorian borders, museums, award-winning Echo Garden and skate park, as well as Hylands House and estate: a Grade II property in landscaped parkland. And for those of you drawn irresistibly to water, there are three freshwater rivers: the Can, the Chelmer and the Wid. Theres also the tidal Crouch in the south of the borough and the coast isnt far away, either. Theres a wealth of retail outlets here, including unique independent stores as well as the trusted high-street brands. High Chelmer and The Meadows are shopping centres in the middle of town. The latter also has an 8-screen cinema.

Ashcroft Building, is impressive. It combines striking aesthetics with the most advanced learning technologies. Students, employers and professional bodies alike acknowledge that this is a vital centre for business education and training. Our Chelmsford campus also boasts a building for our Faculty of Science & Technology and Faculty of Arts, Law & Social Sciences.

PAYiNG fOR YOUR ACCOmmODATiON


Youll have to pay a deposit when you rent accommodation. This will typically be the equivalent of at least one months rent, and perhaps as much as six to eight weeks. To make sure your deposit money is safe and that you get independent arbitration if a deposit dispute arises, deposits paid for assured shorthold tenancies should be held in a government-approved tenancy deposit scheme. If in doubt, ask us for more details.

ThE TEAm
The Students Union (SU) is run by a team of five annually elected, full-time sabbatical officers (ex-students) and a number of volunteer part-time officers (current students) who are assisted by permanent staff. If youd like the opportunity to become one of those sabbatical or part-time officers, you can stand in the annual March elections. Every registered student is eligible to vote and become an officer.

ThE bENEfiTS Of mEmbERShiP


Youll receive automatic SU membership as soon as youve registered as a student. The SUs work touches so many aspects of student life. It provides different opportunities, facilities and services in order to make your time at our University as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. Here are some examples of what it does. The advice service If you have a problem of any kind, not just academic, you can go to the SU for free, independent and impartial advice. You can talk face-to-face with advisers on both our Cambridge and Chelmsford campuses. Or, if you prefer, they can provide guidance by telephone or email. Whichever form youd prefer their counsel to take, it will carry the Community Legal Service Quality Mark. This means that it meets the strict quality standards laid down by the Legal Services Commission.

Student representatives Your course, like all those taught at our University, will have an elected student representative wholl speak on behalf of all the students on that course. The representatives regularly meet with the SU to discuss matters affecting their fellow students. The SU, in turn, may then bring these concerns to the attention of our University. So when important decisions are made or there are issues with teaching, assessment and other academic affairs, your voice can be heard. The representatives are aided by sabbatical officers and SU staff. There is a part-time Membership Services Administrator, who is the SU representative at University Centre Peterborough (UCP), and is available on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10.30am12.30pm at the SU office located in the new UCP Building at Park Crescent in Peterborough. Clubs and societies The SU plays a major role in our Universitys social life, running a large number of activities on both campuses. Taking part in these can be a great way to meet other students, keep fit and have a fun break from your studies. There are 70 societies and clubs to join. That covers most tastes and interests, but theres always room for another if youd like to set one up. If so, just talk to the SU. Give it a Go sessions on each campus, which may include day trips and events, are opportunities for you to try out a number of different activities.

YOUR OWN NEWSPAPER


APEX is our Universitys student newspaper. Its both managed and funded by the SU. The papers agenda is set by you, the students. And all contributions come from you. The editor-in-chief is the SU communications officer. You can either pick one up on-campus or download the latest copy or back issues from the SU website.

ALLiED hEALTh PROfESSiONS & STUDiES


The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 acknowledged the outstanding achievements of our Vision and Eye Research Unit and Biomedical Sciences.

WORLD-CLASS REPUTATiON
The quality of our research allows us to enjoy a high international profile. Consequently, were in collaboration with a number of different overseas partners. Our research staff and students have been instrumental in creating breakthroughs that are more than just dry academic achievements; these projects directly improve peoples well-being across the world.

Seeing beyond myopia Uncorrected refractive errors are a major cause of blindness in many parts of the world. VERU has made great strides in advances in myopia research through its work with optometrists, computing engineers and international partners, notably Vision CRC (funded by the Australian government). Our research also covers those diseases, such as diabetes, dementia and strokes, which arent directly ocular themselves, but which can severely affect vision. Our research expertise in the epidemiology of eye disease is recognised internationally, which resulted in our University being chosen to coordinate the Global Disease Project with a number of international partners. Other successes The issue of childrens welfare is also important to VERU, particularly as regards our research into the relationship of vision to conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye), autism and hearing difficulties. Our expertise in conducting trials and our state-of-the-art equipment have both enabled us to make a crucial contribution to the clinical testing of many newgeneration contact lenses and enabled fruitful collaborations with industry. Drug prescription Optometric independent prescribing is governed by the College of Optometrists clinical management guidelines. The process of developing these guidelines by members of VERU has highlighted deficiencies in the evidence base for the management of many conditions. To help improve this, VERU is well-placed to define the key areas to be addressed and to set up the necessary controlled clinical trials.

NEW TEChNiqUES iN CANCER DiAGNOSiS AND TREATmENT


Our biomedical science researchers have developed techniques that could result in novel cancer diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Our investigations into human DNA replication, licensing and mitotic pathways have revealed fundamental new insights into the different growth-control strategies adopted by self-renewing, stable and permanent tissues and their dysregulation in cancer.

biOmEChANiCS
Other significant achievements have been made by our biomechanics researchers. For example, weve made breakthroughs in stress analysis, leading to improved aspects of implant surgery and hospital care. Weve developed a system for the early detection of wear and replacementjoint loosening in prosthetic implants, making it possible to predict the early onset of osteoarthritis, and weve successfully merged CT and MRI scan data, thereby enabling researchers to produce anatomically correct human-joint models incorporating both hard and soft tissue.

AbOUT vERU
One particular collaborative venture of which were justifiably proud is our Vision and Eye Research Unit (VERU). Theres a real spirit of collaboration within VERU. It has links with many Faculties and Departments within our University itself, but beyond that, we also work closely with the optical and pharmaceutical industries, the NHS, and a number of international research partnerships. Research activities Our areas of interest include: contact lens and anterior eye research; epidemiology of eye disease; glaucoma research; learning difficulties and dyslexia; low-vision research; myopia and the factors that influence its progression; psychophysical assessment of neural mechanisms in normal and anomalous vision; visual short-term memory and its clinical application in patients with impaired memory functions; diabetic retinopathy in Asians and Caucasians; and colour vision in performance horses and primates.

OUR fUTURE
Our ambition for VERU is to become an internationally recognised centre in a number of research fields, and to become a magnet for research students and other partners.

ART & DESiGN


The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 rated 70% of our art & design work as internationally recognised or internationally excellent. The submissions were incredibly diverse. They included artists film and video, cultural theory and history, fine art, illustration and performance contexts. In illustration in particular, our work was rated as world-leading. 2) fine Art Research Group This group is concerned with the formal and expressive qualities of painting, drawing, photography and printmaking. The agenda of the research group includes contemporary abstraction, the problems of representation and what is meant by the term real. David Ryan, one of our researchers, has been exploring these using the moving image, writing and sound in his Arts Council-funded project, Making Sounds. This explores European and American trends in new music. It also includes his interview with Pierre Boulez, the experimental French composer and conductor. 3) Performance Contexts Group Performance contexts research encompasses a multitude of activities. Among these are performance, scenography, animation and video games. The transliteracy of performance contexts and new approaches to stage performance and screen technology are all examined. The New International Encounter group was established by Alex Byrne in collaboration with the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. Its work in exploring new forms of storytelling in acting and staging impressed the Arts Council sufficiently for the group to secure a substantial award for new productions.

OUR RUSKiN GALLERY


This was another feature to catch the eye of the RAE. The Ruskin Gallery our unique exhibition space at the heart of Cambridge School of Art was described as enhancing research dissemination and debate. In 2009, our Ruskin Gallerys many memorable exhibitions attracted 10,000 visitors. Among these were the schoolchildren coming to see Sara Fanellis Pinocchio, and Pink Floyd fans on a pilgrimage to The Other Room: a tribute to Cambridge School of Art alumnus Syd Barrett. The 2009 programme also included retrospectives of the graphic design of war poster artist Abram Games, the screen prints of Josef Albers, and China Stories, a group exhibition of contemporary Chinese photography. There was also an international show of contemporary artists views of architecture and the urban landscape, Reconstructing the Old House. This exhibition, originally shown at the Nunnery in London, was curated by Benet Spencer, Pathway Leader for BA (Hons) Fine Art at Cambridge School of Art.

