    The notes?

    I seriously doubt anybody is going to upload lecture notes for you (not that there is anyone here that probably could). If you mean the course outlines, then they are already uploaded in PDF files which are very easy to find on the Aston website.

    Could you post the link to the course outlines? I've tried looking for them but can't find them...
    And when can we register for classes? This is my first year at Aston and I haven't gotten any info about that yet.

    Thanks!

    That's all there is:
    http://www1.aston.ac.uk/study/postgr...ng-management/

    With regards to the OP's original question, lecture notes don't get you very far if your master is anything like mine you're expected to read far more than the lectures cover, books, academic articles, newspaper articles, ...

    So, my advice would be to read relevant books if possible, don't buy them just yet. The page I linked to includes the course outlines and gives an essential reading list, if you get your hands on any of them, that'd be good but as I said, don't buy them just yet.

    You might also want to start looking for relevant academic articles, Google Scholar can be helpful as long as you don't have access to proper academic databases.

    Then, you should also read the Financial Times, and try and relate the news in there to marketing.

    what do you mean there is no info on the dissertation? do you not know what a dissertation is?

    It's your own research project, sometimes the department publishes a list with interesting research topics and you can pick one, you can also develop your own topic. It most certainly will involve primary research. In the end you write a report of about 15,000 words on it.

    You would have a good idea about the dissertation if you attended the open day. I got to spend 40mins one on one with a lecturer partly responsible for me course. The impression I got is that not all contain primary research, but can do if you want.

    was that really for a master in marketing? I would be surprised, it may be possible for a BA to do a literature based dissertation or use purely secondary data (and even at my undergraduate they said, it's more difficult to get good marks when it doesn't contain primary research), but for a master, at least not possible at Strathclyde. Maybe it's to do with it being an MSc rather than an MA.

    Freshers week is for everybody, not just those starting their first year of undergraduate study. It's particularly useful to those just starting at this university, whether undergraduate or postgraduate, to find out about the societies, clubs, and activities that are open to you at university, get to know your classmates and fellow students.

    Normally, registration for everybody starting new at university takes place during Freshers Week, sometimes you'll be allocated a certain time slot depending on your course.

    You should get a letter with where and when you can register before you actually go there. There's also always the possibility to register after the official registration took place, in case you arrive late for whatever reason. In my class at Strathclyde, somebody arrived 4 weeks late and it wasn't a problem.
