                            [body] => PhD Study in the UK What is a PhD? A PhD is a research degree and is the highest award available at universities in the UK. Study is based around a substantial research project on an area of academic interest, typically up to 100,000 words in length, written as a thesis which then must be defended in an oral examination in front of a panel of experts. Students are assigned a supervisor and the duration of a PhD is typically three years full-time and six years part-time. Very few research degrees feature taught modules, and as such a student is expected to take more responsibility for their work and schedule. PhD Entry Requirements. UK universities are free to admit anyone to a PhD programme, with admission generally conditional on the prospective student having successfully completed an undergraduate degree with at least upper second-class honours, as well as a masters degree. English language ability will need to be proved and a minimum IELTS score of 7.0 is generally required. PhD Research Proposal. A research proposal (example) is required by all students when applying to study a PhD. The proposal should clearly address the research you wish to undertake, how you will do it, and why it is important. The proposal must be accepted by a panel of experts before your programme can begin. Other types of Research Degree. - MPhil (Master of Philosophy). If you wish to study a PhD, you may first need to begin an MPhil and then transfer to a PhD programme after 12-18 months. An MPhil is also a qualification in its own right and is generally thesis-only, lasting one year full-time and two years part-time. The thesis must present the results of a study and research and be a maximum of 60,000 words. Students choose to study an MPhil if the proposed research has insufficient scope for a full PhD. - MRes (Master of Research). An MRes is an advanced postgraduate research degree within the areas of art, humanities and social sciences. Some PhDs require an MRes qualification before beginning a PhD proper, and the student is required to complete a 40,000 word dissertation. An MRes is a good test to see if you enjoy conducting your research without fully committing to and funding a full PhD. - Professional Doctorate. Professional doctorates are similar to a PhD, but are intended to advance professional practice, rather than improve academic ability. Common professional doctorates include law, education, business, engineering and medicine. How much does a PhD cost? Funding and researching a PhD can be expensive, with EU students paying up to £6,000 per year, and international students more. It is rare for a PhD student to not be supported by some form of bursary, grant or scholarship though, and many universities and research councils provide monetary support for part or all of a PhD programme. How do I apply for a PhD? Once you have decided on an area of research and have looked into how you will fund your study, there are a number of documents required when submitting your application. They can include: Academic transcripts Academic references Personal statement Research proposal (example) Students will also need to identify a supervisor who will oversee their PhD.

With 17 universities in the top 100 of the QS ranking, 11 in the top 100 of the THE ranking and 8 in the top 100 of the Shanghai (ARWU) ranking, the UK has more top-ranked universities than any other European country. In fact, the only country to beat the UK in global university league tables is the USA. Unlike the USA, however, all of the UK's top universities are publicly funded. Their place in global rankings reflects substantial ongoing investment in higher education. Do rankings matter for Masters degrees? International rankings use all sorts of metrics to assess universities and they aren't all equally relevant to postgraduate study. That's why we've put together a guide to university rankings for Masters students. Of course, these are global rankings, not postgraduate rankings. This means they reflect the broad performance and reputation of universities, rather than their specific expertise in the areas you might be considering for a Masters. There isn't currently a global ranking of universities for postgraduate study. But there are ways to look more closely at the factors that matter most to Masters students. . . UK University Rankings by Subject. Academic specialism is vital to postgraduate study. As a Masters student you'll be working at a much more advanced level. This means that you'll need access to the best facilities and the expertise of instructors who are leaders in their field. One way to check this is to see how well a university does in rankings for your subject. Universities at the top of these leagues will be the best at producing high quality research and attracting top academics. This will be reflected in the quality of their postgraduate courses. Times Higher Education produces a series of international league tables based on subject expertise, and it’s worth taking a look at their World University Rankings by Subject. Search for a Masters in the UK. Rankings are a great way to find your way around a country's universities and narrow your search. But the most important factor in choosing a Masters in the UK will be the content of the course itself. That's why our course listings include so much information about different programmes. Why not take a look? Domestic rankings of UK universities. The global rankings discussed above are great if you want to see which UK universities are amongst the best in the world. But there are also several rankings that look specifically at universities within the UK. Many are published by media organisations including the Telegraph, Times, Sunday Times and Guardian newspapers. Most of these rankings aren't postgraduate specific. They include criteria such as a student ratios, satisfaction and completion rates that are important, but may not reflect the specific experiences of Masters students. Looking for more information about postgraduate study in the UK? Has the impressive performance of UK universities in global rankings convinced you to study a Masters there?

