Graduate Studies in Great Britain

November 14, 2012

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Science Center Room #114

Marcia France

Tom McGlew, of the University of Edinburgh, will be giving a presentation on Wednesday, November 14 at 5:00 p.m. in the Science Center, Room A114 to discuss opportunities for graduate study in Great Britain. He will explain: how the current structures of graduate work in Britain have evolved in recent years; how 'taught' and research-focused masters degree programmes differ; what British universities look for in American applicants; how long it takes to complete a degree; how much graduate study costs in Britain; what possibilities exist for financial aid; and how to choose the program that is right for you. Students from all majors are welcome, and students interested in Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, and Philosophy are particularly encouraged to attend.
In addition, Dr. McGlew will discuss graduate study specifically at the University of Edinburgh, which is currently ranked as the sixth best university in Europe, and answer questions both about Edinburgh and the British system generally.
Dr. McGlew is an American who has made his academic career in Britain. Until recently he was Associate Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Chair of the Sociology Department at the University of Edinburgh.
