Abstract

31 March & 1 April 2004 We have witnessed big changes in to the nature of postgraduate programmes in the UK. Up until the 1960s, graduate study equated to the traditional PhD training programme; by the 1990s nearly all universities were offering taught postgraduate training. The UCL Teaching and Learning strategy recognises these changes and calls attention to the needs of part-time and mature students. In CHIME we provide two part-time postgraduate courses, designed to meet the needs of those working full-time in the NHS. We were given a SCILTA award to enable us to carry out a follow up study of our students. The aim of the research is to design and pilot a method of assessing the impact of a modular MSc programme on students' careers and professional practice. This presentation will describe our research methods and summarise the findings. We will raise issues about the changing nature of postgraduate study and the challenge this poses to university departments in UCL.
