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.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

All our MA taught modules are delivered via small-group seminars, with significant emphasis on student engagement via presentations and student-led discussion. This enables continuous consolidation of and feedback on individual and collaborative learning, development of discipline-specific and transferable skills, development of your ability to learn independently and collaboratively, and development of oral communication skills in informal group discussions and formal presentations.

For the dissertation you will conduct independent research on a topic of your choice. This will be supported by regular supervision meetings with a member of academic staff. This develops your ability to plan and deliver a sustained independent research project, to articulate your own detailed analyses and arguments in formal writing, and to develop your ideas through oral discussion of your written drafts.

All modules will make use of Cardiff University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central, where you can access core readings and other course materials.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

A variety of assessment types are used to develop your ability to present your own thoughts in formal speech and writing. The forms of assessment for all modules are set out in the module descriptions.

Your work will be assessed in relation to formal grading criteria set out in the degree handbook, which emphasise knowledge, understanding, critical analysis, and argumentation.

You are encouraged to discuss ideas for your assessed work with the module leader or supervisor.

In each taught module, you will be able to submit a first draft of your work for formative feedback.

The dissertation is developed through formal meetings with your supervisor, who provides feedback on draft sections and discusses any ideas that you present orally at the meeting.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will help you reflect on your work and advise you on study techniques, module selection, and career planning. This will include a formal meeting each semester to formulate concrete strategies to help you reach your full academic and professional potential.

Your personal tutor is also your first point of contact if you experience any difficulties.

Module leaders are available in their office hours or by appointment to discuss any matters relating specifically to their module. You are encouraged to discuss topics and readings for assessments with your module leaders.

You can meet with the MA Philosophy programme director to discuss your progress and any difficulties you face.

Reasonable adjustments can be made for disabilities and dyslexia.

Writing skills support is available to all students.

Careers support includes one-to-one career planning advice meetings and information about placement opportunities.

A specialist librarian for Philosophy provides advice in finding books, articles, and other relevant materials.

University support is available for navigating financial, health, and wellbeing difficulties.
