The best way to learn about a place is to visit it.
Saturday 8th March 2014
10:00am – 1:00pm
Join us at our next Postgraduate Open Day and get a flavour of postgraduate study in one of our free postgraduate masterclasses.
There are sessions in the following subject areas:
In the Arts:
The Master of Architecture programme emphasises skills in design and research through individual study and group work in seminars and studio activities. It develops critical reflection on personal aims, achievements and design philosophy. In this session, you will be involved in group work with critical reflection and debate.
We would recommend this seminar only for current architectural practitioners or BA (hons) Architecture students (RIBA part 1) considering progression onto RIBA Part 2.
Run by two published authors, this taster session will allow students to participate in an active workshop. This will involve both you doing some writing according to the exercise we set you and also reading your work out to the rest of the group. This programme will give you the freedom to explore different creative outlets in whatever direction you wish, but also to develop and hone practical skills.
In this exciting session, you will connect with international partners to form a real time global design team to work on a series of short projects with some of MAIDE 's (MA International Design Enterprise) international contacts. The project is to start with connections to China and will conclude with connections to Europe.
Within this session there is an emphasis on offering a platform for Creative Solutions for live projects rather than a specific genre of project. Current projects being conducted in the MAIDE studios include the design of a 'Soundmaker' to promote social interaction in Chinese park areas and also a range of houseware products for Canadian company Umbra.
In concrete poetry the visual appearance and arrangement of letterforms is treated equally important to the meaning of words that communicate ideas and emotions in a poem. In this session we will look at a brief history of concrete poetry and discover some key approaches, then undertake some experimental visual design work to re-imagine and express a selected poem. If you have your own favourite short poem please bring it along to this practical session, otherwise there will be several to select from on the day.
Explore newspapers and letters and diaries as sources for 19th Century history. In this session you will learn more about the MA in Historical Studies programme at the University of Lincoln, including two practical sessions on the type of historical research work which MA level study entails. Looking successively at ‘official’ newspapers and ‘intimate’ letters and diaries, we will explore the problems and potential of each.
A Broadcast News Workshop: Journalism tutors will work with participants to prepare a radio news bulletin from scratch. This taster session will give you a sense of writing for radio, working to broadcast deadlines and presenting a bulletin in our radio news studio. We'll also take a look at the Journalism School's virtual TV news studio and Lincoln's community radio station, Siren FM. Based on the university campus, this unique resource provides an excellent opportunity for Lincoln students to fine tune their radio skills alongside the formal curriculum.
Palaeography: Learning to read original documents is a vital part of research in the MA Medieval Studies. This session will show you how to begin to do this. We will also be able to look at particular manuscripts from the Lincoln Cathedral Library and discuss their use in academic research.
Please note that this session will be held in the Cathedral Library. Further details will be forwarded following confirmation of your booking.
Rather than a traditional Photography Masterclass, this session will explore photography within media theories. While the photographic image remains fundamental to our concerns, in seeking to exploit the dynamic relation between theory and practice, the focus of this session will be to experiment with new ways of ‘doing’ mediation, to recognize photography as a tool that does something, as something medial, namely ‘in the middle of things’, a process rather than a subject.
MA Playwriting and Script Development: Have you ever wondered how playwrights manage to put a slice of life on the stage? In this taster workshop, professional writers will lead you through some simple exercises that will enable you to start the process of creating an original play for theatre.
This new MSc programme aims to provide you with advanced level theoretical knowledge and understanding with a particular focus on modern molecular and systems biology approaches. Delivered by Dr Enrico Ferrari, an expert in nanobiotechnology.
This exciting programme offers an evidence-based approach for the development of clinical skills in problem behaviour management in animals.
Topics include: Human-animal Interactions, Animal Welfare, Domestic Animal Behaviour, Clinical Skills for Behaviour Management, and the Development and Regulation of Behaviour. Delivered by European veterinary behaviour specialist Dr Helen Zulch.
The MSc Computer Science is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to develop innovative solutions. You will explore the following modules: Advanced Artificial Intelligence, Advanced Programming, Advanced Software Engineering, Computer Vision, Interaction Design, Machine Learning, Mobile and Connected Devices.
Sustainable Power and Energy and the new Circular Economy: Tackle the 21st Century’s most pressing issue - the generation of power and energy on a sustainable basis.
Get an exciting insight into the work of a forensic anthropologist in this 2 hour taster session. This new MSc in Forensic Anthropology will focus on the role of the forensic anthropologist in international criminal investigations and Disaster Victim Identification.
You can attend an audio visual presentation about what will be offered within this Masters programme and how teaching and practical sessions are delivered.
