Queen Mary Geography Masters Study Drinks Reception 2015
Friday, 6 March 2015 from 17:00 to 19:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We warmly invite you to our reception for Masters' applicants, offer holders, and potential applicants, to be held in the School of Geography, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). This informal event offers a valuable opportunity to meet our Directors of Masters' Programmes and Graduate Studies, and to catch up with current Masters' students and Geography staff. Meet the team that could be teaching you and find out everything you need to know ahead of September 2015 over refreshments. Find out more about the modules, research methods, field trips and bursaries available across the range of Queen Mary Geography Masters' programmes to help you tailor your studies.
We're launching a new programme for 2015 - Global Development Futures - which offers students the opportunity to undertake their own fieldwork in Mumbai, India. This innovative programme explores an alternative development agenda outside traditional development studies with the chance to reconsider the multiple connections (and disconnections) between countries of the Global South and Global North. To mark its launch, we're pleased to be able to offer three bursaries to support students embarking on this cutting-edge programme.
Our full range of Masters degrees - including Cities and Cultures; Environmental Science: Integrated Management of Freshwater Environments (with new bursaries for 2015); Environmental Science by Research (topics available); Geography (topics available); and London Studies - can be seen on the QMUL website.
This event is also a good opportunity to find out about the QMUL Masters Support Scheme which will offer 86 scholarships of £10,000 each across programmes at the University.
As the world of work grows more competitive, a Master's degree significantly increases your opportunities of career advancement. But people do a Master's degree for many reasons: to further their studies, as a basis for a career in research, as a way of maximising chances of employment in a specialist field, as a means of advancing their existing career, or to facilitate a career change - and QMUL's School of Geography recognises these diverse needs.
A hallmark of the School is its commitment to research that makes a difference: challenging conventional boundaries within the discipline and between the academy and the community. Our Masters' degrees develop this approach through engagement with a variety of leading academic experts and external organisations. Students at Queen Mary work with local, national and international charities and community organisations, government agencies and policy makers, museums and galleries, and industry practitioners.
We hope you can make it on the 6th!
