Students accepted onto the course will normally have already achieved an Honours degree, or its professional equivalent, and they will normally be expected to be working in a learning and teaching role in either the public or private sectors. Students who successfully complete the two modules: Planning and Managing Learning, and Assessment in Post-compulsory Education may be eligible to register for membership of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Higher Education is a rapidly evolving sector and there is an increasing emphasis on the quality of learning and teaching, as well as on the need to research. This programme will help you to keep up-to-date with new ideas in learning and teaching and key issues which affect the whole sector such as widening participation, e-Learning and the development of policy in Higher Education. Choosing the right learning and development opportunities as your career progresses will help you keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date and widen your career opportunities.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
TOEFL paper-based test score : 600
TOEFL iBT® test: 100

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