ThREE RESEARCh GROUPS


Research in art & design at our University is centred around three main groups. This allows our researchers to explore a diverse range of topics and to draw on the formidable academic expertise of a number of Departments within our University. The groups are: 1) The Centre for Childrens book Studies The centre draws together the research activities of staff and students from the Cambridge School of Art (CSA); the Department of English, Communication, Film and Media; and the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University. The main focus of the centres work is the practice and theory of the illustration of childrens books. The CSA now hosts the UKs first MA in Childrens Book Illustration. The centre is very well connected internationally, with research partners in Asia, Europe and South America. Such is the esteem in which the CSAs Martin Salisbury, Reader in Illustration, is held, he was recently one of the judges at the inaugural CJ Picture Book Festival in Seoul. His task? To select the winners of the Picture Book Awards and Illustration Awards. Other members of the panel included Thierry Magnier, the legendary French publisher, and Yuko Takesaka, director of the Chihiro Illustration Museum in Tokyo.

OUR fUTURE
Never one to rest on its laurels, Cambridge School of Art has seen the number and scope of its research programmes expand significantly in recent years. We hope this trend will be a virtuous circle, so that our Art & Design research continues to raise our international profile, thereby attracting additional external funding. This will allow us to carry out work in exciting new fields of research.

EDUCATiON
Nearly two-thirds of the academics in our Faculty of Education are active in research. In their capacity as sole authors, co-writers and editors, they have published books; contributed to research journals; and made speeches and presentations at national and international conferences. The culture of our Faculty is one where teaching and research are regarded as having equal value, and the interrelationship of the two is explored using books, journal articles, conferences and web-streaming.

ThE ThREE GROUPS


Our research is subdivided into three discrete groups: disability, inclusion and special education early childhood pedagogical research. i) Disability, inclusion and special education research This area of research is becoming increasingly important to our Faculty of Education, it has a particular focus on disability; special educational needs; mothering (parenting); reproduction; care; inclusive and special education; movement education; using drama for children with socially challenged behaviour; creative approaches for children with special educational needs; qualitative, reflexive and autobiographical research methods. Our researchers include Dr. Melanie Peter and Dr. Chrissie Rogers, who are both active in the field. ii) Early childhood research Our research in this area has a dual focus: 1) Pedagogies and young childrens experiences in diverse, early-year settings. This includes work exploring contemporary curricula and intercultural pedagogy; forest schools and playful learning environments; childrens identities and perceptions of their educational experiences; inclusion and therapeutic interventions; and fostering childrens personal, social and emotional development. 2) The education and training of students in higher education who are studying early childhood courses. This centres on innovative and participatory approaches to learning, teaching and assessment in early childhood studies; and investigating students professional learning experiences. Our researchers are Professor Theodora Papatheodorou, Julia Druce, Mallika Kanyal, Sara Knight, Pauline Loader, Paulette Luff, Rachel Pryor, Christine Such, Rebecca Webster, Hazel Wright and Professor Emeritus Janet Moyles.

iii) Pedagogical research This field of research includes: urban education, with a focus on pedagogies and curricula in changing urban contexts; leadership and management of urban primary schools; location and contextsensitive mobile-learning applications, and how they can enrich the learning experience and engage students more within the learning activities; assessment in higher education; widening participation; childrens literature; and moral and spiritual education. Our researchers are Dr. Simon PrattAdams, Alan Bradwell, Peter Cook, Dr. Philip Howlett, Dr. Margaret Hutt, Phil Long, Alpesh Maisuria, Dr. Heather Meacock, Shirley Pickford, Anthony Russell, Dr. Antoinette Wattebot and Reader Emeritus Dr. Gill Robinson. Research support Indicative research support activities for researchers include: esearch training programmes, e.g. r sessions on research proposals, bid writing for funded research, thesis-writing and writing for publications unch time brown bag sessions, where l informal discussion takes place on research issues and current debates in education and research Research matters sessions, where researchers present completed research or research in progress for peer review ur annual Faculty-based research o conference egular meetings organised by the r individual research groups.

OUR mODUS OPERANDi


Were proud of our high standards of scholarship and research. Our students are taught by, and undertake research with, scholars at the forefront of their disciplines. The skills that our postgraduate students acquire are transferable across all education sectors. All the working methods used by our research groups adhere to the same principals: hey support and develop all academic t staff as researchers hey extend the existing research t culture by using both full- and part-time postgraduate researchers hey undertake funded and t collaborative research hey generate additional consultancies t and partnerships with stakeholders and policymakers.

OUR fUTURE
The growth of our research groups has led to the creation of the Childhood and Youth Research Institute, and we welcome PhDs within this area. The Childhood and Youth Research Institute is a cross-faculty initiative with our Faculty of Health & Social Care, and the Faculty of Arts, Law & Social Sciences.

ENGLiSh LANGUAGE & LiTERATURE


The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 gave its verdict: it said 20% of our work was world-leading. Our English research culture and environment were also recognised as internationally excellent. Of all the Departments in the country, ours was the twelfth best performing.

STRENGTh iN DEPTh
14 of our researchers were involved in RAE 2008. Even a cursory look at the submissions will reveal the Departments breadth of expertise and interests. They included novels, poetry, monographs, scholarly editions and journal articles. Among these were Sarah Annes Browns Devoted Sisters: Representations of the Sister Relationship in Nineteenth-Century British and American Literature; Tanya Horecks Public Rape: Representing Violation in Fiction and Film; Julia Swindells Glorious Causes: The Grand Theatre of Political Change, 17891833; and Rowlie Wymers Derek Jarman. We take great pride in traditional scholarship at our University, as exemplified by Professor Nora Crooks RAE submission: Mary Shelleys Literary Lives and Other Writings. This builds on Professor Crooks long-established international reputation for textual work on both Mary and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Refereed journal articles are a crucial indicator of the international impact of our research. Our success in this area is therefore a clear acknowledgement of our works quality. Examples include Mary Joannous Nancy Cunards English Journey in Feminist Review; Patricia McCormacks Necrosexuality in Rhizomes; and Valerie Purtons The Divided Self: A New Reading of Tennysons Balin and Balan in Philological Quarterly.

DRAWiNG A CROWD
As well as conducting regular research seminars for our staff and postgraduate students, our Department excels at organising major conferences. Recent examples include the third Shakespeare and His Contemporaries: Performance and Adaptation (SCAENA) conference, Shakespeare and his Contemporaries: Performance and Adaptation; a colloquium on Rosamond Lehmann; and the latest in a long-running series of one-day conferences celebrating the work of mid-20th century women writers. These events have proved to be unmissable, not least to the high-profile, international speakers theyve managed to attract.

OUR ADvENTUROUS POSTGRADUATES


Our postgraduate students contribution to our success in English research is immense. We continually throw down the gauntlet, challenging them to explore areas of particular interest to them and to question received wisdom. They inevitably rise to the challenge. In addition to publishing their own work, our students make important contributions to research seminars and conferences.

OUR fUTURE
English is a flagship research subject at Anglia Ruskin. It serves as an inspiration for other research across our University. However, we take nothing for granted; we are working hard to build upon our current and historic successes and make an outstanding submission to the 2013 Research Excellence Framework. Oh, and did we mention that weve recently secured funds for research into the political implications of Twitter and Facebook? Watch this space...

fUNDiNG
The quality of research undertaken at our University has attracted external funding for our work. Just a few years ago, in collaboration with the universities of Durham and Warwick, we secured the largest Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant ever awarded to a project in English Literature. This was an 832,000 grant for The Complete Works of James Shirley (1596 1666). An Edition in 10 Volumes. 344,000 of this went to our University. Eugene Giddens is one of the projects general editors.

ThE ROLE Of CREATivE PRACTiCE iN RESEARCh


The importance of creative practice within our Universitys research culture is increasingly being recognised. Dr. Laura Dietzs novel In the Tenth House was the product of extensive research into the relationship between late 19th century psychiatry and spiritualism; research that revealed some unexpected similarities between the work of the psychoanalyst and that of the psychic.

ENviRONmENTAL STUDiES
The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 gave the following independent verdict of our submitted research. 65% was deemed to be of international standard or better, with 15% internationally excellent and 5% world-leading. We see that as a ringing endorsement of our Universitys clearly defined research strategy: namely, to focus on creating centres of international research excellence in specific areas. Our research in environmental studies involves two distinct groups: the Animal and Environmental Research Group and the Investigative Chemistry Research Group. This work is led by our Global Sustainability Institute, which has therefore been able to undertake a huge variety of research programmes, many of which have captured the interest of people way beyond the confines of academia.

