Course summary

Programme Overview

This exciting opportunity will enable you to develop skills to supervise projects of research at postgraduate taught (PGT) and postgraduate research (PGR) levels. It will enable participants to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of current research contexts and pedagogies of supervision at postgraduate level.

Surveys of UK programmes highlight a lack of provision for supervisory practice, especially in creative disciplines. Focusing on the specific problems raised by creative disciplines and the issue of practice-led and/or practice-oriented research, this PgCert will offer a comprehensive, tailored experience in supervisor development, and is intended as a stand alone award that prepares its students for professional competencies in research supervision at a level appropriate to postgraduate study.

The PGCert Supervisory Practices in the Creative Disciplines offers:

Acquire supervisory and critical judgement skills, necessary to provide confident research supervision at postgraduate level. Develop knowledge and understanding of the pedagogies and contexts for research in and into supervisory practices, through focusing on research principles, practices and processesaims to offer the opportunity to:

  • Understand the histories and contexts of research, the development of creative practice research cultures in the UK and internationally, and current debates around research and research degrees policy
  • Promote reflective educational practice

The programme runs from January to December with applications open on a rolling basis. Applications close for the next session at the end of November to allow for processing and confirmation prior to the start of the programme in January.
