Our Additional Support for Learning programmes are designed to meet the needs of practising teachers and other professionals.
All the programmes courses are studied part-time, and you can select individual courses for your CPD needs, complete three courses for a Postgraduate Certificate, or complete six courses for a Postgraduate Diploma.
There is also the option to complete a Master of Education degree, for which you must also produce an independently researched dissertation.
This highly specialised programme will enhance your skills and confidence and develop your knowledge of the linguistic and cultural demands of the curriculum.
As well as increasing your ability to operate practically in the classroom, the knowledge you gain will allow you to develop your role in policy making, ensuring that bilingual learners and their families are not excluded from the full range of opportunities offered by the school.
Your learning will be in the form of lectures, seminars, small-group discussions and skill-development sessions. Most courses are offered in e-learning or blended learning format, combining on-campus and online study.
To complete the MEd degree, you will also produce an independently researched dissertation.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent in a relevant discipline. Alternatively, you may be considered on the basis of employment or relevant educational experience.
You should normally be registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland, and currently be working with, or have access to, pupils with English as an Additional Language.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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.