NEW WORLD mONKEY bUSiNESS


The Animal and Environmental Biology Research Group is also developing new insights into animal behaviour. One of our recent studies demonstrated a trichromatic advantage in foraging New World monkeys. The paper became one of the most cited in its field that year. Another paper, published in Nature, was the result of colleagues at our University collaborating with researchers elsewhere to identify proximate mechanisms for olfactory communication in mice. Further work has shown how artificial selection has interfered with these naturally selected processes. This work is crucial in providing a greater understanding of animal behaviour in general: findings from this research are now being applied to develop insights into the behaviour of other species.

WORLDWiDE RENOWN
Egyptian mummies and manuscripts, mediaveal glass and a variety of precious stones: these are just a few of the artefacts and relics being examined by our Investigative Chemistry Research Group together with Cambridges Fitzwilliam Museum. Our research group is also in the vanguard of developing new techniques and understanding in drug chemistry, through the examination of impurities in newly controlled piperazines. Our recently established molecular cytogenetics laboratory has enabled researchers to carry out a detailed evaluation of the toxicity of these new substances. This builds on our earlier success in developing a harmonised method for profiling amphetamines using GC-MS analysis of chemical impurities. Such is the success of this method, its being adopted by the forensic science community across Europe, the United States and Australia. It has truly broken new ground by making profiling data available on a global scale.

bLACK SqUiRRELS ON ThE ONE ShOW


One example of this far-reaching appeal was the research picked up by The One Show, BBC Look East, ITV Anglia News and Shared Earth. Conducted by our Animal and Environmental Biology Research Group, this concerned the genetics of black squirrels. The group has also collaborated with the University of Cambridge to investigate the invasion of harlequin ladybirds into the UK. In doing so, they have attracted the support of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the National Biodiversity Network. The resulting grant has enabled us to monitor and evaluate landscape and wetland restoration projects in the fenlands of eastern England.

READiNG ThE bOOK Of LifE


The human palaeoenvironment is a thrilling new research field. Using the very latest DNA analysis tools, our researchers can now explore how the environment has influenced human genetic variation over the past 200,000 years, and discover how humans have in turn sought to change their own environment through animal domestication. This study includes groundbreaking research into 7,500-year-old DNA from skeletons of the first European farmers, as well as the analysis of the DNA of over 600 domesticated horses; the first survey of this kind. Unsurprisingly, this fascinating work has been seized upon by the media. It has been featured on the Discovery Channel and in the BBCs Motherland A Genetic Journey, winner of the One World media award for best TV documentary.

OUR fUTURE
This is just the beginning. Were determined that our excellent research programmes will continue to attract international attention. We have state-of-the-art technical resources and experienced and expert staff: We now look forward to meeting our latest postgraduate students.

hiSTORY
The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 was unequivocally complimentary in its findings. It rated 20% of our work as world-leading in this field; 40% was internationally excellent; and 25% was internationally recognised. Our research in history is centred on two themes: key aspects of British labour history, and 18th and 19th century court and popular culture. This has enabled our researchers to become extremely knowledgeable in certain areas, yet there is still considerable scope for exploring a wide variety of research topics.

18Th AND 19Th CENTURY COURT AND POPULAR CULTURE


A departments research strength is largely dependent on its readers and lecturers. We are fortunate enough to have a number of figures who are prominent in their fields. r. Rohan mcWilliam: best known for D his work on Victorian radicalism and popular culture. larissa Campbell Orr: a reader in C enlightenment, gender and court studies. The subject of her latest book, a work in progress, is George IIIs consort, Queen Charlotte. r. San Lang: a specialist on British D India in the 19th century. Dr. Lang is currently devoting much of his time to writing a new book on the British Crown and India.

s Orr is currently contracted to write M a biography of Mary Granville Delany for Yale University Press and to co-edit a book of essays, An Enlightenment Statesman in Whig Britain: Lord Shelburne in Context (17371805) for Boydell Press, forthcoming, 2010. Dr. San Lang Obstetrics and Obstruction: Maternity Hospitals in Madras 18401854 in The Hospital Beyond the West (Orient Longman, 2009) by Margaret Jones and Mark Harrison (eds). Dr. Jon Davis he Labour Party and the Wider World, T co-edited with Paul Corthorn, I.B. Tauris (2007) r. Davis is also preparing to co-edit a D new work based on the second Labour government (192931). Professor John Shepherd ritains First Labour Government B (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2006), jointly written with Keith Laybourn ritains Winter of Discontent 197879 B (MUP, forthcoming).

LAbOUR hiSTORY RESEARCh UNiT


Our research unit on Labour Party history was launched in 2008 under the directorship of both Dr. Jon Davis (Principal Lecturer) and Professor John Shepherd (Senior Research Fellow). Dr. Davis specialises in the history of the Labour Party and its relationship with the Soviet Union, and Professor Shepherd is best known for his biography of George Lansbury, the leader of the Labour Party from 1932 to 1935. Our unit is actively involved in new initiatives and projects. One such initiative was our sponsoring of the 2009 conference Britains Second Labour Government, 192931: A Reappraisal.

RECENT PUbLiCATiONS
Our research programmes consistently produce new insights and challenge conventional thinking. Youll get a flavour of our researchers interests from the selection of their recent publications given below. These have been enthusiastically reviewed by the research community. Dr. Rohan mcWilliam The Tichborne Claimant: A Victorian Sensation, Hambledon (2007) he Victorian Studies Reader (2007), T co-edited with Kelly Boyd.

mUSiC
The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 rated no less than 80% of our work as international standard, and 20% as internationally excellent or world-leading in this field. Music research, conducted under the auspices of the Department of Music and Performing Arts, focuses on four areas of empirical and theoretical enquiry: music therapy, composition, musicology and creative music technology. These include interrelated fields of activity, and colleagues frequently collaborate on joint publishing and conference projects.

AREAS Of ExPERTiSE
Professor Tony Wigram Professor Wigrams work explores the areas of diagnosis and assessment, vibroacoustic therapy, autism, Rett Syndrome, applied improvisation skills and music therapy education. Professor helen Odell-miller Professor Odell-Millers work as a clinician and researcher focuses on the field of adult mental health. Her research areas include: music therapy and dementia; music therapy and links with diagnosis in adult mental health; music therapy and personality disorders, and arts therapies and mental health. Dr. Amelia Oldfield Dr. Oldfields empirical research centres on learning disabilities, autism, child development and child and family psychiatry. The many invitations that our staff members receive worldwide to publish, speak and advise on research matters at doctoral and post-doctoral level is indicative of the esteem in which they are held internationally.

Dr. Kevin Flanagans creative work focuses upon the integration of musical styles and impulses and the aesthetic integration of sound and word. His collaboration with Gary Snyder, the Pulitzer Prize-winning beat poet, resulted in the recordings Riprap parts I & II. His Mode for Joe II has been performed at Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the London Jazz Festival.

iNTERNATiONAL PERfORmANCES & iNTERNATiONAL RECOGNiTiON


The work of Dr. Julio dEscrivn uses music technology both for concert music and for film, video and new media. His Sueo Con Ranitas, a piece for marimba, accelerometer sensors and video, has been performed at many venues internationally, including the Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Texas and the Paris Conservatoire.

mUSiC ThERAPY: ThE ROLE Of CLiNiCAL PRACTiCE


Our University is widely known as a leader in music therapy research. We have excellent technical facilities within our Research Centre for Music & Health and our staff have a great breadth of expertise. Our investigations into the links between clinical practice and research findings underpin everything we do, especially in key areas such as autism and assessment; children and families; adult mental health; and dementia. Our RAE 2008 submissions comprised peer-reviewed articles and books, including major works by Professor Tony Wigram, Professor Helen Odell-Miller, Dr. Amelia Oldfield and Helen Loth.

OUR fUTURE
The RAE 2008 results were very gratifying for our University. Since then weve released a further five publications of world-leading standard. The academics responsible are key researchers within our Universitys interfaculty research institute, Cultures of Digital Economy (CoDE). Were keen to keep the momentum going and undertake the sort of fascinating, innovative work that the international research community is waiting to see.

