Course summary

This suite of three year-long part-time programmes is for all health professionals involved in the education and training of undergraduates and postgraduates.

Each year is self-contained and a qualification is obtained after each year: Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PG Cert) in year one, Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) in year two; and, Masters (MEd) in year three.

This part-time programme is designed for health professionals involved in teaching at all levels, the PGCert allows you to develop your knowledge of theory and practice in teaching and learning. The PGDip and MEd focus on your skills as a researcher in education.

Employability

Students are usually already employed in the NHS or other health organisations such as universities and the military. The PG Certificate is HEA accredited, so on successful completion of the course, students are able to apply for professional recognition as Fellows of the Higher Education Academy subject to fulfilling some additional HEA requirements that are explained in the programme handbook.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
