Meini prawf derbyn

Candidates will normally be graduates from a recognised university with a minimum of a 2:1: a sliding scale of specific conditions in terms of academic requirement, based around this 2:1 level, is also in place as the admissions criteria for most international recruitment markets.

Candidates will normally be graduates from a recognised university in related fields such as transport, engineering, business/management disciplines, geography, law, social sciences, maths and humanities.

In exceptional cases, candidates can be considered with other degrees e.g. English or Physics, particularly where there is evidence of significant professional experience in a relevant occupation. Non-graduates with approved professional qualifications or significant work experience may also be considered under certain circumstances. Maritime Policy and Shipping Management students will likely have Ocean Going - Master Mariner or a relevant Seafarer qualification in accordance with criteria following International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Convention on Standards for Training Certification and Watch-keeping (STCW), instead of a degree.

 

A score of band 6.5 on IELTS with a minimum of 6.0 in each category is required for non-native English speakers or those who have not had a substantial part of their education taught in the English language.

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 course runs from September to September. Between September and June you will study 120 credits of taught modules from a range of both compulsory core modules and a range of options.

Following on from this taught stage, you will undertake a dissertation project, submitted in September, with support from an academic supervisor.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019.

In total, you will take modules totalling 120 credits. In most cases, modules are worth 15 credits and taught over one semester, but one optional module is worth 30 credits and is taught over two semesters.

In the first semester, you will study two compulsory modules that aim to give you a detailed understanding of maritime policy and shipping management. The remaining two modules are drawn from a range of options that complement the compulsory components.

You will also study four 15 credit modules in the second semester. Here, one compulsory module provides research methods training to particularly support the dissertation. The remaining modules are drawn from a pool of options. Many of these are tailored towards the shipping industry although opportunities are provided to study subjects that help you place sea transport within wider logistics systems. In doing so, you are able to customise your learning experience while meeting the overall learning outcomes of the programme.

The taught phase concludes in June and, subject to successful completion, you then progress to the dissertation phase. Through the writing of the dissertation, you will acquire and develop research skills relevant to your choice of subject. The dissertation is submitted in early September. 

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.