PSYChOLOGY
WORLD-RENOWNED RESEARCh ThAT PRODUCES TANGibLE RESULTS
The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 rated 45% of our research as either world-leading or internationally excellent, and a further 35% was rated as internationally recognised. Consequently, among of all the UKs many modern (post1992) universities, our University has the top-rated Psychology Department. Psychology research at our University is led by two distinct research groups: the Brain and Cognition Research Group and the Stress, Health and Emotion Research Group. They divided their RAE 2008 submissions into the following categories: aphasia, consciousness, dementia, emotion, language and memory.

LifE-ENhANCiNG RESEARCh
Producing academic work that has not only increased our understanding of cognitive processing but also benefited individuals has been incredibly rewarding for us. Two such streams of world-leading research were: Investigations of Amnesia, Conceptual Knowledge and Dementia by Dr. Peter Bright, and Language, Cerebral Asymmetry and Aphasia by Dr. Bettina Mohr. Both employed multiple methods, such as Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Electroencephalography (EEG) and behavioural investigations to deepen our understanding of how these functions operate in the healthy brain, and how they break down in patients with neurological impairments. The findings have important implications for the clinical care and rehabilitation of patients with a variety of clinical conditions.

APPLiED, SOCiAL AND hEALTh PSYChOLOGY RESEARCh GROUP


The research in this group focuses on the area of applied and health psychology, with particular strengths in developmental disorders, emotion, stress, sexual health, group processes, and consumer psychology. As a group we have published over 20 papers in peer-reviewed journals in the period 20082010, and also submitted three major research grants to the ESRC and the National Institute for Health Research. Two of our three PhD students successfully completed this year. Current research includes work on autistic spectrum disorders, Tourettes syndrome, the psychological and physiological impact of caring for a partner with dementia, and the development of emotional awareness in children. Dr. John Lambies pioneering work into the relationship between emotional experience, rationality and self-knowledge was a major contributor to our RAE 2008 success.

bRAiN AND COGNiTiON RESEARCh GROUP


This group comprises highly experienced scientists who are leading authorities in their fields, and who have a particular interest in cognitive functions in the healthy brain and the nature of impairment in clinical populations. Our group has seven senior researchers who are investigating areas as diverse as aphasia, cerebral asymmetry, dementia, developmental disorders, face perception, intelligence, language, memory and schizophrenia. Our work is proving to be very productive: since 2005, weve produced over 80 collaborative research papers that have appeared in high-impact international journals.

GARLANDED WiTh AWARDS


Another recent success was Professor Eamon Strains investigation, in local schools, of how the teaching of children with dyslexia could be improved. This important research has been awarded both the Lord Stafford Impact Through Innovation award (2009) and the UNICO Public Policy and Service Impact award (2009). And it was also a finalist in the Times Educational Supplements Outstanding Special-Needs Initiative of the Year award (2009).

OUR fUTURE
Our expertise and the dedication of our staff have achieved so much. But equally crucial for future achievements will be the commitment of our postgraduate students. This will ensure a stimulating research environment enabling staff and students to engage in world-leading research.

The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 rated almost 90% of our work in Allied Health and Social Work & Social Policy as internationally recognised or internationally excellent, and over 5% as world-leading.

CURRENT AND RECENTLY COmPLETED PROJECTS


Open Arts: Professor Jenny Secker Open Arts was established with the support of South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and local South Essex commissioners. The project gives arts opportunities to people experiencing, or at risk of, mental health problems. Community development work has included four exhibitions, interactive workshops, community involvement and an education programme at Tate Modern. Training Older People as Researchers: Professor Carol munn-Giddings, Dr. Andy mcvicar, melanie boyce and Niamh Obrien Developed in partnership with Essex County Council and funded by Skills for Care, this project recruited and trained 14 students aged 6080. Of those, nine then formed WhyNot!: a research group that has now completed four projects for ECC, with a further three years consultancy funding agreed. Researching with Children and Young People: Sue Collier, Dr. Tina moules, Carolyn Seeman, Niamh Obrien Our research team worked with clinical colleagues at Broomfield Hospital to create a Childrens Council. Now young people, including children as young as three (all patients and ex-patients of the Burns Rehabilitation Unit) are being asked for their input into the interior design of a new unit. international Comparison of Ten medical Regulatory Systems: Dr. Paul Sanderson Dr. Sanderson jointly ran, with Han de Vries of RAND Europe, a project commissioned by the General Medical Council (GMC). It contrasted medical regulation systems in the ten home countries of the largest groups of non-UK qualified doctors registered in the UK.

The study recommended: i) improved communication with other regulators about medical practitioners wishing to practise in the UK; and ii) the provision of assistance to non-UK-qualified medical graduates to help them adapt to and understand the UK approach. Should i Stay or Should i Go? Dr. Deborah holman, Dr. Claudia Schneider Dr. Holman and Dr. Schneiders report Longitudinal Study of Migrant Workers in the East of England was commissioned by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA). Their research then led to their paper: Should I Stay or Should I Go? New European Citizens Decision-Making on Length of Stay in the UK: A Preliminary Exploration. This was presented at the annual conference of the Social Policy Association (SPA). Theyve also secured 35,000 of external funding for the evaluation of the Team East for Skills 2012 programme for getting into employment through volunteering.

Course oVerView
The aim of our course is to enable you to achieve the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) proficiencies for entry to the professional register and to become a professional practitioner, assuming the responsibilities and accountability of a registered nurse caring for adults. It will also enable you to develop and influence nursing practice, and to demonstrate mastery of the evidence base that underpins adult nursing. To be a nurse, you need to see the individual beyond the case notes; to build trust and reassurance. Every day you will face challenges, elation and sometimes disappointment. As a career, it asks for a strong commitment, but a big part of the reward is knowing that what you do is likely to have a deep and lasting impact on your patients, their friends and families, and the people you work with.

Applied research for Health Practice This module is designed to support practitioners working within a health care environment to approach small-scale professional research. The module considers a range of research methods and paradigms appropriate to health practice, and enables you to evaluate published research. The learning outcomes will enable you to undertake work-based activities in your exploration of applied research these activities form the basis of the reflective report for module assessment. Consideration of the ethical dimensions of health care and the regulatory models which control research are key features of the module. long term and end of life Care In this module you will critically examine the issues for people diagnosed and living with long-term conditions, and for those who have reached the end of their lives. You will critically analyse the importance of interprofessional/intercollaborative working and establish how to meet the needs of clients and families within a multi-cultural community. Complexities of Acute Care This module will address the challenges of managing care when an adult is seriously ill as a result of a critical illness or serious injury. During this module you will have the opportunity to critically analyse the evidence base for interventions that enable rapid and continuing assessment in order to preserve life. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to consider the psychological impact that a life-threatening illness or serious injury can have upon adults and their families. Effective care of an acutely ill adult requires a robust understanding of assessment, treatment and care interventions and adaptability to their potentially rapidly-changing condition. developments and innovations in Health Care The focus of this module is the delivery of safe and effective quality care and the processes by which this is monitored. Current policy statements emphasise the need for clinical governance, high-quality care for all and a workforce who can help shape the National Health Service (NHS) agenda proposed by Lord Darzi. This module will focus on these issues and enable you to critically appraise developments in patient care and the role of quality, innovation, productivity and prevention in enhancing patient care.

Core Modules
Fundamentals of nursing Individuals do not function in isolation but form part of wider communities and societies. These communities and societies in which people live and work are (in many cases) made up of a diverse mixture of differing cultural, ethnic, political and religious groups. This can influence an individuals view of their world and their expectations in relation to health and social care provision. In this module you will critically examine the values and beliefs that are a fundamental part of every individual and consider the differences that exist between individuals and groups in society. Planning Care for the Adult Patient This module will provide you with the necessary theories that underpin nursing assessment and care planning, and provide an opportunity to apply these to practice. You will be required to gather, critically analyse and interpret information on patient assessment and critically appraise how this process develops into effective, evidence-based care delivery within an inter-professional care environment.

