MSc programme launch party
This event celebrates the launch of our new MSc programmes, revamped for 2013, with admissions now underway.
Many of the tutors at the heart of our MSc programme will be at this event. We want you to have a chance to ask about the programme and its opportunities. Also on hand will be our MSc Admissions team, ready to answer questions or arrange a further discussion later.

Why The Geek Manifesto?
The Geek Manifesto is our department's OneBook for 2012-13. The OneBook programme aims to increase intellectual integration across our academic programmes and encourages informal learning. Each year, we ask staff and students to read one book in common during the summer, then arrive for the new session ready to discuss both its substance and its broader value. The work comes into use across the curriculum.
