University summer school

The summer school will run from July 28 and end on August 8 at the University of Wolverhampton’s City Campus.

Short courses provide the opportunity for graduates to achieve academic credits towards a Master’s Degree qualification.  These courses include; ‘Routes to Postgraduate Academic Success’ and ‘Teaching Film and Media.’

Routes to Postgraduate Academic Success will give expert guidance in formulating book, conference and research proposals, as well as writing funding bids, and particularly improve writing skills in respect of academic publication.

Teaching Film and Media Studies provides the ability to teach A level students studying at a sixth form or college. The course is ideal for newly qualified undergraduates, teachers and lecturers for a quick route to teaching film and media in preparation for a new job in September.

Dr. Fran Pheasant-Kelly, Course leader in MA Film studies at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “Our summer school is a fantastic opportunity for those with a need to brush up on writing skills and gain knowledge of teaching film and media in a short period of time.

“The two summer school intensive courses will be especially valuable for those wanting to develop writing skills for academic publication and move ahead in their careers.”

The vocational courses allow attendees to work at their own pace while taking full advantage of the university’s specialist facilities along with expert tuition from experienced lecturers.

Discounts will be available to University of Wolverhampton staff and students and teachers from schools and colleges when booking a short course.

More information on booking and the full list of courses available.