Course oVerView
Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (CSA) has recently been declared one of our Universitys areas of proven excellence. This is built on a tradition which goes back 150 years to the founding of CSA. Notable alumni include designer and war artist Edward Bawden; acclaimed graphic satirist Ronald Searle; and the founders of the TV phenomenon Spitting Image, Roger Law and Peter Fluck. The specific success of numerous undergraduates in this field led to the founding of this specialist, studio practice-based MA, which is the first of its kind in the UK. Interest in the art of illustration for children has grown considerably in recent years. Our UK heritage is particularly strong, going back to early chapbooks, through Thomas Bewick, Walter Crane, Randolph Caldecott, the golden age of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, and through the 20th century with Edward Ardizzone and Quentin Blake. Blake is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from our University. The increasingly global nature of todays childrens publishing industry is reflected in the research and practice of the staff team. The MA in Childrens Book Illustration is a taught studio course that focuses on the creative development and direction of each student artist. The teaching is delivered primarily by internationally recognised artists, writers and publishers who work professionally in the field of childrens book illustration. Each module requires you to propose and develop a project through negotiation with tutors, within the broad parameters of the module definition. One-toone tutorial support is seen as a key element of the student experience along with group critiques, briefings and seminars.

Core Modules
observation and experiment This module constitutes a foundation for our course. Focusing on drawing, you will propose and execute a thematic drawing project exploring a subject through observation and imagination. There is no requirement for the visual work to be consciously aimed at an audience of a particular age group. This reflects the course ethos of the importance of developing a visual language as an artist rather than pursuing preconceived notions of stylistic appropriateness. the sequential image You will propose and design a project that is presented in sequential visual form. Workshops and seminars will examine and discuss how we read visual sequence. Outcomes do not have to be aimed at children at this stage but must communicate clearly in sequential form. the diploma Project You will propose and negotiate a completed visual statement, designed to communicate with a child audience of a stated age group. Projects can vary greatly in form of outcome to include, for example, picture books, animated films, series of posters, portfolios of illustrations, and fiction or nonfiction texts for older children. Outcomes may be in any form or medium. the diploma review As the major written element of our course, you will propose and negotiate a 6,000 8,000 word essay, which places your own visual practice in the historical and contemporary context of the discipline. You will reflect on your practice, exploring personal influences and aspects of the industry that are of particular interest, historically or theoretically. The purpose of this module is to bring a more informed and reflective aspect to personal creative practice. Masters stage Project This is the final, summative project, the successful completion of which leads to the Masters award. You will negotiate and propose a substantial creative visual project which you will undertake with a mixture of scheduled group teaching and individual tutorial support. Projects will vary greatly in nature and form but will be sequential and will speak to the child.

The course has built strong links with the childrens publishing industry. The annual London graduation exhibition, which takes place in a leading West End gallery in February, is attended by representatives of most leading publishing companies and literary agencies. A more formal partnership exists between the course and Egmont UK, who work regularly with our students and provide work experience visits to their London offices.

student ProFile The course has given me the chance to challenge myself to develop my creativity. A lot of independent work is required, but I have felt supported and have been encouraged by the tutors. One of the best things about the course is that you are able to try new techniques which can be useful for your projects and future career. The printmaking and the letterpress rooms are amazing, and there are some workshops to show you how to use different techniques properly. The course offers many opportunities to make contact with publishers, through lectures or the final exhibition that takes place in a small gallery in central London. Another positive thing is that Ive met fantastic classmates who come from many different countries, and have different visions of illustration. Its very enriching to share the studio with people that have the same passion for picture books as you. Marta Alts MA Childrens Book illustration

Course oVerView
Our course is practice-based, exploring varieties of performance at the cutting-edge of performance-making, including live and performance art, as well as innovations within traditional theatre such as new writing, multimedia and interdisciplinary performance. This focus encourages you to develop both as a researcher and performance-maker through an exploration of the relationship between theatrical innovation and the development of ideas and theoretical understanding. The integration of theory with practice is central to our teaching. The course seeks to blur the traditional distinctions between theory and practice: ideas are developed, tested and articulated by and through creative work. Taught sessions integrate critical analysis with practice-based exploration so that the combination of emphasis on process and performance, alongside theoretical and philosophical approaches, encourages you to be flexible, dynamic and informed theatre practitioners. Modules introduce a range of performance methodologies and theoretical understanding. These include: an engagement with critical and performance theories; new writing in theatre; an exploration of the work of the solo performer and the position of the self within performance; intercultural performance and the influence of non-Western performance making; and innovations in live and performance art. Critical theories will be deployed in relation to contemporary texts and, wherever possible, to new live work in dance, art, physical theatre, and/or devised performance.

Core Modules
Critical theory and Performance Practice This module introduces ideas from critical theory in relation to the innovative practices in 20th century and contemporary performance. Familiar concepts in mainstream criticism on theatre and performance (such as authorial agency, representation, character, identity, culture and meaning) will be reconsidered in relation to some major strands of critical theory. self-referential Practices This module will explore self-referential practice through critical investigations of key terminology related to notions of the self, such as subjectivity, identity and autobiography with reference to contemporary performance and live art. Self-referential practices are predominantly concerned with culturally and historically determined representations of the self and ways in which these will be challenged via strategies of resistance. The course will examine autobiographical texts in relation to actual written scripts as well as a performers/artists body as autobiographical materiality, paying specific attention to gender, sex, culture, ethnicity, class and age. Performance Cultures This module will explore the role of culture in performance-making. This could, indicatively, include a focus such as the relationship and tensions between Western and non-Western theatre cultures, at both a theoretical and practical level, or the impact of competing notions of culture on the performance process. This may include: a consideration of postcolonial performancemaking its ethics and implications; an examination of Orientalism in contemporary theatre; cultural memory; and cultural politics in performance. This module will consider the ethical considerations relevant to working between cultures and the critical tensions that have arisen from them.

new Practices This module focuses on the detailed study of emergent performance work by attempting to identify and explore new performance work at the cutting-edge of experimentation. This might include new(er) performance modes, such as live art, multimedia work, biotechnology performance, digital art, site-specific events and dance theatre practices, alongside the work of appropriate companies and practitioners producing work at the time of module delivery. You will engage with current practice and theory as much as possible, in terms of seeing live examples and researching current critical address to these outputs. Major Project You may specialise in any area that our Department is able to supervise. Your project can take one of three forms: a publicly presented piece of practice, accompanied by a written critical evaluation; a series of assessed workshop investigations alongside a critical evaluation; or a 20,000 word Dissertation.

student ProFile I have found the MA in Contemporary Theatre thoroughly enjoyable and challenging. I was initially attracted to the course design; it offered new and exciting fields of study, and opportunities to develop as a theatre practitioner and potential researcher. The course facilities are excellent and the Department keeps abreast of every new innovation, and this is reflected in the interests of the staff and their research. The emphasis is very much on personal development, and individual research is actively encouraged. Ive discovered a whole new world of research: new theorists and theories, and a whole new kick-start to my life. My horizons have been expanded and my understanding of performance as a study and a practice widened, taking me into a greater understanding of my subject than I had ever expected. I certainly did not imagine, a year ago, that it would lead to me embarking on a PhD, which I am now undertaking at Anglia Ruskin. simon Bell MA Contemporary theatre

student ProFile Taking the MA in Creative Writing is, without doubt, one of the best decisions I have made in recent years. The MA has been pivotal to my development as an early career writer. It has provided me with a core set of skills on which to build, and feedback to enable me to refine my work to find its hard, bright edge. One of the most valuable aspects of the course has been the opportunity for me to develop my interest in art and writing.

The real-world demands of teaching and the close support offered by school staff have made the abstract pedagogy lectures real and have helped me to improve my professional practice, as well as teaching me the unstated facts about how school communities work in our society.

Our course will introduce learners to, and develop their skills in, the uses of qualitative audience research in the conception and design of factual programming. It will show how such research is used to engender effects on audiences, whether in terms of awareness, more substantial knowledge, attitude or behaviour. It will look at successful models of expository programming drawn from a range of documentaries, video and broadcast campaigns, marketing-related programming and educational and training programming, and work to a deduction of the ways in which the content, narrative structure and creative elements of such programmes have achieved their effects. From such analysis, you will construct your own shared models of the ways in which design and effect optimally relate. You will also look at models of how supporting web-delivered materials can be used to reinforce, supplement or provide follow-up for programming and, again, produce deductive models of good practice against an agreed range of critical parameters.

Major Project: Production You will produce a viable programme pitch, with a realistic budget, and make the pitch to real-world commissioners and other funders. You will produce a high-quality programme or series of short films. dissertation Your 10,000 word Dissertation will enable you to draw together all you have learned, underpinned with original research into an aspect of production of most interest to you.

AssessMent
You will be assessed in terms of your competences in designing and implementing audience research; your application of such research to programme design; your ability to modify design in the light of developmental testing of work-in-progress; and your uses of feedback from the completed programming, to modify and enhance your own research and production processes. Assessment will be of reflective written accounts which show both your methodology and your ability to identify, analyse and evaluate the strengths and any weaknesses of your approaches. These written accounts will be in the form of journals in which you will describe and analyse your work at all stages of preproduction, production and follow-up.

