University of Aberdeen
Applicants to the Globalization Programme should hold an relevant Honours degree (at a 2.1 standard or higher) from a recognised university. Under exceptional circumstances, applicants without these qualifications may still be admitted, provided they have an approved level of work experience in a related field and strong references. Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English Language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that you meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. If you are in doubt about your proficiency in English, contact the British Council office or its equivalent in your country. If your first language is not English, it is important that your proficiency in English is good in order for you to study successfully at the University of Aberdeen. Without this ability you will find great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations.
A typical course schedule for a full-time, MSc student is shown below:
1st half-session (September to December): Advanced social theory (30 credits); social research methods (30 credits).
2nd half-session (January to May): Dimensions of globalization (30 credits); elective option (30 credits).
Summer Session (June to September): Dissertation (60 credits).
Examination is exclusively by means of course work, mostly by means of essays. Students will be permitted one resubmission of failed work, but no resubmission of the dissertation.