We have recently formed a strategic partnership in education, research and innovation with the Technical University of Munich, one of Germany’s most international and entrepreneurial universities, producing highly ranked research, like Imperial, in science, engineering and medicine. As part of the partnership, Imperial and TUM have launched a 'Joint Academy of Doctoral Studies' with the aim of co-developing cross-disciplinary clusters of PhD students who will have access to world-leading academic supervisors and state-of-the art facilities at both institutions. The first round of the programme will focus on the theme of 'Artificial Intelligence, Healthcare and Robotics'. Find out more about the Joint Academy of Doctoral Studies and apply Print Email

The first students enrolled in January 1971.[13] The university administration is now based at Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, in Buckinghamshire, but has administration centres in other parts of the United Kingdom. It also has a presence in other European countries. The university awards undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as non-degree qualifications such as diplomas and certificates or continuing education units. With more than 175,000 students enrolled,[5] including around 34% of new undergraduates aged under 25 and more than 7,700 overseas students, it is the largest academic institution in the United Kingdom (and one of the largest in Europe) by student number, and qualifies as one of the world's largest universities. Since it was founded, more than 2 million students have studied its courses.[14] The Open University is one of only two[a] United Kingdom higher education institutions to gain accreditation in the United States of America by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education,[15] an institutional accrediting agency, recognised by the United States Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.[16] The BSc (Honours) Computing and IT course is accredited by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT and quality assured by the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE).[17] The OU won the Teaching Excellence and Digital Innovation categories in The Guardian University Awards 2018.[18] In 2018–19 the OU had a £2.77 billion impact on the UK economy.[19] It also produces more CEOs than any other UK university, including universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, University College London and the London School of Economics.[20] Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell, broadcaster Anna Ford and actress Glenda Jackson are among a host of well-known names who have tutored for the OU.[21][22] Contents. 1 History 2 Organisation and administration 2.1 Staff 2.1.1 Credit union 2.2 Academic divisions 2.2.1 Faculties 2.2.2 Business school 2.3 Singapore Institute of Management Open University Centre 3 Academic profile 3.1 Teaching methods 3.2 Assessment methods 3.3 Qualifications 3.3.1 Undergraduate 3.3.1.1 Open degree 3.3.1.2 Other qualifications 3.3.2 Postgraduate 3.4 Degree ceremonies 3.5 Rankings 4 Research 4.1 OpenScience Observatories 5 Students 5.1 Demographics 5.2 Courses 5.3 Fees and financial assistance 5.4 Qualifications awarded 5.5 Open University Students Association 6 Notable current and former academics 7 Notable alumni, graduates and honorees 8 In fiction 9 Partnerships 9.1 Armed Forces 9.2 Partner institutions 9.3 Doctoral training partnerships 9.3.1 The Grand Union 9.3.2 Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training 9.3.3 Imperial-Cambridge-Open Centre for Doctoral Training 10 See also 11 Notes 12 References 13 Further reading 14 External links History[edit]. The Royal Charter of The Open University The Open University was founded by the Labour government under Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Wilson was a strong advocate, using the vision of Michael Young. Planning commenced in 1965 under Minister of State for Education Jennie Lee, who established a model for the OU as one of widening access to the highest standards of scholarship in higher education, and set up a planning committee consisting of university vice-chancellors, educationalists and television broadcasters, chaired by Sir Peter Venables. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Assistant Director of Engineering at the time James Redmond, had obtained most of his qualifications at night school, and his natural enthusiasm for the project did much to overcome the technical difficulties of using television to broadcast teaching programmes. The Queen visits The Open University in 1979. Wilson envisaged The Open University as a major marker in the Labour Party's commitment to modernising British society. He believed that it would help build a more competitive economy while also promoting greater equality of opportunity and social mobility. The planned utilisation of television and radio to broadcast its courses was also supposed to link The Open University to the technological revolution underway, which Wilson saw as a major ally of his modernisation schemes. However, from the start Lee encountered widespread scepticism and even opposition from within and without the Labour Party, including senior officials in the Department of Education and Science (DES), her departmental head Anthony Crosland, the Treasury, ministerial colleagues, such as Richard Crossman and commercial broadcasters. The Open University was realised due to Lee's unflagging determination and tenacity in 1965–67, the steadfast support from Wilson, and the fact that the anticipated costs, as reported to Lee and Wilson by Arnold Goodman, seemed very modest. By the time the actual, much higher costs became apparent, it was too late to scrap the fledgling university.[23] The university was granted a royal charter by the Privy Council on 23 April 1969.[24] Organisation and administration[edit]. Staff[edit]. Walton Hall manor house, the vice-chancellor's office and the second oldest building on the OU Campus The majority of staff are part-time associate lecturers and, as of the 2009–10 academic year, almost 8,000 work for the OU.[25] There are also 1,286 (mostly full-time) salaried academic employees (central academics based at Walton Hall and staff tutors based in a variety of regional locations) who are research active and responsible for the production and presentation of teaching materials, 1,931 who are academic-related and 1,902 support staff (including secretaries and technicians).[26] Salaries are the OU's main cost—over £275 million for the 2009–2010 academic year.[26] In 2010 the OU became one of the Sunday Times' Best Places to Work in the Public Sector. Credit union[edit]. Open University Employees Credit Union is a savings and loans co-operative established by the university for staff in 1994. A member of the Association of British Credit Unions,[27] it is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the PRA. Ultimately, like the banks and building societies, members’ savings are protected against business failure by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.