We are delighted that you are joining us at Media and Cultural Studies (MaCS). We would like to meet you on Monday 23 September at the beginning of the Welcome Week - as a taster for the week please see the timetable for welecome week 2012 here. The timetable for 2013 will be posted during the summer.
The University will run an International Welcome for international students which will include both formal and informal sessions to help you settle in to your new life at Newcastle University. The International Welcome Programme 2013 will be available from the International Office useful guides.
We recommend before you start your course that you try to familiarise yourself with the media landscape in the UK, try reading some newspapers on line. It is also helpful if you can do some preparatory reading. Introductory reading lists are available for the MA Media and Journalism, MA International Multimedia Journalism, and MA Media and Public Relations programmes.
Information about the regisreation process will appear here before September. Please see this document from 2012 as a guide.
The combined timetable for all the three MA programmes for the academic year 2013-14 will be available here during the summer. Please bear in mind that the timetables at this stage are still provisional and can change until the beginning of the semesters. The timetable looks very complicated and very busy, but don't worry, all will be explained during Welcome Week. No student will have to attend all the sessions in the timetable, there are various options and groups that will come together to form an individualised timetable, based on your speicalisation and module choices.
The timetables for MA in Cross Cultural Communication and Media Studies will also be available here during the summer.
The timetables should be read in conjunction with the the Teaching Timetable Week Number Guide.
The MA handbook will appear here during the summer. You can find out here all the information you need about module choices, assignment dates and procedures etc.
Returning students will be able to register online for 2013/14 study.