Core Modules
Audiences and effects Who are you talking to? This module shows how qualitative audience research can help ensure that your programme will be truly effective. From research to screen: 1 Here you will learn how to use your knowledge of your audiences to design and produce targeted programming. You will make a variety of short films. the Business of Production This module looks in detail at the macro- and micro-economics of production: at sources of funding, and at ways of managing your programme budgets to best effect. From research to screen: 2 You will produce more complex programming, with a particular emphasis on maximising spends to achieve the greatest effects, in terms of communication, on your target audiences.

This exciting course offers you the opportunity to explore a range of films (mainstream, experimental, international, past and present), and to discuss many of the key critical debates, concepts approaches and contexts that are important to this subject. Our study facilities are outstanding, with an expanding collection of books, journals and films in our campus library. There are several designated screening facilities on-campus with DVD, video and 16mm projection facilities. We enjoy strong and productive links with the cinemas in Cambridge (mainstream and arthouse), providing opportunities for work placements and participation in special industry events, such as the internationally renowned Cambridge Film Festival. Our course draws upon the expertise of distinguished scholars of film with strong research profiles in a range of areas. Core modules will cover key developments in theory, history and technology, and topics may include: cinema and the transnational; cinema, sexuality and the post-human; cinema and the visual arts; the new extremism: and contemporary European cinema.

Cinema and the transnational This module enables close study of those films, film-makers and film-making contexts that exist outside Hollywood. It involves a focus on up to four regional film-making contexts (African, Latin American, Middle East and Asian cinemas), and considers both local conditions and relationships with other cinematic environments. The idea of the transnational offers a useful approach to understanding the success or otherwise of certain so-called national cinemas and film-makers on the global stage, and to their investigations of issues of identity. The exploration of transnational activity in cinema includes a critical address to the cross-border travel of directors and stars, research into new funding projects that draw on a range of sources, and the proliferation of film festivals and technological advancements that give rise to exciting and creative collaborations. Global power politics are addressed, as are themes such as the relationship between cinema and political conflict. Cinema, sexuality and the Post-human This module addresses the issue of the post-human body in contemporary cinema, positing gender, corporeal materiality, sexuality and politics as volatile terms useful in defining and disrupting traditional notions of agency, volition and self-representation. In what sense can these terms be important toward thinking a future for the body, gender and sexuality? This question is addressed through two streams: the representation of the post-human in cinema (with a special emphasis on horror, science and technology) and the idea of spectators as post-human. The module will involve analyses of films which trouble both the gender of the spectator and representations of gender and bodies as stable. It will draw on theorists such as Gilles Deleuze, Rosi Braidotti, and Judith Halberstam. the new extremism: Contemporary european Cinema This module explores the so-called new extremism that is a defining feature of a growing number of contemporary European films, considering the controversies surrounding the depiction of explicit sexuality and violence in contemporary European cinema.

Core Modules
the Projected image: Cinema and the Visual Arts This module addresses the interaction between cinema and the visual arts in an attempt to uncover some affinities between the two areas by looking at common themes and approaches. It examines the critical, aesthetic and historical issues that have shifted practitioners in the traditional visual arts (painting, sculpture) towards cinema, and film-makers toward the visual arts and the gallery as an exhibition space. You will have the opportunity to consider how the influence of visual art has informed the work of film-makers like Carl Dreyer, Michelangelo Antonioni and Derek Jarman, and how cinema has informed artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall and Andy Warhol. Topics for discussion include: cinema and landscape; tableau and cinema; cinema and colour; the relationship between the still and moving photographic image; avant-garde film; and the role of artist film and video.

You will consider how these films implicate the spectator in complex and uncomfortable ways, problematising notions of visual pleasure and calling into question theoretical assumptions about the primacy of the gaze. The module considers how the films of the new extremism attempt to rethink notions of cinematic realism through their address to time, duration and aesthetics of sensation. The module will include discussion of such contemporary film-makers as Catherine Breillat, Bruno Dumont, Gaspar No, Michael Haneke and Lars Von Trier. independent learning Module and research Methods Module In consultation with our MA convenor, you may replace one module with an independent learning module. This module will enable you to work independently on topics of your own choosing, within the area of film studies. This independent project may take the form of a critical essay.

student ProFile I had studied comparative literature in my undergraduate degree and had experience in publication, but I wanted to change direction and do a Masters in film. I would recommend the MA Film Studies course at Anglia Ruskin, as the modules offer a very broad range of films and different theories that challenge established frameworks of viewing them. I was very impressed by the module structures and teaching from the first class I had. The classes were always very interactive, the discussions very stimulating. During my time at the University I have decided to do a PhD and to pursue a further career in teaching at university level. I am extremely grateful to the staff in the Department for motivating me to focus on my future ambitions and enhance my capabilities. Their guidance and support have always been excellent, effective and encouraging. Gzde naiboglu MA Film studies

student ProFile After completing my undergraduate degree in biotechnology back in India, I knew that I wanted to focus my career in forensics so I began to research into various universities that offered the course in the UK. Out of all of the courses I looked at, the MSc in Forensic Science at Anglia Ruskin seemed to have the best reputation. Its an extremely practical course with great facilities, including real crime scenes, gene sequencing and other DNA analytical equipment. The use of case studies has enabled me to put the theoretical skills that I have learnt into practice by examining crime scenes and analysing the evidence collected. I am confident that this course will help me to secure a solid career in the field of forensics when I graduate. Jais George MsC Forensic science

student ProFile I came to the UK to study from China, and I was initially attracted to Cambridge because of its worldwide cultural reputation. The city is very diverse and has a lot to offer. I want to be a manager in the future so I chose MA International Business at Anglia Ruskin because it covers transnational and multinational business, which is particularly relevant to me as an international student. I have found the theoretical approach to key business issues and disciplines particularly useful. The teaching and support staff at Anglia Ruskin are very friendly and patient. If I have any questions I always just ask and they are happy to help. ling quan Huang MA international Business (dual Award)

student ProFile I started the MSc in International Management Practice in January, having previously completed a PG Cert in Biotechnology at another university in the South East of England. I didnt want to wait until September to continue my studies so I was largely attracted to Anglia Ruskin because they offered New Year enrolments. I aim to become a management consultant and this course has enabled me to expand into different areas and to diversify my skill set. Although the course is full-time, teaching only takes place during two full days a week so I have been able to work part-time as a research assistant, which has enabled me to support my studies, as well as gain valuable work experience. The University itself has a much more personalised feel compared to the other educational institutions that I have attended. The support systems are excellent, especially the international student advisers who have been extremely helpful, and my course lecturers have been very friendly and well versed in their subject areas. Overall, I have had a really positive experience here so far. tabish zaman Msc international Management Practice

core modules
globalisation, social welfare and social policy This module considers the relationship between globalisation and social welfare and social policy at a micro, mezzo and macro level. It considers how globalisation impacts on social welfare provision and social policy planning in different country and societal contexts, from a political, social, economic, technological and educational viewpoint. We will evaluate and critically analyse whether there are universal values and a universal knowledge base which can be relied upon to provide a response towards overcoming global problems or whether they are, or need to be, culturally and locally specific. This module also looks at how individuals, social networks and organisations deal with providing support for those in greatest need and how this can be translated to work within an international arena from both a statutory and voluntary/ non-governmental organisation provider perspective. Finally, we will consider the role of the social welfare and social policy worker within a globalised world and critically debate universal standards of practice and transferable skills and adaptation.

comparative social policy and social welfare This module looks at comparative issues concerning social policy and social welfare in the international context. Areas such as migration, poverty and social exclusion, youth work, street living and community work will be analysed across a variety of countries and regions. Within the context of specific case studies, you will apply the principles of comparative analysis and critically evaluate methodological issues which arise from comparative analysis. Further emphasis will be placed on the critical evaluation of theoretical perspectives of international social welfare and social policy in the context of case studies. You will develop your own comparative analysis regarding issues of international social welfare and social policy, and enhance your skills in the theoretical and methodological evaluation of literature regarding comparative analysis.

student profile I was told that the LPC was hard work it is! However, the supportive staff and professional working environment are great preparation for the real world of law. If you combine this with high-quality teaching, specifically allocated small group rooms (with computer/ printer) and own text books (all of which are provided) it makes for a challenging but achievable course. The main focus is on developing theory into practice, having a safe environment to practise in and having valuable feedback to constantly improve. Senior staff have ensured that CVs and covering letters make an impact, and invited firms have given introductory talks about the skills they are looking for. My advice is be ready for hard work, keep up-to-date no matter how much work you feel there is to do (or however many chapters to read).