[28] Academic divisions[edit]. Faculties[edit]. Triple Crown accreditorsThe Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (United States)The Association of MBAs (United Kingdom)The EFMD Quality Improvement System (European Union) In 2016, the university reorganised its departments and now operates with the Faculties of Arts & Social Sciences (FASS); the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL); the faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); and the faculty of Wellbeing, Education, Languages and Sport (WELS). It also runs Open and Access programmes via PVC-Students, and programmes from Institute of Educational Technology (IET) via WELS. Business school[edit]. In 1982, Open University offered a course titled, "The Effective Manager", developed by a team that was led by Charles Handy. After the reported success of the course, Derek S. Pugh proposed the establishment of a business school. In 1988, the Open University Business School (OUBS) was founded by the Faculty of Management department, for which professor Andrew Thomson was appointed to head. Thomson's main goal was the offering of an MBA programme, which was eventually funded through a grant from the DES. In 1989, the first class of MBA students were enrolled.[29] The Open University Business School is accredited by the international accrediting bodies AACSB,[30] AMBA,[31] and EQUIS.[32] It was placed in the top 1% of UK business schools after having received Triple Crown accreditation.[33][34][35] Some selected rankings: The OU Business School's MBA programme was ranked 13th in the Financial Times’ global rankings of online and distance learning MBA providers which featured five European schools, four of which were in the UK.[36] Ranked fifth in the Global Online MBA Rankings by CEO Magazine and 1st for UK institutions (2019)[37] Ranked sixth in the world for the QS Distance Online MBA Rankings (2016)[38] Singapore Institute of Management Open University Centre[edit]. From 1992 to 2005, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) ran the Open University Degree Programme (OUDP), in collaboration with The Open University, United Kingdom (OUUK), which was re-named the Singapore Institute of Management's Open University Centre (SIM-OUC) as one of SIM's autonomous entity. In 2005, after SIM formed SIM University (UniSIM), it took over SIM-OUC students and granted those who graduated in 2006 a choice between a UniSIM or OUUK degree.[39] Academic profile[edit]. Teaching methods[edit]. The Open University in Belfast The OU uses a variety of methods for teaching, including written and audio materials, the Internet, disc-based software and television programmes on DVD. Course-based television broadcasts by the BBC, which started on 3 January 1971, ceased on 15 December 2006.[40] Materials comprise originally authored work by in-house and external academic contributors, and from third-party materials licensed for use by OU students. For most modules, students are supported by tutors ("associate lecturers") who provide feedback on their work and are generally available to them at face-to-face tutorials, by telephone, and/or on the Internet. A number of short courses worth ten credits are now available that do not have an assigned tutor but offer an online conferencing service (Internet forum) where help and advice is offered through conferencing "moderators". Perry C building in Open University Campus in Milton Keynes Some modules have mandatory day schools. Nevertheless, it is possible to be excused on the basis of ill-health (or other extenuating circumstances) and many courses have no mandatory face-to-face component. Similarly, some modules have traditionally offered week-long summer schools offering an opportunity for students to remove themselves from the general distractions of their life and focus on their study for a short time. Over the past[when?] ten years the university has adopted a policy of separating residential modules from distance-full-time taught modules. Exemption from attendance at residential schools, always as an Alternative Learning Experience (ALE), is sometimes available for disabled students and others who find it impossible to attend in person (See "Qualifications-Undergraduate" section.) For many years the OU produced television and radio programmes aimed at bringing learning to a wider audience. In its early years most of these were in the form of documentaries or filmed lectures. Latterly, most OU-associated programming was mainstream and broadcast in peak hours, including series such as Rough Science and "Battle of the Geeks", while older-style programming was carried in the BBC Learning Zone. In 2004 the OU announced it was to stop its late-night programmes on BBC Two, and the last programme was broadcast at 5.30am on 16 December 2006. The OU now plans to focus on semi-academic television programmes, such as many now broadcast on BBC Four. The Open University launched FutureLearn in December 2012 with a dozen UK university partners. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education review published in December 2015 found five areas of good practice and made three recommendations for improvement.[41] The English national survey of student satisfaction has twice put the Open University in first place. In October 2006, the OU joined the open educational resources movement with the launch of OpenLearn. A growing selection of current and past distance learning course materials will be released for free access, including downloadable versions for educators to modify (under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA licence), plus free collaborative learning-support tools. In the early 2000s, the OU researched the use of virtual worlds in teaching and learning, and had two main islands in Second Life.[42][43] In May 2009 these regions formed the basis of a case study[44] by Linden Lab, the company which owns Second Life. In mid-2010, the university led the list of contributing universities in the number of downloads of its material from the educational resources site iTunes U, with downloads of over 20 million.[45] Open University continues to adopt Moodle as the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) with their own team deploying custom plugins.[46][47] In 2013, the OU began a massive open online course (MOOC) platform called FutureLearn, which is the UK's largest provider of free online courses.[citation needed] Assessment methods[edit]. Robert Hooke building at Open University Campus in Milton Keynes Open University modules are often assessed using an equal weighting of examinations and coursework. The coursework component normally takes the form of between two and seven tutor marked assignments (TMAs) and, occasionally, may also include up to six multiple-choice or "missing word" 10-question interactive computer marked assignments (iCMAs). The examinable component is usually an invigilated three-hour paper regardless of the size of the module (although on some modules it can be up to three three-hour papers),[b] but an increasing number of modules instead have an EMA (End of Module Assessment) which is similar to a TMA, in that it is completed at home, but is regarded as an exam for grading purposes. Modules results are sometimes issued on a graded basis, consisting of pass grades 1 (threshold 85%, a distinction), 2 (70–84%), 3 (55–69%) & 4 (40–54%), and fail (below 40%). This grade is calculated as the lower of the overall continuous assessment score (OCAS) and overall examination score (OES). These grades can be weighted[48] according to their level, and combined to calculate the classification of a degree. An undergraduate degree will weight level 3 modules twice as much as level 2, and in postgraduate programmes all M level modules