In line with the Indonesian Policy, as laid down in the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP), strengthening the decentralisation process is another objective of the StuNed programme. Therefore attention is given to candidates working at local government level and those working outside Java. StuNed also aims at a balanced gender representation (minimum 50% women).

MSc and MA Scholarships in Languages, Swansea University
For the academic session 2007/08, Swansea University is offering up to 12 Taught Masters Bursaries to applicants from the UK or EU aiming to pursue MAs in Languages. Each award is worth GBP 1,500 towards tuition fees. Swansea University is also offering a number of International Office Postgraduate Scholarships. These awards make a GBP 1,000 contribution to fees for applicants from outside the EU. Both types of funding are available for the MA Translation with Language Technology and the MA Literary Translation.
MA Translation with Language Technology (MATLT)
The MATLT is a professionally focused, integrated course designed to ensure that entrants with proven foreign language competence emerge as successful and marketable future professionals equipped with the skills now in demand in the language services industry worldwide. Particular attention is paid to in-depth training with the latest Computer-Assisted Translation tools and to key techniques for building up translation specialisms. Our philosophy can be summed up in the phrase `hands on`: students learn by doing and we aim to teach strategies as much as solutions, based on our own extensive experience of working as and training translators. Successful MATLT graduates are now employed all over the world as freelance and in-house translators, project managers, terminologists, software developers and in many other capacities.
MA Literary Translation (MALT)
The MALT is designed to offer both an independent, intellectually stimulating scheme of study for advanced linguists and literary specialists, and a practical and theoretical training for those wishing to pursue literary translation in the course of their career. It is also suitable for practising translators who do not yet have but wish to gain formal qualifications. If you have a strong interest in literature and the specific features of literary expression in different languages, this flexible programme will give you a unique opportunity to develop your interests.
Both MA degree schemes can be pursued as full-time or part-time programmes. They are suitable for recent graduates of single or joint honours BAs (or international equivalents) in fields related to Languages, as well as for people with a less formally documented background who have significant relevant experience. All successful applicants for the MAs can be considered for either the Bursaries or the Scholarships, depending on their nationality.

PhD Studentship in Health Psychology at University of Plymouth CLOSING DATE: 12 NOON, WEDNESDAY 21 MARCH 2007
PhD Studentship Health Psychology In Practice Peninsula Medical School.
The Peninsula Medical School is a joint initiative between the Universities of Plymouth and Exeter and the NHS. This is a University of Plymouth appointment.
The Peninsula Postgraduate Health Institute works with the NHS, the Peninsula Medical School and the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth to offer an exciting range of PhD programmes. On successful completion the candidate receives a joint award from the University of Exeter and the University of Plymouth. Health Psychology in Practice: Understanding behavioural intervention processes for improving patient self-care in chronic illness.
As part of our commitment to research excellence, applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates for a full-time PhD studentship in the Peninsula Medical School’s Institute of Health and Social Care Research, working in the Institute’s Primary Care Research Group. The studentship will cover a tax-exempt stipend of £12,300 per annum and tuition fees at the home rate for a 3-year period. Candidates from countries outside the European Union will be liable for the difference between ‘home student fees’ and ‘foreign student fees’.
This project aims to improve our understanding of the psychological processes which are important in behavioural interventions for improving patient self-care of chronic illnesses. The consequences of poor self-care in people with chronic illnesses (e.g. medication use, lifestyle) are a major source of NHS cost and developing NHS systems to improve the support of patient self-care is central to current government policy. At the same time, the science of self-care intervention development and evaluation is a rapidly developing area in behavioural medicine, but one which still needs strengthening with empirical evidence and methodological development (Hardeman W et al. Health Educ Res 2005;20:676-87. Michie S et al. Quality and Safety in Health Care 2005;14:26-33). The proposed studentship will be conducted initially in the context of the piloting and trial evaluation of an intervention for promoting better asthma self-care. This is part of an ongoing programme of work developed by Dr Colin Greaves. The studentship will focus initially on addressing the following objectives:
Identifying suitable process measures to assess the inter-relationship between variables in a theoretical model of self-care behaviour modification in an asthma self-care intervention. Piloting the process measures framework alongside the intervention pilot (or in a separate study). Conducting qualitative research to elicit patient and practitioner experiences of using the intervention and to gain further insights into the processes involved. Applying the process measures framework and qualitative feedback in the planning of larger studies, including a randomised controlled trial evaluation of the asthma self-care intervention. The post will allow the student to develop a range of qualitative and quantitative research skills in a growth area of behavioural science and to gain experience in an applied research setting. This would be particularly relevant for candidates considering a career in behavioural science /behavioural medicine research. The student will be based in the Primary Care Research Group. Supervision will be provided jointly by Dr Colin Greaves (Health Psychologist and Senior Research Fellow) and Professor John Campbell (Professor of Primary Care and General Practice) and the work will be supported by the PMS Clinical Trials Methodology Unit. Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Colin Greaves (01392 262751, 0798 9895165 Colin.Greaves@pms.ac.uk).
Students should hold, or expect to obtain, a minimum of an upper-second class degree in a relevant health related subject. Relevant disciplines include psychology, health psychology /behavioural medicine.
