Euogfarnau troseddol

You are not required to complete a DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check or provide a Certificate of Good Conduct to study this course.

If you are currently subject to any licence condition or monitoring restriction that could affect your ability to successfully complete your studies, you will be required to disclose your criminal record. Conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • access to computers or devices that can store images
  • use of internet and communication tools/devices
  • curfews
  • freedom of movement
  • contact with people related to Cardiff University.

Strwythur y cwrs

You will take compulsory and optional modules offered by the Department of Politics and International Relations (subject to any pre-requisite conditions, accommodation, timetable or other constraints that may apply in that particular year) and complete a dissertation. 

The programme is delivered in two stages. Stage One (the taught component) comprises 15- and 30-credit compulsory and optional modules; Stage Two comprises the dissertation. During stage One, you will be taught and assessed in modules in each semester.

You will progress to the dissertation upon successful completion of Stage One.

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 60 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.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Studying for a postgraduate 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, be well prepared by completing the required reading, and participate fully in classes. 

Learning is primarily by means of small group sessions designed to enable you to analyse and critically evaluate major public policy issues and the concepts, theories and methods used in the analysis of public policy and politics.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Assessment is via a variety of coursework and unseen written examinations, accompanied by personalised feedback designed to enable you to improve your performance over the course of the programme. The forms of coursework assessment include essays, seminar presentations, class tests and book and article reviews.

Summative assessments count towards your degree. Your marks in these assessments count towards your formal progression from Stage One (taught modules) to Stage Two (the dissertation), and towards the determination of your final award. The dissertation comprises the Stage Two summative assessment.

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.

You will receive pastoral support through our personal tutor scheme and academic staff have dedicated office hours to meet with students to discuss any learning queries. 

We offer a programme of visiting speakers and guest lectures at which students are welcome. 

A designated Disability and Diversity Officer ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities.

The University has a range of services to support you, including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service and excellent libraries with specialist subject librarians and resource centres. The University also offers writing skills support for students whose first language is not English.

Feedback:

Feedback is given orally during seminars and you will receive written feedback on your summative coursework. Feedback will help you identify strengths and weaknesses in your learning, as well how you might improve your performance. Written feedback will be made available no later than four weeks from the submission of your assessment.

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

You are expected to assume a greater responsibility for your education as you undertake your postgraduate studies. Through the course of this programme, you will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both discipline specific and more generic employability skills. 

During the programme you will be able to extend your communication and presentation skills, both oral and written and develop collaborative skills through group problem solving. You will enhance your analytical skills, be able to develop a reasoned argument and reflect on your own learning by making use of constructive feedback. 

You will be encouraged to work independently and develop your research skills by seeking relevant materials from a variety of sources, evaluating this evidence to develop a reasoned argument. You will reflect upon empirical and theoretical issues and critically evaluate current research. Discussion and debate will hone logical skills and enable deeper insight into the subject matter.
