Application and entry requirements

The PGCert in HE is aimed at academic staff at all levels. We also have some places available to Senior Professional Support Services (PSS) colleagues and those working at the University’s library and cultural assets.

Eligibility for non-academic staff depends on grade and relevance of role to the units available. All applications are assessed on an individual basis.

PhD students are not normally eligible for this programme, nor are Graduate Teaching Assistants or colleagues on fixed term contracts.

We encourage all participants to discuss the programme with their line managers before submitting an application.

Accredited Prior Learning (APL)

Please note that if you have already completed a UoM New Academics Programme, you will automatically receive 30 credits of APL.  If you have undertaken part or all of a PGCert in Higher Education, Academic Practice or Teaching and Learning at another institution, you may also be eligible for APL. All APL requests will be assessed on an individual basis at the beginning of the programme.