Our Master of Business Administration (MBA) course has been developed to meet the needs of middle/senior managers in the running of their businesses, and to facilitate their progression to higher-level roles within their organisation. Managers need to be aware of issues, able to analyse their potential outcomes and consequences, and decide how to react. They do not have to be an expert in all areas of business, but they need a general awareness of which specialist facilities and services exist, and how they can assist in carrying out their role. Thus, MBA courses have a far more generalist and strategic approach than those Masters courses focused on specific subject areas. This philosophy is followed by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) in their Subject Benchmark Statements. Our course follows their recommendations in its focus on the advanced study of organisations and the dynamic, global context in which they operate. Unique to our MBA is the depth of emphasis on a strong practical and professional orientation to the curriculum and learning styles, which has been developed over our 15 year history. Our MBA has a strong reputation for providing managers with the foundation necessary for handling complex issues in a turbulent business environment. Leaders need to be challenging and thoughtful, analytical and innovative, and these are important elements of our course.

One of the main focuses for the design of this module has been the further development of relevant employability and professional skills. Human resource management practice This module will introduce you to the key concepts and policies underlying Human Resource Management (HRM) in organisations. Thus, the module looks at techniques, procedures and systems available to managers in order to enhance performance, to achieve excellence and to align corporate and commercial goals. research methods for managers This module provides you with the appropriate knowledge, skills and abilities you will need to effectively carry out a piece of small-scale business or management research.

This integrative approach will enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of the issues facing an organisation and the implications of those issues for its wellbeing. strategic management This module explores the rich field of strategic management and how strategic analysis and formulation contribute to an organisations performance. The module is integrative in nature and provides practically relevant ideas and frameworks that facilitate strategy design and implementation. international business management This module describes the driving forces behind international business and their impact on organisations, managers and individuals. It explores possible corporate strategic responses to international business conditions and exposes managers to issues and tensions in business operations and relationships across national cultures.

I have young children so it was important that the travel time was short (I live in Cambridge) in order to get the most from my time on-campus. The culture within the Cambridge School of Art is very supportive and contact with lecturers is frequent. There is an engagement with the art world, current art practices and theory, which is invaluable, with many visiting artists coming in.

Assessment
There will be an assessment at the half-way point, where one of the external examiners will consider your progress towards becoming a music therapist. The final oral assessment will involve presenting in-depth casework to two external examiners who are active in the clinical field. Assessment takes place against clear criteria and learning outcomes. Assessed activities range from formal essay-writing to experiential learning, group learning and clinical improvisation and fieldwork, including clinical placements. You will also be assessed through self-analysis and reflection in discussions with your personal tutor.

Investing in our course will enable you to gain a qualification that is approved by the Health Professions Council (HPC). This is a legal requirement for music therapists in the UK. Our course is also recognised by the Association of Professional Music Therapists. Staff team members hold offices in this association and in other national allied health-professional bodies. There are strong links with other practitioners, such as psychiatrists and psychotherapists, and staff are employed in local National Health Service (NHS) facilities as well as by our University, making for a strong professional profile. We have also established professional collaborations with institutions across the world, providing a rich interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary milieu.

student profile I wanted to train to become a music therapist and was particularly interested in courses offering a psychotherapeutically informed approach to the work. I was also interested in a course that would provide a variety of different work placements. The course offered by Anglia Ruskin University met both these criteria and when I was applying it had just received a positive Health Professions Council endorsement. As a Cambridge resident with two children attending schools in the area, the close locality of the campus was a deciding factor and the course has met and exceeded many of my expectations. I benefited from plenty of hands-on experience throughout, both in the form of placements and through a wide range of workshops run by peer groups, experienced therapists and local agencies, as well as national and international professionals who are involved in the work of the Department. katy bell mA music therapy

Public health is a discipline with fast-changing priorities and research developments. This subject involves many aspects of health, including service provision, trends in population morbidity from diseases and addictions, public safety and other social issues. In a modern global environment, national, European and international factors can all affect population health and wellbeing. Social determinants of public health, including health inequalities, are now of prime importance and policies such as Choosing Health (2004) and the Darzi Review (2008) in the UK, and the World Health Organization (WHO) elsewhere, provide challenges to existing services to fight the current threats to the health of society. There is increasing recognition that public health requires a multidisciplinary approach taking account of the wider social, political and economic factors that influence health. Our course puts emphasis on the collaborative and multi-dimensional approaches integral to working with individuals and communities to improve public health.

essential issues in public Health policy On this module you will develop a critical understanding of public health. You will be encouraged to engage in critical debate using historical and theoretical perspectives to examine major public health issues and policy developments. You will be encouraged to draw on and share your own experience to inform your understanding of contemporary public health. Emphasis will be placed on collaborative work in evaluating current policies and practices as well as in generating new ideas. Social inequalities, particularly the widening health gap, are a key theme in developing and developed nations. You will have the opportunity to apply generalised knowledge to specific areas of public health policy and practice, and to reflect critically on the implications of policy interventions across disciplines and agencies. epidemiological research methods This module will teach you to use statistical and research techniques to manage the gathering, presentation and interpretation of public health data. Epidemiology is an underlying feature of all our course modules, but this module will provide the practical skills needed to interpret data, the opportunity to explore and review the research process (research protocols, literature review, design, methodology and presentation of findings) and the skills to evaluate public health research data. strategic management and commissioning On this module you will become familiar with the planning and types of various community assessment methods that inform priority setting and equable service provision. It will introduce the principles and methods of partnership working, leadership and change management. This module will offer the opportunity to develop leadership skills within an inter-professional context in order to achieve public health improvement. It is aimed at developing skills in carrying out population needs assessments and setting local priorities and commissioning in health, local government and third sector services. These skills can be extrapolated to countries outside the European Union. Our module is multidisciplinary in content, drawing on sociological, behavioural, psychological and contemporary public health perspectives with students from various disciplines sharing practical applied experience.

core modules
Addictions and communicable disease management This module will assist you in developing skills for presenting detailed clinical information on particular conditions. On this module you will develop a critical understanding of two contrasting types of widespread forms of public health challenge: those presented by addictions (alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, food etc) and the public health issues associated with infectious disease management within the UK, Europe and globally. The social, economic, cultural and political determinants affecting the health and wellbeing of populations around the world in relation to addictions and infections will be addressed. Critical comparisons will be made between developed and developing world strategies, the influence of multinational markets, pandemic and epidemic management and central and local initiatives.

student profile With ambitions to start my own business in English teaching publishing, I was excited to discover the MA in Publishing at Anglia Ruskin University and have been thoroughly pleased with the level of tuition and the amazing opportunities I have been offered during the year. Not only are the lectures conducted by current publishing professionals who have invaluable insight into the field, but the master classes are given by famous names who have inspired me with their experience and spirit. I have been lucky enough to become involved in setting up a professional publishing society which has put me in direct contact with the publishing community and ensured I gain in-depth industry knowledge. Work experience at Cambridge University Press (a highly sought-after activity) has allowed me real-world practice of my university learning. The course leader and all the lecturers have been on-hand at all times for academic and professional support, something that generally makes the difference between a good course and a great course, and I have made firm friendships with my peers. elizabeth Jones mA publishing

student profile Choosing postgraduate study was an issue about the profession rather than the course for me. I wanted to train and then work as a social worker, so I was looking at the course as something offering me the opportunity to do that. The University had a good reputation for this course and I felt happy to entrust them with my training. I had had a meeting with the course tutor, Judy Hicks, before I formally applied, and she was so positive, supportive and professional that I had no hesitation in applying. I have enjoyed all aspects of the course. I feel that I have learned a great deal and, as a mature student returning to study after 14 years in the workplace, felt that my critical faculties have been turned on again. I have worked with a real variety of people in health and social care and have learnt from all of them. simon gray mA social work

