Whether your aim is to explore the possibilities of doctoral research or add anthropological expertise to your existing professional skills, this degree offers an intensive introduction to social anthropology.
We provide a programme of study that will enable you to engage reflexively with the particularities of your own cultural and social context as well as with the possibilities inherent in cross-cultural comparison.
Working within a rich and active research culture, we shall explore the distinctive nature of social anthropology and its contribution to a critical and informed understanding of the contemporary world – a world reflected in the diversity of our students and the wide variety of our research/ teaching interests.
Courses range from those offering an overview of theories and theorists to those examining specific issues such as kinship, gender, development and religion.
The programme will be delivered through lectures, seminars, group work and guided independent study. You will complete four compulsory courses and two optional courses over two semesters, after which you will work towards an independently researched dissertation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
The academic entry requirement is a UK Bachelor Honours degree with at least 2:1 or its international equivalent.
An official transcript and certificate (if the degree has been awarded) is required upon application. References are not required upon initial application but may be requested at a later stage in the application process.
Where work experience is taken into consideration, an up-to-date CV and work reference is required.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
