Application and entry requirements

The PGCert in HE is aimed at academic staff at all levels and Senior Professional Services (PS) 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.

How to apply

Online applications for 2019/20 entry will be invited from May 2020.

Accredited Prior Learning (APL)

The PGCert in Higher Education recognises a number of qualifications which may be presented as accredited prior learning (APL) towards course credits. A maximum of 30 credits APL may be requested.

Evidence to support an APL request may include a Fellowship or Senior Fellowship of the HEA or other related awards. Successfully completing portfolio requirements for the NAP would normally be sufficient. The award must have been gained prior to the start of the programme.

All APL requests will be assessed on an individual basis by mid-August of the incoming year.