are equally weighted. Qualifications[edit]. Undergraduate[edit]. Open University modules have associated with them a number of Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) credits – usually 30 or 60 – depending on the quantity of the material in the module and a level (1, 2, 3, or 4) corresponding to the complexity, with 120 credits roughly equating to the year of study for a full-time student. Walton Hall, Milton Keynes The OU offers a large number of undergraduate qualifications, including certificates, diplomas, and bachelor's degrees, based on both level and quantity of study. An OU undergraduate degree requires 300 (or 360 for honours) CATS credits. Students are generally advised not to undertake more than 60 credits per year, meaning that an undergraduate degree will take typically six years to complete. With the exception of some degrees in fast moving areas (such as computing) there is generally no limit on the time which a student may take. Students need special permission to take more than 120 credits (equivalent to full-time study) at any time;[49] such permission is not usually granted.[citation needed] Originally the BA was the only undergraduate degree, and it was unnamed. The modern OU grants degrees of Bachelor of Arts (BA), Science (BSc), Laws (LLB) and Engineering (BEng); the BA and BSc may be named (following a specified syllabus) or unnamed (constructed of courses chosen by the student) degrees. Many OU faculties have now introduced short modules worth ten credits. Most of these modules are taught online, and start at regular intervals throughout the year. They typically provide an introduction to a broader subject over a period of ten weeks, these are generally timed during vacations at conventional universities in order to take advantage of their facilities. Some science modules, which require only home study, are complemented by residential courses, in order to allow the student to gain practical laboratory experience in that field; typically, an award of degree or diploma will require completion of both. Different modules are run at different times of the year, but, typically, a 30 or 60 credit module will run either from October to June or from February to October. Assessment is by both continual assessment (with, normally, between four and eight assignments during the year) and, for most, a final examination or, on some modules, a major assignment. Open degree[edit] St Michael's Church at the Open University campus As well as degrees in named subjects, the Open University also grants multidisciplinary "Open" degrees. Open degrees provide students with access to a wide variety of subjects to develop a personalised curriculum to meet their vocational needs and personal interests.[50] The Open degree may be awarded as a Bachelor of Arts Open, a Bachelor of Science Open (either with or without honours), a Master of Arts Open or a Master of Science Open.[51] The Open degree is the most popular qualification at the university.[52] Around 20,000 students are enrolled in this programme, which makes the Open University the UK's largest multidisciplinary education provider.[53] As of 2018, over 236,000 alumni have graduated with an Open degree.[50] Other qualifications[edit] The Open University grants undergraduate Certificates (abbreviated Cert) typically awarded after 60 completed credits at Level 1 or Level 3 (where each credit corresponds to roughly 10 hours of study, therefore 60 credits represent about 600 hours of effort), Diplomas (abbreviated Dip) after 120 credits – typically 60 credits at Level 2 and 60 credits at Level 3. Open University also awards Foundation degrees (abbreviated FD). OU also offers a limited number of CertHE (120 CATS) and DipHE (240 CATS). Postgraduate[edit]. The Open University provides the opportunity to study for a PhD on a part-time distance, or a full-time basis (on-site for science subjects and most social sciences, off-site with some supervisions on-site for arts) in a wide range of disciplines as well as an EdD for professionals in education. Since 2019 the Open University has also offered a professional doctorate for healthcare workers. The university offers a range of Master's levels modules such as the MBA and MPA, MSc, MA and MEd, and MRes, and a number of postgraduate diplomas and certificates including innovative practice-based modules and postgraduate computing qualifications for professionals. Postgraduate certificates are awarded for 60 credits of study on specified modules; postgraduate diplomas are awarded for 120 credits of study on specified modules. The university offers "Advanced Diplomas" that involve 60 credits at undergraduate level and 60 credits at postgraduate level – these are designed as "bridges" between undergraduate and postgraduate study. Degree ceremonies[edit]. The Open University holds its annual degree ceremony at The Barbican Centre in London. Unlike most United Kingdom universities, degree ceremonies at the Open University are not graduation ceremonies as such (the occasion on which degrees are formally conferred on those who have achieved substantive degrees)—although honours degrees are also normally conferred on these occasions. The Open University degree ceremony is officially known as a "Presentation of Graduates" at which those who have already had a degree bestowed on them are presented to the University Chancellor or his/her representative. Open University graduates normally graduate in absentia at a joint meeting of the university's council and senate ("congregation") which takes place at a meeting entirely separate from the degree ceremony. The university's degree ceremonies occur throughout the year at various prestigious auditorium venues located throughout the United Kingdom, plus one each in Ireland and Continental Western Europe. In the year 2010 the OU held 26 degree ceremonies including Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Ely and Versailles. These ceremonies are presided over by a senior academic at Pro-Vice-Chancellor level or higher, and have the normal formal rituals associated with a graduation ceremony, including academic dress, procession and university mace. In year 2000, the Open University was the first to host an online "virtual" graduation ceremony in the United Kingdom together with an audience at the OU's campus in Milton Keynes. Twenty-six students in eight countries, from the United States of America to Hong Kong, were presented for their master's degrees in the online graduation, including, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – Tim Berners-Lee, one of the founders of the World Wide Web, whom was conferred an honorary doctorate.[54]University rankingsGlobal – OverallARWU World[55]801-900 (2021)THE World[56]601-800 (2022)USNWR Global[57]718 (2021) National – OverallARWU National[58]50-60 (2021)CWUR National[59]50 (2020)USNWR National[60]51 (2021) Rankings[edit]. The university is included in major world university rankings such as Times Higher Education World University Rankings, U.S. News & World Report and Academic Ranking of World Universities. The OU ranked in the top third of UK universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 using the Times Higher Education Power Score.[61][62] The Open University ranked third in National Student Survey 2021 achieving 88.24% for overall student satisfaction.