Course summary

Why this course?

The Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education is a flexible, academic development degree which normally takes one to two years' part-time study.

The course examines factors influencing teaching, learning and assessment in higher education and offers a range of intellectual and practical methods to inform, explore, and develop learning and teaching across the disciplines.

You'll be encouraged to draw from your own area or discipline and to explore contemporary issues relating to learning and teaching in these areas throughout the course.

All courses are delivered in our in-house teaching facilities. We use a number of technologies to enhance provision.

Learning & teaching

All classes are taught using experiential and reflective techniques to ensure learning outcomes are applicable, useful and based in authentic activity. Classes are flexible, allowing you to make choices based on your personal interests.

Classes involve a face-to-face element comprising roughly 16 hours, in addition to blended learning elements and individual study. Online elements are conducted through Myplace, the University's online learning environment. The fully online version of the course is in development.


Assessment types differ from class-to-class and align constructively with teaching and learning aims. Essays, presentations, individual projects and other methods are commonly used.


All SPARK classes are designed and delivered to help students enhance their current and future practice, providing opportunities for both career and personal development.
