MA: DTCE bigger than ever…

September 19, 2013 4 comments

Unfortunately applications are now closed for the 2013-14 academic year, as teaching begins next week (Monday 23rd September).

Welcome fair marquee

We welcomed new students to the University of Manchester campus this week

However, it is good news to report that with approximately 60 students this year, the MA: DTCE is as large as it ever has been since launching in 2007. We have students of around 19 different nationalities and our distance learners are based all around the world from Colombia through Greece and Kazakhstan to Vietnam and Japan. Not to mention many UK-based students who also study at a distance to fit in with busy work schedules and family lives.

So even if you couldn’t study with us this year we hope that you’ll consider applying for study in 2014-15….

And to those of you who have registered…. Welcome! Remember – teaching starts on Monday 🙂

Online Registration Open

If you hold an unconditional offer from us for the 2013-14 academic year you can use the University’s online registration system from 1st September 2013. We advise that you register as soon as possible, because it can be a complex process and we want to make sure you have it completed before the start of teaching. You should also use the online applications system to confirm your attendance on the MA: DTCE.

Note that if you hold a conditional offer you need to meet these conditions before you can register. Please let us know if you have problems meeting these conditions (e.g. English language requirement, references).

You will find the DTCE_programme_handbook_13-14 useful with information on module selection, timetable info, study workload, important contacts, etc.

Remember that inductions and welcome events for on-campus students take place during the third week of September, the week before teaching starts. Online students also have an induction that they need to arrange with Marilena Aspioti (the distance student support officer) – further information will follow closer to the time.

If you are a distance student, Marilena is the first point of call throughout the year for all queries. She will help arrange social sessions, manage the social networking and other web sites, mail out feedback, and so on. Marilena can be contacted on Marilena_aspioti@yahoo.co.uk