[63] Research[edit]. Like other UK universities, the OU actively engages in research. The OU's Planetary and Space Sciences Research Institute has become particularly well known to the public through its involvement in space missions. In October 2006, the Cassini-Huygens mission including 15 people from the OU received the 2006 "Laurels for Team Achievement Award" from the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA). Cassini-Huygens' successful completion of its seven-year, two billion-mile journey in January 2005 to Saturn ended with Huygens landing farther away from Earth than any previous probe or craft in the history of space exploration. The first instrument to touch Saturn's moon Titan was the Surface Science Package containing nine sensors to investigate the physical properties of Titan's surface. It was built by a team at the OU led by Professor John Zarnecki. The OU employs over 500 people engaged in research in over 25 areas, and there are over 1,200 research students. It spends approximately £20 million each year on research, around £6 million from the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the remainder from external funders.[citation needed] The Open University also runs the Open Research Online (ORO) website. ORO is a collection of over 40,000 open access research outputs across a broad range of research areas.[64] The Open University produced in collaboration with Springer Nature the Computer Science Ontology, which is a large-scale automatically generated taxonomy of research topics in the field of Computer Science. The Open University operates a collection of telescopes and other instruments at the Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife. OpenScience Observatories[edit]. The OU operates a collection of telescopes and other instruments at the Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife. Its facilities compromise the COmpletely Autonomous Service Telescope (COAST), the Physics Innovations Robotic Telescope Explorer (PIRATE) and an associated weather station. At the Open University campus in Milton Keynes researches operate a radio telescope – ARROW (A Robotic Radio telescope Over the Web).[65] Students[edit]. In the 2019–20 academic year, there were 175,719 enrolled students.[5] Demographics[edit]. The Open University's Milton Keynes campus Enrollment numbers show a tremendous difference from 2009–2010 to 2016–2017.[66] Most students were from England (99,834), while 14,903 were from Scotland, 6,668 from Wales, 3,667 from Northern Ireland and 4,900 from elsewhere in the European Union, plus others elsewhere. 60% of undergraduates were female, with 53% of those taking postgraduate modules being male. 22,664 of students in 2015–16 had declared disabilities.[67] According to The Guardian, the fall in the number of part-time students was accelerated in 2012 when tuition fees rose and there was limited financial support for part-time students. The Open University saw a 30% drop of part-time students between 2010–11 and 2015–16.[68] While most of those studying are mature students, an increasingly large proportion of new undergraduates are aged between 17 and 25, to the extent that the OU now has more students in this age range than any other UK university.[69][70][when?] In the 2003–2004 academic year around 20% of new undergraduates were under 25,[71] up from 12.5% in 1996–1997[71] (the year before top-up fees were announced). In 2010 approximately 55% of those under 25 were also in full-time employment.[72] In 2010, 29,000 undergraduates were in this age range.[72] By 2011, 32,000 undergraduates were under 25 years old,[69] representing around 25% of new students.[73] The majority of students in the 2015–16 academic year were aged between 25 and 34 years old, with the median age of new undergraduates being 28.[67] As of 2014, the OU's youngest graduate was a fifteen-year-old boy from Wales who gained a BSc with First Class Honours in 2014.[74] The OU works with some schools to introduce A-Level students to OU study and in 2009–10 3% of undergraduates were under 18 years old.[citation needed] Courses[edit]. Unlike other universities, where students register for a programme, OU students register separately for individual modules (which may be 30 or 60 CATS credits (and formerly available in 10, 15, or 20 credits), equivalent to 15 or 30 ECTS credits). These modules may then be linked into degree programmes. During the 2009–10 academic year social studies was the most popular study area (with 16,381 full-time equivalent students), followed by biological and physical sciences (12,357) and historical and philosophical studies (8,686); student numbers even on smaller undergraduate programmes, such as creative arts and design[26] are still significant (2,528) as are postgraduate registrations on programmes such as mass communications and documentation (123 full-time equivalent students). The most popular module during 2009–10 was DD101 An introduction to the social sciences (7,512 students), followed by AA100 The Arts Past and Present, B120 An Introduction to Business Studies, K101 An Introduction to Health and Social Care and Y163 Starting with Psychology.[26] Cintra House, Cambridge, the university's former base in the East of England Fees and financial assistance[edit]. 17,634 students received financial assistance towards their study in 2015–16.[67] The typical cost for United Kingdom-based students of a Bachelor's honours degree at the OU was between £3,780 and £5,130 in 2009–10. From September 2012 the Government reduced its funding for all students residing in England and fees went up to compensate. English students pay higher fees than those living in the rest of the United Kingdom. The average cost of one full-time year or 120 credits rose to £6,336 in 2021, bringing the cost of an average Bachelor's honours degree for an English student to £19,008. (European Union and international students pay more as the university does not receive government funding for them).[26] The most important revenue stream to the Open University is now academic fees paid by the students, which totalled about £157 million in 2009–10 and £248 million in 2015–16.[26][67] Qualifications awarded[edit]. The university enrolled fewer than 50,000 students in the 1970–71 academic year, but it quickly exceeded that number by 1974–75.[26] By 1987–88 yearly enrolment had doubled to 100,000 students, passing 200,000 by 2001–02 and 250,000 in 2009–10.[26] Numbers fell when the fee regime changed. Cumulatively, by the end of 2009–10 the OU had educated more than 1.5 million students and awarded 819,564 qualifications after successful assessment.[26] In addition, the Open University provides certification for qualifications at Ruskin College in Oxford and Richmond, the American International University in London, a private liberal arts institution. (Until 2008, it provided the same service for the University of the Highlands and Islands in Scotland). Open University Students Association[edit]. The Open University Students Association is the equivalent of a students' union for the Open University, and is a registered charity wholly funded by the Open University (OU). The association is governed by a Board of Trustees and a Central Executive Committee. Each student registered with the OU automatically becomes part of the Students Association unless they elect to formally opt out. It offers opportunities to meet up, volunteer, find information and access services to support learning. Notable current and former academics[edit].

