A core course enables you to study the most advanced theorists of and questions surrounding both the `new´ cultural theory of Deleuze, Negri and Agamben as well as classical British cultural studies of the tradition established by Stuart Hall. Your other core courses extend this groundwork by familiarising you further with both critical theory and methods of cultural analysis. In addition you take a range of options that introduce a material focus to complement the theory you have covered - for example, in digital and genetic media, in urban space, in the creative industries, in art and the visual culture of everyday life. You write a dissertation that consolidates this learning and prepares you for further study or engagement in the culture of today´s global capitalism.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
You should have a degree of at least UK upper second class (or equivalent) in a related subject.
