Perhaps not surprisingly, in the area of Education, the Institute of Education received the most research income, securing over 22% of the total funding, or £11,610,000, compared to 2% received by Manchester Metropolitan University (just over £1 million). uk) When considering where to apply for postgraduate study, it might be helpful to examine these and other data collected by HESA, a good deal of which is available through annually-produced HESA publications and through their website (the reference list at the end of this chapter provides full details).

Programmes in Social Anthropology are expected to recognise and explore the following areas: • anthropological methodologies that build upon a solid epistemological basis taught through a combination of classroom discussion and hands-on practical exercises • anthropological practice which rests upon a critical and reflexive approach to knowledge, recognising that the construction and conduct of a programme of research are themselves social and cultural activities • seminar participation which trains students to follow through the process by which long-term fieldwork contributes to social scientific knowledge • the development of general and transferable skills such as critical and flexible judgement, interpersonal and collaborative skills, language acquisition, familiarity with survey methods, interviewing skills and social documentation • the development of discipline-specific skills in social understanding, awareness of context, cultural translation and mediation, and the ability to represent diverse epistemologies within a single frame.

However, to facilitate comparability across and between institutions, HESA collects a wide range of student-based information from UK universities. As with the research income data, all HESA student information is collected at the institutional and subject levels. At the institutional level, a number of institutions have large postgraduate populations, expressed as a proportion of their total student body. One may reasonably conclude that a sizeable postgraduate population in an institution provides an indicator of a healthy postgraduate community, one where postgraduates work alongside each other, sharing ideas, collaborating and supporting each other.
