Taught art courses: taught art courses are taught through a combination of seminars and lectures, and students are evaluated through running, exams and other theory based assessments.
Taught art programmes are designed carefully to equip students with advanced skills that are relevant to formation, analysis, evaluation and image conception from the art perspective.
Research art courses: This course is designed for students who are keen to be part of the research community. Therefore, students favoring the use of multidisplinary approach are highely encouraged to be enrolled in the research programme. Students could have hands on practice by employing art theory design craft into practice
Master of Science
A Master of Science is awarded for students who are intersted in enrolling into science based courses, which may include chemistry, biology, helath scinces and science engineering courses. In addition, other social science and economic courses can also fall under the science field. The MS programmes usually take longer time to be completed as compared with the MA programs as the MS courses have a research component associated with it.
Science taught-programmes: science taught programmes are designed for students who will be interested in studying the science components in theory. Students enrolled into science-taught programmes will learn the chemical structure of certain substances, the biological make-up of various creatures.
Research science programmes are based on putting every science concept into practice through running lab experiments, researches and other practical work. Students who have the ambicious to work within science laborotory environment and who are keen to discover and analyse lab data are highly encouraged to enroll into taught component of the science course.
Master of Research (MRes)
A Master of Research degree is designed for students who are interested in receiving trainingof how to become a researcher. By obtaining excellent research skills, candidates will have the opportunity to pursue their studies in MA, MSc or PhD programmes.
