Teaching details
Teaching details

  • The summer research project starts about week 5 in term 3 (3.5) with a project report due in early September 2012.

  • The ‘Fusion technology’ module will be lectured in week 2 of term 2. Lecturers will be largely outside experts. Assessment will be largely by open book exam in week 3.1.

  • The ‘Frontiers of fusion workshop’ module will be presented in week 3.4. Poster component of laboratory presented here. Reports on the workshop due week 3.6.

  • Laboratory classes are held in term 1 and 2. Assessment is continuous (+ poster in FoF workshop).

  • Other lectured modules are given during terms 1 and 2 with examinations at the beginning of term 2 for modules finishing in term 1, and the beginning of term 3 for modules finishing in term 2.

  • The VLE is used to convey teaching information


Electives
Electives

  • Electives are optional modules of 10 credit value each.

  • Student must elect two modules.

  • Modules available are

    • ‘High performance computing’ [term 1]

    • ‘Astrophysical plasmas [term 1]

Your msc
Your MSc

  • Problem questions are set for core lectured courses (due Fridays – no marks if late).

  • The problem questions are worth 15% in the final assessment for each module.

  • Students need to achieve 50% in EACH module to pass the MSc.

  • Re-sits will be available in up to 40 credits. Compensation rules also apply.

  • The project is worth 60 credits. Laboratory is 30 credits. The ‘Fusion’ module is worth 20 credits. All other modules are 10 credits. Total for the MSc is 180 credits.

  • Circumstances affecting performance or progression: need to submit a mitigating circumstances form- available at - http://www.york.ac.uk/physics/internal/learning/illness-and-absence/

£6200 (2013/14)

All MSc students have a laptop and deskspace

provided for the year in the FLS.

All MSc in Fusion Energy are allocated a pastoral

care supervisor from the YPI staff and have a

supplied laptop for the course duration.

All MSc only courses are presented in the YPI, FLS
