Course summary

Our Autism (Adult) course is part-time and delivered online, so that you can study from home alongside your other commitments. We have a proud history of using technology to deliver interactive learning in the most accessible ways to our students, across the UK and worldwide.

Our Autism (Adults) course will provide you with knowledge of the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome, based on theory, research and practice. You will be taught to consider how autism theory applies to the individuals that you support in their adult lives, and what this should mean for your own practice.

Autistic authors and researchers contribute to our study materials, so that you will gain insights into the diversity of the autistic experience, and learn about the range of individual and social barriers that can be experienced. The course will also encourage you think for yourself and you will use your professional skills to select and research topics of relevance to your own situation.

  • The University of Birmingham is a leading provider of degree-level education in autistic spectrum disorders in the UK - offering Professional Development courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
  • Our distance learning courses develop real insight and encourage reflective practice. You will be tutored by senior practitioners and researchers in the field of autism inclusion who work within the Autism Centre for Education and Research (ACER).
  • You will have access to an extensive library, research materials and a large online community of students in the field of autism.

The academic credits and qualifications on our part-time Autism (Adults) course can be used as a springboard to further study and we accept both vocational and academic qualifications as entry criteria.

Students can also exit with Postgraduate Certificate/Advanced Certificate.

Employability

All of our Autism (Adults) courses fall under the umbrella of Continuing Professional Development. They are regarded as evidence of professional specialism for practitioners working in the field, in whatever sector. Anecdotally we know from feedback that many of our students gain promoted posts or other means of formal recognition as a direct result of their Autism (Adults) qualification.

Students can also exit with PGCert and Avanced Cert awards.
