Course Summary:
The University of Buckingham is: o Home of the 2-year degree – less cost and more focus o Top for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide) o Top for Student Satisfaction (National Student Survey and Complete University Guide) o Small group teaching focused – student:staff ratio of 11:1 o Flexible – start your course in September or January If you are an EFL student looking for a course to improve your English while at the same time learning important language and communication skills for a variety of careers, particularly in business or the media (possibly in a multinational or media company), then this is a good course for you. This is a fast-track (2+ year) joint honours course covering the two major subjects of English language and communication (one third each) and a choice from a range of other subjects usually related to either applied language or communication (one third), particularly media- or business-related.
Modules:
Advertising, Applied Linguistics 1 & 2, Change in English, Discourse and Debate, Diversity in English, English for General Academic Purposes (September entry), English for Specific Academic Purposes 1 & 2, English Composition, English in Institutions, English in Society, English Language Teaching (ELT) Management, English Language Teaching (ELT) Marketing, Global Communication, Intercultural Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Media Discourse, Media Language, Media Studies, Modern English Language, Modern English Usage, News Management and Public Relations, Registers of English, Stylistics, TEFL Methods, TEFL Skills, Text Studies, Translation Methods, Translation Skills, Varieties of English.
Assessment Methods:
Teaching is carried out through a combination of lectures supported by seminars, workshops, tutorials and informal one-to-one discussion.. A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of Buckingham's faculty to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students. We believe in the surpassing value of the reading, discussing and understanding of great works of literature, not simply as processes that lead to higher levels of employability and the development of valuable critical skills (which they undoubtedly do) but as ends in themselves which are enriching and, ultimately, liberating. The assessment of individual modules within each course varies according to the subject. Assessment is usually by examination, assessed coursework, or a combination of the two.

A great small town, with the markets a definite highlight - they are a great opportunity to get bargain stuff for your flat, The locals are very friendly, and you'll definitely get to know everyone - the social life is quite intimate, think of it a bit like a giant 6th form rather than the typical university experience. The SU holds a lot of great events throughout the year, so there's loads to do.

    So far its great. I also think that the semesters are well thought. Since recession summerjobs are not readily available for international students in the UK and I really don't want to waste four months of my year in doing nothing.