The Open University has been featured in many films and television programmes. The plot of Educating Rita surrounds the working-class titular character aiming to "improve" herself by studying English literature. She attends private tutorials run by alcoholic lecturer Frank.[86] Television characters have also followed OU courses. These include Anne Bryce in the BBC sit-com Ever Decreasing Circles, Yvonne Sparrow in Goodnight Sweetheart and George Bulman in Bulman, in the ITV spin-off from the series Strangers. Sheila Grant (Sue Johnston) was accused of having an affair with her tutor in Brookside. Onslow, a character from Keeping up Appearances, watches Open University programming on television from time to time. In autumn 2006, Lenny Henry was a star in Slings and Arrows, a one-off BBC television drama which he also wrote, about someone who falls in love while on an OU English Literature course. (Henry has himself completed an OU degree in English.)[87] In the 2006–07 TV series Life on Mars, Sam Tyler received messages from the real world via Open University programmes late at night. Dorian Green from Birds of a Feather announced she had been accepted by the Open University to do a degree in psychology and began studying with the university in series 3. In the 2016 novel Swing Time by Zadie Smith, the narrator's mother is a student of the Open University. In the TV series Bottom, Eddie, Spudgun, and Dave Hedgehog watch TV while playing hide-and-seek with Ritchie. They fall asleep, leaving Ritchie in a cupboard, until they finally awaken to an OU lecture on 'Medieval population distribution patterns in Lower Saxony'. Partnerships[edit]. Armed Forces[edit]. Through an agreement between the Ministry of Defence and the OU going back to the early 1970s, a wide range of courses are available to members of the British armed forces, with course materials supplied via the student's BFPO address. OU study centres have been established in Cyprus and Germany. Many have studied while on active service, even in conflict situations.[88] Partner institutions[edit]. The Open University has a diverse network of partners across the globe. Once approved, partner institutions offer Open University validated awards, granted under the University's Royal Charter. As of October 2021, the Open University has over 40 international partners, including for example Union School of Theology, Regent's University London, York College, Belfast Metropolitan College, American College of Greece, Leeds City College and Ruskin College Oxford.[89] Doctoral training partnerships[edit]. The Grand Union[edit]. The Grand Union is an ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership uniting The Open University, the University of Oxford and Brunel University London. The partnership is committed to a student-centred approach to training researchers, increasing access to postgraduate study, and advancing disciplinary and interdisciplinary research.[90] Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training[edit]. Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership is a consortium of the Open University, University of Oxford and University of Cambridge providing funding and training for doctoral students in the arts and humanities.[91][92] Imperial-Cambridge-Open Centre for Doctoral Training[edit]. From 2014 to 2022, the Open University is working with Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge to establish a new EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) to develop skills in civil nuclear energy for global markets.[93] See also[edit].

BEST MASTER RANKING Masterbooking Best Masters UK The British higher education system is manly composed of 'undergraduate studies' (from high school diploma to three years after) and 'postgraduate studies' (Masters degree). The particularity of such a system is students' freedom, because apart from compulsory modules, they can choose some modules as options. Since lecturers and students are really close, your individual work will benefit from that. You, international student, hesitating because of your English speaking, don't panic: universities provide with extra courses with a customized support. The degree you will get for these studies is the 'Bachelor's degree of arts' focused on languages, history, literature and social sciences, or the 'Bachelor's degree of sciences' for sciences, that are more concrete. Lasting around one year, postgraduate studies give you a Masters degree; they require a lot of personal work and you would not be accepted without relevant academic results (a distinction is compulsory). The tutorial methodology: lecturers give you basic courses and after that, you have to develop the subjects you prefer. If you want to go further and if your student record allows you, you can apply for a PhD, the equivalent of French doctorat.

Structure. The PhD programme is structured to help you attain the required skills you need to undertake your research and to write your thesis, allowing you to maintain and build momentum in your writing and to complete your PhD thesis within the three, or at maximum four-year time span allotted. Year One: You will take part in the skills course, a series of sessions that provide guidance on aspects of the PhD course and training with skills such as referencing programmes, image management and photography, using social media in your research, presenting at conferences, teaching, publishing, and archival research. During the first year you may also take language classes, either at the Courtauld or through neighbouring institutions, including LSE, SOAS, Kings, and the Geothe Institute. There are also important courses held within the University of London for historical skills and archives, palaeography, public speaking, oral histories etc. Sessions held by ReSkIN, an organisation of the visual arts community across the University of London, is another important component of the first year programme. These sessions provide an opportunity to meet local scholars working on topics in the visual arts, and to attend sessions about writing and research on the visual arts. Alongside these various training and skills events, you will attend the first year seminars. Over the course of Autumn and Spring terms, your cohort will come together on a weekly basis to explore theoretical and practical methods and approaches to research through readings, presentations, and discussions. In the third term of the first year you will submit your first year monitoring paper. This consists of a chapter of your research, an outline of your thesis, and plan for the next two years of work; it will be read by your supervisory team and discussed at a formal meeting with them in early June. You have to pass this monitoring exercise to proceed to the following year. It is an important milestone in your PhD research, and the focus for your research and writing in the first year. Year Two: During the second year of the program, students often take extended research or field work trips abroad. Training in languages or other skills may continue, and students may also be involved with working as teaching assistants and other opportunities for building professional experience. You will continue to meet regularly with your supervisory team. There is a further monitoring event during the second year that may take a variety of forms, but most often involves some sort of presentation of your research to faculty and research students. Year Three: In your third year, you will be focusing on completing and revising your chapters: this can be the most intense year for writing. You will meet with your supervisory team regularly and will also be required to take part in the Third Year Postgraduate Symposium, attended by MA and PhD students and faculty from across the Institute.

