Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

This programme is designed to provide a strong grounding in the disciplinary and academic skills central to the study of International Relations.

The programme is delivered in two stages. Stage One (the taught component) comprises 15 and 30 credit compulsory and optional research-led taught modules over the autumn and spring semesters. Module work will be assessed at the end of each semester.

Stage Two requires the researching and writing of a dissertation on a topic of your choosing. The dissertation is worth 60 credits, and the work is supported by a supervisor.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Year One comprises taught modules to the value of 120 credits, delivered through 15 and 30 credit compulsory and optional modules. Upon successful completion of the taught stage, you will progress to the 60 credit dissertation. 

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

You will be taught through a range of methods including lectures, seminars and workshops which are designed to assist you to analyse and evaluate ideas and information from guided reading.

This programme introduces you to the nature of post-graduate research, primarily through the taught course in research methods and skills, and subsequently through independent self-directed research with the support of a supervisor leading to the dissertation.

Study for a Master’s degree is intensive and challenging and it is important that you take full advantage of the teaching that is provided in order to succeed. Attendance at classes and dissertation supervisions is compulsory. We will expect you to undertake self-directed study, completing the required readings and being prepared to participate fully in class discussions. 

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

We will support you in improving your study and research skills with dedicated classes at the beginning of each semester. 

All modules are supported by Learning Central, a virtual learning environment that is available on and off campus through which you will access a wide range of materials for your modules.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

The main form of assessment will be coursework essays. Other forms of assessment might include unseen examinations, seminar presentations, class tests and book and article reviews.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

Upon completion of the programme, you will have the qualities needed for employment in circumstances requiring sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative, in complex and unpredictable professional environments.