Potential projects are available in electronic control systems, image processing, audio-modelling, power systems and related controllers, with new trends in renewable energy. The research is normally undertaken using a holistic approach to electronic systems modelling, control-algorithm development, digitalcontroller design, controller optimisation and implementation. The systems can sometimes include artificial intelligence (neural networks, fuzzy logic). The research is mainly applied and, in many instances, is relevant to recent or existing industrial collaborations with companies like John Henry Group, Goodrich Corporation, Sustainable Technology Solutions Ltd, etc. The recent work undertaken by our group members includes the coordination of a European FP6 project on renewable energy integrated control. This is the topic of highest interest to the group, including photovoltaic and wind-renewable energy sources, combined with energy-storage systems and connection to the power grid. Our group has experienced academics (one professor, one principal lecturer, and three senior lecturers) plus industrial collaborators. Recent achievements include: wards for three research papers a ve invited international short courses/ fi tutorials, delivered at prestigious events 0 research papers published by the 2 group in the last four years he group leader is associate editor t of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and was general chairman of IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (ISIE), Cambridge, 2008 a esearch book published: Neural and r Fuzzy Logic Control of Drives and Power Systems, Elsevier, Oxford, UK, 2002. Holistic modelling of the systems is performed using software such as Matlab, C++, Handel-C, C-Synthesiser, VHDL. The design and Rapid hardware prototyping of the controllers mostly targets Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and is achieved directly from the design environment (Xilinx, DK5) using existing EDA packages. Facilities for experimental work on hardware controllers are available (a range of FPGA development boards) along with photovoltaic panel, battery energy storage, power converter, oscilloscopes, measurement/monitoring equipment AC/DC machines test rig.

student profile
I completed my PhD in English in 2009; my thesis was entitled Masculinity in the Novels of John Irving and Philip Roth. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a research student and value the rounded research experience Anglia Ruskins English Department afforded me. The Department was very supportive, providing me with funding to give research papers at several external conferences and giving me experience teaching undergraduates. There is a lively research culture with a seminar programme which postgraduates are encouraged to contribute to. My two supervisors were very encouraging, offering me all the guidance and criticism I needed to complete my thesis and get through my viva. Beyond the Department, the University has offered me ample opportunities for training, all of which I have found valuable. Alex Hobbs phd in english

student profile
I finished my BA in Fine Art Practice at Goldsmiths College, London, in the 1990s, where I practised painting alongside contemporary critical theory. I went on to do my Masters, also at Goldsmiths College, and took some time afterwards to work independently in my studio, establishing myself as a practitioner and focusing on very specific concerns and interests in my paintings. During this period I was very active in my practical research. I gained insight into my working processes and wanted to expand further, incorporating theory and writing as part of my work. With my priorities firmly in place I always knew I was going to apply for a PhD in painting and it was just a matter of finding the right university. Last September, that opportunity presented itself at Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University. The programme covers both practical and theoretical aspects of my research and provides professional support and a research culture critical to my academic and professional development. I have been given great opportunities and the facilities to fully embrace my research interests, with access to the most up-to-date critical debates and information in the field of contemporary art and philosophy.

We offer research degrees in a range of topics linked to staff expertise in the fields of health and social care. Our staff are recognised as experts in their fields, and have produced a number of influential books and journal articles and present at local, national and international conferences. The interdisciplinary nature of research fields offers a rich and stimulating programme of study for staff and students, and is an integral part of our Faculty of Health & Social Care. Our Faculty provides a creative and energetic environment for undertaking research that addresses real issues across the full spectrum of health and social care. Research in our Faculty unites academics, researchers, postgraduate students, research users, and service users in a shared community of enquiry. Our Facultys reputation for undertaking high-quality, meaningful and timely research continues to grow. In 2006 our Faculty was awarded recognition status by the Economic and Social Research Council for our delivery of research degrees in health and social policy. One of our primary goals is to expand and develop research and scholarly activities across a number of health and social care themes. We currently focus on three main core areas: childhood in society health & wellbeing and communities social inclusion & participation. Our Faculty currently supports around 50 research degree students in their studies towards an MPhil, PhD or PrD in Health and Social Care. Students enter our programmes as part of a cohort, normally at the start of the academic year (September/October). Our MPhil or PhD programmes can be undertaken via fulltime or part-time study, but our PrD is only available via part-time study at present.

While there is potential to transfer from our MPhil to our PhD programme (or vice-versa), the conceptual differences between our PhD and PrD mean that, at present, you cannot transfer between the two. Please see our Part-time Catalogue for further information about Professional Doctorates. Our MPhil and PhD programmes require you to undertake an in-depth research study that can relate specifically to your own practice but, alternatively, you can relate to the wider sphere of your practice, or perhaps to theory underpinning that practice. Our supervisory team will consist of an experienced first supervisor with responsibility for overseeing your studies, and at least one other supervisor. We will set up regular supervisory meetings with you to develop and implement your agreed research project. Your needs will be identified by the use of a Skills Diagnostic tool and Personal Development Planning (PDP) and learning contract will be formulated in conjunction with this. Your progress will be monitored annually and University and Faculty training programmes will be provided. Our research programme periodically offers three year, fully-funded, studentships. We offer advice on external and internal funding if you are considering our research degrees. There are also funds available within our Faculty for which you may apply.

Patrick Chaplin achieved his PhD in 2007 under the supervision of Dr. Rohan McWilliam and Professor John Shepherd. His subject was the history of darts in the early twentieth century. Despite being one of the most popular of modern pastimes, darts has never been studied before and Dr. Chaplin uncovered its intriguing history. This entirely original piece of research was published as a monograph by Manchester University Press in its prestigious series on the history of popular culture in 2009, and has begun to receive excellent reviews in scholarly journals. Dr. Chaplin is now a research fellow of our University and is writing and researching further aspects of the history of the game.

student profile
I submitted my PhD in Sociology, entitled Racial Inequality in the UK Fire and Rescue Service, in March 2010. During my time as a research student in the Faculty of Arts Law & Social Sciences at Anglia Ruskin I have been able to engage in and become a part of the research environment. The Faculty has a multidisciplinary seminar programme and organises internal lectures in which research students take an active part. I have been granted funding to present papers at various academic conferences. There have been plenty of opportunities to meet with fellow research students and share the PhD experience. Opportunities to teach undergraduate students have developed my teaching skills and my supervisors have been invaluable in providing support and encouragement throughout the whole process. sharifa begum phd in sociology

At our University, 15 credits is notionally equivalent to 150 hours of student activity time. Examples of activities include attendance at lectures, private study, tutorials and assessment activities. Studies are packaged into modules. Each module is carefully assessed and is given a credit value based on the relevant number of activity hours. A credit value is assigned to every course of study. A Masters degree, for example, has 180 credits.

AccreditAtion of prior leArning (Apl)


Our University is proud to offer you mobility in your studies by recognising learning you may have completed elsewhere before applying to Anglia Ruskin. It is important that you should identify any relevant prior learning when you apply to our University, as it may impact upon modules which you wish to study. Should your previous study relate to modules on the course you wish to undertake, our University will consider your application for APL. Where this relates to learning completed through an earlier course of study, this is called Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL), and where learning has been achieved through relevant work or experience, this is referred to as Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). All APL applications must be approved before you commence a course.

AccreditAtion of prior certificAted leArning (Apcl)


APCL relates to learning completed through an earlier course of study. If youve previously completed a course which is relevant to your proposed course at our University, you should make this clear when you apply for admission. To be eligible for consideration in this way, you must be able to submit certification which shows your successfully completed assessment for that course. Learning must be current, i.e. completed within the last five years. Simple participation in a course, or an attendance certificate, is not sufficient.

different costs
You may face costs if applying for admission with prior learning. These can vary depending on whether your application is for APCL or APEL or a combination of the two. Costs will be on a sliding scale in line with the volume and level of the credits for which you are applying.

furtHer informAtion
To accredit prior learning requires care, precision and fairness on our part. For this reason, we set down criteria applying to everyone equally. Our Contact Centre can direct you to specialist advice in your subject area to ensure your APCL or APEL claim is compliant. Alternatively, if you wish to find out more about this process to decide whether it is applicable to you, we are happy to offer advice and answer any questions that either you or your employer may have.

AccreditAtion of prior eXperientiAl leArning (Apel)


It is important to understand that our Universitys APEL process does not award academic credit for experience alone, but for learning which can be shown to have been achieved through that experience. You are required to prepare an individual case for the proposed credit arising from your learning experiences. This normally means that you will receive support in the preparation of a portfolio in which your claim is justified in detail and supported by relevant evidence. In addition, you may be asked to complete some written work and/or to attend an interview with an admissions tutor. The portfolio of evidence is then submitted to our University for assessment and the possible award of academic credit.