Ambra, Translating Collectivity: Surrealism of the Levant The Courtauld PhD Programme has given me generous means to develop my professional and personal life. The full programme of Skills and Methodology seminars in Year 1 prepared me for the different stages of PhD life and allowed me to discuss in a collective manner the key theoretical frameworks and objects of my thesis, helping me make important strides in my research. The method is rigorously theoretical, as well as encouraging of an object-based approach through active and critical close looking. Through these seminars I formed meaningful connections with my peers. The PhD Study Room at The Courtauld also allows for a dedicated study space where PhD students can work, discuss ideas or kick back after a long day. Outside of The Courtauld, the potential for independent study and research within the city is large, and students can choose where to spend their time. Nevertheless, the Institute fosters a dynamic and exciting community, with which I sought to become more involved. I attended the rich programme of lectures and conferences at the Research Forum, as well as the smaller seminars and symposia that take place on a weekly basis. I organised and convened a seminar for two years, Conversations Across Time, with the intention of bringing together research students across periods to discuss and grow their research through informal feedback. I was a PhD Representative for the Student Union for two years: getting involved with the SU is a precious way to get involved with the administrative side of the Institute and engage with the student body in meaningful ways. Finally, I delivered seminars on a Teaching Assistant post; while this is not a compulsory part of the PhD programme, it is a valuable experience which enriched my professional life and my research. Lan, Connections in the Making and Meaning of the Art of Bhutan and Tibet in the 17th and 18th Centuries: a Study of the Wall Paintings at Tango Monastery I joined Courtauld in 2013 as an MA student of the Conservation of Wall Painting Department. The teaching staff were dedicated in their task of training us – the next generation of wall painting conservators. The outlook was fundamentally international with an emphasis on being at the cutting edge of conservation practice. The course was intense; days filled with lectures, site visits, and practical work and evenings for preparation and assignments. Teaching took advantage of the large professional networks associated with the department, allowing us to benefit from the first-hand experience of expert practitioners and researchers. My cohort had seven women that came from different parts of the world with diverse academic backgrounds. We spent three years together in the lab, studio, and on-site, sharing accommodation during fieldwork and discussing wall paintings all the time. These shared experiences and interests naturally form the basis of friendships as well as a long-lasting network of colleagues. One of the most precious and unique aspects of being at The Courtauld was the opportunity to do hands-on work during fieldwork campaigns every year. In fieldwork campaigns students function as full-team members rather than interns, sharing responsibility for planning and managing the programme of work. Crucially, we participate in discussion and decision-making with supervisors helping us to develop a critical approach to conservation. Each fieldwork experience was different but importantly they all involved an intimate engagement with the site and an expansion of my understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a conservator. My primary academic interest has been always in Himalayan wall paintings. It was grateful to find a research topic that I really passionate about during my MA dissertation, and with support from professors and foundation I was able to continue the research as a PhD student. This research was structured to complement and support conservation projects within the department. Since then, I have been fortunate to dedicate my study to this subject that I love. My internal and external supervisors have kindly provided support throughout the time, as well as other senior colleagues in the broader Courtauld network. The environment here in the department was truly like a family where we learned from, and supported, each other. Natasha, The Masculine Image in Qajar Iran (1789 – 1925) I guess you could say I have enjoyed my time at The Courtauld, given that I’m still here nearly ten years after starting my BA! When I attended my undergraduate interview all those years ago, the student ambassador was posed with a question by a very eager parent: “what do you do after the undergraduate programme?” “Well,” came the answer, “if you’re lucky, you go on to do an MA, and if you’re even luckier you go on to do a PhD!”. Little did I know that, as luck would have it, that ended up being my trajectory as I waited nervously in a corridor. I can’t say I felt like the ‘typical’ Courtauld candidate – I was from a low income background, was state school educated and with no prior qualification in the subject apart from a love for art – even the grandiosity of the spiral staircase of the Somerset House campus alone made me think twice if this was the place for ‘people like me’, despite having fallen in love with the prospect of studying here. However, my fears were quickly allayed as, a little while later, The Courtauld became my academic home for the foreseeable future. A Courtauld education, be it undergraduate or postgraduate study, is an exercise in saturation – be prepared to live and breathe art and investigate every foreseeable corner of the discipline. A rigorous and pioneering global approach to is given to both theoretical and material study; something which is highlighted by the component of methodology discussion seminars with the cohort during the first year as part of the PhD programme, which are taken alongside your own independent area of research. As a result, what can often be a lonely road of doctorate study can often result in a close-knit student body. World class supervision is also complimented by regular opportunities to present and publish your research, such as seminar groups for each subject area, yearly conferences and the Immediations journal. My own research was also supported by the ARHC CHASE consortium for the humanities, which as well as providing essential financial support also encouraged inter-disciplinary interaction with peers within other disciplines at participating institutions.

                            [body] => 5 routes to getting a DoctorateAuthorDaniel Higginbotham, EditorPostedDecember, 2020View all PhD opportunitiesWhile most Doctoral students decide to follow the PhD by thesis pathway, there are five viable routes to achieving this highly regarded qualificationPhD by thesis. As detailed in what is a PhD? this is the most common means of getting a Doctorate degree.Over the three or four years of research at university, your PhD supervisor will support you as you aim to produce a thesis based on your research proposal.A thesis is typically 60,000-90,000 words in length - although this can vary between institutions. For instance, the University of Glasgow's College of Social Sciences expects a thesis to be 70,000-100,000 words including references, bibliography and appendices, while the University of Cambridge has set an upper limit of 80,000 words.Once completed, you'll need to defend your PhD thesis in front of a panel of examiners during your viva voce.Integrated PhD. This four-year qualification, also known as the New Route PhD, involves studying a one-year research Masters degree (MRes) before progressing onto a three-year PhD.Offered by a select number of universities across the UK, integrated PhDs are supported by the government and the British Council. Visit UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) for information on research and funding for different types of PhD.The integrated PhD exposes you to a combination of taught materials, practical experience and advanced research. This allows you to learn subject-specific methodologies, while building the transferable skills that will enable you to become a leader in your chosen profession.Institutions can also develop personalised integrated PhD programmes to meet each student's needs. For example, universities may offer you the opportunity to gain a postgraduate certificate (PGCert) in Learning and Teaching (CiLT) - perfect if you're considering a career as a higher education lecturer.Professional Doctorate. Geared primarily towards current professionals in vocational sectors such as healthcare, teaching and education, and engineering and manufacturing, this type of Doctorate includes a significant taught component and a smaller research project.Professional Doctorates are often taken on a part-time basis and can last between two and eight years. Like their standard PhD counterparts, they usually begin in October or January.While you won't typically be looking to get an academic job, your research is expected to contribute to theory as well as professional practice. Projects often revolve around a real-life issue that affects your employer.Several professional Doctorates, such as the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy), are accredited by a professional body - for instance, the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) - and may also lead to a professional qualification.Common titles for graduates of professional Doctorate degrees include:Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)Doctor of Education (EdD)Doctor of Engineering (EngD)Doctor of Medicine (MD).Unlike many professional Doctorates, the EngD is typically offered as a full-time course and is aimed at young engineering graduates with little or no professional experience.Explore what's currently available at Find a Professional Doctorate.PhD by publication. This route involves submitting previously published work - such as books, book chapters and journal articles, which together form a coherent body of work and show evidence of an original contribution to a particular field of study.It is often taken by mid-career academics that haven't had the opportunity to undertake a standard Doctorate degree.Generally, a minimum of five to eight published pieces are required, but this varies between institutions and depends on their length. The published work will be assessed to the same rigorous standards as a traditional PhD by thesis.You must also provide a written supporting statement, which can range from 5,000 to 20,000 words, and present your work to an academic committee. A supervisor will assist you with selecting which publications to submit and with the supporting statement.Some universities accept only their own graduates for a PhD by publication, while others restrict this route to their academic staff. In general, you should have graduated from your first degree at least seven years ago to be eligible.For example, The University of Manchester has published its own Guidance for the PhD By Published Work, with eligibility only extending to current members of staff.Distance learning PhD. Following the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and restrictions to visiting university campuses, there's been a greater need for students to carry out their research at home, wherever possible. This has meant an increase in the number of online PhDs available from UK institutions including The Open University.As PhDs are based primarily on independent research rather than time spent in lectures and seminars, distance learning is a viable route for many Doctoral students. PhDs by distance learning are a good option to consider if you've got family or work commitments or are an international student - as this gives you the chance to undertake Doctoral research without having to live close to your chosen institution. It's also a suitable mode of study if your subject requires you to be based in a specific location away from the university.For the most part, you'll be in touch with your supervisor by phone, email or Skype/Zoom. However, even if you opt for this form of research, you'll generally still need to attend university for one or two weeks of each academic year for meetings and to receive research skills training. Your final examination may be undertaken either face-to-face or virtually.With distance learning PhDs, you can usually register as a full or part-time student. The level of fees you pay varies between institutions - some charge the same as for a standard PhD while others offer a reduced rate.Check that any funding you plan to apply for is available to distance learning students, as this isn't always the case.Search for distance learning PhDs.Find out more.

Having that extra year gives me greater quality and more advanced material to work on and  MSci students are known to have a fast track career and more opportunities. My experience has been good and we have one day a week of clinical skills to practice what we have learnt. My first placement was in the Covid vaccination centre and helping to administer vaccines to people and the Nightingale Hospital to assist and provide care to Covid affected patients. Beatrice Studying MSci Nursing, St Luke’s Campus I really enjoy living in Exeter, especially the mix between countryside and city. Often if the weather is good there are really nice sunsets and you can go to the top of the hill to watch them. At the same time the city centre is very modern with lots of shops and things to do. I like that the whole city is very new and modern as well as the campus. As an international student from Hong Kong, I found Exeter really welcoming. Zachary Studying BSc Economics and Finance with Industrial Experience, Streatham Campus The University of Exeter has a fantastic astrophysics department, full of leading experts, and access to some brilliant technology. It’s really exciting to know you’re learning from some of the world’s experts in a field that you’re studying and that you’re so passionate about. lecturers are always happy for students to come to them with questions they may have – whether this be through email or through workshops that get put on. There’s always support if you need it, whether that be from your lecturers, tutor, or the Wellbeing department. Isabelle Studying MPhys Physics with Astrophysics, Streatham Campus As an international student I definitely felt welcomed and this wasn’t a problem for me. I’m pretty outgoing so found it fairly easy to make friends and made a lot of friends across the years and across the two universities which was really nice. I really liked sharing the campus with Falmouth University as having the two universities there gives a different feeling and you get to mix with different people that you may not have met otherwise.
